Double cut for perfectly separated pvc profiles
Düspohl has developed the chiplessly separating system for pvc profiles SynCut 150G - a guillotine with a hot knife to separate wrapped profiles without any clamping. Using an...
...automated cutting system, you will run at higher production speeds, while staff will be available to focus on other tasks.
The new double cut-function of the SynCut 150G goes one step further: To make sure that the wrapped profiles, running with gaps between them, will be processed without foil overhangings, it cuts the foil exactly at the front and rear edges.
This solution is especially important to prevent problems when measuring the profiles in the following production steps. Sensors might mistake foil overhanging for a profile edge.

New RoboWrap video 2020
Unfortunately, but for good reasons, we cannot show you RoboWrap live at the FRONTALE 2020. However, we do not intend to hide it from you, so we are taking it right onto your screen.
oday, we are presenting the new video, which also shows how to operate the machine and how the software actually works.
Find out how easy it is to teach a new profile geometry by Drag & Drop. The intuitive user interface does not require a computer specialist, the same operator who is now performing the set-up manually will easily learn how to use it.
Corrections will be done on a tablet while the machine is producing, so results can be controlled immediately.
First aid for kids – easily learn to help
düspohl helps kids to learn first-aid measures
What can I do in case of burnings, an insect bite or in case of intoxication? And - most importantly : How can I help others in case of ...
In cooperation with publishing house K& L Verlag, the local association Förderverein Notfallmedizin Bielefeld e.V. (Emergency medicine Bielefeld) has published an easy to understand work book for girls and boys aged from 6 to 10. And we think that's great!
This is why we support the project
The book contains many colouring pages and transfers the ability to help in an emergency in a playful way. It features the siblings Olivia and Mario that go through different emergency situations - always in company of the sausage dog "Waldi". On 32 pages, the give advice on how to deal with burnings, heat stroke, insect bites, intoxication or shocks. Kids receive age-based knowledge on how to behave in an emergency and call for help. At the same time educators, teachers and parents can discuss the topics using the book's images and texts.
Supported by many local companies, the work books are distributed for free to kids at elementary schools in the district of Guetersloh. We as düspohl are happy to be one of them.

Most successful year
2019 was by far the most succesful business year since the foundation of the company by Reinhard Düspohl in 1967. The worldwide export share was higher than 60%.
The strong growth shows that we have developed the technologic concepts that meet the requirements of the pvc and wood industries. We would like to thank our customers for the great cooperation and their trust. We are looking forward to exciting projects in the future in which we will prove our strength in innovation by developing smart technologic solutions.
MultiWrap Wood goes Moscow
Woodex is Russia's most important fair for the woodworking, furniture production and wood waste utilisation industries. New records were reached in 2019:
350 companies from 27 countries showed their novelties and most exciting solutions to 9,197 visitors.
Duespohl was also represented on the fair: Imawell, our partner for the Russian speaking countries, showcased a MultiWrap Wood 400 along with the premelter UniMelt 40. "The visitors were more interested in wrapping than in other surface technologies", reports Jakob Fuhrmann, General Director of Imawell - who is very satisfied with their successful participation. "Our well-known contacts were once more enthusiastic about the innovative technologies we supply. Additionally, we also convinced quite a few new customers."
360° wrapping of drawers and furniture components
DrawerLine 300V is one of the latest developments made by düspohl. The line is the complete solution for vertical 360° wrapping including a synchronized separating system.
Each of its components is full of innovative technologies for a remarkably high production speed and significantly shorter set-up times. Equipped with a connection to your ERP system, it is ready for Industry 4.0.
Thanks to automatic format adjustment, the machine can switch from the minimum height to the maximum height within only 6 minutes. Since set-up requires less time, more time is actually available for wrapping profiles – this investment pays off fast!
The automatic reel change means that you don’t have to interrupt production due to change of decorative material either.
Production speed also helps you to increase your output considerably: the machine produces at up to 100 m/min.
Since the machine equipped with the düspohl slot coater wraps by using hot melt glue, the coated profiles will immediately be ready for further processing.
In our booth, we showcased three top retrofit machine components: UniMelt, SlotCoater and DigiApp. "We see a large potential for automatisation technologies in the North American market", resumes Andreas Jäger, duespohl Sales Manager for the US and Canada. Many processes for which duespohl offers efficient automatic solutions are still being operated by manpower.
