What are the benefits?
Setting up profile tooling on a CNC is a laborious process that can take from two to eight hours
Eliminate the need for set up time so you can focus on fabricating worktops. Human error is almost gone with the operator simply needing to copy a set of measurements into the CNC operating system, no more tools accidentally damaged during set up.
The CNC is a bottleneck
Due to the accuracy of the system, tooling can run faster than ever before. The tool can now perform the way it was intended by the manufacturer by taking off the correct amount of stock.
Time is often wasted by running multiple passes to achieve the high standards strived for
Promoting a right first-time culture and ensuring time is not wasted. A more accurate setup allows for a better finish; this can have a knock-on effect in a hand finishing department and reduce the amount of time required to complete work.
Your tools often need to work hard to achieve the perfect finish
With the accuracy of OPTIMO the tooling now only works as hard as it needs to, so the expected lifespan is exceeded every time.
All Profiles, All Machines
Your production time can be wasted on complicated set ups.
OPTIMO allows for any profile to be set up in the same way, which means no more having to waste production time on complex set ups.
How does it work?
Simply tell us the shape you need setting up, send us the required amount of tool holders and we do the rest
Measuring takes place at Stonegate Precision Tooling using the Main Axis Zares system.
We securely package and send the tools back to you with the measurements needed for the tools to perform.
Once you receive the tools, install them into the machine with the new measurements and you are ready to go.
What do we offer?
One-time set up:
OPTIMO allows for any profile to be set up in the same way which means no more having to waste precious production time on complex set ups.
An in-depth collaboration to improve your business efficiencies. We investigate the systems within production at your request and ensure that you are running at optimum capacity. Armed with the knowledge of countless machines, tools, processes, and experience within the industry we can advise on any aspect of fabrication. An initial analysis to understand your needs in the CNC department means we provide just the right amount of tooling for you at a cost that is spread over a 12 to 24-month period.
We will provide tools set up ready to run and allocate a charge per linear metre.
All our tools are made in Italy, so you can have peace of mind you are only receiving the highest quality products for your machines
He's got those Ogees working amazingly andhe really knows his stuff!
He helped me figure out some stuff on our Bavaloni, even though he hasn't used that machine before... he's a total credit to Stonegate"
Because of OPTIMO we have taken out a whole process, halving our production time.
We are now doing double the work with the same machinery and number of people. The quality of the work is better, and our polishers / finishers carry out quality control themselves, which is a better use of their time as well.
We are also spending less time handling the stone and the finished work surfaces meaning we are also saving space in the workshop as less storage is now needed. Can take on extra roles and responsibilities, more jobs off the machines”
