Mechanical processing at the Silbitz Group
We as Silbitz Group GmbH are a traditional and innovative foundry company, which is able to produce ready-to-assemble cast components. We offer our customers consulting services in the area of construction, casting design and mechanical processing from a single source, without unnecessary loss of information and without unnecessary interfaces. In the meantime, a large number of our castings are delivered to our customers in single, small and medium series, pre-finished or finished. Our castings receive pre-processing from our mechanical processing department located in Silbitz, Germany. The pre-processing portfolio includes milling, drilling and turning the castings to customer specifications. Individual technical advice and support are part of our customer service.
Your benefits at a glance
Due to the extensive machinery for mechanical processing and the production plants Silbitz Guss GmbH and Silbitz Group Stassfurt AWS GmbH, customer and production-related changes in the upstream and downstream processes are promptly integrated technologically and technically. Rapid feedback from the field of mechanical processing to the foundry's production technology also helps to incorporate optimizations in the casting production process chain. For you as our customer, this means following benefits:
- Close cooperation and reduction of interfaces between casting suppliers and mechanical processing operators
- Time and cost reduction for administration and logistics
- Shorter reaction and delivery times
- Greatest flexibility
- High optimization potential
- Modern mechanical processing machinery
- Qualified staff
CNC-controlled machines and machining centers
The Silbitz Group continuously modernizes and invests into machinery to improve the productivity and competitiveness of the mechanical processing. With the acquisition of the Silbitz Group Staßfurt AWS GmbH as a complete processor, we were able to increase the vertical range of production and the flexibility significantly.
The machine park, at the locations in Silbitz and Stassfurt in Germany, comprises more than 40 CNC-controlled machine tools. The mechanical processing centres of the Silbitz Group have modern turning and milling machines of well-known manufacturers, e.g. Blansko, Chiron, FPT, Fritz Werner, Gidding & Lewis, Heckert, Heller, Heid, Heyligenstaedt, Mazak, Map, Niles, Simmons, Pegard and Schiess. The Silbitz Group is therefore in a position to represent a wide range of turning and milling work in the field of casting machining. The possibilities for mechanical processing are manifold. The processing locations of the Silbitz Group manufacture on state-of-the-art high-quality CNC machine tools. The application of modern machining technologies ensures that the mechanical machining of the castings is carried out economically and according to customer specifications. Through targeted investments and technology development within the internal CIP team (continuous improvement process), innovative mechanical processing strategies are developed and implemented in existing production structures.
The experience, the commitment and the flexibility of the employees of the Silbitz Group contribute significantly to our overall company's success and in mechanical processing. In addition to the periodical training courses in the modern CNC machining centres and further training of our staff, in 2016 the Silbitz Group set up its own training center, in which the profession of cutting machine operator is trained. The practical vocational training at the location prepares the apprentices and the employees for company-specific tasks and the development of production-related solutions at a very early stage. The Silbitz Group sees the investment in solid skilled workers as the foundation for a successful future and corporate development.
Additional quality services to mechanical processing
In addition to the mechanical processing, the customer-specific surface treatment can be carried out by us for pre-finished and finished parts. On the washed and cleaned surfaces, we apply the appropriate primer and paint according to customer requirements. Our customers receive high-quality pre-machined and ready-to-install products.
Benefit from our know-how as a complete supplier of ready-to-install castings and entrust your responsibility to the Silbitz Group for deliveries on time and in the required quality. Our wide-ranging machine park at the locations in Stassfurt and Silbitz is also available for contract mechanical processing apart from the machining of our self-made castings. We are a competent partner for mechanical processing tasks of any kind and certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001. The Silbitz Group works together with long-standing and competent partners in the field of mechanical processing in order to be able to realize special machining tasks. Based on our know-how in the field of mechanical processing, the Silbitz Group takes over the technical and logistical support for our customers and, as part of our supplier development, seeks the right partner for the respective processing task.
