More than 60 representatives, primarily decision-makers from the tool and die industry and suppliers, participated at the event to cooperatively benchmark for the first time in this fashion. Marktspiegel Werkzeugbau evaluates German tool and die makers as well as series production manufacturers anonymously according to their competitiveness, thus enabling the assessment of positioning in direct comparison to the industry environment.

More than 60 representatives from the tool and die industry and supplier companies met at OSG in Göppingen, Germany to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences on July 7, 2022.

The focus of the event was not only on insights into data and facts, but also on current market development and trends. “Becoming better with industry knowledge” was the motto that ran through the entire event.

Innovations for the Tool and Die Industry

OSG maintains absolute control over every aspect of its manufacturing capabilities. OSG products are produced in-house – from the production of tool material, creation of tool geometry, to the development of its own proprietary coatings – the three vital elements in the manufacturing of superior cutting tools. OSG’s expertise in the tool and die industry is demonstrated by the AE-H series, the company’s latest milling innovation designed for hardened steel applications.

AE-CPR4-H 4-flute long neck corner radius carbide end mill, one of the latest additions to OSG’s AE-H end mill series for hardened steel applications.

The AE-H end mills are available in a wide range of configurations with stable machining capability at large cutting depths and long tool life. OSG’s original DUROREY coating with SiC structure provides superior heat resistance, wear resistance and high surface quality optimized for hardened steel milling. Through a tour of the production facility, it became clear to visitors in all facets that OSG products are manufactured in exclusive quality. In addition to tooling solutions, OSG also offers comprehensive services such as machining strategies for standard products as well as optimization of machining routines at the client’s facility.
