We explain how LEWA Attendorn developed a TURNKEY process solution for the mechanical machining of manual transmission components for its customer.

Customer requirement:

TURNKEY process solutions (stand-alone machining centers incl. peripherals and process) for the mechanical machining (milling & drilling) of manual transmission components while meeting the highest quality requirements and the shortest cycle times.

Our solution:

3 pieces of vertical, 5-axis high-performance machining centers (FANUC Robodrill) with corresponding peripheral components:

  • Chip management and coolant supply
  • Emulsion / oil mist extraction systems
  • tool breakage and wear controls
  • Hydraulic media supply for clamping devices
  • Component-specific, hydraulic clamping devices incl. air support control (airsensoring)


The customer added value:

  • cost-optimized and successfully used in series production (24/7) many times over
  • maximum flexibility and quick changeover to other components thanks to user-friendly control and fixture technology (KISS principle)
  • low personnel requirements due to only one system operator
  • can be scaled according to the required production capacity
  • are mobile and can be relocated very quickly within the company or within the group (plug and produce principle)
  • are designed for several production life cycles and thus also for the possible "reuse" case
  • increased system availability / redundancy thanks to high-performance machining centers with their own peripherals
  • minimal space requirement
