The full spectrum of hydraulics
From the grippers at the in-feed deck, to the wheel loaders, excavators, forklifts, and the saw line -- hydraulics are everywhere, and so is the connecting equipment from HANSA‑FLEX. A total of 30 high-performance hydraulic power units provide the necessary oil pressure for the various machines. The Fulda branch supplies Pfeifer’s Lauterbach facility with hose lines, couplings, threaded connectors, teflon and industrial hoses, as well as special fittings. To ensure rapid access to replacement parts, Pfeifer’s maintenance department has its own warehouse with HANSA‑FLEX parts which is restocked weekly. “We can meet most of our needs directly from the warehouse. If we need a replacement part in a hurry and it’s not in the warehouse, the HANSA‑FLEX office is very close by. Either they quickly deliver the part or we go pick it up ourselves,” says Urban. And because every hose line is marked with an X-CODE, there are never any mix-ups with orders. “X-CODE is the simplest system. We just read the code, phone it in, and when we show up at the office the part we need is there waiting to be picked up,” says the head of mechanical maintenance.
