Our innovative spirit and capabilities have earned us the reputation of a pioneer throughout all generations of wire. Far beyond specialist circles, we are regarded as so-called "first movers." Based on more than 40 years of experience in the production of EDM wires, we can proudly say that our customers benefit from the resulting optimized and stable production processes. Continuous research and development processes for new EDM wires provide this support, as do projects with renowned research institutes. This is where our comprehensive know-how in the field of EDM fundamentals is particularly valued. This also applies to bedraWELDING. Over the years, we have built up a good reputation here and are a widely recognized development partner for the automotive and supplier industries. And that's not all: In the wide range of bedraELAS, for example, we are a valued partner for the development of innovative solutions for anchor wires.
Our success is based on systematic and understandable processes. We have defined the principles of research & development in eight key points. In addition to complying with legal and regulatory requirements, we adhere to the following internal rules:
The heart of our research and development is the Berkenhoff Competence Center. Many patents and product innovations have their origin here. Close interaction with our marketing and sales departments ensures that the latest market analyses are incorporated into our research and development work, as are suggestions from our customers. We also collaborate exclusively with many OEMs. In all this work, our focus is on key factors like performance and reliability.
To ensure the highest quality standards, we have a complete network of different measuring techniques in our production and development areas:
We like to proactively embrace modern production conditions with our customers. To this end, we adapt our portfolio of measurement techniques to the exact requirements of our customers’ production sites. For example, we measure the temperature of wires during production. Our goal is to optimize our customers' processes in real time on the spot. Data recordings for process control and improvement, such as vibration measurements of machines, provide us with the necessary information to optimize processes for the long term.
