Design Technologies International (DTI) was set up in 1991 and nowadays it enjoys an established position in the field of development and production of heavy duty machine tools in the product lines of milling and turning. New materials for aviation, power supply, railway and defense applications requires new techniques of machining. DTI develops machine tools for this new materials with the focus on increase of productivity and reduction of production costs for our customers. We combine power and accuracy in one single machine tool.
Over the first 13 years DTI was a Polish – American company, therefore its basic areas of business operation were Poland and the United States. From 2004 shareholders in the company are mainly Polish citizens and the markets of sales expanded into the European Union and Russia. In 2016, DTI became a member of the HACO-GROUP. As a member of an international group, we are able to provide worldwide service to our customers.
Our engineering team has more than 25 years’ experience in key turn projects. We design solutions, with the focus on innovation, that results in tailor made machines tools. DTI machines are developed with the latest finite element analysis software to optimize a high rigid machine structure, and new technology features to maximize machine performance.
DTI machine tools consist of first class components mainly coming from Germany, such as Siemens, Heidenhain, Schneeberger, Rittal, Hydac, SKF, …
Within the framework of the development of modern technologies DTI has been maintaining a long-standing cooperation with academic centers, above all with the University of Technology of Gliwice.
Step 1: Increasing productivity by 3 times.
To achieve this target a special team was established including:
Step 2: Tooling
To achieve this target Kennametal has chosen the best available tooling and has calculated the cutting parameters including:
Step 3: Existing production problems
WG people have indicated the following existing production problems:
Step 4: Preparing new design
DTI’s designers prepared the new concept of the machine including all the information from steps No 1 to No 3. PCC have named the machine HOGGER II.
Step 5: Evaluating results
6 months after installation, analyze, measure improved productivity.
