Contract manufacturing

As a contract manufacturer, we manufacture products on your behalf to the highest standards. With decades of experience and outstanding manufacturing expertise, we cover all mechanical process techniques. On request, detailed documentation of an order can be produced using specially-prepared measurement reports.

We have particular skills in both stone grinding and finishing. Here, we can provide the flexibility needed and produce all the usual surface profiles – up to freely-defined bespoke curves.

Roller cleaning & inspection

Tempered rollers are used in many applications in the converting industry. However, when material deposits such as limescale, oil, dirt, etc. reduce performance, quality suffers and could even stop production.
We are always thinking one step ahead for our customers. By using a specially-developed process, we offer professional support in cleaning tempered rollers and ensure your system is as efficient as possible.
