Keeping pace with your needs

The component parts that we produce using engineering plastics are having to meet increasingly tough demands. But Licharz is rising to this challenge. In today's newsletter, you can find out about the wide range of production methods we can offer with our machine pool. We continuously optimize our internal processes so that you, our customers, can benefit from excellent reliability. One great example of this is the way we are improving our internal material flow with the opening of a new central storage facility in Building 10. Just as important to us as cutting-edge technical capabilities are dedicated staff. One of those is Selina Wildemann, our first commercial apprentice. Find out more about her in this newsletter.

The right production method for every component part

Our engineering plastics are high-performance engineering materials for highly loaded machine parts. The components that we produce for our customers are becoming ever more complex. Our modern machinery pool features CNC milling machines for working ranges up to 3,000 x 1,000 mm, as well as the option of simultaneous 5-axis milling. It also offers the latest measuring processes, full CAD/CAM integration and optional thermal pre- and intermediate treatment for components of all sizes and complexities.

"That inspired us to add the commercial apprenticeship to our apprenticeship programs here at Licharz."
