We only grow if we face up to the challenges. Therefore, the innovative development and custom manufacturing of machines is an important part of Hofmann. As a manufacturer of special purpose machines, we offer bespoke solutions in addition to a fixed product portfolio. Our development services are reflected in both areas.
Optimizing the existing
The optimisation of existing machines, assembly lines or components is always a matter of concern for us. As this means added value in machine functionality, efficiency or facilitation of the application for our customers.
New developments for future factory
In addition, our development group works with great commitment to develop new machines, components and functions. For this reason, the requirements of the market and customers are carefully analysed and evaluated. Custom manufacturing and product development begins with an idea and ends with the market launch of the product. It passes through the planning, conception, design, development and test phases, as well as commissioning and the support of prototype phases, until the product is launched on the market. In these processes, various technical departments interact with their knowledge, know-how and experience to jointly develop a new product.
This is a challenging task, as different elements form the basis of the development. On the one hand, the time factor of the development is always the focus of attention, on the other hand, the high and efficient functionality of the machine is an important part. In addition, the safety aspect places high and complex demands, as all necessary precautions and requirements must be considered. This means an enormous development effort for us, which always makes it an interesting and challenging project.
