The new WinLine 16 NC multi-centre is ready to do its job, as is fitting of a modern manufacturer of windows and doors whose history is based on an artisan tradition but who is ready for the future. An important decision, considering the investment of approximately half a million Euro: "I admit that this new purchase gave me some sleepless nights," remarked Michael, "but I'm increasingly confident that it was the right thing to do." For all intents and purposes, the new machinery now represents a milestone in the company's history. The impressive technical characteristics of this innovative multi-centre gave the manager the serenity he needed: in fact, this machinery makes it possible to load up to 30 pieces at the same time and produce more than 200 components in each shift according to composition, form, and material, as well as easily create mortise and tenon joints. All with the greatest accuracy.
"WinLine 16 is perfect for medium-sized companies that wish to replace their inflexible production lines in order to increase productivity," stated Michael, who is counting on another important specialization as well. In fact, the multi-centre is also perfect for the creation of arcs, borders, and special features. As compared to the past, the manufacture of rounded windows and arched doorways has now become routine, with the search for functionality, which is still fundamental, now accompanied by a focus on aesthetic aspects as well: "Construction clients have very specific demands as compared to before, both in terms of design and execution," confirmed Michael. "Custom windows and doors are increasingly requested: thanks to the rapid stages of production, clients benefit from higher quality with an excellent relationship between price and technical characteristics, and architects and designers can count on a reliable delivery time during execution their project."
The decision to acquire a high-tech multi-centre like the WinLine 16 doesn't only satisfy the heightened quality standards of Fensterbau Leopold, but also helps to solve the "logistical" issues associated with the fact that a small team of people is handling all incoming requests and, ultimately, easily exhausting their capacity. Michael would be happy to augment the company's work force through new hires, "but it's not easy to find qualified employees, especially in the artisan sector and in rural areas."
It's easy to understand, therefore, why the multi-centre, the first of its kind to be installed and put into operation in Europe, deserves such a warm welcome from the roughly one hundred partners, clients, and friends who, this past April 1, toasted the installation of the WinLine 16 which, for Fensterbau Leopold, represents another step towards Industry 4.0 and the automation of extremely personalized artisan processes. "We are now one of the most modern manufacturers of windows and doors in all of Germany, if not all of Europe," stated Michael with satisfaction, happily aware that "it is currently difficult to produce a window more precisely or quickly." Such cutting-edge technology certainly deserves a major celebration.
