Abacus Maschinenbau and WF Maschinenbau Agree on Long-term Cooperation and Expand Their Market Position
Osnabrück, Sendenhorst 02 May 2017. The two leading enterprises in engineering Abacus Maschinenbau and WF Maschinenbau seal their cooperation with regard to global sales and the development of spinning machines for several applications. With this long-term strategical cooperation, both cooperation ¬partners pursue the common goal to continuously expand their market position.
For 25 years, the Osnabrück-based company Abacus have been specialized in the design and construction of machine tools and special-purpose machines. In recent years they have developed and successfully introduced onto the market a novel and innovative series of vertical spinning machines under the name PREMO. The special thing about these spinning machines is the control system particularly developed by Abacus on the basis of Beckhoff components which currently are at the technological forefront. At the first time, engineers succeeded in putting into practice a completely automatic spinning step¬ generation – and in doing so – in taking an enormous step towards the Industry 4.0 Approach.
For more than 40 years, WF have produced highly-efficient flow-forming machines which are operated all over the world making WF the innovation leaders in metal spinning. Furthermore, the WF company based in Sendenhorst (Münsterland area) possess considerable experience in the manufacture of horizontal and vertical spinning machines.
“In our opinion, the application of this intuitive and easy-to-operate control system from Abacus will result in the greatest competitive advantages – both for our customers and for our new partnership. We really look forward to the cooperation with Abacus because in this way we are in a position to offer spinning machines with the currently best control-system in the market to our customers and to expand our portfolio,” says Heiko Ohlscher, Managing Director of WF Maschinenbau.
Thorsten Beling from Abacus is also convinced of the future cooperation: “We also look forward to having access to an international sales network with our cooperation partner. This will increase the awareness level of Abacus and WF worldwide and strengthen our market position.”
