Hjerno is investing to keep up with growth

As with most other companies, the Covid-19 crisis and the lockdown during spring also hurt Hjerno Tool Factory. But during the autumn we were fortunately able to observe that the plastics industry has really picked up speed again.

In fact, the last months of 2020 were some of the busiest months in the company's history. So in order to keep up with the ambitious growth goals we have set ourselves, we are currently finalising several investments in our machinery - including two new five-axis CNC machining centres.

“Based on the past six months, we believe in continued growth into 2021. It has been pleasant to see that despite a Covid-19 crisis, we were able to grow in 2020 and we now look into 2021 with high expectations,” says Managing Director Aage Agergaard.

Five-axis milling machines and advanced measuring equipment

As mentioned, the new investments include two five-axis machining centres - one with an attached robot - as well as a comprehensive upgrade of measurement equipment and pallet systems.

“This is some very advanced equipment, which in addition to increasing our capacity and quality assurance must further ensure a better transition between our day and evening shifts, as measuring equipment and pallet systems will help to increase the manageability of the tasks from one shift to the other,” explains Aage Agergaard.

Machines and equipment are expected to be delivered during February or March.
