Smooth series production needs a strong partner. Fensterwerk Schröder GmbH took its lessons from a crash.
Shock at Schröder in Hesel, North Germany: A self-inflicted breakdown of the automatic planer paralyzed wooden window production. “At that time Weinig Service helped during the night. That’s not something you don’t forget” says Manfred Fecht, the Timber Production Manager, remembering the occasion. So when it came to acquiring a modern profiling center, Weinig was at the top of the list. “Meeting deadlines is of primary importance for us. In addition, we needed a fast line which could be used to produce the roughly 40 systems we have with consistently high quality and with minimal manpower”, says Hendrik Schröder, explaining their requirements. The Conturex 124 in the 2nd generation was the perfect setup for them. They also invested in a Weinig optimizing cross-cut saw, which is linked up to the Conturex. The positive experience has proved the window specialists right: “I am impressed with the reliability of the line” says the Managing Director today. This is key, because Schröder GmbH makes full use of the Conturex capacity.
