Finally - room for new machines! After an astonishingly fast process in which more than 750 tons of scrap have been neatly separated according to recyclable materials, the way is finally clear for the step-by-step installation of a new machine park. One thing is already certain: it will be more modern, more digital and more powerful than ever.
The delivery of a new production machine is always a special moment, because our CNC lathes and milling machines are the heart of our company: In the meantime, a new 5-axis machining center, a Hedelius T7-3200 for machining heavy workpieces, is about to be put into operation and this week a vertical machining center with 1,850 mm x-axis and max. 3,000 kg loading weight - a DMC 1850 V from DMG Mori - will be delivered. As if that were not enough, depending on the availability of components, another highlight is scheduled for delivery at the end of November/beginning of December: another TILTENTA 7-3200 2R, this time with space for 240 tools and equipped with a 50-place movable tool magazine. This is how it can continue, because with each new machine we return to our full performance and competitiveness.
Our core competence: special compounds according to our own formulations
In an interview with the trade magazine K Profi, we ourselves realized once again how quickly production was able to restart in our undamaged operating sections, as the older press section with an annual capacity of 1,800 t of semi-finished products was already back in production in mid-August. The crucial thing was that we were very soon able to process specialty compounds again according to our own recipes, compounds and processing parameters. After all, our recipes are sacred and we would never give them away. Conclusion: Things are moving forward at Wefapress® - we'll keep you posted!
The interview and the subsequent 6-page article have shown us once again how strong we are as a company with great employees and what an important role cooperative partners and supporters play. Read also the complete article, published in the K-PROFI issue 10 / 2021, pages 22-27.
