Inspiring stories of a successful partnership
In this live event, Herbert Mayr, Managing Director at ALLMATIC, Thomas Weinhold, Senior Sales Manager at Fastems, and Christian Heiler, who is responsible for quotation and project management of automation solutions at HELLER, will discuss the flourishing journey of their collaboration, the key challenges of this project, and the ways of working together to realize the potential of the unique agile robot cell.
ALLMATIC-Jakob Spannsysteme GmbH
Before Herbert Mayr took on the Managing Director position at the well-known machine vices (needs fixing) manufacturer almost two years ago, he had been in charge of the production for more than 10 years.
To this day, he has accumulated many years of experience in milling and grinding, work preparation as well as process optimization. As a REFA technician for industrial engineering, he knows what is important for “made in Germany” productions. He has always been driven to finding and maintain the optimal balance of quality, cost-effectiveness, and delivery reliability in the manufacturing process.
It was also Mayr who initiated and implemented the automation solution for both pallet and part handling that meets the demanding challenges of production in different economic situations.
Quotation and Project Manager for Pallet Automation and Robot Cells,
Christian Heiler has been working at Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH since 1993.
He started out the classic way with an apprenticeship as an electronics technician, specializing in production technology. He then completed technical school where he studied automation technology. At HELLER, he has worked in a wide variety of departments in electrical design, from PLC programming to preparing quotations. He also finished his further training to become a technical business economist through evening classes. For several years now, he has been working with quotation and project management in the field of automation.
Christian’s extensive experience in automation, both technical-wise and business-wise, makes him a valuable intermediary between sales and end customers. He has very well-established connections with automation manufacturers worldwide. This, indeed, is evidenced through his hundreds of automation solutions implemented worldwide, with a large portfolio of automation manufacturers and cell controller suppliers.
Senior Sales & Partner Manager,
Thomas Weinhold has been with Fastems since 2001.
He initially started as a sales manager and was responsible for customers in Austria. Over the years, he has developed into the role of a partner manager for our customers in the machine tool industry.
His close relationship to the market, to the customers’ needs, and to the outcomes of automation requirement development makes him, not only a valuable and experienced contact person, but also an all-rounder when it comes to sustainable, competitive automation. This is proven by his active contacts with machine tool manufacturers as well as hundreds of automation solution implementations, ranging from standard solutions to customer-specific concepts for both pallet and part handling.
Customer case story:
Increased manufacturing flexibility – even with market fluctuations – thanks to agile automation system and automatic setup changes
It was possibly one of the most ambitious automation projects at ALLMATIC-Jakob Spannsysteme so far, something that was probably unheard-of and completely unique, namely creating a robot cell for handling both pallets and parts.
