Installation of a new balancing machine

In 2014, we performed our first balancing machine maintenance at Leuco N.V. in Belgium, gaining a longtime loyal customer. Since then, we regularly visit the Waregem facility for the annual maintenance of the balancing machines there.

Now the two old ACURO TD models were reinforced by a new Tool Dynamic TD Economic Plus, which was professionally installed on site by our service technician Mr. Brenner in mid-January. In addition to the usual installation, inspection and training of the operating personnel, SWT also took care of the modification of the standard model according to customer requirements. Thus, the machine was equipped with a special industrial panel PC, which significantly increased the ease of operation and flexibility.

Employee Anniversary

Thanks to Swen Lauterwasser

Anniversary Swen Lauterwasser

Mr. Ehrenfeld, Mr. Brenner and Mr. Pfeiffer (from left to right) congratulate Mr. Lauterwasser (2nd from right)

10 years ago, Mr. Lauterwasser started with a mini-job at SWT Services and at the same time graduated from a technical school in Ludwigsburg as a state-certified technician for mechanical engineering. In the meantime he has long become an indispensable part of our team. We are very grateful for his expertise and his friendly nature, which enriches our services.
On 04.12.2020 he received therefore from the management beside flowers, a bottle of sparkling wine and a small acknowledgment for his many years of reliable cooperation also a personal thank you from the management.
We are looking forward to further teamwork in the coming years and decades.

The SWT Services Team

before - after

general overhaul, before – after

Contactless alternative:

SWT offers corona compliant services

Financial constraints and hesitations regarding visitors in the company – Corona sometimes results in unfavorable conditions for maintenance and repairs. But there are alternatives.

Thanks to Corona, “saving” is right at the top of the agenda in many companies. Frequently occurring problems in the printing process, however, do not have to be accepted helplessly. If, for example, the adapters are frequently stuck or no longer clamped correctly, it is necessary to intervene before the clamping system is further – possibly irreparably – damaged by rough handling.

before - afterSWT therefore also offers the possibility of sending in impression cylinders and shafts and having them repaired or overhauled outside the company.

A general overhaul can ensure the continued smooth production flow in the company for a long time – at significantly lower costs than a new purchase. This saves money in the long term and helps to eliminate problems such as quality fluctuations in the print image, declining concentricity, or long set-up times.

The in-house repair workshop at the Ilsfeld site looks forward to receiving your order. For your planning reliability SWT Services will prepare a fixed price offer for you. Give us a call! We are pleased to give you more information.

SWT Services congratulates the winner of the anniversary raffle:

Schaeffler Aerospace wins exclusive maintenance

Schaeffler Aerospace Germany

Winner of our raffle:
Schaeffler Aerospace Germany GmbH & Co. KG

Interested companies had a few months to take part in our competition. Just in time for the SWT founding month of May, the winner of our maintenance, which was announced as the main prize, was drawn. Our congratulations go to Schaeffler Aerospace Germany GmbH & Co. KG, which was able to prevail over the competition in a random draw.

Since the celebrations this year are unfortunately somewhat shorter than originally planned due to the corona, we can at least pass on a bit of the festive atmosphere and look forward with the Schaeffler plant management to the forthcoming service visit.

SWT safely on the road

ADAC Driving Safety Training

ADAC Driving Safety Training, Stuttgart Leonberg

We do everything we can to ensure that our technicians arrive on time, reliably and safely. To prepare our employees for adverse traffic conditions, part of our team has faced the challenges of a driving safety training.

On the ADAC traffic training facility at the Solitude-Ring in Stuttgart Leonberg it was possible to accelerate, slide, drive in serpentines and abruptly brake from high speed. Sudden obstacles such as water jets or slippery roads also had to be mastered.

In addition to the practical part, our team underwent extensive theoretical instruction and is now prepared for all the adversities of road traffic. Especially for our service technicians with their large number of field assignments, this day was a valuable experience.

We are therefore very well prepared in terms of traffic technology and are already looking forward to our next assignment with you!

Flextrus AB Sweden:

Increasing efficiency thanks to yearly maintenance

Maintenance at Flextrus AB, Sweden

Maintenance at Flextrus AB, Sweden

Since 2016 Flextrus AB has been benefiting from the support of SWT Services. Machine downtimes because of problems with the clamping system that used to be frequent could be completely wiped out. Without stuck adapters setup times were clearly reduced and machine operators can quickly switch from one job to another.

So it becomes apparent that investing in an annual professional maintenance pays off.

We are looking forward to a further good cooperation with Flextrus AB and are pleased to help them keep the system running.

With the clamping technology service of SWT Services your clamping system will always effect full performance. Please contact us for further information.

Deaconry certificate

Co-financing of the vehicle of the Schozach-Bottwartal diaconia center

New vehicle for the diaconia center

As an institution of the Protestant churches, the Diakonie stands for “practised charity”. Under this motto it fulfils numerous social tasks and helps people in need or in socially unjust circumstances. Around 10 million people in Germany receive advice, care, nursing and medical care from the Diakonie. This is an important project that we want to support with our contribution to the new vehicle. The cooperation of several sponsors made it possible for the Schozach-Bottwartal diaconia center in Ilsfeld to purchase a Ford Transit for employees and for the transport of accompanied persons.

SWT takes responsibility

Donation handover to JuLe Ilsfeld

From left to right: Mrs. Bachmann from JuLe Ilsfeld together with Mr. Ehrenfeld and Mrs. Fuchs from SWT Services at the first donation handover in October 2019.

Any company can help make the world a better place. There are many ways to do this. This starts with a pleasant working atmosphere and consideration for the employees. And, of course, with regard to our environment, a lot can be achieved by avoiding waste and saving resources. But it is also decisive for our future which people will live in it and how they will shape it. And here we can already help to promote social skills and education – as an investment in better interaction in the coming decades.

SWT Services GmbH & Co. KG has therefore decided to enter into a long-term partnership with a local children’s charity in order to offer unbureaucratic support where it is really needed.

With an assured annual donation of 1,000,-€ to the JuLe Ilsfeld (youth welfare in their actual environment) children, whose parents cannot afford it, are made possible tutoring, school material, the membership in a club or the participation in a leisure activity.

In addition, the JuLe looks after children with behavioural problems and promotes behavioural therapy. In this way, it is possible to contribute to the development of a healthy society at a very early stage. A great approach, which SWT not only supports financially, but also through the direct involvement of SWT employees in campaigns or activities.

In order to offer the young people perspectives, an insight into the world of work and also into handicraft activities, interested JuLe children can get a taste of the work processes at SWT at certain times.

A partnership for young people and a responsible investment in our future.
