Benchmarking capacities expanded considerably

Our benchmarking capacity was expanded further due to the huge level of demand. Insiders know that, if a customer expresses interest in making a purchase, the benchmarking department builds parts on the corresponding machine. These are then provided to the interested party to assess a wide range of purchase criteria, for example the quality of the surface finish or mechanical properties. The benchmark is thus our “reference workshop” and therefore performs a vital role as part of the sales proce...
