Man meets machine – a picture tour of the Dreizackwerk factory – 2.
The tool construction department – specialists in professional precision work
We’re continuing with our series of impressions from production in our Dreizackwerk factory. Today we’re back again with the toolmakers, looking over their shoulders as they work.
Without the toolmakers, the machines at WÜSTHOF wouldn’t even start working, since it is they who produce the tools for our industrial production plants. Whether cutters, dies for die casting or highly delicate instruments – they make everything to measure! Before the finished workpieces are put into service in the serial production, they are checked with measuring and test equipment. Once they have been released for production, they are installed in the machines by machine setters.
Next time, our impressions will continue from knife production to the coiling unit and forging, and from there to the hardening shop.
