Improved accuracies - A cheer for mechanical engineering

Improvements in accuracies are something special for us as a traditional machine builder!

A few days ago we proudly announced the improvement of all accuracies for our LH series machines. The accuracy that we previously offered as premium accuracy will now become standard. For our customers who need a high-precision machine, this acts like a price reduction. Customers who previously purchased a machine with standard accuracy will now get a more accurate machine at no extra cost.

If you follow the press releases of other manufacturers, you read a lot about new optical sensors and software features. The big trade fairs in September / October are approaching and we all want to prove our innovative strength. Of course, we at WENZEL will also be launching new software versions in the fall. In WM | Quartis R 2019-2, we will see many innovations, including significantly improved functionality for integrating optical sensors into our automatic measurement processes. It is almost a matter of course that we will also present a new line sensor again. With the WM | LS 600, we are opening up new fields of application for our machines with a line length of 600 mm. Responsible for this is a great team effort and we are proud that we also bring competitive solutions to the market in the areas of optical metrology .

But the improvements in accuracies achieved are something special for us as a traditional machine builder. No technological leap is responsible for this, but these improvements are based on the knowledge of Wenzel in all phases of machine development and production. Starting with design, through purchasing, production and assembly, to acceptance and installation of the machines. Those who know and use Wenzel machines have long and often asked us why we are so careful with the data sheets: "your machines are much better than the data sheet" is a typical statement of our customers. Yes, the design of our machines has allowed us to meet the highest requirements of our customers for many years. But now we have further refined our internal production, assembly and acceptance processes so that we can reliably achieve this level on every machine. And we are now passing this progress on to our customers. We achieve the high accuracy through a mechanically very good and mature machine and not through lengthy, susceptible compensations.

For us, a good machine is the basis for a long-lasting machine. With a WENZEL machine, we are not just selling a machine, but the certainty that this machine can be used at the same level for many, many years. At a time when many suppliers tend to invest in short-lived sensors or easily replaceable software, we deliberately put a lot of effort and investment into the hardware: the treatment of the raw materials, the fine machining and the delicate and precise assembly. All LH machines are built and not only assembled at our plant in Wiesthal. Our vertical range of manufacture is very high, because we want to have full control over the machine construction. Those who are not yet familiar with our production are cordially invited to come and see for themselves.

Our philosophy naturally also includes first-class trained skilled workers. Not only must the design drawing fit, but the individual components of our high-precision machines must also be manufactured and assembled very carefully. Our long-serving employees pass this knowledge on to the next generation; this is how companies function best. We just said goodbye to an employee who has spent his entire working life at WENZEL : a whole 50 years! Such employees are not only valuable, they are part of the company and its history and have accumulated incredible knowledge that we have been able to use for these improvements.

In the end, the progress achieved only means a few numbers on the data sheets; for us they are more! They show that it is worth working every day to become just that little bit better. When experience meets curiosity and a thirst for innovation, continuous improvements are made for the benefit of all.

With this in mind, we at WENZEL work every day and full of joy to build even better machines.
