The window all-rounder is 10 years old–HOMAG exhibits the most powerful single-portal system of all time
In the spring of 2017, the HOMAG Group combined almost all of its existing brands under the single HOMAG name. The primary aim was to make collaboration with customers even more straightforward and efficient. Now HOMAG is taking the next step: As part of the effort to organize the group's wide product range as clearly as possible for customers around the world, HOMAG will soon present an overhauled, group-wide brand identity at the HOLZ-HANDWERK fair.
Premiere: New machine design, new product names
In the spring of 2017, the HOMAG Group combined almost all of its existing brands under the single HOMAG name. The primary aim was to make collaboration with customers even more straightforward and efficient. Now HOMAG is taking the next step: As part of the effort to organize the group's wide product range as clearly as possible for customers around the world, HOMAG will soon present an overhauled, group-wide brand identity at the HOLZ-HANDWERK fair. This includes the new, modern machine design across all products and new, consistent and coordinated product names. Thus ensuring that HOMAG customers can find what they need quickly and easily. Visitors to HOLZ-HANDWERK can find the machines previously known as powerProfiler BMB 800/900 under the name CENTATEQ S-800/900.
The successful CENTATEQ S-800/900 (BMB 800/900) model proves itself on the market
The "powerProfiler" window machines have been on the market for 10 years. The machine was launched at HOLZ-HANDWERK 2008 — and even then, CNC experts from HOMAG declared the all-rounder to be a machine "fit for the future and flexible for everyday life" with a "firm grip" on window production thanks to its new clamping technology.
And this promise to the market has been fulfilled. Today, the new generation of the HOMAG window machines—the CENTATEQ S-800/900 series—is used around the world. Its applications include installations in all expansion stages from 20 to 50 window units per shift—produced either by stand-alone machines or by machines integrated in automated overall concepts. In particular, the flexibility provided by the clamping and handling technology, the additional console table for special elements, and the woodWOP software enable this machine to meet the requirements of window manufacturers. Indeed, CENTATEQ machines cover a wider range of profiles, corner joints, curved parts and other products than any other solution on the market.
At HOLZ-HANDWERK: The most powerful single-portal system on the market
At the trade fair in Nuremberg, HOMAG is presenting the CENTATEQ S-900 with its maximum equipment—making it the most powerful and most flexible window machine that HOMAG has ever exhibited at a trade fair. The CENTATEQ S-900 has two processing tables and independent units on both portal sides. The processing tables and units of the CENTATEQ S-800 form the basis, in duplicate: This means that two completely different parts can be processed independently of one another simultaneously. The machine also features double-spindle technology: one profile splitting unit with two trimming spindles that can be adjusted to one another in the Y and Z direction via axes. This means that in a longitudinal trimming process, you can use two profile trimmers on one workpiece simultaneously.
The two independent portal sides and the double-spindle technology allow more than 60 units to be produced in one shift when use is optimized. This makes the machine the most powerful single-portal system on the market.
More light: Integrated window systems with adhesive technology
Why new technology? Conventional window production systems were designed for existing window systems. New systems with new properties necessitate new technology: The CENTATEQ comes into its own when dealing with narrow cross-sections. In conjunction with an adhesive technology integrated in the production system, this enables the machine to produce window systems that speak for themselves: an appealing look thanks to extremely narrow profiles, up to 20% larger glass area resulting in more light from a standard window, increased break-in protection and improved thermal insulation.
This all means efficient production and new opportunities — the basis for a successful future in window manufacture.Back to List
