We are active in innovation at internatinal level as well. We are part of research project “Level-Up”, which is subsidised by the European Union. TOSHULIN is a member of a consortium of 32 partners from all over Europe. The project is focused on extending the useful life of expensive production equipment. AT TOSHULIN, innovative approaches are demonstrated WITH the example of the modernisation of theSKIQ vertical turning lathe. These days, the modernized machine was put into operation and successfully passed the testing phase. Among other significant improvements, the machine is equipped with a new generation CNC control system. It is one of the first Czech-made machines that is controlled by the Sinumerik One system.
