ST-Koneistus, located in Ylöjärvi, is Finland’s largest hydraulic manifold and component supplier, specialising in heavy-duty special series.
The company needed new machining palettes and fasteners. The alternatives were to obtain the palettes from a machining center manufacturer and the fasteners from a specialised manufacturer, or… to obtain all the necessary items from Logistic TKT Systems Oy.
Tommi Peltonen, an entrepreneur and second-generation owner of ST-Koneistus contacted Logistic and we got together to outline the requirements. We soon discovered that there was a better solution than the so-called standard product.
The end result: better rigidity, accuracy and usable length.
– As we discussed the topic with Tommi, we thought about combining the machining palette and the fastener into a single package. This leads to better rigidity, accuracy and usable length, says entrepreneur and owner of Logistic TKT Systems Oy, Joonas Tammisto.
Utilising Logistic’s design services, the idea was rapidly transformed into 3D models and drawings. Logistic managed the whole subcontracting chain from casting and other raw materials to finished products. Because the assembly required utmost accuracy, machining its parts was possible only with a purpose-built machining center.
– Machines must be accurate and of the latest fashion which is why we have a long-term trust-based relationship with the German DMG. On the other hand, machines are useless if you do not know how to use them and this is why we have also focused on training and related activities, Joonas continues.
