We have been producing at our site in Lychen for 60 years.
Key FiguresIn 2021 we have achieved the following values:
With sound expert knowledge, we manufacture form and position tolerances down to a hundredth of a millimeter. We can produce fits up to and including ISO tolerance field five.
For products with coatings or where the material properties have to be changed, as well as for manufacturing tasks in the single-digit micrometer range, we rely on a network of specialized cooperation partners.
Even if the demands on the product are high - a technical implementation is almost always possible.
