WERNER Pumps, designers, manufactures, suppliers and maintenance specialist of high-pressure jetting equipment, has installed and commissioned new CNC equipment at its headquarters in Springs. The R3 million investment in the cutting-edge Haas machine tools has enabled the company to cut production time on some components by 50% or more, helping to speed up turnaround time on its 100% locally manufactured high-pressure jetting equipment.
Sebastian Werner, MD at Werner Pumps, says that the new CNC machine has also helped his team to create more components in-house. “There are certain things that we could not make ourselves or justify manufacturing in-house previously, because they were simply too time-consuming. But with the new equipment, we’re able to create even more of our components than ever before, and to prototype and test new ideas more quickly.”
The investment in the CNC machine has sparked other additions and changes to the Werner Pumps workshop, including installing a German-made compressor from Keiser that services the entire workshop floor.
