TEMSA has purchased a new coordinate-measuring machine Mitutoyo Crysta Apex S to be used exclusively by the erosion and HSC departments. This new acquisition is aimed to improve the pre-setting of the tools to be processed there, since EDM, Wire EDM and HSC are the most important among the manufacturing processes in TEMSA.
The increasing relevance of TEMSA in the powder metallurgical market and the rising complexity of the tools for cold forming makes necessary to apply thorough controls even between intermediate processes. Thus, together with our EROWA system high reliable and standardized measurements will be performed in a very fast and agile way.
The Mitutyo Crysta Apex S is a high precision device (in the range of 1.7µm) and is able to correct temperature variations between 16° and 26°. In addition to point-to-point measurement, the MPP-310Q and Mitutoyo Laser probes provide a contact/non-contact scanning function.
This device, together with the last acquisitions accomplished during the last 2 years have completely renovated the most important department in TEMSA – Erosions and HSC – in each of its machines. This prepares TEMSA to respond with high flexibility and quality to the most challenging markets and clients.
TEMSA goes on with new purchases. This time it has been a new AC Progress VP2, like the last machine, as well from the swiss company GF Machining Solutions. This machine will strengthen the Wire EDM department, becoming the 5th machine working in it.
AC Progress VP2 represents another step forward to improve productivity in the high-value processes. The key point of this machine are similar to other machines with AGIE technology: maximum precision, high quality surface finish and perfect repeatability. In addition this machine offers the advantage of using 2 different wires on a single-wire system, also called Duo TEC technologies, which allows save time and wire cost.
This new acquisition together with the new hole drilling EDM, TEMSA will reinforce all departments working in high-value process with up-market machinery: HSC, inner grinding, Spark EDM and Wire EDM. TEMSA gets so ready for the new challenges coming.

TEMSA keeps pace with the plans of innovation and automation of its processes. The latest improvement has been another Studer CT730 for inner grinding. This model is specially designed for grinding of medium diameters of very hard materials, like tungsten carbide.
This is the second CT730 and it is a logical consequence of the current plan of machine purchases in order to strengthen the automation of production processes. Machines like this, along with our CAD-CAM system, allow avoiding human interference as much as possible.
Studer CT730 provides several advantages: On one hand it produces homogeneous radius with perfect tangency; moreover, it makes possible a perfect repeatability of those inner shapes for serial production and on the other hand it achieves a great surface finish before polishing.
This second Studer CT730 will help TEMSA enhancing its productivity for the so called easy tooling, allowing us to offer our customers a great variety of tools with a challenging price.
