The Service Center Mechanical Workshop (SCMW) supports the research areas in the implementation of projects, the construction of test stands, and the production of test components. Our expertise ranges from construction consulting and the implementation of complex test benches to the manufacture of individual components and small series using a wide variety of manufacturing processes such as turning, milling, or grinding as well as eroding. A wide variety of materials can be machined. Our range of materials for machining extends from plastics to various steels and non-ferrous metals to titanium and nickel-based alloys, as well as hard fine machining.

The existing machinery has been continuously expanded and adapted in recent years, enabling us to achieve a high level of the complete machining of workpieces. Required external production steps and desired heat treatments are planned and commissioned by us within the framework of contract manufacturing.

By using modern CAD-CAM solutions as well as the planning software IK Office, we are able to execute manufacturing orders on time and with high quality.

Mr. C. May is at your disposal as contact person for the execution of production orders and for technical advice. Please send quotation requests to .
