2015 | Investment into capacity expansion for the mechanical processes
In the year 2015, successful investments in the area of mechanical processing were made. A total of € 1.5 million was invested into a center for deep drilling and milling, including a round table for the machining of the hotplates developed by WICKERT. With the new machine, our leading role in the area of hot plate technology has been strengthened.
Furthermore, a travel stand milling machine with a clamping surface of 23 feet x 6.6 feet was successfully put into operation. The fully automated, NC-controlled system weighs almost 50 tons and continues to ensure precise work on large pieces, for the press and equipment construction. With this investment WICKERT once more highlights the philosophy of working with a high quality of equipment to ensure the production of high quality presses. They ensure the capacity and flexibility for the future.
