In january 2015 we can serve You with on-site gear measuring. We have bought an protable 6 axes portable gear measurement tool. With this tool we can check and measure the profiles on-site of unknown gears. With this tool we have a universal, highly sophisticated and fully comprehensive 3D coordinate measuring device.
For our customers, this has the advantage that we can measure components in the gearbox. Vulnerable parts need no longer to be transported with all the risks. Gearboxes should be opened just for an short lead-time. Existing heavy gears that should be replaced, doesn't need to be transported with high costs.
In November 2014 we decided to expand our premises, which will be ready in 2015. Due to the strong growth of recent years, the existing production areas have become too full. Also a more emphatic separation of the assembly of gearboxes and the machining operations has become necessary. In addition, the new production facilty will include:
a modern test stand
a dirty clean room
a painting room
Juli 2012 - In verband met de snel groeiende vraag van onze klanten, hebben wij in juli 2012 onze capaciteit uitgebreid met 2 draaibanken, met aangedreven gereedschappen.

Juli 2012 – To expand our machinery department we bought two new high accuracy machines, the Mori Seiki NLX 2500Y and the PUMA 400M.
Both machines are bought to provide an extra boost to the production of gears and other related parts.

Januari 2012 - In de Hoeksche Waard zijn veel technische bedrijven gevestigd die actief zijn in de apparatenbouw, installatietechniek, technisch onderhoud etc. Al deze bedrijven maken zich zorgen over de vraag hoe ze in de toekomst aan goed technisch personeel moeten komen. Dit terwijl er op de scholen van de Hoeksche Waard zoveel slimme kinderen rondlopen die een goede boterham zouden kunnen gaan verdienen bij deze technische bedrijven. Om nu te bereiken dat er binnen de Hoeksche Waard meer bekendheid ontstaat over de technische bedrijven en het werk dat zij bieden organiseren een aantal bedrijven deze actie.

If our customers do not have a regular supplier for total maintenance or for the on-site logistics, we can advise you with this.
