We lead the field in mechanical processing. Thanks to constant investment in replacements and extensions from leading technological suppliers, our machine and plant fleet is state-of-the-art. We work with 4-Axis and 5-Axis CNC machining centres, are flexible and swift when re-equipping and have access to a large inventory of standard and special tools. Compliance with set values in the µ-range is part of our daily routine.
Blasting optimises the surface of your component and essentially involves either cleaning or hardening blasting.
In the treatment of unfinished castings, or deburring, casting related sprues and burrs are removed. The component is restored to its original form and the risk of injury during handling is reduced.
The manual or fully automated straightening of your components is integrated into our overall process.
Using our knowledge of the entire production chain for your product, we create component-specific straightening concepts. Critical positions are measured and brought into the desired original form using the straightening system. With a straightening concept tailored specifically to the component, we ensure the frictionless completion of subsequent manufacturing processes.
With the aid of linking concepts, we can present a fully automated straightening process for large series, making the overall process more effective and efficient.
4-axis and 5-axis – up to 1800 mm component sizes
In 4-axis milling, alongside the X-, Y- and Z-axes, it is also possible to move around a rotational axis.
Several components, depending on their size, can be prepared on all four sides of the tombstones and processed part by part and side by side in the machine.
The use of 5-axis milling facilitates economical, pallet-based programming of high-precision, extremely complex parts that go beyond standard requirements.
If the part has to be machined on many sides/at different angles, your products will usually be processed on a 5-axis milling machine. Through high-precision simultaneous machining, we are able to achieve to a high degree of dimensional accuracy, as we avoid imprecisions caused by unclamping and reclamping the part.
We offer the installation or assembly of pre-fabricated parts or components to create a finished end product – from manual assembly to full automation.
Leakage testing (under water, differential pressure)
Leakage testing is a method to demonstrate the tightness of seals on a component.
At Herbst Zerspanungs- und Messtechnik GmbH, we employ various leakage test processes which can be integrated individually into the manufacturing process. We differentiate between tests on individual pieces underwater and differential pressure tests for higher quantities.
Washing / Cleaning
Component cleaning between individual work stages or before assembly is becoming more and more important. Herbst Zerspanungs- und Messtechnik GmbH employs various different washing systems and media. We will find the best-quality solution for your product.
For the visual testing of small drill holes and cavities, we can offer to perform an endoscopy on your component. Technical endoscopy is a modern, low-cost method for non-destructive testing. This technology enables the visual inspection of component areas that are not visible to the naked eye, generates assessable documentation and offers certainty.
We work with various measurement systems in quality control during production, depending on the task and customer wishes. The direct recording of measured values indicates process fluctuations and gives us direct feedback for the production process.
