Custom machine design, tooling design and development
Hans von der Heyde
At Hans von der Heyde, our business revolves around our customers needs.
Cutting machines, punching, marking & coiling machines make up the bulk
of our business yet our expertise and technology does not end there. Starting
with our entry level MA easy range of machines, the flexible cutting machines
of the MA series with modular system or shearing module, circular or rotating
knife, pneumatically or electronically driven to our newest additions in
Laser cutting and Laser printing technology, such as the Laser of the generation
craft & motion with up to 2.5kw of power, at Hvdh we are continually
striving to develop new and improved cutting solutions where our customers
come out a "cut above the rest" be it in competition as well aseveryday
A German national company based in Cape Town South Africa, with more than
50 years of development know how with an extremely high level of performance
the latest technology, our range of machines are simply not just production
line affairs, but instead are reliable partners, crafted and "handmade"
in South Africa for the South African market.
From cutting machines for the plastic extrusion & metal processing industry,
laser cutters or laser printing, our well proven extrusion units such as
the Haul-off conveyor punch tables, slitting and coiling machines for plastic
or metal industries, custom machine design building and tooling development,
at Hvdh we can do it all.
Our closer partnership with Alkor and the use thereof of their aluminium
profiles in all our products enables us to a step further than the rest.
Hans von der Heyde SA are not only builders of quality custom made machine/s
but are also your local agent and supplier of the range of Alkor aluminium
profiles for sub Sahara Africa.
Whatever your machine building needs are, whether it be a simply cutting
machine, laser cutter or laser printer, a marking or punching machine, or
specific custom machine, tooling development or the supply of modular aluminium
profiles, we at Hvdh have it all for you.
Our other services include :
- New tooling development
- CNC milling & turning
- Wire EDM -wire cutting facilities
- EDM drilling
- Custom machine design & development
- Supply of Alkor aluminium profiles
Custom Machine Design
Hans von der Heyde specializes in custom machine design. This means, that we take the initial idea or concept and turn it into a fully functioning solution. This is achieved by closely working together with the customer during all 4 stages of the project, namely: Design & Development, Reverse Engineering, and finally Commissioning Testing & Evaluating. Hans von der Heyde approaches each of these phases with professionalism and dedication, ensuring a quality end product that guarantees customer satisfaction.
During the Design and Development stage, our highly experienced team works closely with the customer to determine the exact needs and requirements. These are then innovated on to ensure a cutting edge machine is developed which is able to effectively meet market demands in a cost effective manner. Once the requirements have been clearly understood, a 3D virtual model is created by means of computer-aided design (CAD). Once conceptualized, the model is once again analysed, to determine any problematic areas which can then be corrected prior to production.
Often customers will present us with an existing machine needing to be improved on. This is done by means of Reverse Engineering. During this process, the entire machine is dismantled and analysed. Within our highly skilled engineering team, new innovations and concepts around the existing machine are drawn up, in order to optimize it.
Before handing the project over to our client, the Commissioning Process takes place. This ensures an orderly and safe handover. The custom machine is tested and carefully evaluated by our commissioning team, which allows us to determine not only whether the system as a whole functions optimally, but each individual component does too. It is only then, that the custom designed solution is handed over to the customer.
With Hans von der Heyde there is no need for you to settle for an “off-the-shelf” product that leaves much to be desired. Instead, we will design a custom machine that meets your specific needs. With over 50 years of experience and the latest technology, our engineers deliver a broad knowledge of machine design to any project. By working closely with you, we will create the exact equipment that you require at a very competitive price!
