Innovative service for customers


With its acquisition of Brinkhaus GmbH, the KOMET GROUP is expanding its product portfolio in the field of process management and quality control

The KOMET GROUP took over Hanover-based Brinkhaus GmbH on 1st March 2012. Brinkhaus GmbH manufactures monitoring and control systems for machine tools. Under the name of KOMET BRINKHAUS, the KOMET GROUP is expanding its product range by adding further trend-setting technology. "Under the heading of TOOLS PLUS IDEAS, we are consistently striving to reach our goal of constant product innovation", says Dr Christof Bönsch, Managing Director of the KOMET GROUP. The KOMET GROUP is currently the only tool manufacturer that is expanding its services into the area of process management.

The ToolScope system is based on a new type of technology in the area of process and machine monitoring. A specially patented method for statistical process control not only enables monitoring for tool breakage, but also focuses on substantially fewer anomalies during production. The ToolScope system is impressive thanks to its ease of operation and simple and secure application in different fields. For the first time, therefore, the system provides a method for continuous quality control during the process.

"The combination of process expertise and monitoring technology brings the service aspect to the forefront for customers, and, in this regard, is unique", says Dr Jan Brinkhaus, founder and Managing Director of Brinkhaus GmbH. With the takeover by the KOMET GROUP, the company can provide its customers with an international sales and service network, and also drive forward the expansion of its development capacity. The KOMET BRINKHAUS plant will remain in Garbsen, in the district of Hanover, under the management of Dr Jan Brinkhaus.
