Manufacturing technology

Our range covers the entire spectrum of high-precision shaft manufacture, with the processing stages representing a high added value for us and our customers.

The manufacture of camshafts is a complicated procedure involving many different processes requiring our specialised know how:

Cutting
in our highly modern cutting plant – also undertaking contract processing

Cutting to length and centering
on vertical machining centers and double-sided cropping machines

Turning
from 3 to 9 axes

Milling
of complex geometrical structures and cam shapes

Deep-hole drilling
to save on weight or as an oil duct for lubrication

Tempering
modern induction tempering in our own tempering shops and,
in cooperation with our long-term partners,

plasma nitriding
gas nitriding
salt bath nitriding
austempering
plasma-vacuum-tempering
case hardening

Cylindrical/lobe grinding
all profiles and contours including interior radii

Band-/stone finishing
up to a roughness of Ra 0.05 in serial production

Measuring
tactile and optical methods of measurement,
non-destructive testing, e.g. Stresstech methods,
ultrasonic testing,
material testing

Assembly
- of add-on components,   e.g. trigger wheels
- in-house for shafts of up to 3 m
