The Place Where Quality Is Born

The Place Where Quality Is Born

Manufacturing at WASSERMANN

 

Our own production floor has always been the basis at WASSERMANN. We believe that those who manufacture themselves think differently about design and develop a different view of the optimization potential of components. Furthermore, in-house production allows us to greatly reduce development times – and development also plays a fundamental role here at WASSERMANN. 

That's why we’re a bit proud of our manufacturing department, where highly trained teams produce components of outstanding quality on more than 3,000 square meters of space using state-of-the-art machining centers, precision grinding technology, and precise measuring and testing equipment. By the way, we are also perfectly prepared for heavy loads – we can safely handle parts and system weights of up to 10 tons.  

Automation in Our Own Production Facility

We use a great deal of our own technology in WASSERMANN’s in-house manufacturing operations. This is not only daily confirmation to us that our solutions are efficient and reliable, but also allows us to produce more efficiently.  

We have automated the following machines with WASSERMANN terminals: 

  • Hedelius BC 100/50: Existing system retrofitted with a TOOL-S tool terminal
  • DMG Mori DMU 125P: fully equipped with a TOOL-D tool terminal from WASSERMANN
  • Grob G350 and Grob G150: complete automation with TOOL-D tool magazine and WORK-S pallet magazine
  • Hyundai WIA LM 1800: automation with WORK-R robotic cell

    Turning and Turn-Milling

    Our eight turning and turn-milling centers process workpieces ranging from tiny to quite large. We can manufacture everything for you, from small parts with a diameter of 6 mm to large components with a diameter of up to 800 mm.

    With state-of-the-art automation and precision robot handling, we can produce parts quickly and with reproducible high quality. We guarantee tolerances between 0.01 and 0.03 mm.

    Milling and Hard Milling

    We have up to thirteen milling centers running on our production floor, some with 5-axis machining and with fully automated tool and pallet handling from WASSERMANN. 

    Feel free to use for you large components – the maximum workpiece dimensions are 5,000 x 3,000 mm. The tolerances range from 0.04 to 0.08 mm.

    Grinding

    WASSERMANN has seven units for surface, cylindrical, and cam grinding.

    This enables us to process surfaces with tolerances between 0.02 and 0.03 mm and achieve mean roughness depths (Rz) of up to 0.8. 

    Particularly in the production of cams, the grinding process tips the scales. Where the capabilities of hard milling are no longer sufficient, grinding achieves the required quality levels in the performance and service life of a cam.

    We have decades of experience and the necessary grinding technology to get the most out of cams.

    Measurement and Testing Technology

    We not only promise quality, but we also back it up on the basis of verifiable criteria. To do so, we equipped our production floor with state-of-the-art measuring and testing technology. We can comprehensively test parts and systems for quality on the basis of numerous measurement parameters and accurately record all of the results. We always provide you with transparent quality documentation. 

    We leverage our measurement and testing expertise not only for the components we manufacture, but also for your products upon request. Simply get in touch with us and let us know which tests you would like us to carry out.

    Straightening

    Calm hands, inner serenity, and a great deal of experience are essential in this specialized field of manufacturing. 

    If shapes deviate minimally from the plan due to stresses in the raw material, we make the necessary corrections – so that guide rails, frames, and racks achieve geometric perfection. Straightening is the only way to unlock the maximum performance potential of your machines for you and your customers.

    Straightening increases the wear resistance of your machine parts and thus the process quality. Straightening plays a particularly important role in high-speed processes because it ensures that rapidly rotating parts run smoothly.

    Assembly

    Our manufacturing team assembles mechanical and electromechanical assemblies on more than 3700 square meters. We have installed flexible and expandable project areas specifically for this purpose. For high quantities or series deliveries, we work according to the one-piece flow model.

    What distinguishes us from our competitors is that everyone on our team is skilled worker. After all, quality comes from qualifications. 

    We assemble in a clean environment according to VDA 19 and meet cleanliness level 1. We plan to begin operating our new Level 2 clean room in March 2023.

    Assembly at WASSERMANN is always a clean affair.

    Materials

    We work with anything that looks like metal. Our production team brings steel, stainless steels, aluminum, nonferrous metals, castings, and many other materials perfectly into shape. In addition, we give 3D-printed metal parts the final finish with precise post processing.  

    There is one particular material, however, that we deliberately do not machine: plastic. But in our large network, we know more than one company that can do this exceptionally well. 

    We just love the sound of metal. 

    Digitalization

    We know exactly when and where everything is going on in our production facilities, because state-of-the-art digitalization means that our production processes are fully transparent at all times. We have a real-time view of every machine and its availability. We perform downtime optimization and performance monitoring.

    This is why we can plan precisely, promise customers that we will meet deadlines with certainty, and manufacture sophisticated parts at attractive prices.
