Can you tell us a bit more about your department?
Alex: Our department is called CNC milling. We work
with CNC controlled machines, more specifically, milling machines with 3 and 5
axis. Some of them work highly automated, resulting in the fact that most machines operate around-the-clock. The night shifts are programmed by the
employees of the day shifts, so that the machines can work through the night.
Another part of our department specialises in additive manufacturing, using
SLM. The serial production of SLM manufacturing starts in January 2020.
What special know-how does your department
Alex: We have specialised knowledge in CNC milling
with a high degree of automation and in additive manufacturing.
What does success mean to you and your team?
Alex: Success means to us, that the quality of our milling
products is meeting the expectations of our customers and our own assembly
department – for a price that is comparable to other sources. Another sort of
success is the implementation of new technologies like SLM in production
