In 1970, Weinig pioneered line assembly of machines for solid wood processing. To this day, the majority of production is completed on the company’s Montage 1 assembly line, which recently produced its 35,000th molder.
The Montage 1 assembly line currently produces the Powermat 600, 1200 and 2400 models, which also account for the majority of sales revenue from Weinig's core business of planing and profiling machines. Weinig used its traditional summer festival to celebrate the milestone.
“In terms of sales, Montage 1 has generated billions of euros,” Weinig CEO Wolfgang Pöschl said in a statement. “This has provided a solid foundation for developments that have made Weinig the leading technology provider for industry and small businesses. The milestone machine (a Powermat 1200) is one such innovation. Equipped with the patented PowerLock tool system, the machine is the epitome of modern production technology with low setup times and ‘Made in Germany’ with perfect results in surface quality. The Powermat 1200 also features state-of-the-art control technology and can be integrated seamlessly into high-performance industrial production lines.
"The 35,000th machine from this assembly line will not be the last milestone we celebrate together."
