Double face grinding

Double face grinding is a through-feed grinding process. The workpiece is passed between two grinding discs using a transporter. Low throughput times are achieved with high precision, plane parallelism and excellent surface quality. nosta processes all common materials, from standard steel types to ceramics and plastics
Close

Turning

Turning and milling makes it possible to combine turned parts and milled parts precisely, while meeting the highest requirements for shape and position tolerances. Linking with CAM systems ensures efficient production with high quality standards. The machinery, consisting of CNC lathes, multi-spindle systems with automatic bar loaders and turning/milling centres, supports prototype production – from pre-series to series production.
Close

Milling

nosta uses state-of-the-art machinery consisting of robotic and handling systems assisted five-axis simultaneous milling machines as well as four- and three-axis milling centres. Machinery extensions in the form of product-specific supply systems or special clamping devices, designed by nosta’s in-house mechanical engineering department, complete the range of products. This enables us to support the entire product life cycle. Rotary transfer milling machines with up to 22 axes have a special role in CNC machining. Six machining spindles in use at the same time and automated loading and unloading make it possible to machine complex components with short throughput cycles. These systems are supported by CAD-CAM and tool management systems.

Wire erosion cutting EDM

Wire erosion cutting EDM is a high-precision cutting process for electrically conductive materials that works on the principle of spark erosion. The accuracy of the process is based on the fact that the spark always jumps at the point where the distance between the workpiece and the wire is shortest. This process makes it possible to realise small cutting widths in combination with complex contours and minimal radiuses. The highest demands in terms of dimensional and shape accuracy can thus be implemented.
Close

Flat and profile grinding

Grinding is used for fine and finish machining of workpieces in flat or profile grinding processes with a grinding disc contour geometrically adapted to the component. On our high-quality machines, the workpieces are clamped using a magnetic clamping plate, a vacuum table or using mechanical clamping systems as well as zero-point clamping systems. Depending on the components to be machined, pendulum grinding, plunge pendulum grinding or creep feed grinding is used. High-speed grinding nosta (HSGN) machines have a special role at nosta. These machines achieve up to 220 metres per second circumferential speed and very high Qw (time clamping volumes).

Automated manufacturing

Automated manufacturing using automation machinery production with motion controllers to control up to 28 axes of motion stands for maximum efficiency in manufacturing. This machinery concept, which is usually oriented to the workpiece/component, is designed for high quantities with a very high repeat accuracy. nosta uses rotary indexing machines as well as linear machines in combined processes such as turning, milling, drilling, notching, resistance welding and marking. High-volume components are manufactured on PLC/CNC-controlled linear and rotary indexing machines. Furthermore, the company’s own mechanical engineering service enables implementation of individual automation machinery which is optimally designed for the workpiece to be processed – independent of the solutions available on the free market.

Labelling in accordance with VDA/Customer specification

  • Inkjet marking process
  • Axle laser marking, QR code, data matrix code, consecutive serial number, etc. in a continuous process, individually and also in blister packs – depending on component quantity and size
  • Stamping of components
  • Labelling
  • Custom solutions on request
Close

Laser cutting

Laser cutting is a type of thermal separation process using a a beam of concentrated light energy to cut material. The available 4000watt CO2laser enables high cutting speeds with optimum material utilisation. The resulting short machining time, in combination with other manufacturing processes such as milling, turning, grinding, etc., makes it possible that products are manufactured in short time and cost efficiently.
Close

Sawing

nosta uses fast and precise band, mitre and circular saws for both individual and volume production. This process is supported by automatic loading and unloading equipment using bar loaders and robots. Our technologies enable us to use high-performance cutting materials such as HM AND HSS with cost-effective production while maintaining the highest quality standards.

Vibratory grinding – Barrel finishing

With the circular vibrators and centrifugal grinding machines used at nosta, components are optimally intermediate or finish machined. The spectrum of machining in this instance includes enhancing surface quality, deburring, rounding and polishing. The different types and sizes of installation allow maximum flexibility for finish requirements, component dimensions, production batch sizes and separation according to materials.

Component assembly

  • Compiling subassemblies
  • Completing packaging units
Close

Abrasive cutting

Grinding is a special abrasive machining process which uses a grinding wheel as cutting tool. The advantage of this type of machining is that it combines a two-step manufacturing process with high accuracy and geometric allocation. This eliminates downstream operations that would otherwise be required.

Packaging according to customer specifications

Packaging according to customer specifications: blisters, cardboard boxes, bags or Euroboxes

Welding – Embossing

Automated attachment of restraint elements such as balls and springs, tension and compression springs as well as resistance welding of leaf springs
Close

Adiabatic cutting

Adiabatic cutting, also known as HSIC – High-Speed Impact Cutting, completes the cutting processes used at nosta. This form of high-speed cutting with incorporated energy recovery, in which the workpiece is “knocked off”, results in very high production cycle times with minimal material waste. When combined with coil feeding, this process is suitable for medium to large batch sizes.
