Machines for grinding, polishing, edge trimming, polishing and deburring of steel strips and workpieces are core products of the product range Their in-house robotic capabilities provide solutions to automation and process integration tasks.
Trend-setting innovations in the fields of robotics and CNC machines for grinding and polishing tools, as well as state-of-the-art technology for strip edge trimming by metal-cutting and surface finishing, are available for coil stock and tools that demand high quality.
Under the operational management of Heinz Berger Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG the group has grown in the last 15 years due to the acquisition of five more engineering companies. These companies are united as brand marks under the roof of the Berger Gruppe.
The increase of the employees as well as the enlargement of the product range led to an expansion at the headquarters in Wuppertal. Nowadays the group has 145 employees at a production area of 6,500 m² (69,965 sq. ft.) and an office space of 1,500 m² (16,146 sq. ft.) generating sales of about 23 million € each year.
The product range consists mainly of approximately 250 mostly CNC controlled machine types as well as more than 600 robot integrations.
Today, between 70 and 110 machinery systems are built every year. The company has been a robot system partner of ABB and Kuka for several years. In order to build the machines, approx. 40 robots for automation and workpiece guidance are installed every year. Overall, more than 600 robot applications have been implemented since 1998.
For its performances the company group was named “market leader for grinding machines” by the competition “Germany at its best” in 2013 and received the economic award of Wuppertal in 2015 as the “best company of the year”.
