Translating requirements accurately
Since the realization of complex customer requirements is one of the most important success factors in fluid technology special machine engineering, Lukas Tartler will be paying special attention to this aspect in his development work. “In order to realize customers’ wishes and requirements quickly and efficiently, I’m very keen to intensify – beyond the previous level – the overall cooperation with all other technical managers in the TARTLER GROUP, as well as an intensive interaction with our own research, development and demonstration center R.D.D.,” explains SOMATA’s new CTO. For the 30-year-old, close communication with customers and their design engineers also plays a key role in the successful realization of sophisticated system products and special machines. “Whether it’s a material manufacturer or a processor – it’s always a matter of precisely understanding the requirements and problems posed and then accurately translating them into technical solutions that have added value,” says Tartler. The two special systems in the SOMATA portfolio mentioned at the beginning of this article demonstrate how this added value can be achieved in concrete terms: while the TAVA F degassing station improves the filling processes of material manufacturers and optimizes the material utilization of users, the CAMA clay machine provides a boost in efficiency and quality in industrial model making.
Everything in close proximity
In any case, SOMATA’s new CTO benefits from an enormously important advantage in the practical implementation of his goals: the direct proximity to the other companies of the TARTLER GROUP. After all, apart from the recently founded foreign subsidiary TARTLER China (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., all the group’s companies are located in close proximity to each other and the TARTLER parent plant. “And since we’ve already secured further lots in the surrounding area, there’s actually nothing standing in the way of SOMATA’s further spatial and technical development in Michelstadt,” says Lukas Tartler.
