Information on staircase construction

Technical articles & user reports

Part of the interior design

Here, no staircase is like the other

„If we build two iden­ti­cal stair­cas­es it is only because we need two of a kind in the same build­ing“. Apart from spa­cious stor­age areas, their shop floor is above all char­ac­terised by tech­ni­cal­ly sophis­ti­cat­ed machin­ery. There you find two 5‑axes machin­ing cen­tres, each more than six metres in length, of VISION type with gantry dri­ve, which have been sup­plied by the machine builder Reichenbacher.

Innovativeness as the driving force

Recommended by experts

If some­one in Switzer­land wants to have an extra­or­di­nary stair­case, he will inevitably come across the cre­ative minds of Treppenbau.ch AG. Their stair­case con­struc­tions start at a point, where oth­ers leave off because it gets too com­pli­cat­ed. „The inno­v­a­tive gene of our employ­ees when deal­ing with CNC-tech­nol­o­gy dis­tin­guish­es us from our competitors.“

attractive prospects

searching and finding trends

With about 15,000 pre­fab hous­es, Gussek Haus is among the most renowned man­u­fac­tur­ers in Ger­many. A VISION-II-ST Sprint has been in use since 2013, the intel­li­gent con­fig­u­ra­tion of which dras­ti­cal­ly reduces tool chang­ing times and has thus made the line the core of stair­case manufacturing.

Where craftsmanship meets innovation

The func­tion of a stair­case is a prac­ti­cal and at the same time a decorative
one. Where cre­ativ­i­ty is con­cerned, the lim­its of indi­vid­u­al­ism seem to be reached – not so in the opin­ion of Dutch­man Frans Son­ne­mans. His company’s spe­cial­ty are stair­cas­es made from extrav­a­gant mate­ri­als and vari­a­tions regard­ing the type, style and design of a staircase.

Staircases with a personal touch

Elegant simplicity or rustic charm

„The crafts­man­ship of a man­u­fac­to­ry com­bined with the effi­cien­cy of mod­ern mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing and com­put­er tech­nol­o­gy,” this is how Mey­er & Grave sees itself. The pre­mi­um stair­cas­es from sol­id wood are always indi­vid­u­al­ly cus­tomised to the clients‘ wish­es and require­ments. As top qual­i­ty is of impor­tance for them, the use of mod­ern machin­ery is a must.

A perfect fit

Fast with first-class processing quality

Ammann stair­case man­u­fac­to­ry had bought one of our CNC-machin­ing cen­tres; but its route into the pro­duc­tion facil­i­ties was barred by a stor­age build­ing. How to resolve this sit­u­a­tion? Sev­en hours lat­er – a truck-mount­ed crane of 150 met­ric tons with 50 met­ric tons of bal­last to pro­vide a coun­ter­bal­ance, and the unit’s being lift­ed through the air for 22 metres – the machine had arrived in its future position. 

Stunning staircases

Innovation meets tradtion

Wood pro­cess­ing has a long tra­di­tion in the dense­ly wood­ed Erzge­birge and the peo­ple there have per­fect­ed their work­man­ship for gen­er­a­tions. Dietel Trep­pen­bau feel a strong com­mit­ment to this tra­di­tion, too. Many years ago, the com­pa­ny adopt­ed our CNC-pro­cess­ing tech­nol­o­gy, thus updat­ing pro­duc­tion for the future.

Newel post processing centre PBZ 6S-7000

Highly efficient 6‑sided machining with loading and unloading system

This line rev­o­lu­tionis­es the cut­ting and com­plete pro­cess­ing of large wood­en posts/beams up to 7,000 mm in length. It is far-sight­ed to man­u­fac­ture newel posts sep­a­rate­ly from oth­er stair­case com­po­nents, espe­cial­ly so in indus­tri­al stair­case pro­duc­tion. The PBZ 6S-7000 saves valu­able pro­duc­tion time on oth­er machines and thus reduces costs.

Passion für Treppenunikate

Handwerkskunst trifft auf moderne 5‑Achs-Technologie

Dri­ven by the pas­sion to cre­ate incom­pa­ra­ble one-offs, Diehl has become a sym­bol for exclu­sive stair con­struc­tions. It can be an excit­ing chal­lenge when one CNC machine is to be replaced by anoth­er. How­ev­er, the elec­tri­cal pow­er of the new one could have caused parts of Frank­furt to go dark for a short time.

Fully automated staircase plant

Nordic individualists

Juhan Viise, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of the Aru Grupp, set him­self the goal in 2021 of devel­op­ing his com­pa­ny into the most mod­ern, ful­ly auto­mat­ed stair­case plant in the whole of Europe over the next few years. Cur­rent­ly, they oper­ate a log house and a glu­lam com­po­nent plant but also pro­duce high-qual­i­ty prod­ucts from sol­id wood, which they export on a glob­al scale.

Acquisition of a CNC opens up a new world

Huge X Length, Tiny Hall

With great effort, Ste­fan Nos and his son Benedikt used to make all kinds of stairs with exot­ic machines. Now they have drawn a line and banned not only the stringer milling machine for milling steps, but also oth­er machines from the workshop.

Staircase machining with five axes

Holz-Handwerk Special

5‑axis machin­ing cen­ters are also becom­ing increas­ing­ly pop­u­lar in the hand­craft sec­tor. Accord­ing­ly, Reichen­bach­er is focus­ing its pres­ence at the Holz-Handw­erk on this tech­nol­o­gy. The focus will be on a high-end “Artis X6 Sprint” machine spe­cial­ly equipped for stair­case construction.

Staircases for colleagues

At Wortmann, partnership is the name of the game

Wort­mann Mas­sivholztrep­pen GmbH is a flex­i­ble sup­pli­er for car­pen­ters and join­ers. The Sauer­land-based com­pa­ny relies on high-per­for­mance CNC tech­nol­o­gy and pro­vides its part­ners with com­pre­hen­sive sup­port from plan­ning to assem­bly. The five-axis machin­ing cen­ter Reichen­bach­er “Vision” has been in use since 2013.

Redistributing the work

Staircase machine LIGNA 2011

A 5‑axis main spin­dle and three addi­tion­al milling units on the same sup­port — this dis­trib­utes the work in stair­case con­struc­tion to specif­i­cal­ly designed units, reduces tool change times and saves a total of 20 per­cent time. Like the gim­bal-mount­ed 5‑axis main spin­dle, the units are mount­ed on the Y‑support.

Solving big tasks intuitively

Software and machine as a unit

Com­pa­nies in indus­try and trade are fac­ing a major chal­lenge in terms of automa­tion. After all, machines alone are not enough — in order to guar­an­tee con­sis­tent­ly high prod­uct qual­i­ty, intel­li­gent soft­ware must be used so that employ­ees can oper­ate machines and car­ry out pro­gram­ming after a short train­ing period.
