DIRECTLY TRANSFERRING MEASUREMENT DATA
Maschinenfabrik Alfing Kessler relies on the UNISET-V standard setting fixture from MAPAL
Handwritten notes, printed labels, indirect communication and error sources – in future this will all be a thing of the past in the manufacturing of crankshafts at Maschinenfabrik Alfing Kessler. Therefore, when the time came for the new acquisition of a setting fixture, the requirements for the device were therefore the possibility of a direct connection to the turning-milling centres together with robustness and simple handling. The crankshaft manufacturer decided on the UNISET-V standard from MAPAL.
dear business associates,
For the MAPAL Group, 2017 came to an end as a very eventful year with new challenges. This is also true for me personally. I celebrated my 75th birthday and took an important decision for the company. After having been with MAPAL for more than 48 years, the time has come to pass the responsibility for the company on to the next generation.
Not only is the long-term planning horizon an advantage of a family-owned business, but also the possibility of a gradual transition of the responsibility. I am therefore very happy that I have been working together with my son Jochen for many years. In this period of time he continually assumed responsibility for more and more areas of business. On 1 January 2018 he succeeded me as President of the MAPAL Group so that I can gradually step down. I am certain that my son will lead MAPAL into a successful future.
I would like to thank you for many years of good and trusting cooperation and I would ask you to extend this trust to my son.
Dr Dieter Kress
dear business associates,
Even though it had been planned for a long time that my father would one day hand over the businesses and responsibility for the MAPAL company, the transition was a large step for both of us. Because with MAPAL, my father is handing over to me his life’s work that in the last almost fifty years, he has turned into what it is today.
I am very grateful for the faith he is placing in me. Be assured that I will approach my new task with the greatest possible commitment and will continue to manage the company in line with my father. Therefore we will continue to face challenges, such as digitalisation or electro mobility for example, early on and with the necessary far-sightedness. Always with the aim to remain your technology partner and preferred contact for all topics related to machining.
In this respect, I look forward to a continuous cooperation based on trust and partnership with you and many exciting projects.
Dr Jochen Kress
