DRILLING- AN ART IN ITSELF

Soft plastics set special requirements to the drilling tool

Generally speaking, twist drilling plastic material is possible and comparable to drilling metal materials. However, it is recommended to use special drills for plastics, since the thermal conductivity of plastic materials in general is worse than that of metals.

3D.PRINTING: ARCHITECTURAL MODEL

Making tangible models quickly and easily using FIL-A-GEHR PLA®

Models are used to visualise project ideas in three dimensions. Thanks to 3D printing methods, 3D models, which have already been developed at the PC, can easily and quickly be transformed into physical models. This helps to make architecture more tangible, to reveal unforeseen difficulties at an early stage or to reinforce the effect of a presentation.

NEW MACHINES
More annealing ovens put into service

In the course of the last couple of months we have received several additional annealing ovens to further improve our product quality and to respond to the increasing demand. The new ovens allow us to significantly reduce the time between production and annealing.

The trade show was a complete success and we were able to establish numerous new contacts. For the first time, we presented FIL-A-GEHR® on the Indian market and were more than surprised to see the great interest of the visitors.

EXPANSION OF PRODUCTION OF SEMI-FINISHED PRODUCTS
Construction of a new production hall for customised solutions

Part of our planning for the years ahead includes the building of a new production hall. In the future, we will use this additional 2,500 m² big hall for our profile and tube production. This will free up additional space which allows us to continue expanding the sheet and round rod production. Construction work has already begun. We hope to be able to use both halls for capacity expansions as of autumn 2018. At the same time, we will take this opportunity to renew part of our social rooms.

GEHR PE-UHMW®
Blue dyed semi-finished products – perfectly suited for food processing

Plastic materials have many advantages over other materials because of their properties and approvals and the fact that they are easy to machine. They have therefore successfully been established in the food-processing industry. Here, the materials must be compliant to the strict requirements of various national and international food authorities and regulations to find their way into applications as components in equipment and machinery used in the meat, dairy, grain and vegetable processing industry.
