Innovationen für den Holzbau

Cluster Innovativ: Die Hans Hundegger AG zeigt, was sie kann

05.11.2015

Es war eine Premiere, die alle begeisterte: Die Veranstaltung „Cluster Innovativ“ war die optimale Gelegenheit für das Hundegger-Team, das breite Hundegger-Leistungsspektrum einem interessierten Fachpublikum vorzustellen.

 

 

 

Geballtes Know-How und bayerische Gastlichkeit: Die Teilnehmer beim Infotag „Cluster innovativ“ der Hans Hundegger AG am 5. November waren begeistert: In interessanten und kurzweiligen Fachvorträgen gelang es den Referenten,   die wichtigsten Innovationen für den Holzbau anschaulich und kompetent zusammen zu fassen.

 Nach der Begrüßung durch Hundegger-Vorstandsmitglied Walter Fahrenschon, Markus Blenk (Cluster-Initiative Forst und Holz Bayerng gGmbH) und Uwe Andre Kohler (Clustermanagement Forst und Holz BW) ging es gleich direkt in die Praxis: Walter Fahrenschon (Vorstand Vertrieb, Marketing, Service) präsentierte den Gästen die Hans Hundegger AG, ehe Hans Schillmeier (Vorstand Technik) die Teilnehmer persönlich durch das Unternehmen führte.

So viel „Hans Hundegger AG“ macht natürlich hungrig und durstig, und im zünftigen Biergarten konnten die Gäste dann die schwäbisch-bayerisch-allgäuerische Gemütlichkeit genießen.

„Um Mögliches zu erreichen, muss man Unmögliches versuchen“ – unter dieses durchaus provokante Motto hatte Karl Moser, Geschäftsführer der KAMO GmbH (Aichach) seinen Vortrag gestellt und er machte den Zuhörern eindrucksvoll klar, dass sich niemand auf dem Holzweg befindet, der seine unternehmerische Zukunft mit dem Naturstoff Holz verbindet. Mit viel Applaus wurde Karl Moser für diesen spannenden Vortrag und die mutigen unternehmerischen Ansätze belohnt.

Rainer König, Projektleiter MHM (Massiv-Holz-Mauer) bei der Hans Hundegger AG, nutzte dann die Gelegenheit, die überzeugenden Argumente für eine Massiv-Holz-Mauer kompetent zusammen zu fassen. Energetisch und nachhaltig stellt die MHM eine überzeugende Alternative zu Stein und Beton dar, die als hochwertiger und dennoch preiswerter Baustoff allen Anforderungen an Ökologie, Ökonomie, Werthaltigkeit, Ästhetik und Statik gerecht wird.

Für einige der Gäste war es neu, mit welch hervorragenden Dämmwerten schon bei geringen Wanddicken eine Massiv-Holz-Mauer überzeugt. „Die Realisierung von Niedrigenergie- bis hin zum Passivhaus sind problemlos möglich“, schloss Rainer König seinen Vortrag, mit dem er die Besucher durchwegs zu überzeugen wusste.

In lockerer Runde konnten die Besucher von „Cluster Innovativ“ der Hans Hundegger AG anschließend ihre Erkenntnisse vertiefen und in guten Gesprächen neue Kontakte knüpfen und bestehende Verbindungen vertiefen. „Cluster Innovativ war ein Versuch, der uns alle überrascht und begeistert hat. Dieser Erfolg macht uns Mut, diese Veranstaltung auch im nächsten Jahr wieder anzubieten“, freute sich Vorstandsmitglied Walter Fahrenschon.

 

Dübelelemente selbst erzeugen

30.05.2015

Die Standardmaschine beim Stababbund ist die K2i. Üblicherweise wird sie verwendet, um  Holzelemente zu  bearbeiten.

Die K2i mit Dübelaggregat kann hingegen erstmals  Holzelemente  zusammenfügen. Mit einem Zusatzaggregat wird die K2i so auch noch zu einer vollwertigen Brettstapelmaschine.

Die für die jeweilige Elemetbreite benötigten Lamellen werden einzeln auf den Quertransport aufgelegt , automatisch paketiert und der Bohr- und Dübelstation zugeführt.
Dort werden die im Steuerungsprogramm hinterlegten Bohrungen ausgeführt und die im Magazin vorgehaltenen Holzdübel hydraulisch eingepresst.
Das Lamellenpaket wird während des gesamten Vorgangs mit speziellen Niederhaltern zusätzlich fixiert.
Die fertig gedübelten Elemente bis zu einer Breite von 600 mm können nun entweder zuerst gehobelt oder auch gleich auf der K2i fertig bearbeitet werden.

Damit erzeugen selbst kleinere Zimmereien ihre eigenen Deckenelemente.

New ideas just keep on coming

02.02.2015

 

At this year’s Innovation Days staged by Hundegger AG, visitors were treated to an array of innovations, some of them little short of spectacular. In a relaxed atmosphere, visitors had the chance to talk to Hundegger staff and external speakers about the latest developments in the world of timber engineering.

 

 

There was plenty to see at this year’s Innovation Days staged from January 22 – 24 by Hans Hundegger AG. Once again this year, selected timber processing machinery was on show in three different halls. However, on this occasion the mechanical engineering specialists from Hawangen were giving a little more away to the around 900 visitors than on past occasions, offering a sneak preview of innovations yet to be launched.

 

 

 

In addition, visitors were once again treated to a broad-based program of technical presentations, lectures and demonstrations, as well as the chance to chat to Hundegger personnel and gain some valuable in-depth background information. In a hospitality marquee between the halls, the hosts provided a wide selection of drinks and refreshments for the comfort and convenience of guests in true Allgäu style.

 

 

   

 

ROBOT-Drive Solo

 

A new development already launched in the marketplace greeted visitors entering Hall A: The ROBOT-Drive Solo, a low-cost variant of the ROBOT-Drive. This is delivered without a separate sawing unit and should be of interest in particular to smaller-scale joinery operations due to its affordable price tag. Thanks to its 6-axis ROBOT unit and 16-slot tool changer, it offers smaller outfits the same outstanding flexibility and almost unlimited processing spectrum as its sister model – compromising only minimally in terms of processing speed, which is generally not a major issue for this target group. To make up for this, the ROBOT-Drive Solo is able to perform the whole range of joinery tasks in a single pass, without the need for flipping or turning, and all with an affordable entry-level price tag. Where users are looking to increase the machine’s performance, an independent sawing unit can simply be retrofitted if required.

An excursion to Ottobeuren was offered to interested visitors with the opportunity to experience the ROBOT-Drive Solo in action on the premises of a reference customer, and to benefit from his hands-on experience with the new machine. The new arrival has been in operation for a number of months at Blockhausbau Josef Hummel, which specializes in the construction of garden chalets, holiday homes and timber frame homes. CEO Josef Hummel jun. is particularly impressed by the machine’s flexibility, which allows him to complete the whole range of joinery tasks in-house and so maximize value added.

 

 

 

Turning on the spot

 

 

The impressive new developments showcased by Hundegger at the Innovation Days included the pilot model of a new modular assembly and turning table. Thanks to a double turning mechanism integrated into the table, this new development allows timber elements to be turned practically on the spot within a minimum of space. Users can adapt the table by altering the number of turning modules to the required element length.

 

Processing of large-scale components

 

The spectacular highlight of the Innovation Days was, without doubt, the screened presentation of a new Hundegger gantry processing centre whose gigantic dimensions mean it would only just have fitted in the exhibition halls: The PBA-3 is designed for the six-sided processing of large-format CLT components and laminated girders. It enables an astounding maximum component width of 5000 mm and a processing height of up to 500 mm, and can process any optional length of component.

High-powered motors up to 83 kW enable a traversing speed of up to 60 m/sec, while spindle speeds of up to 18000 rpm provide high-quality surface finishes. The two units with tool changer can be supplemented by an additional deep hole drilling unit with 360 swivel facility for drilling depths of up to 1250 mm. The raw panels are automatically gauged prior to processing, and facility to combine several gantries with different set-up and feed variants enhances flexibility still further.

 

Proven solutions

 

Also on show in Hawangen were proven timber processing solutions such as the ROBOT-Drive and K2i joinery machines, the panel processing centre SPM-2 and the SC-3 automatic cutting machine. Visitors had the chance to quiz operating personnel for more details and to glean information from a number of information booths, including a stand providing information on the MHM solid timber wall production line.

 

Dowels on the K2i

 

But Hundegger had another new development up its sleeve to surprise visitors to the exhibition: During its company tour, the company presented a newly developed dowel station for the K2i, which can be used to produce dowel elements up to 625 mm in width. The K2i then goes on to process the finished ceiling element.

 

Lectures and presentations

 

Visitors were offered additional food for thought by a program of accompanying lectures and presentations which dealt with some of the challenges inherent in the joinery, transport and assembly of CLT elements (speaker: Prof. Dr. Gerhard Schickhofer, TU Graz), the possibilities of timber construction (Dipl.-Ing Michael Merk, TU München) and, last but not least, a presentation by Rainer König, Project Manager at Hundegger, on the benefits of the MHM solid timber wall as an alternative to stone and concrete.

Interested visitors also had the chance to debate the possibilities of optimized processing tools, which formed the subject of an expert panel discussion at the “Tool Marketplace”.

 

CAMBIUM

 

At a well-attended workshop, software experts from Hundegger provided an in-depth practical demonstration of the flexibility and enormous performance scope of the new Hundegger production platform CAMBIUM at 6 themed presentation stations. CAMBIUM is developed completely in-house at Hundegger, and covers the entire process starting with transfer of geometry data through to the finished component without encountering any interface-related problems.

 

 

 

 

 

Summing up, visitors to the Innovation Days not only had the chance to enjoy a highly interesting and varied day of discovery, but will also have gone away with plenty of new ideas and impetus for their own further development.
