Welcome to Bihler

"As a tool mechanic with Bihler you manufacture special tools for industrial series production. You make high-precision tool components by means of machine drilling, milling, turning and eroding – and you also use CNC tool machines which you programme yourself. You then assemble the individual components to make complete tools. After this, you operate the system and check to ensure it works correctly. As a tool mechanic you're always working in a team."

Marc-Oliver Helmer

High precision!

"My work in the high-precision micro range is something that never ceases to fascinate me. What I particularly like is that my day-to-day routine is very varied – it can involve , milling, grinding, assembling or testing components, for example. Bihler's high quality standards mean that there's a challenging task to deal with every day."
