It is no big surprise that the trend toward standardization is increasingly taking hold in the world of mechanical engineering and workshop equipment. Ultimately, the unstoppable march of globalization usually means that project throughput times have to get ever shorter, while general efficiency has to keep on improving. By offering a comprehensive range of semi-finished goods, Meusburger is looking to help its customers beat tough international competition. Included in the range is everything from off-the-shelf stress-relieved high-grade steel plates and N-bars to special plates. The company aims to supply customers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria with plates and bars that have been pre-machined to precise specifications within 24 hours. What’s more, the Austrian company claims it can supply all products for mechanical engineering and workshop equipment in a range of material grades and designs.
Not only that, it also offers a variety of machining steps such as flame cutting, sawing, deep hole drilling, milling, grinding and turning. The Meusburger Webshop, which takes pride of place on the stand at EMO Hannover 2017, enables rapid and simple cost calculations and design work. Furthermore, if companies can have cutting and milling work carried out before they even take delivery of parts, they can conserve resources or ensure these are deployed more effectively in their core areas. Visitors to EMO Hannover 2017 can study samples of all the various production techniques for themselves. Information terminals at the stand also offer visitors an opportunity to try out the digital assistants and the Webshop first-hand. Customers who prefer conventional channels won’t feel left out though, as Meusburger is complementing its online offerings with a print catalog. The latest edition carries the title "Plates and Bars 2016/2017" and presents the entire standard program along with additional information such as CAD standards and comparison and tolerance tables.
