Change in management

Dear Business Partner,

After the announcement about changes within the Erlenbach management in December 2022, we are honoured to continue to keep you informed on this topic today:

We are very pleased to inform you that Mr. Kai Wiedemuth will take over as Managing Director of Erlenbach Machines GmbH, the sales and marketing company of the group, as of May 01, 2023.

Mr. Thorsten Jacoby will continue to lead the managing activities of the production entity, Erlenbach GmbH, as Managing Partner.

Your previous contact persons for all other questions concerning projects or beyond will remain unchanged.

We wish Kai Wiedemuth, who has been part of the Erlenbach management team since 2018, every success in his new tasks and look forward to building on the trust placed in Erlenbach with him in his new position.

The Innovation - EMMotion Vario

This system is characterized by the following outstanding points:

  • existing third-party tools can be used without an additional adapter
  • a spindle lift system adapts the machine to deeper tools by up to 500mm
  • thus, the machine always has a maximum stroke of 1500mm at its disposal, no matter how deep the tooling system is
  • despite the stroke variation, the machine impresses with its compact design
  • the EMMotion Vario can be easily extended by individual up- & downstream automations.
  • an optional freely programmable control system for individual process control rounds off the concept
