With currently 17 employees, DELO is not one of the big players - but one of the big winners: In just four years, company founder Denis Lozusic managed to turn an outdated job shop into a successful, young and highly specialized mechanical engineering company. Right from the start, his declared goal was to set up a modern machine fleet with systems from TRUMPF: "We produce unique parts and individualized special machines. Our customers expect the best processing quality for a fair price. Reliable machines that work efficiently and productively are essential for us to keep up with the competition. And for me, these happen to be TRUMPF machines."
When Lozusic invested in a TruBend 7050 bending machine in 2020, he already had a laser system on his list. "We had an old machine in production, but it was no longer reliable and very difficult to operate," he explains. "A high level of experience in setting cutting parameters was necessary in order to achieve respectable cutting results." Despite the highly motivated and experienced employees, this slowed down productivity and had a negative effect on the cost calculation due to the large number of rejects.
He sees it as a stroke of luck that he had his dream laser system from TRUMPF in production much faster than expected: "I was offered the opportunity to integrate the TruLaser 1030 fiber into my production as a test customer, even though we produce in a relatively old facility with all its pitfalls. In addition, the time pressure was high during installation and commissioning, because we didn't have an alternative machine and had to quickly continue production."
