We love advanced components in tough materials
Flexibility! This is more than just a word for us at Tooltec. As we see it, flexibility is a concept that permeates every aspect of our business. Flexibility and Quality. What do we mean by this? Well, as manufacturers of advanced components, we must constantly be able to change and adapt to our customers’ needs. It may involve working up a tiny component for the aeronautical industry, where only a small batch is required. But it might equally well entail running a huge batch of components for a completely different sector. So flexibility is the key.
Tooltec turns, machines and sparks
So what do we actually do at Tooltec? Simply put, we work with the advanced manufacture of components through milling, turning, sparking and drilling complex materials. Our machine fleet is one of a kind. Not only on account of the large number of machines we own, but also because we possess specialist equipment including the most advanced set-up on the market for 5-axle multi-operation processing! And to do what we do, we need committed and extremely skilled employees. In other words, it is no accident that our machine operators all have more than ten years of experience. We work with our customers from initial idea to finished product. In many cases, we are even involved in the production preparation phase, as our engineers are skilled in CAD/CAM. As our customer, we want you to feel confident in placing your problems in our hands. We are quick to identify solutions, reorganise and process complex materials. Our quality assurance process is painstaking, which means that nothing leaves our facility unless it is of the highest quality.
Working together to monitor developments worldwide
Tooltec works tirelessly to remain at the cutting edge with regard to both production and process development. A key part of this work involves monitoring the world around us and sharing experience. We are members of several networks, including SWEREA, ASC and IUC Väst. We also participate in a variety of collaboration projects – CAM2 and Innovair, for example.
Quality and a long-term approach translate into satisfied customers
We at Tooltec work with precision, refuse to compromise on quality, and never leave anything to chance. This has resulted in our obtaining several certifications, including AS9100, which qualifies us to deliver components to the aeronautical industry and to work with other customers who make exceptionally high demands on safety.
Our customer base today comprises players from the gas turbine sector, the aeronautical and aerospace industry, the energy recovery sector and the offshore industry. The better we get to know our customers, the easier it is for us to adapt, come up with a solution quickly and provide good service. That is why we like to adopt a long-term approach to our business, taking on assignments that lead to working relationships which last for years – and to new investments in our machine fleet.
That is our ultimate aim – to be a partner for advanced components.
Components at Tooltec
From Trollhättan to outer space
Tooltec is one of the few manufacturers in Sweden with the certification and skills to deliver products to the aeronautical and aerospace industries. Johan Oskarsson, Quality and Environment Supervisor, relates: “We are members of a small, but highly qualified group that obtained this certification”.
Tooltec is one of the few players in Sweden that manufactures and delivers components to customers operating in the aeronautical and aerospace industries. Hardly any manufacturers have the huge capacity required, and few other operators in Sweden have been awarded the necessary AS9100 certification, which proves that the manufacturer has complete control of every aspect of the manufacturing process.
As a supplier, you are often part of a much larger context. For example, a component from Tooltec in Trollhättan may be installed in a jet engine that has to perform at an altitude of 10,000 metres, or even a small part of a satellite launched into space. Being part of something bigger demands attentiveness and dialogue with the customer; years and years of ongoing working relationships have resulted in us developing in-depth understanding of the way individual customers work. Being part of something bigger demands precision. The demands for product safety in the contexts of air and space travel are second to none. There is no margin for error and no room for mistakes. That is why Tooltec only ever delivers components of the highest quality.
