Press Brake Productivity Letter: WILA at EuroBlech


This Productivity Bulletin will inform you about WILA's revolutionary developments in the field of tooling software which will be shown at the EuroBlech in Hanover (October 25 till October 29).


Innovation: WILA Tool Advisor

Perfect press brake tools selected, designed and ordered online.

The WILA Tool Advisor is a unique feature in the Webshop. The intelligent software makes it possible to easily resolve bending issues and immediately receive online advice about appropriate WILA press brake tools. This is our way of supporting the engineering processes of our customers. 

Machine and plate details can be entered into the Tool Advisor in advance. These details can then be used to quickly and easily draw the intended profile in 2D or enter the parameters. The details are used by the Tool Advisor to show appropriate standard tools or offer the opportunity to personally design a special tool. Price and delivery time are shown immediately (also for specials) and it is also possible to place an order. 

The Tool Advisor will be launched during EuroBlech.


Innovation: Automation

When capital investment is high, productivity must increase for acceptable Return On Investment (ROI). Critical factors are for example flexibility, complexity and change-over times because of the wide variety of products, low volume per batch and the complexity of number of bends per product. Besides that it's important to control the process. 

To provide a flawless solution for these critical factors it's becoming more and more interesting to bend in an automated environment. WILA makes it possible to bend small batches of various products fully automatically with the Automated Tool Change (ATC)-Gripper, ATC Tooling and storage system. In combination with WILA's Tooling Identification and Positioning System (TIPS)* the tooling set-up in the press brake is no longer the limiting factor in the variety of parts that can be formed entirely unmanned.

During EuroBlech you can find this complete set-up at our stand.  

*TIPS is an integrated part of the press brake control system, and helps to identify tools and to continuously read their position. 

Innovation: WILA Webshop

WILA's Webshop has been up and running for the European market since 1 June. The Webshop features a comprehensive overview of standard top and bottom tools and accessories. The Webshop can also be used to request quotes, place orders, check pricing and real time inventory availability.

This Webshop is unique because it involves collaborating with our Authorized Service Partners, who have been selected via a registration process. WILA places great emphasis on collaborating with these local service partners so they can offer you the best possible support. This means you will always have a direct point of contact in your region, while simply placing your orders online. Product delivery, as well as billing, will be carried out directly by WILA. These online possibilities, and collaboration with our Authorized Service Partners, help to reduce response times and speed up the logistical process, while continuing maintain trusted relationships.

Besides the European Webshop, WILA also launched its American Webshop on 1 September in order to offer better service in the American market.
