HAIGER/NEUENHAUS – Automation, digitisation and networking are becoming increasingly important in all production areas at Glüpker Blechtechnologie. The sheet-metal specialists are aiming to further increase quality and productivity at their manufacturing site and ensure their competitiveness in the long term. For both manual and automated welding, the company has relied on the technologies by CLOOS for more than 20 years.
Since its founding in 1981, Glüpker Blechtechnologie GmbH has continuously expanded its expertise in the area of sheet-metal processing — especially in the fields of lasers, edges and welding. Each year, around 500 employees at the company's site in Neuenhaus process some 50,000 tonnes of material for around 500,000 production orders. The spectrum of processed components is enormous, since Glüpker Blechtechnologie performs work for a large number of companies across various industry sectors In the meantime, the company has acquired extensive component know-how and also manufactures all of its own apparatus. Its customers particularly appreciate the company's short processing times and high quality standards. "We are in direct competition with job manufacturing companies in Eastern Europe and Asia," explains Jürgen Gerst, management board member at Glüpker Blechtechnologie. "To secure our location in the long term, we need a high level of automation." For this reason, Glüpker Blechtechnologie constantly invests in its modern machine park.
Reliable welding systems for working processes For the company's production planning, clean and repeatable processes are always at the forefront. All production information and processes are interconnected. "We live Industry 4.0," emphasises Gerst. "In order for our complex production sequences to work flawlessly, the systems must not stand idle." Because he attaches great importance to high levels of system availability and reliability, Gerst has been using CLOOS as a partner for manual and automated welding for many years. On-the-spot support is provided by long-standing CLOOS sales and service partner Engelking Schweißtechnik, based in Burgwedel, Lower Saxony.
