The Roth(e) thread – This is how we work

Project management – transparent, on schedule, reliable

A personal project leader sees your request through from the concept phase to tool delivery and beyond. Your contact at Roth is thus full of information at all times as to technical details and schedules. Transparency and adherence to schedules for us are as much a matter of course as are the highest quality standards in our work.

Tool design – innovation at the highest level

Our product developers work at 30 CAD workstations consistently with 3D CAD systems and software solutions by Siemens, which are compatible with all interfaces in general use today.

Our service incorporates mould-flow analyses to calculate mould cooling, analysis of component distortion, shrinkage and cycle time as well as support in article design for the application of IMD/IML technology. Cutting-edge production methods, such as for instance the rapid prototyping method, together with well-conceived production processes make for maximum efficiency – and thus minimise your costs.

Tool design and development – quality and the highest precision

Thanks to our ultra-modern machine pool and well-thought-out production processes, we work highly efficiently and with a minimum of manual labour. This allows us to guarantee consistent quality and total precision in our tools and moulds. Working in 24/7 multi-shift operation enables the shortest delivery and reaction times. Our fully automated milling line and superior range of modern eroding technology lead to extremely short cycle times with maximum dimensional accuracy.

To complete production our tool-assembly specialists assemble all tested and calibrated components into top-quality, reliable tool solutions – for total tool weights of up to 16 tonnes and plate sizes of up to 2,000 millimetres.

Technical centre – for series production quality

A new tool that functions smoothly and works effectively from the first day? That’s the reality with us thanks to the Roth technical centre. From the first functional testing through the qualification phase to the mapping of a series-production process, we make the tool solutions developed for you fit for purpose for everyday operation at your plant.
