We especially put emphasis to robust construction, highest accuracy and efficient production processes. Modern machinery and a quality management system according to EN ISO 9001 guaruantee high-quality products for our customers.

Many components are efficiently produced by our 4 welding robots.

A laser cutting system cuts metal sheet with an adapted fully automatic 120 to sheet metal stock yard. Alternatively a plasma cutting system is used.

A CNC- controlled machining centre and high-precision lathes guarantee best accuracy and optimal quality.

The hydraulic cylinders are also from our own production.

All components are blasted with steel shot in order to prepare the surface ideally for coating.

Furthermore, we use 2-component HS coating for a resistant surface and higher longevity of our products. Additionally since 2012 we have been working with a new painting plant with conveying system and forced drying at 50° Celsius. With this system we could increase time efficiency and quality of coating tremendously.

We only use high-quality raw materials and fine grain steel with high resistance in our production processes. Exact checking of incoming goods makes sure that the flow of production processes runs smoothly and causes economical efficient work results.

The development and construction of our products is done via 3D CAD work stations of the newest generation.

Recently, we have also used our visual 3D measurement system, on the one hand for checking our parts and on the other hand for measuring whole tractor units for our CAD system for the construction of our own coupling brackets.

Sales & distribution

The distribution of our products is exclusively by agricultural machinery dealers.

In Austria this is the private agricultural dealers or the 'Lagerhaus'.
