HEINZ SCHWEVERS |

“We chose the Voortman machinery for their high quality which was excellent compared to the competition. This is also reflected in the design and performance of the machines.”

In October 2012 the company Schwevers & Raab Stahl-Hochbau GmbH moved into a new production facility in the German Kalkar. To design the machinery layout for this new facility, we decided to use Voortman's expertise. After a building period of seven months we were ready to begin production.

Equipment for new facility

For the new production facility, a new V630 drilling system, VB1050 sawing system as well as a V320 plate processing system and VSB1500 shot blaster are installed in the 4.000 m2 workshop to create a highly automated production line. The earlier investments: a Voortman V550 punching and shearing system and V3100 stock system, moved along.

"We chose the Voortman machinery for their high quality which was excellent compared to the competition. Voortman is the technologically advanced company and this is also reflected in the design and performance of the machines. We can be confident fulfulling the needs of our customers."

Furthermore, Schwevers & Raab expect an increase in production: "We expect an increase in our production because the investment in our automation level increased considerably. This gives us a huge advantage compared to the traditional construction method. We see this being the direction of the future."
