Successful eurolaser customers
System solutions out of semi-finished plastics
Plastic is a material that we just cannot do without, one that has become an integral part of our daily lives. The potential for innovation this material offers is still very high. The development of new raw material components combined with sophisticated processing technologies mean that more and more tailor-made solutions are being made available for new fields of application. Good prospects for anyone who is well versed in this segment!
Günter Schäfer GmbH is a specialist when it comes to the high-quality processing of semi-finished plastic products. For over half a century now this innovative family-run company has been processing many different kinds of plastics, PMMA, PC, PVC, PP, PETG and many more, and has developed to become a brand name for top quality whose reputation has spread far beyond the borders of Germany.
Schäfer counts a flair for innovation, flexibility and service among the most important ingredients for sustaining success in such a face-paced environment. A wide range of products and services also plays a vital role here. Machinery and plant engineering is another major field of business in addition to top quality products for medical, laboratory and dental technologies. In order to set itself apart from the profile of a classic processor of plastics, Schäfer supports its customers as a system partner, developing optimum cost and material constructions in conjunction with customised logistics and maintenance services. The combination of function and design is the key element in the construction of individual cover hoods and cladding.
Although object and lighting design are also among the core business activities at Günter Schäfer GmbH. These include both private as well as business fields. In particular the material properties of acrylic (PMMA) can be exploited to achieve fantastic effects in architectural constructions as well as in trade fair and shop construction.
In order to meet the high expectations of its customers and to be well equipped for future developments the company has invested systematically in the further development of different approaches to solutions, technology and processing methods in the last few years. Meanwhile over 700 tons of raw material a year are processed in the two locations in Germany and in Switzerland in order to fulfil the more than 8000 orders that come in from approximately 900 customers.
The technical equipment at Günter Schäfer GmbH also includes a laser system from eurolaser.
Mr Schmied, the technical manager at Schäfer:
“One of the best decisions we have made in recent years was to purchase a eurolaser
system. The state-of-the-art laser system runs in two shifts and saves us an awful lot of
time, money and stress. We have also been able to expand our range of products and
services thanks to the unique possibilities offered by laser technology and have
increased quality as well. A purchase that quickly paid off and one that we would opt for
again, every time.”
If the target they set themselves “to integrate innovations into existing processes at a very early stage and to create value-driven innovations ourselves” is to be achieved, then it is necessary to invest in sustainable technologies. Laser makes an important contribution in this respect. Schäfer Kunststofftechnik sets new standards in quality, expertise and service and will continue to play a leading role on the plastics processing market in future as well with its innovations and first class products.
