Compact robot system for maximum flexibility

HAIGER/ALTENSTADT – The welding department is one of the central production areas at Henke GmbH. For more than 30 years, the specialists for industrial sheet metal processing and transformer accessories from Altenstadt in Hesse have relied on the welding technologies of Carl Cloos Schweisstechnik GmbH. In 2018 Henke commissioned a compact robot system of the welding specialists from Haiger. Among other things, the system is equipped with the new MoTion Weld processes by CLOOS and is characterised by maximum production flexibility.

Henke has its origins in the 1970s when the Frankfurt businessman Heinz W. Henke acquired the bankrupt company Münch-Motorradfabrik GmbH. With continuous investment in machinery and the steady expansion of the product range, Henke quickly developed into a professional metalworking company. Jens Wolf is now the third generation of the family to run the company.

Approximately 150 employees manufacture products for the electrical industry, medical technology, mechanical engineering, the food and pharmaceutical industry, power engineering and many other industries on a production area of more than 9,000 square metres. A wide variety of materials and plate thicknesses are used here. Whether punching, bending, welding or powder coating – Henke Metall is very broadly positioned as a contract manufacturing company.

Increasing customer demands
"Thanks to our flexible production, we can also respond optimally to individual customer wishes," emphasises Henke Managing Director Jens Wolf. "As a partner at eye level, we support our customers from development, design and production to commissioning". In order to meet the demanding customer requirements with regard to quality, delivery time and flexibility, Henke is continually modernising the various production areas and investing in automated production processes. After the more than 25 year old robot was no longer able to meet the increasing requirements in the welding area, the company has used a new QIROX robot system by CLOOS since October 2018.
