More than 1000 new products

06.10.2015

The company's trade fair slogan is "THE CUTTING EDGE – Solutions for top-quality performance" and the KOMET GROUP will be showcasing more than 1000 new products for efficient machining at the EMO Milano 2015. "Achieving a competitive advantage by using cutting-edge technology is the promise we are making to our customers," is how Dr. Christof Bönsch, Managing Director of the KOMET GROUP, describes the meaning behind this year's trade fair slogan. "Customer focus and process optimisation are our primary concerns," Dr. Bönsch goes on to explain, "because increasing performance, productivity and efficiency for our customers is – for us – the principle driving force behind the development of new products."


Complete product portfolio

In addition to the familiar tool portfolio for high-precision drilling, reaming and threading, the KOMET GROUP will, in particular, be presenting at the EMO 2015 an extensive new range of high-performance milling cutters, thereby emphasising once again its leading position in the area of technology and innovation. In addition to the already successful KOMET® Quatron hi.feed, KOMET® hi.aeQ and KOMET® hi.apQ range of milling cutters, six further indexable insert milling cutter systems are now also included in their ex-stock range. KOMET has also extended its leading position in bore machining as a result of a consistent further development of its product range.

Technology precursor in Industry 4.0

With the ToolScope system, the subsidiary KOMET®  BRINKHAUS provides an efficient, high-end technology in the area of machine and process monitoring. With the new firmware version 10 and its user-friendly applications, the assistance system for machining production now marks a milestone in Industry 4.0.


Investment in innovation

Management at KOMET is extremely pleased with the business transactions and growth in turnover achieved in the current year. Dynamic growth is particularly evident at the European subsidiaries. "Growth in the first half of the year was above 10 percent," says Matthias Heinz, Managing Director of the KOMET GROUP, "and we expect to see a continuation of this extremely positive trend for the second half of the year." The focus of investments, which are being maintained at a continuously high level, is centred on the area of innovation. "We invest around 8% of turnover in development," Heinz goes on to explain. In the current business year, our main interest has been primarily the expansion of our own carbide production.


KOMET Italy

Italian mechanical engineering is highly specialised, and is traditionally oriented towards export. For more than 30 years, KOMET Italy has been part of the internationally operating corporate group, and works in close collaboration with the other international offices. With a growth of 14 percent in the first half of 2015, the subsidiary, which was established in 1981 as the second overseas branch site, has developed to become the strongest European sales company in terms of turnover. KOMET Italy has its own engineering plant and develops technically sophisticated products and services that are especially designed to meet the requirements of the Italian market and its customers.
