Our focus is on the integrated view of the machining process. We support you in all phases; from production optimization to the construction of new production lines. We thereby incorporate our tools and our know-how into your application.

Machinery and equipment 

Are you the manufacturer of the machines or the customer who later produces with the machine?

Our joint project begins with the analysis of your task. On the basis of the data provided by you on the workpiece to be produced (as 3D data) and the information about your machine environment, we start with the tool design. We check machining parameters and compare them with the materials to be machined.  Then we create a tool list (with collision considerations of workpiece, clamping, machine or fixture).

In the next step, we accompany you during the setup of the tools on your machine and their acceptance on site.

In close consultation with the machine manufacturer, we implement any necessary changes to the tools within a short period of time. Finally, you will receive a documentation of the tools used including the technical application data.

In series operation, our technology will continue to assist you in an advisory capacity. Your machine operators have a direct contact and contact person at SPPW who solves problems quickly and customer-oriented.

We incorporate further technical developments in geometries, cutting materials or coatings into your tools in a continuous optimisation process.

Of course, you can make use of our project consulting not only for the original equipment of your machine, but we will also gladly help you to convert existing production plants to new workpieces and processes.

You benefit from constant communication channels and technical standards throughout the entire project period.


Using industrial robots for production automation is one of the most economical ways to increase productivity in production. Robots are reliable and flexible, because the working area of an industrial robot can be extended comparatively cost-effectively.

The robot axes result in a high degree of freedom in machining, which enables good accessibility of even complex components and avoids reclamping.

The disadvantages of the robot compared to a conventional CNC machine are the significantly lower stiffness and the resulting manufacturing tolerances.

Therefore, tools are often used which, like hand tools, pilots have guide pins or a long gate.


  • Longer service life
  • Process reliability
  • Higher cycle times
  • Delivery security


Due to their high hardness, hardened steels are mainly used in mechanical engineering for wear parts.
Most hardened steels have hardnesses up to 54 HRc. They are mainly used for plastic injection moulds and in mechanical engineering.
Steels with hardness up to 62 HRc are mainly used for forming tools and heavy-duty machine parts, as well as for injection moulding of fibre plastics.
Steels with hardnesses above 62 HRc are used in the manufacture of tools for cold and hot forming, in toolmaking for spindle bearings, valves or other heavily stressed parts.
The focus is on tool life, high process speed and precision.

-> Most SPPW tools are designed as universal tools, i.e. suitable for machining a wide range of materials. We recommend the use of coated tools for steel machining. A suitable cutting material must be selected depending on the hardness of the material. From a tensile strength above 30 HRc (1000 MPa) we recommend the use of VHM tools, above 45 HRc only coated tools and for hardnesses above 54 HRc suitable special geometries.


Aluminium alloys (Mg, Si, Cu, Zn)
are very different in their machinability. For example, Al6061 is difficult to machine while Al7075 (AlZnMgCu1.5) is easy to machine.
Depending on the alloy, microstructural changes may occur during storage which cause changes in strength.

-> SPPW aluminium milling cutters have large grooves for optimum chip removal and between 1 and 3 cutting edges.
The cutter surfaces are often polished and coated (Dia.HC, Alu.Cut, Z.Cut) to prevent weld build-up.


can no longer be plastically deformed after hardening. They burn when reheated. They are resistant to solvents and have no tendency to swell or creep. Thermosets are used in the manufacture of car bodies and structural parts. In addition, the matrix of most fibre plastics (CFRP, GFRP) consists of thermosets. The most important groups within thermosets are epoxy resins (EP) and polyurethanes (PU), supplemented by formaldehyde resins (PF, MF, MPF, UF) and silicone rubber (SI). In the processing of thermoplastics, it is crucial to keep the temperature in the process low in order to avoid thermal damage during machining.

-> SPPW Rapid-Line cutters for plastics have particularly sharp sheaths and a polished surface. This enables high feed rates and clean cutting edges without burr formation.


are characterized by high resistance to corrosion and acids.
The following synonyms are also used
STAINLESS, INOX, NiRO, RSH, V2A or V4A. Stainless steel is distinguished by its crystal structure into ferritic and austenitic grades.
With a nickel content of more than 8%, they are in austenitic form and have favourable machining properties.
The most frequently used alloys are 1.4301 - X5CrNi18-10 (V2A), relatively soft NiRO steel for general use, and
1.4571 - X6CrNiMoTi17-12-2 as well as 1.4404 - X2CrNiMo17-12-2 (also V4A) with increased molybdenum content of 2% for increased corrosion resistance, use e.g. in salt water.

-> SPPW-Inox milling cutters have an increased spiral angle between 40° and 55° and partly show an unequal pitch.
For drills, at least HSS-E05 is required as cutting material. SPPW also offers special drilling and threading tools for machining stainless steels
