Helmerding wishes to position itself as a brand
Helmerding Maschinen GmbH, headquartered in Bad Oeynhausen, is an owner-managed, medium-sized company with a history that spans 50 years. The company specialises primarily in the development, manufacture and sale of precision punching and forming presses.
Over past decades the company has gained itself a good reputation within the industry with its machines and plants. The main factors in its success include continuous innovation, achieving ambitious objectives and maintaining a strong customer focus in particular. The high standards we set, by concentrating all of our resources on what is important for the customer, have consistently guided the company along the route to creating a brand image. This is apparent foremost in our team of 120 well-trained and technically qualified employees who concentrate their efforts on growing the company in a customer-focussed manner. Our employees are experts in the manufacture and assembly of precision punching and forming presses and press accessories.
Helmerding guarantees precision and quality through certified business processes and by producing a high percentage of components in-house. The good infrastructure in terms of buildings, processing machines and systems for supporting our work processes is a further key quality element. The social competence required for maintaining and growing the company and for the ongoing training and continuing professional development of our employees is a top priority for shareholders.
The fundamental principle behind the development of Helmerding plants and machines is a modular focus that incorporates defined interfaces. This applies equally to the presses, belt transmission systems, transfer systems and to the peripheral system components such as tool changers and robotics. This allows the plant and machinery manufacturer to ensure that customer-specific requirements, starting with their tooling concepts, can be more rapidly integrated – and configured – into the execution systems for presses and accessories using in-house, standardised, incrementally expandable modules. The customer benefits are particularly apparent in the reduced development costs, our proven-quality press systems that consolidate many years of experience, our proven product creation process and shorter lead times.
The individual Helmerding concept is unified in the “multifunction press”. This plant system comprises the basic press module on the one hand, together with the basic transfer and feed systems on the other. These modules can be optimally combined in just the shortest of setup times, depending upon the selected tooling concept (follow-on composite tool, transfer tool). Customer benefits are further enhanced by the machine’s high flexibility in production, the universal adaptability of the plant, cost savings and shorter setup times. A 24/7/365 hotline is available to customers which provides on-call service by mechanics, electrics and electronics technicians. This service guarantees response times of between 1 hour and 24 hours, depending upon the customer’s location. The central spare parts store, remote diagnosis capability, technical support and the instruction and training of the customer’s operatives round off the individual service package.
