Fabricators from as far afield as Korea, Namibia, Chile and Japan descended on Mühlacker, Germany to experience elumatec’s TechDays.
The three-day event sought to showcase the firm’s market-leading product range, and give attendees a crucial insight into the direction fabrication technology is moving in.
Visitors were treated to an array of live demonstrations, designed to show how elumatec’s cutting-edge aluminium and uPVC machining solutions can help fabricators boost productivity, increase quality and grow their businesses.
Foremost among these were two new additions to the company’s celebrated SBZ line of CNCs. The SBZ 628 advances on the excellent template created by previous entries in the SBZ series, introducing a new horizontal saw set, significantly improving the 4-axis machine’s speed and efficiency.
Meanwhile, the SBZ 141, another new 4-axis CNC, can boast more stable, ergonomic machine beds, and autonomous clamp positioning to accelerate pass-through times.
The company also showcased a number of products from its newly expanded uPVC range. These included the Stürtz FlexCentre 160, a highly-advanced cutting and machining centre for uPVC window and door production, the Stürtz TXR 3/2 Corner Transom Cleaner, and the Sturtz VSM Turbo Welder, a high-speed vertical 4-point welder offering exceptional accuracy and high-temperature welding functionality.
A number of elumatec’s market-leading software products were also demonstrated live at the event, including eluCad – a cutting-edge but user-friendly programme designed to allow operators to issue commands to machines using a simple interface rather than complex ISO code.
The company’s eluCloud software makes information such as production status and process times accessible 24/7 via an intuitive mobile phone app.
Managing Director Phil Heavey commented: “The TechDays are really the highlight of our calendar here at elumatec. It was fantastic to be able to bring over a thousand existing and potential customers from all around the world to our Mühlacker HQ – and I’m delighted to say that feedback from attendees has been extremely positive.”
