An “all-around” choice for metalworking

Customer: Hörmann
Extracted material: Dust from metal and plastic processing
Industry: Metalworking
Vacuum cleaner: DS 1400 (DustEx)

Hörmann is known throughout Europe for its expertise in producing doors, gates and frames. The corporate group is Europe’s market leader in the sector, generating annual revenues of over 1 billion euros. Today, it is led by the third and fourth generation of the family that founded the company. Over 6,000 employees at 36 plants produce high-quality doors and gates for private and commercial real estate developers. Hörmann is headquartered in the Westphalian town of Steinhagen.


The company produces garage and industrial doors in its Steinhagen plant, just one of 17 it operates in Germany. Many of its systems generate dust as an unavoidable side effect of production. They were looking for a powerful industrial vacuum cleaner developed specifically for floor cleaning.


A Ruwac type DS 1400 vacuum cleaner is used in a warehouse (constructed in 2012) to regularly clean the large floor areas. Personnel use a wide floor suction nozzle to handle the cleaning. However, the DS 1400 is also used to clean the production systems, including the protective enclosure, and handles its work with noteworthy reliability. In addition, Hörmann treats its vacuum cleaner very well – an unusual bonus for an industrial vacuum cleaner: Once it's done its job, it is covered with a dust-resistant tarpaulin until the next use.
