Henke: in the fast lane
In order to develop new areas of business, Henke GmbH was looking for a system that was optimally suited for kit production, but that also permitted low unit costs for large series thanks to a high production speed. With the Salvagnini S4 + P4 FMS, the company installed a system in 2021 that more than met their requirements.
In the fast lane
Henke GmbH is a specialist in industrial sheet metal processing from Altenstadt, Germany, equipped with the most modern fiber laser cutting systems, punching machines, press brakes, and panel benders. With approximately 125 employees, it processes more than 5000t of sheet metal per year.
- The context
Henke GmbH started looking for alternative production options after the pandemic. A growing number of customers were looking for more flexibility in their provisioning, to be prepared for uncertainties in their supply chains. To meet this need and keep up with in-house production, especially in terms of price, Henke was looking for a solution that can cut, punch and bend sheet metal in a very flexible and fast manner, drastically reducing setup and idle times.
