Process development

Over all the years ELHA developed further from metal cutting machine tool manufacturer for drilling and special purpose machinery to a solution provider for complete turnkey solutions including all required engineering. Your workpiece is always our starting point. After comprehensively analysis of the requirements we develop and realize the optimal, tailored manufacturing solution based on proven machining concepts or by tailored, specific concepts. Therefore we cover a wide range of products from engineering services e.g. process devlopment, machine tool/fixture design up to the manufacturing of machines, fixtures and complete turnkey solutions including automation. In addition we are capable to provide all typical services around such complete solutions starting from support for production after final acceptance up to comprehensive aftersales services. Therefore ELHA is your competent, reliable partner for sophisticated process solutions with highest quality and outstanding performance.
