  • Wire 2020 postponed 06.03.2020  

    Messe Düsseldorf has postponed Wire 2020 due to the spread of the coronavirus. Jouhsen-bündgens fully understands that this decision was taken to protect the health of both us as exhibitors and our customers. We will be happy to participate in the event once a new date is announced. Until then, we will provide you with information about our latest developments, including our new PrecisionCut UD0 straightening and cutting machine, both individually and on our website. read more

    An understandable decision

    We at Jouhsen-bündgens were all looking forward to Wire 2020, and have been preparing for the event for many months. “We were looking forward to presenting one of the highlights of our product range in the new PrecisionCut UD0, our smallest straightening and cutting machine,” explains Dr. Peter Renz, CEO of Jouhsen-bündgens. Ultimately, Messe Düsseldorf were left with no alternative but to postpone the event. This was an understandable decision, given the fact that we are all responsible for preventing the spread of the coronavirus. “Despite this, it is still hugely disappointing for us as an exhibitor. We hope that our customers and those interested in our products use alternative sources of information,” says Renz.

    New website online

    Alongside direct contact with customers, the internet is a vital source of information. “Now that Wire has been postponed, we are especially pleased that the relaunch of our website is almost ready,” says Renz. Featuring a new structure, updated content and a responsive design that makes it easier to read on smartphones and tablets, the new-look Jouhsen-bündgens website will be online from April.

    Looking forward to the new date

    It goes without saying that Jouhsen-bündgens will be there when Wire 2020 opens its doors at a new date. “The UD0 will already have been delivered to customers by that time, so we will not be able to showcase it. But I’m sure we will be able to present another of our high-performance machines,” emphasizes Renz. What makes trade fairs so special is the opportunity to meet and speak to customers and especially potential customers in person. The specialists for wire processing see excellent potential for rotary straightening in an increasing number of applications.

    Visitors to Wire 2020 will most likely still find Jouhsen-bündgens at stand G51 in Hall 11 on the new date. Further information will follow.

    Rotary straightening on a range of components

    Rotary straightening is the process of choice for a wide variety of parts made from wire or pipe. “Rotary straightening is increasingly being used in new fields, such as medical engineering or electric vehicles. With this in mind, we are looking forward to some interesting discussions with customers and potential customers at Wire 2020,” says CEO Dr. Peter Renz. Jouhsen-bündgens combines engineering expertise and high vertical integration with modern machine tools and its own control systems, making it a reliable partner to customers in both the development and production of innovative products.

    PrecisionCut UD0 – rotary straightening for even the thinnest wires

    Visitors to Wire 2020 will be able to watch the PrecisionCut UD0, our newest and smallest straightening and cutting machine, live in action at the stand. “Components are becoming thinner and thinner, and the requirements for straightness and surface finish are extremely demanding,” says Renz. The UD0 is helping Jouhsen-bündgens meet these challenges. Precise and efficient, the machine’s compact size allows it to process both long and short sections of wire measuring 0.05 to 1.5 mm in diameter and 3 to 3,000 mm in length.

    Come to Wire 2020 and see for yourself at stand G51 in hall 11. We look forward to seeing you.

  • Optimized PrecisionGrind PG6: accelerated production process 27.03.2019  

    The proven precision grinding machine PrecisionGrind PG6 has been redesigned. It features a new saddle close to the grind stone that allows the machine to now also process short blanks in the required length. Workpieces no longer have to be cut to length after grinding. As a result, this further optimizes the entire production process. read more

    Process speeds of up to 600 parts per minute possible

    The PrecisionGrind PG6 has long been a tried-and-tested solution for finishing needle points quickly and precisely. The new saddle now also makes it possible to process shorter blanks, as the parts can be positioned more accurately as they are fed in. The machine is capable of process speeds of up to 600 parts per minute in a continuous grinding process. To achieve this, a transport wheel separates the blanks from the magazine and precisely positions them axially. The blanks are transferred to the transport unit before being conveyed precisely along the grind stone. By processing the blanks directly in the required length, the machine removes the need to cut the workpieces to length after grinding. This accelerates the whole process and reduces error rates.

    Easy to use thanks to clear design

    The PG6 has much more to offer than just stable and robust processing, however. It has a clear design and is accessible from all sides. The machine’s simple and precise control elements make it easy to adjust the length and shape of the points as well as the process speed. This makes it possible to accurately set the grind stone itself and the speed of the grind stone and transport. The machine speed is infinitely adjustable and the grinding material can be varied to achieve different surface finishes.

    Inform yourself about the technical data for the PG6 in our product sheet.

  • Wire 2018: High-tech wire processing leads to excellent results 06.03.2018

    PrecisionCut UD2 – For wires with sensitive surfaces

    The proven PrecisionCut UD2 straightening and cutting machine is now suitable for an even wider range of uses. It can be fitted with an optional rotary straightener with nozzles. The special shape of this straightening unit makes it possible to carefully process wires with highly sensitive surfaces by significantly reducing the friction between the wire and the straightener. One of the UD2’s characteristic features is the flexible module system, which allows users to attach a range of additional straightening units. This ensures high flexibility with short changeover times. The machine can therefore be used for a wide range of materials. It can efficiently process materials with different strengths, surfaces and diameters. Depending on the version, the UD2 is suitable for short and long sections of 5 to 4,000 millimeters, and for wire diameters between 0.05 and 4 millimeters. The maximum stroke rate is 500 rpm.

    PrecisionShape EB9 – For fast and simple machining

    The PrecisionShape EB9 is the perfect machine when it comes to machining parts that have been straightened and cut to length. The new machine lets users process parts measuring 4-10 millimeters in diameter and 50-150 millimeters at both ends. To machine the ends of rods, axles or shafts, the EB9 has a pair of processing heads that enable fast and flexible tool insertion via a HSK holder. The EB9’s mechanical drive system makes it a cost-effective solution that is easy to handle, service and retool.

    We look forward to seeing you at Wire: April 16 - 20, 2018 in Düsseldorf, hall 11, stand 11G51.

  • Jouhsen Bundgens develops new system for stamping and grinding surgical needles 04.11.2016  

    Jouhsen Bundgens has developed a special solution for stamping and grinding surgical needles. What makes this needle stamping and grinding machine special is its integrated production system. This means the entire process runs without any intervention from the operator, while servo-aided grinding processes ensure high reproducibility. The machine enables cost-effective production of medium to large batches of surgical needles. read more

    Stamping triangular needles

    An eccentric press stamps the body of the inserted wire sections into triangular needles, and conveys them to a transfer system. The first and second side of a needle are each ground at two CNC-controlled stations: first rough grinding and then fine. The final side is then ground at a further station.
