Fully automatic lathes and copy lathes for turned wood parts
Turned parts made of wood play a greater role in daily life than it might first appear. Neither the age of plastics nor other technical developments have been able to diminish the importance of wood as a material. This is not only the case in wooden construction and furniture manufacturing, but also in wooden toys, in jewellery and fashion, in technical utensils and for the elegant or rustic dining table, and so on. This large demand for turned wood parts could never be met by hand-turners. Therefore, since the beginning of the last century, there have been machine-technical developments that help the woodworker to meet this mass demand.
However, to this day there is no machine that could replace the versatility of hand turning. Therefore, the suitable machine or automatic lathe must be found or developed for the specific task at hand.
The basis for determining a suitable machine is always the shape and dimensions of the turned part to be produced. Of course, we try to cover as wide a range of possibilities as possible. There is no such thing as a machine that can do everything. It would certainly not make sense to try to develop such a machine.
The selection of the most suitable machine for the respective application should be made on the basis of the turning samples and in an on-site consultation. As DRECHSELZENTRUM ERZGEBIRGE, we have the expertise for this and will be happy to advise you and since taking over the know-how, expertise, machines and some employees of the company WEMA Werkzeug- und Maschinenbau GmbH in July 2018, we have been manufacturing these machines ourselves in our own machine manufacturing company steinert® Maschinenbau: www.steinert-maschinenbau.de
In October 2020, we took over the company hapfo® Maschinenbau from Mindelheim. In addition to the proven machine programme from hapfo® and the production know-how from 45 years of hapfo® history, we are also pleased to welcome the former owner and managing director Bernhard Katzenschwanz to our team.
