This is where we are at home
Design element with special function
When renovating or building, floor coverings are the basis for the desired living and room feeling in interior design. Depending on the material and colour, every room looks different. But not only the look determines nowadays the choice of the floor covering. Hygiene, resilience and the individual requirements for the use of space are playing an ever-increasing role in the choice of floor covering. However, installation and quality are 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 with a potential for the future
In modern architecture and craftsmanship, the material wood is experiencing a true renaissance both from an aesthetic point of view and for reasons such as environmental awareness, material properties and workability. The fact that the mechanical processing of wood is also subject to a process of change with the most different demands, becomes clear above all in the area of structural wood construction.
Sawmills & planing mills
Where wood becomes a working material
From today’s point of view, wood as a renewable raw material, CO2-storage and material with excellent insulation values is probably the most sustainable raw material currently available worldwide. Sawing and planing is the step in wood processing that refines the raw material wood into a working material after harvesting and prepares it ideally for the further production cycle.
Raw material for furniture, kitchens & interior fittings
In the production of panel material for furniture, kitchen and interior fittings, tool solutions are in demand which offer the optimum solution in terms of quality and productivity for the respective raw material and production conditions. Changing project parameters, such as the composition and type of base material, often require individual solutions that optimally support production.
Windows & front doors
Windows and doors are the face and the main visual elements of any building. At the same time, they form a barely visible barrier that leaves the world outside with all its attractions, yet provides enough openness to preserve the feeling of freedom to the outside world. The challenge in window and door construction today is to meet consumer expectations for elegance, functionality, living quality and environmental protection in harmony with the most economical and environmentally friendly production possible.
Facades & insulation materials
Protective coat and dress of each building
Functionality and aesthetics are the two cornerstones on which modern architecture is based. In order to meet the resulting diverse material requirements, it is often necessary to find individual solutions for the optimum processing of the materials used in the design of facades or the insulation of buildings.
Extended material competence
The processing of aluminium and non-ferrous metals repeatedly confronts users with situations that require special solutions. Thin-walled profiles have a strong tendency to vibrate, whereas solid materials show a completely different behaviour during machining.
Diverse in application, diverse in requirements
A closer look at the various types of plastics shows the almost unbelievable abundance of materials as well as the many processing and application possibilities. A distinction is made here mainly between the material groups of thermoplastics, Duroplastics and Elastomers. Each of these material groups has its own special properties and each material made of them 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 disproportionately high volume growth in products and lightweight materials.
Lightweight and composite materials are the winners due to their more favorable ratio of weight to strength.
