Precision tool making

Maximum tool making precision for innovative solutions and perfection in detail

Precision tool making is the connecting link between microtechnology processes and plastic technology Hahn-Schickard sets tool making milestones for the manufacturing of state-of-the-art and inexpensive micro systems. We offer innovative solutions for your product development in the areas of microelectronics and microintegration.

Precision tool making at Hahn-Schickard specializes in fast manufacturing of special parts, functional models, laboratory set-ups and micro injection molded tools for injection molding of thermoplastics and thermosets. In this regard, the focus is on small, filigree, and micro-structured parts or modules with the highest precision. The area of microintegration of optical, fluidic, and electrical components, benefits in particular from our precision tool making expertise. We also manufacture high-precision holders and components.

For design, we use state-of-the-art CAD technologies that allow data exchange with customers and partners in all major formats (e.g. STEP, IGES, STL, etc.). Computer-assisted creation of CAM data enables online transfer of the production data to the appropriate machines.

As a rule, tool cavities of the micro injection molding tools are manufactured out of tool steel using micromilling. In addition to a classically equipped mechanical workshop, our precision tool making organization also has access to high-precision HSC milling technologies. If optical modules with the utmost precision and surface quality are required, a 5-axis ultra-precision processing machine is used.
