HOLZ-HER product portfolio as central production pillar
Binni is one of the leading companies in the Republic of Kosovo in the area of interior furnishings such as doors and windows. Over 200 employees work in a production area of 18,000 m2 with a capacity of more than 10,000 doors per year as well as over 5,000 kitchens per year. Every year more than 50 new product are introduced on the market. The company exports to various European countries such as Switzerland, Germany, Belgium or the Netherlands.
Binni was founded in 1989 and represents the continuation of a family tradition. The business model combines traditional Albanian wood and furniture craftsmanship with innovative processes and technologies meeting international standards.
This international standard is guaranteed by use of highly varying HOLZ-HER machines, for a majority of the company’s production. In addition to two horizontal panel saws, the company uses a vertical EVOLUTION 7405 CNC and a PRO-MASTER 7125 CNC machining center. A SPRINT 1327 edgebander is also in use. The HOLZ-HER machines are a significant production factor, which have become indispensable for this major company’s everyday business.

Even small workshops have room for CNC
What can small shops with minimum space do to prevent being overtaken in terms of production technology? At the Mähr Carpentry Shop the answer points in the vertical direction and makes it clear: Even the smallest workshops offer space for CNC
It is well know that contemporary craftsmanship is particularly pronounced in the Vorarlberg Region of Austria. With the slogan “The nature of craftsmanship”, the Mähr Carpentry Shop fits well into this picture. The congenial brothers Wolfgang and Christoph Mähr told us: “We are as innovative as possible in keeping up with the manifold challenges of the time.”
“Actually we wanted to purchase a new drill”, commented the two brothers in unison with regard to their decision-making process. Step for step we began to focus on CNC technology. Christoph Mähr glances into the workshop: “But a horizontal CNC machine was unthinkable, because, we simply do not have the space.“ The current developments in the field of vertical CNC machining centers provided the perfect solution to their investment considerations: The compact dimensions and the versatile, CNC-controlled machining capabilities offered by the new vertical machines are perfect for shops with limited space.
The decision to buy the Evolution 7405 4mat from HOLZ-HER was justified in Feldkirch by a number of outstanding technical features. These include complete machining on all four edges of the work, the unique new vacuum clamping concept and the laser measurement feature for the work with automatic compensation of the edge thickness of work already edged. Contact to Bernhard Plattner, HOLZ-HER’s Regional Sales Manager, did the rest, stated Wolfgang Mähr: “We were well advised in every phase right up to inhouse training.“
Edgebanding, CNC & complete machine united in production
The Henss Interior Finishing Company in Feldkirch, better known as AUF&ZU (OPEN&CLOSE), is a satisfied HOLZ-HER customer, and, in the meantime, uses a majority of the production machines from the traditional manufacturer in Nürtingen.
The brand AUF&ZU is the result of decades of experience in interior finishing work. Starting with sliding doors, the idea was transferred to cabinet design. The cabinets have become rooms, where every inch of the room is used for a practical purpose. The AUF&ZU systems are planned to meet specific needs and visually matched to the tastes of the customer - without being subject to any limitations in design. Over 60 years of experience in the branch, has resulted in know-how appreciated by many regular customers.
All of the company’s products are produce in their own shop. Since 2013 AUF&ZU has used HOLZ-HER machines for its production. Products already installed include a PRO-MASTER 7225 5-axis machining center as well as an EVOLUTION 7405 vertical CNC machining center for complete machining of all types of work. In addition to CNC machining, the company also used edgebanders from HOLZ-HER. Currently the predecessor model of the ACCURA is installed: an ARCUS 1334.
HOLZ-HER machines represent everything important for the AUF&ZU Company: Precision work, state-of-the-art engineering and use of European products, to produce high quality, enduring products for the customers.
India for advanced students
For two entire years Klaus Nusser supervised construction of a carpenter shop in India. He produces furniture for billionaires and lives among the poorest of the poor, often distraught, he always manages to get a hold on himself.
[...] Nusser’s job is to plan a new workshop for Utturkar’s Wood Culture. In India the company sells connectors, fittings and other furniture accessories from Germany and Italy – among others from Kesseböhmer, Grass and Hailo. To equip the showrooms, proprietor Tarek Utturkar, a master carpenter trained in Germany, also runs a carpenter shop. But the workshop, warehouse and office are spread over the sweep of a city with 5.9 million residents. Driving times of over one hour are not uncommon. Moreover the demand from the private segment is continuously increasing. “Up to now most high quality furniture has been imported”, reports Nusser. “It’s hard to image, how architects reacted, when they learned that the products were produced in India. We were completely equipped.” The furniture and interior decoration department was therefore intended as a central pillar for the Utturkar Enterprise. When things get complicated, Nusser frequently operates the saw himself, building, for example, a desk for one of the world’s richest men and furnishing his house with kitchen and bathes.
[...] On April 20, 2015 The BM editorial staff received an email: “My company is finished.” The before/after comparison is impressive: While the old workshop was chaotic and dark, the new building make a friendly, structured appearance. It is filled with machines from HOLZ-HER: The vertical CNC Evolution 7405, the 6 m long 1327 Sprint edgebander and the smaller 1310 model. The Utturkar brothers purchased a relatively new Martin circular saw with digital display and took the Häusserman veneer press from the old workshop. The compressed air is supplied by a Kaeser screw-type compressor, while a stationary as well as a mobile exhaust system from Al-Ko provide for evacuation. The electrical tools from Makita are beginning to show signs of wear and an old Lamello milling machine is also present.
“Get me a CNC technician”, demanded Klaus at last, because up to new he is the only one capable of operating the CNC machine. So he gets a man, who doesn’t even know what a miter joint is. “This is India. It works”, is the answer to the frustration of the German in the face of such incidences.
And now that everything is finished and running as planned, Klaus is beginning to think about staying in India for another year. But at the bottom line, his homesickness gets the better of him. His last email from Pune arrives on May 29, 2015: “I’m almost in the plane. Finally!“ [...]

The R-EVOLUTION in the High Black Forest region
Even in the High Black Forest region HOLZ-HER is represented with its high quality machines. The Villinger Carpentry Shop, located in the southern part of the Black Forest, was founded in 1981. This traditional carpentry shop features state-of-the-art equipment for production to match the specific and individualistic desires and ideas of its customers. It addition to furniture, kitchens and doors, the scope of work also includes built-in cabinets and interior finishing work.
The Junior Partner Benjamin Villinger is convinced of the value of the new HOLZ-HER CNC machining center: “Now we are using a HOLZ-HER EVOLUTION 7405 for our production here in the High Black Forest - this is a true R-EVOLUTION.” The carpentry shop’s junior partner puts his money on state-of-the-art engineering. The possibility of complete machining is a particular advantage. Use of the 7405 from HOLZ-HER has now made it possible to format the work on all 4 sides. This reduces the cutting work and increases precision.
Optimum machining on all four edges of the work, leaves the carpentry shop with tear-free edges for further processing on the edgebander. This eliminates the need for special machines to drill holes for fittings, anchors and rows of holes, which significantly reduces the work load.
Universal use of the vertical CNC machining center and the virtually unlimited possibilities for machining the work allow the Villinger Carpentry Shop to offer their customers top quality in terms of shape, function and durability.
State-of-the-art machine engineering for Swiss precision
The Swiss company Bürgisser AG is an innovative enterprise with a long tradition. They specialize in custom planned, high quality kitchen furnishings. In addition, customers also receive comprehensive service and quality products from the carpentry and cabinet making shop.
Christof Bürgisser: "Our customers expect above-average quality from us, meaning that all components have to come from the CNC machines with reliable accuracy and high quality." This is the reason Bürgisser AG chose the performance package with HSK collet chucks and 6-fold tool changer. This ensures that their EVOLUTION is an extremely versatile, true CNC machining center - also for milling channels, facing, carving, etc.
Manfred Bürgisser: "As first time CNC users, we were enthusiastic about the versatility and simple macro programming of the CAMPUS/NCHops software supplied with the machine."
Universal processing with the HOLZ-HER EVOLUTION
The Endl Cabinetmaking Shop in Winzer is enthusiastic: Their HOLZ-HER EVOLUTION 7405 is the perfect universal machine for processing furniture bodies:
Drilling, cutting and formating made easy!
The proprietor of the company, Roland Endl, knows many reasons why this machine has proven to be an important stanchion for the daily work process since it was purchased in 2014. Particularly the machine’s minimum space requirement makes it the best alternative for medium sized shops. He was also convinced by the excellent quality of this easy-to-use machine. An important point, which supports daily business, is also the clamping concept, which does not damage the work, while allowing processing on all sides without any clamps, thus permitting complete circumferential formating, for example complete circles and discs.
In the opinion of the company proprietor the excellent support for questions regarding the application and software is also a positive factor.
Mr. Endl’s final conclusion regarding his experience with HOLZ-HER is extremely positive: “The machine is ideal for processing panels - as well as for use with solid wood and our every day business is no longer imaginable without it!”
