The organization’s commitment to the marketplace is reflected by the personalized support from Hartwig’s 70 plus factory-trained service engineers, 60 service vans stocked with over $825,000 in replacement parts, a dedicated Hartwig technical call center staffed with master technicians, and 24 application engineers for machine selection, turnkeys and manufacturing cell design.
The team at Hartwig sells and utilizes Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence technologies such as ROMER Absolute Arm and Leica Absolute Tracker portable systems, coordinate measurement machines (CMMs) including multisensor and optical systems, shop-floor CMMs, bridge CMMs, and PC-DMIS inspection software. Two specific areas of expertise at Hartwig are engineering and application engineering services. Whether it is a lack of resources, being pressed for time, or a customer that needs another pair of eyes, Hartwig’s engineering services experts have put hundreds of projects to work. Leveraging the Hartwig organization’s deep machine tool knowledge, Hartwig’s application engineering group can be an extension of an in-house engineering team, or a trusted source for resolving specific issues with an existing or newly-developed design. The Hartwig company’s expert application engineers help organizations select the proper machine tools, components, and quality inspection solutions to meet the unique manufacturing needs for each application. These services increase productivity, improve precision, minimize downtime, and improve quality.
