Machine downtimes are a thing of the past – how a 3D-printed component increases the efficiency of a machining system by seven percent

In the production of valve sleeves, many chips fly during machining. If these are not blown away properly, the machine stops and production stops. Why not use the potential of additive manufacturing (AM) and design a component that can handle the task better? What the engineers at BURGMAIER Technologies GmbH & Co KG have achieved is a real AM success story: With the new component, the machine has never stood still again. The company thus saves a high five-figure sum per year. The State Agency for Lightweight Construction Baden-Württemberg will present this innovation with its ThinKing in March [...]

Burgmaier cares for seniors on a voluntary basis

Every year, the company Burgmaier is committed to solving social problems with the innovative commitment of its trainees. Last year, the public playground at the Gasthaus "zum Kreuz" in Allmendingen was renovated, and this year, after a short brainstorming session, the trainees immediately came up with the idea to visit the Senior Center in Schelklingen and entertain the elderly. In October 2019, about five apprentices went to Schelklingen with an instructor every Tuesday, three weeks in a row, to visit the seniors and to look after them voluntarily. After their arrival at the senior center, a small tour [...]

From the idea to the finished part – Burgmaier presents a new business area during a visit to the Member of Parliament Manuel Hagel

The machine stood still five times per shift: for the company Burgmaier Technologies in Allmendingen, this means in the past an immense failure in terms of the already scarce production of a very popular valve sleeve. Together with the new branch of the company, the additive manufacturing, and some employees who operate the corresponding machines, it has now been possible to solve the problem. During the visit of the member of parliament Manuel Hagel (CDU) on Thursday, 06. June 2019 showed the commercial managing director Clifford Howald and Philipp Albrecht, how. Innovations and developments have not been Burgmaier's [...]

Visit partner community Querqueville at Burgmaier

On May 11, 2019, we were allowed to welcome the partner community Querqueville from France together with the mayor of Allmendingen Florian Teichmann with his delegation. Since 1981, the communities Allmendingen and Querqueville are already partners and maintain contact through mutual visits at regular intervals. The French delegation was led by mayor Jean-Michel Maghe and Jumelage chairman Michel Madec. The project started with a plant tour through the plant in Allmendingen to subsequently visit the new division of additive manufacturing. Very interested and captivated, the group followed the comments of application engineer Niklas Maurer about this new technology. [...]

Winter Sports Day 2019

On the 23rd of February 2019, the Burgmaier employees were back in the mountains for the winter sports day. Departure was at 05:15 in Allmendingen, then to drive over Laupheim to Schruns. On the way there was a little break with coffee and filled baguettes. Arrived in Schruns we were already expected by blue sky and bright sunshine. Shortly unloaded the skis and strapped shoes and it went with the gondola on the mountain. While only a small part of skiing was done this year, most of the group went sledding and sledging down the hill by sledge. [...]

Burgmaier goes into the future with Additive Manufacturing

Burgmaier Technologies has invested 1.5 million euros in Allmendingen in order to be able to produce individual 3-D prints for its customers in addition to the traditional machining business. This opens up completely new customer groups for the company. Layer by layer, the printer applies the finest metal powder to a plate. A laser quickly fuses particles of powder together before applying the next layer. 10 000 layers and a few hours later, the remaining powder can be turned away manually. What remains is a finished, often very filigree metalwork, which receives the final touch from a machine [...]
