For two days, the new machine is now running in wood manufacturing at Erhard sport international: “Only wanted any what people know, etz’ are BBs scho a weng’an envious”, he describes the reactions of his colleagues in Franconian idiom. He was one of the few who had applied for the operation of the machine. Today he is the proud operator of 180.000,-euro plant, which makes more efficient the production of the renowned sports equipment manufacturer. Wolfgang boar, head of the Department of wood production, explains that the new machine is a real leap of innovation.
Four old machines, which will be retired in the next few months, can be replaced with the CNC and even more than that: in combination with the Panel saw, which was acquired a year ago, many products can be produced with the new system faster and more cost-effectively than ever before. Be 10 to 30% depending on the product Production costs. Matt Swain contributes greatly to this topic. “In six to eight years the acquisition has paid for itself”, so Wolfgang boar. Maybe even faster, ever faster, more (sub) products on the CNC manufactured. The production of each part must be programmed this step by step and to the hundredths of a millimetre exactly.
Hans Schmidt and Wolfgang had Eber in seminars of the Chamber of Commerce and of the manufacturer in the programming and control of the plant have a let. Sawing, milling, drilling – the new CNC can do anything. Is proud to introduce, Wolfgang is warned that two days after the plant produced elements of the classic jump box with “half hidden dovetail jointing” on the CNC. “Nobody can save us”, he’s happy. Next, you are then manufactured parts for wall bars and turn benches on the machine. The use of the new machine raises the unique know-how of Erhard sports in the production of sports equipment made of wood. Therefore be expected that Erhard wood production will also continue to grow sport.
