Installation of the DEA Global Advantage 20.33.15 from Hexagon Metrology has helped the company to reach its goals.

Process Reliability and Quality Are The Maxims

With their own in-house developed grinding machines, for tool maker Paul Horn of Tübingen, in-process on the machine measuring is a key function to ensure precision and efficiency of automated operations. The m&h 41.00-PP production touch probes continuously resist persistent coolant showers and grinding dust abrasion.

Simply Reliable

Large turning/milling centres with a large number of machine components are the metier of Weingärtner Maschinenbau. Radio-wave touch probes from m&h check the accuracy of the machining operations.

Paving the Way to Repeatability and Accuracy

Every gear manufacturing company welcomes growth, but it comes with challenges. They include investing in new equipment to meet capacity, hiring skilled operators if necessary and even finding space to locate the machine.
