WEINIG Conturex 124: The premium class all-rounder
The Conturex 124 is equipped on the portal on both sides and offers space for four processing units. Unit configurations such as main spindle, 5-shaft head, uni-spindle, the WEINIG multi-spindle drill head or saw units meet every requirement in the mid-performance segment.
By using two main spindles, two profiler processes can be carried out on the work piece at the same time in one cycle. The Conturex 124 also has the same range of options as its colleagues 114 to 226. Mechanization systems for up to 3 hours of unstaffed production, measuring systems for veneered work pieces, scanners and laser projectors are only a part of the range of options.
The “multi-product capability” opens a host of possibilities. The unit can also efficiently manufacture products that are not related to windows and doors. Such as hinged shutters, casings and furniture and frame parts.
Safety – sound insulation – dust protection
The appearance and design of the Conturex reveal its cutting-edge technology. The elaborate full paneling concept takes consistent account of the high performance. This yields an exemplary level of safety with improved protection from dust and noise.
The controlled extraction directly adjacent to the work piece and on the tool is unique in the market. The machine functions without expensive chip removal and only requires minimum care.

External tool magazine (optional)
The external tool magazine has up to 170 tools slots depending on the model range.
It all started with wedding dresses
Exclusive bridal fashion shop Très Chic in the Dutch town of Hengevelde and nearby window manufacturer Hebo Kozijnen B.V. were founded by the same man. Marinus Kuipers knew how to build a market. His son understood how technology can shape success.
Marinus Kuipers had a lucrative wedding attire business. In the construction boom of the early 1970s, he also began selling turnkey homes. This perfectly complemented his window production business, which quickly expanded. On his travels, the entrepreneur's businesses were never far from this thoughts. One tour in 1982 led him to a bridal fashion customer in Tauberbischofsheim. Marinus Kuipers took the opportunity to visit WEINIG. On the same day, he signed a contract for a window production line. His son Norbert was there. In 1988, Norbert took over the business from his father and specialized in window production.
Today, Hebo Kozijnen B.V. is one of the leading window manufacturers in Holland. The factory in Hengevelde contains five operational Conturex CNC centers. The customer's investment in the WEINIG system was the culmination of a long search for the perfect production technology. They tried a number of approaches, each time completely reconfiguring the company's production. However, the quality-conscious window manufacturer was never satisfied. “The lack of facility to firmly clamp the work piece was the problem,” says Norbert Kuipers.
At LIGNA in 2005, he discovered the WEINIG Conturex. The entrepreneur knew immediately: “That is how we need to work in future.” The new Conturex handled all processing completely autonomously and delivered perfect product quality.
Today, with a capacity of 5,000 running meters per week in wooden window production, Hebo would be unthinkable without the investment in the Conturex. Having the courage to risk everything on a new system at the time required a certain lack of inhibition. Norbert Kuipers had this. He reduced bridal fashion, housebuilding and window production to a common denominator: Invest in the right technology and enjoy good sales later.
