New commercial managing director ...
... at the WITELS-ALBERT GmbH in Berlin with effect from 01. 01. 2022.
The specialists for the development and manufacture of products for guiding, straightening and transporting long goods place the development and expansion of the company in the hands of Frank Weidenmüller (49, right in the picture).
He succeeds Horst Schneidereit (66, left in the picture), who has been a guarantor of economic success without exception for a good 40 years. As an economic engineer with expertise in commercial and technical aspects, he initially accompanied President Eckehard Albert for more than 15 years. With the entry of Marcus Paech (55), responsible for technology and sales, into the company 25 years ago, a team is formed that, favored by differences in personal characters, stands for a solid and progressive strategy and development. With the impulses of both managing directors, the WITELS-ALBERT GmbH expands its leading position in the segment.
At present, Horst Schneidereit is familiarizing his successor Frank Weidenmüller with all the issues that affect the company's finances and production in particular. Afterwards, he will say goodbye to retirement. The employees of the WITELS-ALBERT GmbH would like to thank Horst Schneidereit, combined with best wishes for the new phase of his life in stable health.
"Mr. Weidenmüller inspires with his incomparable CV, his analytical skills and actions adapted to them, competences in commercial and technical categories plus a level-headed and engaging management style that promises to stay the course even under challenging boundary conditions," says Marcus Paech, who as an enthusiastic motorcyclist shares his hobby with Frank Weidenmüller.
The chemistry, which is considered the basis of life, is right in Berlin! This also pleases the WAFIOS AG as the owner of the company, which continues to provide perfect conditions. In association with the WAFIOS AG, the new management of the WITELS-ALBERT GmbH as of 01. 07. 2022 strives for top performance in terms of products and services.

Digitally supported sales concept
The corona pandemic has been adversely affecting people's lives and work worldwide for months. Usual processes and procedures have changed, are no longer significant or no longer exist. New approaches are taken and creativity results in new routines.
Many industries, associations and companies evaluate the situation critically or with cautious optimism. Very few have reason to cheer. Every action is accompanied by the risk of endangering the health of people and also the successful economic development and existence are at stake.
The WITELS-ALBERT GmbH decided under these conditions to arrange the selling of products and services alternatively. The core of the new concept is a continuously digital contact to potential customers and customers by using modern means of communication. From 01. 09. 2020 WITELS-ALBERT GmbH offers the execution of online meetings and webinars. Enquiries and offers for this are communicated by telephone, eMail, advertising and on social platforms. The decision is valid without restrictions until the end of the pandemic, caused by the availability of vaccines or medication. By reducing mobility and physical contact between people, WITELS-ALBERT GmbH makes its contribution to the preservation of health.

Designed with flexibility and simplicity in mind, these straighteners offer customizable features such as roller position indicators PO, guards and guiding bushings. Start with a basic RT design and upgrade it when your production needs additional features for being more effective. You even can upgrade from a straightener without quick opening/closing mechanism to a straightener having this feature on board.

Meeting of the US and the European resellers
On November 2nd and 3rd, 2016 the US and the European resellers visited the headquarter of the WITELS-ALBERT GmbH in Berlin. In total 20 visitors were informed about the production machines, the technical possibilities of producing single product parts and the assembly of products during a guided company tour. Horst Schneidereit explained the vertical range of manufacture, the lean procedures in relation of processing orders and the raw material flow. The technology of straightening wire and detailed technical and commercial facts of the new products RT, RTS and SPR series were highlighted by Marcus Paech afterwards. He also gave an outlook in relation to the new products RA H PO and RA H PO SL series with the result of starting an active discussion about the guideline 2006/42/EC, valid for these partly completed machinery and the WITELS-ALBERT feeding units in case these products will be sold in the European Community.
As seen from the perspective of the organizer, all the resellers got a great training and were well prepared for giving the right advice in relation to straightening processes and recommending suitable products to potential customers and customers.

New mechanism for quick opening/closing
The WITELS-ALBERT GmbH introduces with the straighteners RTS 5 and RTS 7 series a new mechanism for the quick opening/closing of straightening units. Straighteners RTS series can be opened and closed quick and easy with a small amount of force only, as a cam-controlled excenter is used for the quick opening/closing. The complete new mechanism for opening and closing is very robust and reliable as it is protected against dust and dirt deposits formed from e. g. dust, drawing soap and coating chips.
New straighteners RT 5 and RT 7 series
The new straighteners RT and RTS series impress by an easy and clever design, by the sophisticated range of accessories and by the price. In case the boundary conditions on the production frontier have changed, the adaptation of already existing straighteners RT and RTS series can be managed easy and quickly. This allows a very dynamically configuration of straightening processes. As known, each straightener is equipped with straightening rolls in tow rows. However, two versions are offered, using a different number of straightening rolls dedicated to the side of the straightener with the roll adjustment screws. The picture introduces all available models.
Feeding unit NAH 160
The NAH 160 is designed for round steel wire with diameters between 15 mm and 40 mm. Depending on the upstream and downstream roll straightening process, the feed force needs to be high for these process materials. Rugged, durable parts have been designed into the NAH 160. Hydraulic clamping of the process materials and factory-installed, direct-drive hydraulic actuators for the shafts or feed rolls provide very high performance density. Despite the compact overall dimensions, the maximum opening of the feed throat on the drive unit is 60 mm. Process material with a strong curvature can be inserted into the open feed throat. The NAH 160 feeding unit can be installed horizontally or vertically using the mounting holes provided.
