Production is divided into blade and plastic parts production and assembly. Blade production begins with the punching and hardening of the steel strip. The real secret of our production follows - the grinding of the Gothic Arch. After separating, the blades are cleaned and finished with a surface treatment. All plastic parts are produced by injection molding. In the assembly areas, all components meet again. All parts are fed to the plants and processed into a product.
The central control unit is the heart and soul of our factory. A connecting link between all departments, we manage the production and plan machine utilization. We create the necessary production documents, calculate the cost of new products and boost productivity. We are also responsible for supervising the logistics of our raw materials and finished products.
In our specialist department, we design production and supportive processes, develop new technologies and continuously improve our products. We are experts in special technologies, working with each individual process of our whole production.
