CEDIMA Diamond tools

Everyone is talking about broadband expansion these days and fiber optic cables have to be laid for this. What does this have to do with diamond tools, you ask? The company CEDIMA offers a special joint cutter for asphalt and concrete surfaces, with which gentle removal is possible. We will be showing you this and other innovations at the CEDIMA stand at bauma 2016.

Floor saws for broadband expansion

Cedima is a leading name in the diamond tool sector, the company is active worldwide and not only on the road to success with its floor saws. And that is precisely the motto under which they are presenting their new products here at Bauma: Road to success. Klas Bömecke: Mr. Wanke, Cedima was taken over by new shareholders three years ago, including yourself, how do you see the development? Torsten Wanke: Very positive overall. We had to modernize and restructure, but have now achieved a very stable overall situation and allowed us to invest in research and development again, in new machines and new technology.

Klas Bömecke: You also invest a little in creativity, because you have a very elaborate launch concept here, don't you? Torsten Wanke: Yes, we chose that very deliberately. It's clear that it's a bit polarizing when you take such a path and, if you look around a bit here, it's very conspicuous. But a trade fair is simply there to attract attention and that's why we deliberately chose this path. Klas Bömecke: Road to success was a deliberate choice? There's a strategy behind it, isn't there? Torsten Wanke: Yes, in general we are big fans of the leitmotif, that's actually what we do in most cases. It offers a lot of opportunities for creative marketing around such a leitmotif or motto. But it also links our core business very nicely, namely the road and the success that we have together with our customers. Klas Bömecke: I think you're quite happy with how business is going at the moment, but where do you see the potential for the future? Torsten Wanke: Um. Our focus for the future is to concentrate on our core competencies, which means that we have invested heavily in research and development, which can also be seen here at the stand with the new machines. On the other hand, we also want to address a large part of our customers or an important part of our customers, namely the trade sector with new creative, innovative tools that we are also presenting here. Klas Bömecke: Well, thank you very much. I'll have a look at your machines, okay? Torsten Wanke: Gladly Klas Bömecke switches to the dry cutting machines.

Dry cutting machine for connection joints and expansion joints

Klas Bömecke: Mr. Sandt, this CF-2020 TR is very prominent on your stand! I think it's also a new development. What kind of machine is it? Holger Sandt: Yes, this machine was specially developed for cutting connection joints and expansion joints. Klas Bömecke: And what special features does it have? Holger Sandt: The advantage of this machine is that you don't need cooling water for cutting. Klas Bömecke: So, the others all work in wet areas?

Holger Sandt: Absolutely. The advantage of this machine is that the cutting material is collected directly by the extraction system and there is no cutting sludge, which is very time-consuming to extract and dispose of. Klas Bömecke: So the dust goes through this pipe into an extra container? Holger Sandt: Quite correct and you can work here completely without cooling water and that is the huge advantage of this machine. Klas Bömecke: Ok, what prompted you to develop a dry cutting machine like this? I mean, you've been successful on the market with wet cutting machines. Holger Sandt: Yes, that's right. Several service providers in the many tenders and also the client often demand that cutting tasks up to a depth of 100 millimetres be carried out using the dry cutting method. And in order to meet these requirements, we developed this machine in close cooperation with these service providers. Klas Bömecke: Very interesting. Okay. Let's take a look then. Klas Bömecke and Holger Sandt go to a road construction machine.

CF-5030 MT joint cutter for laying fiber optic cables

Klas Bömecke: It's a bit like the childhood dream of driving an excavator! CF-5030 MT What kind of machine is that? Holger Sandt: Yes, the CF-5030 is a floor cutter and this machine is mainly used in road construction for cutting asphalt and concrete surfaces. The CF-5030 - as it stands here - is equipped with the latest diesel engine technology and modern control technology. Furthermore, a steering system like the one we see here and a ride-on step, on which you are already sitting, allow very precise cutting. Klas Bömecke: And this addition MT, Micro Trenching, what does that mean? Holger Sandt: Micro trenching - this describes the process for laying pipes for fiber optic cables. Using cutting technology, narrow slits are made in the asphalt surface and with the CF-5030 MT we enable the customer to make cuts with a width of 30 millimetres and a depth of 300 millimetres. Micro trenching technology is a method for laying fiber optic cables in roads and paths and offers a possibility for cost-efficient and fast broadband expansion. Klas Bömecke: So as not to have to tear up everything? Holger Sandt: Yes, of course. Klas Bömecke: Why this development right now? Holger Sandt: This technology has been popular in Scandinavia for a long time. But now the German market is also beginning to open up to this effective process and the major communications providers are showing very strong interest. Klas Bömecke: So you now have a market for this machine? Holger Sandt: Yes (smiles) - now we have a market for this machine and can market it nicely. Klas Bömecke: Great, that's how it should be. I saw something else back there. I'd like to ask a question about that too. Holger Sandt: Okay. Klas Bömecke and Holger Sandt go to the diamond tools. Klas Bömecke: Mr. Sandt, your diamond cutting tools look very special! What were you thinking?

Holger Sandt: Yes, as our products are designed for both retailers and service providers, design plays an important role alongside quality. In addition to the visual appearance, our leitmotif also offers excellent possibilities for naming. Klas Bömecke: Blue 66, BlackJack, Diabolik, very cool, so there's a lot of creativity behind it in the company. Holger Sandt: Thank you very much. That's our guiding principle: Road to success. That of course offers all these different possibilities. Klas Bömecke: But what distinguishes these tools apart from their unusual design?

Holger Sandt: Yes, these products expand and optimize our already large product portfolio and impress with their performance data. Here, special emphasis was placed on product improvement at attractive prices in order to serve our professional customers even better. Klas Bömecke: Yes, and I can not only use them in your floor saws, they also work for other devices. Holger Sandt: Other devices, for an angle grinder, for a table saw, for many many other devices we can also use these tools, yes. Klas Bömecke: I would think about it because a fancy disk like that in my Flex might not look bad either. Holger Sandt: Please, you are welcome to sell them to us and purchase them from dealers. No problem. Klas Bömecke: All right. Mr. Sandt, thank you, have a nice trade fair!
