Toolmaking

Machining

High-precision processing is essential for effectively implementing external engineering requirements and designs. Ongoing investment in our machinery also ensures our competitiveness in the area of production services.

We are able to carry out three- and five-axis machining procedures, including five-axis simultaneous milling. Ongoing quality assurance throughout ensures an accurate fit and functioning components. Using offline programming systems (TEBIS and Mastercam), we can facilitate long, unmanned machining times. Our specialists are all trained by the company. Nearly all of our programmers are qualified machinists, which leads to significant improvements in quality.

We can process a whole host of materials, including steel, cast iron, cast steel, aluminium and non-ferrous metals.

Assembly

In an assembly area measuring more than 2,500 m2, over 50 toolmakers work in four teams over three shifts. We can handle crane loads of up to 50 tonnes. The toolmaking teams are supported by sheet-metal processing specialists, welders and tool electronics technicians. This combination of high assembly capacity and in-house mechatronics specialists allows us to precisely manufacture even the most complex tool projects in no time at all.

Testing

In our testing centre, our customers can try out their tool projects in realistic production line conditions. From 2014, the centre will boast a size of around 1,500 m2. Here, too, some 20 toolmakers will work in three shifts, supported by specialists in surface processing.

Tool installation

We support our customers all over the world with services for installing new tools. Our teams of experienced toolmakers have comprehensive experience of working with presses and provide on-site support in the production facilities.
