Meet Tomi Lepola, Our New Method Developer!

Tomi Lepola says he is a passionate machine shop engineer, who sincerely enjoys his work.

17.04.2019

We have appointed Tomi Lepola as our first Method Developer from the beginning of this year. The job includes the purchase of machining tools as well as continuous improvement of manufactured products.

Lepola has a long 17 years of experience in machining. In addition, he has seven years’ experience selling machining tools. For the last few years he has worked as a Method Developer in a company manufacturing aluminum profiles.

 

The Method Developer position is new at ST-Koneistus. What does a Method Developer do exactly?

 

“I try to help our machinists and Designing Engineer to find the most effective way to manufacture our customers’ products in terms of the tools they use. Machining tools are cutter blades and drill bits that are used in the production of hydraulic manifolds and turning components. I am responsible for the purchase of these tools and management of their inventory.”

 

 

 

“My job is, ultimately, to ensure that our production doesn’t stop due to the lack of machining tools. At the same time, I try to make sure that the tools purchased serve their purpose as efficiently as possible.”

 

 

 

High-Quality Production Requires an Incredible Amount of Machining Tools

 

ST-Koneistus has more than a thousand different machining tools, which it uses in the manufacture of hydraulic manifolds and turning components. The company’s dozens of machine centers stores hundreds of tools in their warehouses as we speak. The rest of them surrounds Lepola at his workstation, where all non-production machining tools are systematically stored.

 

How often do you need to purchase new tools? Isn’t there one among the thousands already suitable for whatever job?

 

“In fact, new tool orders have to be made daily, for one reason or another. Often, a new product requires a new kind of tool. In addition, blades wear out and break when being used. We have about ten suppliers specializing in machining tools, that we use to order these blades.”

 

To give a proper perspective to the company’s machining tool needs, ST- Koneistus purchases machining tools with the value of over half a million EUR per year.

 

“My job is, ultimately, to ensure that our production doesn’t stop due to the lack of machining tools. At the same time, I try to make sure that the tools purchased serve their purpose as efficiently as possible.”

 

ST-Koneistus is a Finnish supplier of hydraulic blocks and components specializing in demanding custom production. We manufacture complex components using the most cutting-edge machinery in the business.
