Our production facilities
Optimised peeling machines
Our two hard-metal peeling machines feature patented high-precision guides and other high-performance equipment to assure maximum accuracy and efficiency - machine technology based on our decades of experience and innovation. We use this technology for reliable machining of non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, copper and bronze, and also high-tech materials like superconductors, nickel alloys and titanium, in addition to steel alloys. The dimension range covered is from 20 to 430 mm (round).
Two-roll straightening and polishing machines
The two straightening and polishing machines installed enable us to meet even the most demanding specifications for dimensional accuracy, surface quality, roundness and straightness. Optical measuring, straightness inspection and three-point measuring equipment assure optimum roundness and surface properties in the machined components. These facilities are designed for production of components in the 20 to 250 mm (round) dimension range.
State-of-the-art centreless grinding machines
GeisslerWista GmbH uses three state-of-the-art centreless grinding machines for a dimension range of 20-160 mm (diameter), with lengths extending up to 14 m. Our grinding and polishing machines, and also our regulating wheel-grinders, are equipped with downstream superfinishing equipment and are optimised for the production of semi-finished components for use in the manufacture of piston/connecting rods and for hard chromium plating.
Belt and circular saws
Our belt and circular saws are used for the production of fixed lengths with the utmost precision. We achieve sawn tolerances as tight as 1/10 mm with automatic feed, irrespective of the length and diameter of the workpiece. Sawing is followed by automatic end-deburring to ensure trouble-free further processing.
We use our induction hardening facilities to harden diameters of 20 to 180 mm to a surface/case hardness of 54 to 64 (Rockwell) and hardening depths of up to 14 mm (both are diameter and material dependent) on lengths of up to 12 metres.
Uncut or pre-cut bright steel shafts can be planed, chamfered and centred on our automatic end-machining tools. We can machine dimensions from 20.0 to 80 mm (round). Inner and outer diameters from 60 to 350 mm are machined on our high-tech CNC machines precisely to the customer's drawing specifications on workpiece lengths of up to 24 metres.
