Annual employee volleyball tournament

This year, the annual NILES employees」 vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment took place again, which is also finan­cially sup­por­ted by the com­pany. In the best of wea­ther, there was dili­gently spla­shing, dig­ging and blo­cking. We are plea­sed that the event attracts more and more employees every year and that the cohe­sion among col­leagues, which is espe­cially important in these times, is fur­ther streng­t­he­ned. A small selec­tion of pic­tures can be found here:

New parking lot and planning of a technology and demonstration center

Recently, our employees have been able to enjoy a new par­king area. The rea­son for this is the long-term plan­ned con­struc­tion of a tech­no­logy and demons­tra­tion cen­ter. For this pur­pose, the old par­king lot had to make way to create enough space for the future tech­no­logy cen­ter. With the future new buil­ding we are able to pre­sent our latest machine deve­lo­p­ments to our cus­to­mers in the con­text of an in-house exhi­bi­tion. Due to the cur­rent eco­no­mic situa­tion, the exe­cu­tion of this plan­ning of the tech­no­logy cen­ter has been post­po­ned for…

HEGENSCHEIDT MFD: Longer lifetime for bearing rings due hard rolling

News from our sis­ter HEGENSCHEIDT from Erkel­enz Rol­ler bea­rings guide shafts and axles, for example in vehi­cles, indus­trial plants or medi­cal tech­no­logy app­li­ca­ti­ons. Usually such bea­rings run per­ma­nently under high loads. Mate­rial fati­gue and lub­ri­ca­tion defect are the­re­fore the main cau­ses of com­po­nent fail­ure. High per­for­mance rol­ler bea­rings can be manu­fac­tu­red with cer­a­mic ele­ments com­bi­ned with bea­ring steel. For the pro­duc­tion of bea­ring rings, the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute for Pro­duc­tion Tech­no­logy IPT Aachen suc­cess­fully tes­ted hard rol­ling as a resource-saving alter­na­tive to exten­ding the con­ven­tio­nal pro­cess chain tog­e­ther with three pro­ject…
