The number of clamps produced annually increases rapidly. This growth advances the mechanisation of manufacturing earlier than expected, ensuring the in-house design of new machines again and again. Our production space grows thanks to the integration of adjacent buildings and a second plant nearby in the centre of Velbert. Strengthening the number of core staff with a many home workstations becomes inevitable and follows the labour market situation of the day. The clamp family continues to grow, adding larger nominal diameters, the new band widths 5 mm and 20 mm and stainless steel versions. The first applications outside of hose technology are a challenge for our engineers and deliver valuable insights into accessing further potential for universal worm-drive technology.
