Flexy Key from Lehmann

Uniqueness and diversity: Lock specialists Lehmann takes on both contrasts as a challenge. Under the „my key“ name, the company offers an individualised key generation that is geared exactly to the specific requirements of each and every customer.

The folding bar key, which straight away looks different to conventional models, provides the capability of integrating the client’s logo, or that of the end user, as a pad in the key cap. This means that labelling furniture in the normal way with the manufacturer’s logo can be dispensed with, avoiding cost-intensive work operations in production and reducing material input. By the same token, the individualised key gives end users the means to include their corporate design in furniture throughout their office or shop premises for a stylish, prestigious look. The key’s basic module is always the same and is not configured to customer requirements until the sales process.

To configure the key in line with the customer’s specific needs, it is still necessary to match the cylinder system to the individual application. The customer can choose from cylinder diameters of 16.5 mm or 18 mm, different cylinder lengths, various surfaces as sell as security lock cylinders and keys. This produces an individually configured system.

“Flexy Key“ from Lehmann provides customised product options following the principle of „Mass Customisation“. In customised mass production, which demands a high level of cooperation between sales, manufacturing and controlling, as well as the integration of client wishes, individualised output is created with the aid of standardised processes. Process know-how does not neglect the benefits of efficient mass production.
