RECERTIFICATION EN9100:2018 & ISO9001:2015

On 04/12/2019 we renewed the EN9100 & ISO9001 certificate for the 3rd time in a row. Thanks to a very successful audit in accordance with the EN9104-001: 2013 standard carried out by Bureau Veritas and the implementation of a progressive quality system we can continue to produce parts directly for the aerospace. THE SKY IS NOT THE LIMIT…

NEW MACHINING CENTER HERMLE C42U

Since November the new high-performance-line machining center C42 U with HS-Flex automation and 192 additional tools warehouse has been taken into use. A strong performing multitasking center with technology for all industries (automotive medical maintenance aerospace ...). Thanks to the optimum travel paths adapted to the workpiece size the machine is consistently designed for 5-axis applications with the highest accuracy and the smallest tolerances. Like a true multitasking center the Hermle C42 leaves no wishes unfulfilled when it comes to automation. This starts with the compact HS-FLEX (Flexible Handling System) which can exchange pallets of various sizes as the main advantage followed by the electrical heat expansion compensation the tool break control and measurement the optimized chip management and the multiple cooling lubricant devices. The Heidenhain control contains a large function diversity such as tools for the accuracy increase of turning & pivoting operations the casing transformation and the transparent tool management. In summary we have this new multitasking center available for all your products with the highest demands. AS RELIABLE AS A GOAL KEEPER ON ITS GOAL LINE AND AS EXACTLY AS A GOLF Player IN PUTTING.

THE NEW CLIMATED FINAL CONTROL AREA

In 2019 we made optimal use of the new FINAL CONTROL AREA. This new room of 80m² (The old final control area was 36m²) is a specially insulated room where products are checked for their dimensions. The room contains a surface plate 3D- & optical measuring instruments (CMM profile projector etc.). These digital measurement setups can accurately measure products up to a thousandths of millimeters (a micron). To measure these accurate dimensions or fits as precisely as possible we take the temperature in the room into account. This is because materials expand at high temperatures in contrast to shrinking at low temperatures. Thanks to the climate control the final control area is kept at a constant temperature of 20 °. Our quality manager and measuring technician work here and measure the sizes of products with various measuring instruments according to established procedures and reference points. Data is always stated in our measurement reports and supplied to customers. MEASURING PRECISION IS OUR GOAL.

COMPANY VISIT SENIORS RIJKEL

On Thursday 21/11/2019 we got a visit from the seniors of Rijkel. This association aims to promote the social and cultural life of seniors. The seniors were welcomed by manager Evi Nelissen and former external auditor André Vanacken. As a former employee André who is a member of this organization provided the organization with a full tour of the company. YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO LEARN.

Installation of a new EDM machine: Sodick ALC 600 G & ALC 800 G

Since the start of 2018 Fijn Mekaniek Nelissen has been in possession of a new EDM machine namely: Sodick ALC 600 G & ALC 800 G. These machines were purchased for the following reasons:

- A profit in cutting speeds.

- The highest accuracy.

- In less cuts to the final result.

- Smartcontrol. (steering)

- The spark gap can be controlled up to 500x / second through the interaction between the Smart generator the Smart controller and the Smart-Line drive.

The new EDM machines are installed and ready to give customers the best possible service.

Expansion: production hall (+ 1000m²) & warehouse (+ 600m²)

In 2017 Fijn Mekaniek Nelissen realized an expansion of the production hall and the warehouse. In addition to the existing production hall an identical production hall was built which corresponds to an extension of 1000m².

New measuring device Mahrshaft SCOPE Plus 120-750

The Mahrshaft SCOPE Plus is a flexible 100% automatic measuring device. The optical measurement is performed during a rotational movement of the workpiece to be measured. The measuring machine also comes with the option to measure tactile (with a probe). For all measured workpieces a measurement report will be drawn up which will be made available at the customer's request. The measurements are carried out fully automatically and are not influenced by the operator of the machine. The Mahrshaft SCOPE Plus offers the possibility to measure details that can not be measured in a different way.

Tolerance fields are adjustable / concentricity / bevels / angle determination in conical pieces / thread metering.

Length = 750 mm - Diameter = 120mm

New machines

In the first quarter of 2015 we bought some new machines. So there were four older machines from our workshop removed and sold. As a result we had created enough space to integrate brand new high-quality machines in our workshop.

In January there were already four (4) new Mazak machines purchased. These machines are already in place and are now producing more accurate and faster parts. With these more accurate and faster machines we can meet the expectations of our customers. 

These machines are a lot faster that way we improve our flexibility and our delivery times.

Temporary work in shifts

From the month of February on we started working in a two-shift system. Our business model is still based on the work of a one day shift-system.

In the context of flexibility we want to work in 2 shifts that way we can be more flexible for urgent deliveries. So you see flexibility is very important in this context.

that way we want to provide the best service for our customers.

New Website

Visitors of our webpage probably noticed the changes. We want to point out more our strengths on the website.

The 3 most important pillars of this company will be presented on the new website: FLEXIBILITY QUALITY and SERVICE.

New employees

Since the beginning of 2015 we hired ten (10) new employees. These employees are young people who left school last year or the previous year. We will give them a proper training and this will ensure the future of our company.

At Fijn Mekaniek Nelissen we invest in our own future staff. We train them to become the craftsmen who will be your future partner.

Alignment of machines with laser equipment

At Fijn Mekaniek Nelissen we did on our existing CNC machines a laser alignment. We’re convinced that this investment in our machines is beneficial for our customers. 

Leveling of the machine under laser control increases the repeatability of the machines. A better repeatability ensures a better accuracy of the finished products. Similar to the accuracy of new machines.

The better positioning accuracy will improve the precision and therefore also the quality of the finished products. This investment gives you as a customer of Fijn Mekaniek Nelissen certainly an advantage.
