  • Tool Presetters

  • It’s all a question of setting!

    High-performance, precise tool setting is essential when the highest degree of manufacturing precision and maximum efficiency of production resources are required. We are convinced that you will find the most appropriate solution within our extensive range of KENOVA set line tool presetters. Tailored to every use and every budget. KELCH can offer you the widest range of vertical tool presetters. The portfolio ranges from the simplest entry-level models through to machines with multiple CNC axes.

    Are you looking for special applications?

    KELCH has them all.

    After all, it is precisely special solutions for out of the ordinary measuring tasks that differentiate a supplier of expertise. For example, our patented module monitoring system MoDetec automatically monitors whether the fitted insert module is the correct one for the adapter chosen in the control. It is now impossible to use an incorrect insert module! And as reference values are immediately available, there is instant assignment to adapters, machines and tools.

        When it is a question of workpiece measurement and presetting, KELCH should be the first name you contact. For after all, KELCH has accumulated more than 75 years of experience in this sector. You will benefit from this experience, whether it is for the selection of materials or the correct combination of individual components. Our reliable and professional advice will ensure that you find the correct and appropriate device for for your needs. KELCH offers the widest range of presetters, in both vertical and horizontal designs. You can be sure that with KELCH you will find the right product for your requirements so that you will increase the quality of your production and therefore save money.

        We place the highest possible value on high-grade components and high-precision mechanical machining. The overriding premise at KELCH is: “Accuracy comes from precise mechanics”. Where other companies rely on software corrections, we offer mechanical stability. Due to the stable grey cast iron, the base and the tower are considerably more resistant to temperature changes and machine vibrations. Furthermore, tools with a weight of up to 150 Kg can be measured on our devices without any problems. If heavier weights ever need to be measured, then we can also facilitate this using an additional mechanical support.

        A spindle of unsurpassed quality forms the first interface to the tool. An ergonomic one-hand operation of the optical carrier enables the fast placement of the tool in the cutting picture. Easy to use and clearly-structured software that delivers the results you need rounds off the package.

              • Do you know the difference between KELCH and a precision tool?

                Precisely, there is none. Precise simply remains precise.

                For optimum machining results it is not only necessary to have efficient machinery and tools but also the corresponding interface. In this area we offer innovative solutions which guarantee the highest precision and stability:

                For example i-tec®, the leading system for inductive shrinking technologies, but also ISO, HSK and PSK tool holders as well as useful accessories.

                  • Workshop Logistics

                  • The most efficient way of transporting tools and having them available is provided by the flexible KELCH transport and storage system.

                    Our sophisticated solutions in the workshop logistics area make sure that the right tool will be available at the right place and at the right time. You name it: all-purpose tool carriers, transport and storage trolleys or work-shop equipment – KELCH products get your production moving and bring order to your tools.

                    TUL carriers are the perfect transport and storage unit for your tools. VariTUL offers variable solutions for flexible transportation and storage, so that tools are readily available, or so that the equipment in question will get to the right destination.
                      • Measuring equipment

                      • Double standards when measuring?

                        Not with KELCH. Our answer is precision.

                        What is a manufacturing process without controls? Basically, it isn’t worth a penny. That’s why we go with the saying “Control is good – measuring with KELCH is better“. With our measuring equipment, users and customers are on the safe side.

                        We offer a wide range of products for production- related measuring and testing technology, so that the desired quality targets can be met. The KELCH production program ranges from manual dial indicators and callipers, gauges for the measurement of HSK tools and spindle tapers up to our electronic pull-back power measuring device for machine tool spindles,
                        called ”SAFECONTROL“.

                                    Within the context of modern tool management, Kelch Engineering Services deals with situation analysis, planning and project management, system integration and process implementation, as well as the ­digitalisation of all processing work in production. This involves defining a technically and economically optimum process chain, as well as optimising NC programs and tool plans within work scheduling.

                                    The Aim

                                    The aim of the Engineering process is to identify the actual cost drivers in the process. Significant savings can generally be achieved by optimising existing tools. Specially developed multilingual software tools support this systematic approach, enabling a comparative analysis of different situations to be made. The results reveal hidden potential for rationalisation, which the majority of customers can then often translate into ready money.

                                    Operate-Leasing / Finance-Leasing

                                    The lessee purchases the temporary right to use a capital asset that can generally be cancelled at any time. The lease contract is essentially the equivalent of a civil lease contract. Unlike medium- and long-term ­financing, operating leasing focuses of providing for the short-term use of the capital asset, enabling customers to overcome bottlenecks in production or in sales.

                                    A key feature of operating lease contracts is that the lessor's financing costs are not generally amortised within the term of the contract. Full amortisation can only be achieved by the lessor leasing the asset several times and ultimately selling it.
