This is where we are at home
Design elements with special functions
When renovating or building, floor coverings are the basis for the desired living and room feel in interior design. Depending on the material and colour, every room looks different. But not only the look determines the choice of the floor covering. Hygiene, resilience and the individual requirements in the use of the space are playing an ever-increasing role in the choice of floor covering. Installation and quality are now also aspects that are increasingly becoming more important when it comes to choosing the right floor for the end consumer.
Furniture & interior doors
Expression of lifestyle and aesthetics
Furniture and interior doors make rooms what they are supposed to be. The heart of the home, an oasis of well-being, workplace or place of retreat – the definitions are almost endless. The stylistic and structural characteristics of pieces of furniture or interior doors seem just as limitless. Form, colour, function, everything is possible, whether as a one-off or as a series product.
Structural wood construction
Wood – a construction material essential for our future
In modern architecture and craftsmanship, wood is experiencing a true renaissance from an aesthetic point of view, for environmental awareness, material properties and workability. The mechanical processing of wood is subject to a multitude of different demands, and this becomes particularly clear in the area of structural wood construction.
Sawmills & planing mills
Where wood becomes a working material
In today’s market, wood is now viewed as a premium renewable material with strong CO2 storage benefits, excellent insulation values and is probably the most sustainable raw material currently available worldwide. After harvesting, sawing and planing is the first step in processing that refines the wood into a working material in preparation for production.
Raw material for furniture, kitchens & interior fittings
In the production of panel material for furniture, kitchen and interior fittings, the demand is for tool systems which offer the optimum solutions for raw material and production quality and productivity. Changing project parameters, such as the composition and type of base material, often require individual solutions which optimally support production efficiency.
Windows & front doors
Windows and doors are the face of every building. They provide comfort and security from the world outside, yet provide light and openness, instilling a sense of freedom. The challenge in window and door construction today is to meet consumer expectations of elegance, functionality, living quality and environmental protection but balanced with the most economical and environmentally friendly production processes.
Facades & insulation materials
The protective coat and dressing of each building
Functionality and aesthetics are the two cornerstones on which modern architecture is based. In order to meet the resulting material requirements, it is often necessary to find individual solutions for the optimum processing of each material used in the design of facades and the insulation of buildings.
Extended material competence
The processing of aluminium and non-ferrous metals repeatedly present manufacturers with requirements that need special solutions. Thin-walled profiles are likely to vibrate, whereas solid materials present completely different behavior during machining.
Diverse in application, diverse in requirements
A closer look at various types of plastics shows an almost unbelievable abundance of material, processing and application possibilities. However, a key distinction is made between the material groups of thermoplastics, duroplastics and elastomers. Each of these material groups has its own special properties and each material has different features which have to be taken into account during machining.
Lightweight & composite materials
Efficient machining of new materials
The rapidly growing need for mobility worldwide has a magnetic effect on new material qualities and attracts new applications. This new dynamism is reflected in high volume growth in products and lightweight materials.
Lightweight and composite materials are the winners due to their favorable ratio of weight to strength.
