Turning and milling

CNC milling in highest standards of precision – with the right turn in machining from design to the finished part.

toolcraft is also at the cutting edge of technology in this traditional area of component manufacturing.
Our machinery includes automated systems from leading manufacturers and testifies to our determination to produce precisely manufactured, high-quality parts.

Technology.

All the equipment we use for the complete machining of individual parts or assemblies is kept completely up to date and is state of the art. Our multi-axis technology and angle heads are just two examples of our innovative strength. We are capable of processing virtually any material. We have an in-house vacuum furnace for heat treatment. For example, in the area of high-temperature applications, we process nickel-based alloys – materials known for their high tensile and thermal-fatigue strength and corrosion resistance.

Application.

toolcraft focuses on high-end components, which demand a high degree of precision. The fact that we are so proficient at processing such a diverse range of materials makes us ideally placed for manufacturing parts for use in the aerospacesemiconductor, energy technology and motorsport industries.

Quality assurance.

We conduct our tactile quality assurance work using state-of-the-art machines from Zeiss and Hexagon. Our range of testing facilities are complemented by visual roughness testing, 3D scanning technology, non-destructive testing (NDT) and visual inspections.

01
Design

To ensure your components are manufactured quickly, precisely and cost-effectively, we tailor the production processes, including the programming and equipment used, to your specific requirements.

02
CNC machining

We offer a comprehensive range of turning, milling and rotary milling processes. Our use of multi-axis technology and angle heads is just one example of our innovative skills.

03
Erosion / flat and cylindrical grinding

We use electrical discharge machining (EDM) wire cutting, die sinking and flat and cylindrical grinding for the further processing of your components, enabling us to create delicate, complex and three-dimensional geometries.

04
Heat treament

To help us achieve the desired material properties, we apply stress-relief, stabilisation or solution heat treatment to the components. We have a vast array of convection furnaces and a vacuum furnace at our disposal.

05
Jointing

We undertake the assembly of components and, if necessary, join individual workpieces by electron beam welding, laser welding or vacuum soldering.

06
Surface finishing

We add functional and visual surface finishes to your components in accordance with your requirements using blasting, polishing and various coating techniques.

07
Qualitätssicherung

Wir führen eine zerstörungsfreie Oberflächenprüfung durch und qualifizieren Ihr fertiges Bauteil optisch und taktil.

08
Technical cleaning

Following several precleaning and interim cleaning processes during production, we give your components a final clean before delivery and package them in line with your wishes.
