WHY IT’S MADE. BEWO CUTTING SYSTEMS – HOW DOES INNOVATION HELP USERS IN CHALLENGING SITUATIONS?”
As in most companies, innovation is the breeding ground for growth and in the long run survival of the company. What distinguishes Bewo in this area is that they have implemented the latest innovation through a pilot at several customers. The representatives of these customers have therefore actively participated in drawing up the specifications and implementing the various concepts.
Easy Engineering: How important is innovation and R&D for actual and future products?
BEWO: Our latest innovation was the development of an integrated chamfer machine into our cutting machines.

Nowadays the demand for cutting with integrated chamfering feasibility at both tube ends is gaining towards traditional cutting in combination with deburring. In order to maintain our market position, we need to have this possibility as well.
E.E: What are the needs of the users on the markets that you are active?
BEWO: We see a tendency in the market that products more and more require chamfering instead of deburring at the tube ends. With the aid of chamfering, you can obtain a defined tube end, which is often required especially in the automotive industry. But also, other processes, like bending, that often comes after cutting requires a more defined tube end.
E.E: What products/solutions does your company bring that are the most innovative?
BEWO: Cutting with integrated chamfering is not new in the market, but Bewo created a concept that results in an excellent balance between flexibility and productivity. The benefit of that is that the cost of ownership for such products remains competitive into the market.
E.E: What are the challenges that users encounter in their line of work?
BEWO: In the tube cutting industry, especially in the automotive market, JIT delivery with absolute assurance are key points to survive. This is absolutely our starting point for our innovations. This finally results in a high grade of process automation in combination with an excellent and reliable Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
E.E: How does innovation help them in these situations?
BEWO: Our new control system allows the continuous monitoring of the OEE. Besides this we gather these data from various machines to set a bench market for our machines. Using this data in the best way, our customers together with Bewo have input how this situation can be improved. Bewo offers customers various programs to take care of this continuous improvement program.
E.E: How is digitalization changing your field of activity?
BEWO: Coming back to the demand of JIT delivery quick and reliable planning of the jobs is critical. The best way to ensure this, is a direct connection of the installation with the ERP system from the customer. Currently all of our production lines offer this option. By performing simulations before releasing the production we assure that all orders are capable within the feasibility of the machines. With the special feature “nesting” we also optimize the sequence of orders in order to produce it economically.
E.E: What tasks/processes can users do easier and more efficient with your products/solutions because of innovation?
BEWO: Our new control system facilitates the operation of the machine and become less operator dependent. The control contains intelligence to A) create cutting programs based on product data B) nesting to reduce scrap rate drastically and C) may set up other functions automatically rather than leaving it to the choice of the operator.
E.E: Tell us some tips & tricks about prevention / maintenance for your products/solutions?
BEWO: The data we collect from the monitoring of the performance of the machine will be used as input for preventive maintenance. By doing so we can adapt these maintenance schedules to the individual use and circumstances of each customer. This creates customization with the goal of minimizing the costs of maintenance without compromising the availability of the machine. Upon customer wishes the data from this monitoring are linked with our service department. In combination with a service agreement, we totally unburden the customer, making sure our slogan We take care is taken care of.

In conversations with our customers, two topics quickly are discussed: increased energy costs and high material prices. Based on our strategy in helping customers overcome current challenges, we have focused reduction of waste. Cutting creates waste and this is a daily loss. To reduce this waste, BEWO has developed an automatic nesting programme. It can and will reduce the annual amount of waste up to 13%! When buying tonnes of material, this quickly makes a substantial saving on procurements. In addition to this, it contributes to the circular economy.

Feedback and conclusions of the survey, based on 30 respondents.
84% of the participants rated the services of Bewo as good or higher. So there is still room for improvement.
10 to 15% of the participants think that the speed/response time should be improved.
43% of the participants would like to see an increase in the accessibility of the Service Department.
Improvement actions within Bewo
We will investigate internally what kind of service requests have a relatively long response time and how we can improve this in the medium term.
Bewo will extend the reachability of its service department by telephone from 07:30 to 17:30. In the medium/long term, Bewo will endeavour to extend the reachability on several fronts.
The survey also showed that there is a great demand for training courses with the following topics:
How to search for a fault
How to solve a malfunction efficiently
How to avoid failures in the future
We will draw up a training programme for this in the coming months so that we can start offering this training in 2023. If you are interested, please register now and we will inform you as soon as the training programme is ready.
