Wittmann Battenfeld Increases Capacity
Following commissioning of the new assembly hall for large machines in April last year, Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH, Kottingbrunn, Austria, is now increasing its capacity for the production of large machines by a further 650 m2 . The project concerns an extension of the existing assembly hall, where a machining center for clamping plates for large machines will be installed. With this new machining center, it will be possible to manufacture the clamping plates for all large MacroPower machines with up to 1,600 t clamping force in-house, too. This will be a vital contribution to improving the production flow in line with assembly, and to shortening lead times.
Building started in July of this year. Completion of the hall is planned for the end of the year. Commissioning of the new machining center is expected by the end of the 1st quarter of 2015.
