At the huge CIMT fair in China many suppliers and of course we from WENZEL exhibit coordinate measuring machines. Beside the well-known market companions from Europe also many small Chinese producers are present. For companies that need CMMs, but also for us as a German manufacturer with 50 years of experience, the question of what sets us apart naturally arises.

We would like to outline five essential arguments that are important to us at WENZEL:

  1. Quality starts with mechanics.
    We are convinced that quality is not simply achieved by buying and screwing together individual components. Therefore, we at WENZEL have a very high vertical range of manufacture and already start the precision process with the careful processing of our granite stones. Every inaccuracy of the granite that we phsysically correct ("lapping") does not have to be determined and corrected later by complex compensations.
  2. Quality is a result of the high competence of the developers and the production staff.
    We at WENZEL believe in the quality of our skilled workers. We train our employees intensively and rely on a long partnership so that the acquired competence is reflected in our machines. We are convinced that only excellently trained employees with a high understanding of the machine as a whole can develop and manufacture individual parts at a high standard.
  3. The customer's problem determines the solution and the design of the machines.
    WENZEL has grown through flexible solutions. Our customers rightly often demand something “out of the box” from us: longer, wider, in a different colour. No problem - challenge us!
  4. Our Willingess to implement innovative partner solutions, allows us to offer our customers the best possible solution.
    If manufacturers offer only their own components, this always means compromises for the customer. We at WENZEL therefore work together with companies that are better at something than we are. Here we are honest for the benefit of our customers. We work with the best to offer you the best - that is our goal!
  5. Sustainability is expressed through good customer service, long and global availability of spare parts and permanently low operating costs.
    WENZEL machines last long, very long. Even though we enjoy selling machines we are especially proud of this fact. We quickly provide all necessary spare parts and the corresponding service via our subsidiaries and partners: fast and at fair conditions. This way our customers can also enjoy their WENZEL CMMs for a long time. We want to establish long-term relationships with our customers.

For us at WENZEL, the production of a high-precision coordinate measuring machine begins with a passion for good and solid craftsmanship. The selection of the used materials has to be made carefully and on the basis of the desired quality, not on the highest possible profit of the supplier. This is our tradition & philosophy and we are convinced that there are no better-quality machines on the market.

Five arguments and no buzzwords like software, automation or industry 4.0? Where is the innovation? We at WENZEL are currently investing a lot in these topics and are convinced that this will provide our customers with great added value now and in the future. The integration of optical sensors into our software family, the development of tools for predictive maintenance, the standardization of our automation interfaces, all of these are important components of our solutions, but they are not decisive for the basis - a good measuring machine!

We at WENZEL believe: Tradition and innovation are not mutually exclusive! We know and keep our roots, but we stay ahead every day. We look forward to proving it to you! A good opportunity for this is a visit to the Control show in Stuttgart, Germany. Find out more about our stand at the control! There you will find many market companions again, but only a few who embody the same values as we do!

See you there!
