Achenbach machines and installations are known for their reliability, speed and precision. Behind this is the claim to quality leadership which is followed up in detail at Achenbach. This explains the comparatively high production depth and great importance to inhouse production.

Vertical integration ensures maximum quality throughout the production process – from milling to drilling, deep hole drilling, shaping, keyseating, vertical and horizontal turning, grinding and deep hole honing. Achenbach also has the ability to treat pre-cut materials from its own flame cutting machine after welding directly inside its own annealing furnace for mechanical processing.

All manufactured parts for contract production as well as for own production are inspected for quality assurance using modern electronic measurement technology.

The range of production services comprises the following techniques:
