Success Stories

Pellet stove creates a feel-good atmosphere

Over the years, the pellet stove has more and more taken on the role of a well-being stove, but above all it has become a design and decoration object. The RAS Multibend Centers ECO supplies Palazzetti directly with finished enclosure parts for the stoves, which do not need to be post-processed, and this in consistent and visually flawless quality. The quality of the end product in terms of surface finish is outstanding. With the bending center, Palazzetti is highly efficient on one hand, as the automatic tool setup significantly reduces the cycle time of the machining operations. On the other hand, they are very flexible, as the automatic tooling system allows them to switch extremely quick from one program to another.

Shortage of skilled workers forces automation

Kimmel GmbH & Co. KG started automating manufacturing processes more than 20 years ago. By using a panel bender RAS Multibend-Center ECO with a working length of 2560 mm, the sheet metal parts specialist from Simbach in Bavaria, Germany, is able to react very flexible to order peaks. Volker Kimmel concludes: “With the RAS bending center, we have achieved all our objectives. Easy operation, flexible response to new challenges, low space requirements, and automation within bounds to counteract the increasingly critical labor shortage.”
