Mahr Engineered Solutions: “A great deal of experience with customer-specific solutions”

Marketing Team

Mahr "Engineered Solutions" – individual customer solutions – is one of Mahr's key areas at Control 2017. In the interview, Axel Binder, Head of Mahr Engineered Solutions, reports on the global success of these measurement solutions.

Mr. Binder, what is Mahr Engineered Solutions for?
Manufacturing companies are increasingly demanding the optimum quality control of their workpieces according to specific solutions of measurement tasks. With Mahr "Engineered Solutions" we offer exactly these individually designed measuring stations – from the simple manually operated solution to the fully automated solution with robotic loading.

What experience has Mahr had in this area?
A great deal of experience! For decades we have been offering individual solutions for dimensional features such as diameter, length, distance, height, position, concentricity and roundness as well as surface and complex contour features. The aim is always to measure these features quickly, simply, precisely and reliably – whether in the measuring room, directly on the production island or integrated into the production line.

For which product groups does Mahr offer customer solutions?
"Engineered Solutions" unites customer-specific measurement solutions with the know-how of various product groups. These can be high-end devices from "MarSurf" for contour and surface measurement, measuring stations from "MarSolution" using the components of the Millimar program or the shaft measuring stations from "MarShaft", which are integrated into robot-assisted sequences.

Does Mahr offer the entire range of technological know-how?
Absolutely! Depending on the measurement task, we rely on tactile, pneumatic or optical sensors. In addition, we integrate the desired functions such as weighing or engraving workpieces. Even Industry 4.0 is no foreign word for us. The networking of our systems into one complete manufacturing network is already common practice as well as automatic workpiece detection, central program management and similar technologies.

Are the customer solutions from Mahr Engineered Solutions available worldwide?
Yes, one of our strengths is that we have been designing and distributing these solutions worldwide – including consulting and after-sales service. The competence of the Mahr Group companies MWF Roland Friedrich GmbH in Grossostheim, SMPR in France and Mahr Federal in the USA joins the "Engineered Solutions" location in Göttingen. In addition, we are available in many countries through our worldwide sales organization.

What about the important market in Asia?
We are very well positioned here too: At the Mahr location in Suzhou, China, we have our own location from where customers are not only given comprehensive support, but customized solutions are planned and produced locally.

Thank you very much for the interview, Mr. Binder!
