Save time and money with every tool change. The ZOLLER costs/benefits calculator calculates your company's potential savings. ZOLLER measuring devices for tool presetting impress with their efficiency and are amortized in a short time. Machine downtimes are reduced by at least 15% with measured and preset tools. This saves you at least $ 15,000 per machine, per shift, per year.



The cost/benefit calculation is based on the following parameters:

  • ZOLLER guarantees you savings of at least $ 17,000 per machine, year and shift if preset tools are used.
  • According to a study by RWTH Aachen (Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen, German University), tool costs of 10% of the machine value are incurred each year.
  • With ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions you increase your productivity by at least 5%.

Productivity Increase as a Result of Using ZOLLER Presetting and Measuring Machines

4.52 minutes of machine downtime per hour and per machine are caused by tools that are loaded into the machine while insufficiently (if at all) set, measured and prepared. By using a ZOLLER presetting and measuring machine, this time can be used for production instead. Over the year, this additional time adds up to a measurable increase in productivity. For the example calculation, we have reduced this calculated value, as a result of measurements in the automotive industry, to 3 minutes of machine down time, per hour, per machine, and we have assumed 15 –25 tool changes per day.

Formula per machine: Time savings (in minutes) x # of Tool Changes x Shifts x Hourly Rate of Machine

Productivity Increase by 5 % as a Result of ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions

With a tool management software, such as ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions, you can increase your productivity by at least 5%. According to a survey by the RWTH Aachen University, Germany (Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen), the annual tooling costs equate to 10% of the machine value.

Formula: 8 Hours per Day x # of Shifts per Year x Hourly Rate x 5%

Reduction in tool costs by 2 % per year

Studies by RWTH Aachen University, Germany (Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen) prove that exactly the same tool costs are incurred for a machine tool in 10 years as the machine itself cost to begin with. With ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions, you can save 20% of these tool costs — a saving of 2% per year of the machine purchase price. A look at the tool costs in your company’s annual accounts will show you the amount of your potential saving.

Formula: Machine costs x 2%
