Quality as a basis for security

Flexible solutions

We meet our customers' requirements with a diversified range of products, a large selection of contract machining and fabrication options and our steel stockholding facilities. More than a century of experience and know-how go into GeisslerWista's production activities. We supply our steel products to customers in a diverse range of industries and sectors, from mechanical engineering, via automotive and the fastenings and spring industries, up to and including pipe production.

Delivering precision

We produce bright steel, mandrel bars, shaft bars and inductively hardened shafts, all of which feature precision manufacturing and uncompromising quality. Dedicated employees, a comprehensive quality management system and powerful machinery play a decisive role in ensuring this is the case. In addition to the dimensional accuracy and high quality of the steel products, our company is also renowned for strict adherence to deadlines and for flexibility.

Ultra-high quality assurance

We attach special importance to comprehensive quality assurance. Thoroughly trained employees ensure that the high quality standards we set are always met - from purchasing all the way through to shipment of the product. Precision measurement and inspection technology support our employees at all stages of the production process. Our quality management system is certified in conformity to DIN EN ISO 9001 and IATF 16949:2016. We also fully comply with the requirements of DIN EN ISO 14001 and 50001.

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.

Induction hardening

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.

End machining/CNC

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.
