KRÄMER+GREBE opens new deep-hole boring facility


By investing in SAMAG’s deep-hole boring facility, KRÄMER+GREBE is filling an important gap in the process of manufacturing contoured parts for die-casting moulds and inorganic core boxes. Our consistent objective is to continue to improve production methods both qualitatively and quantitatively, while also achieving the highest levels of precision and creating our own unique terminology, without ignoring rationality and universality.

The SAMAG TFZ3, with its technical specifications, achieves maximum bore depths ranging from 1,800 mm to 40 mm in one go, thereby meeting all the requirements for the tempering systems of complex components.

Moreover, it also boasts a replaceable milling head designed for horizontal pre-machining which has a milling capacity of 475 cm3/min. Due to the range of motion, X/Y 2,000 mm/1,650 mm, there is no limit to how large the contour components can be. Thanks to the increased table load of 20t, die-casting moulds can be easily processed.

Th 3D CAM system GIBcam-DRILL was selected as a CAM programming system for creating NC drilling programs. This makes it possible to easily program and execute bore holes even if they intersect or occur multiple times.

The company is now fully equipped to create high-tech moulds for any casting process and to tackle the technical challenges that come with modern lightweight casting components.

Symposium to celebrate the company’s anniversary


To mark the company’s ninety-year history, business partners and friends from the automotive and foundry industry were invited to a very special event in November 2012.

A number of top speakers (Dr. Andreas Fent from BMW, Eric Fritsche from Eisenwerk Brühl, Volkswagen’s Dr. Jens Hilbig, Dr. Wolfgang Lenz of Neue Halberg Guss, as well as Thomas Achenbach, representing Krämer + Grebe) spoke on the topics of tool-making and casting technology at an absorbing symposium, and invited participation in a subsequent debate involving the panel of experts.

The context of the event offered an ideal space for a joint dialogue on past and future developments. Last but not least, the customer statements expressed the sustainable and central role that tool-making has and will have.

During the event, company visits, presentations, and demonstrations of simulation, design, and manufacturing were offered.

A fascinating day came to a festive end in a very special atmosphere. This day, with its culinary, musical, and acrobatic highlights will be happily remembered both by the guests and the K + G team.
