Simon Seeger further improved his father`s ideas on how production could be automated and economically optimised. He focused on the core processes of electrode milling and the subsequent eroding of the tools.
While the construction of the electrodes and the creation of the CAM programs were carried out quickly, the production resulted in a bottleneck: the milling of the electrodes and die-sinking EDM were extremely time-consuming steps in tool production. If they couldn’t be carried out unmanned, the machines would be at a standstill in the evenings and at weekends. Automation was therefore the solution to improve run and delivery times. Equally, the company wanted to involve its employees in the process and improve their work-life balance.
