Since the company was established in 1971, Hecht Electronic Ltd. has been setting new standards in quality assurance with each new initiative.
The success story continues
The second generation of this medium-sized family firm, Carina and Michael Hettich, have been managing the company since 2013. Over a period of more than four decades, Hecht Electronic Ltd. has developed into a High Tech company, which, because of its early specialisation in measurement technology, can offer a complete range of products from simple manual measuring tables to fully automated measuring systems.
Rigorous development work and the combination of top quality machine construction and innovative software solutions are giving Hecht access to more and more sophisticated markets, both at home and abroad. The edge which Hecht's specialist staff displays in the wealth of their knowledge enables complex tasks to be solved and customers' individual requirements to be met at the highest level. Through cooperation with research and educational establishments, theoretical approaches are incorporated into development, in order to meet new customer requirements.
Measuring and testing systems which optimise quality control on production lines are set to be introduced into the woodworking, furniture, kitchen, window and door construction industries, and also into laminate and parquet manufacture and the metal and plastics processing industries. The know-how in the area of positioning technology, which has accompanied Hecht from the beginning, comes into play in their length stops and sawing systems.
1971 – The beginnings of a success story
In the early seventies, Günter Hecht set up the company, focussing on the development and manufacture of industrial process measurement and control technology for sawmills. Further developments in measurement technology, which focused especially on customer-specific requirements in the woodworking, furniture and metal-working industries, led to the construction of the first manual DesQ-type measuring table in 1990.
The company's conversion to a limited company was followed by a move to a new company building with a larger production area in 1996. This marked the beginning of the development of optical measuring tables.
