Our vision in the machining of special components is actually quite simple: We want to transfer the standards of today’s automotive engineering to our beloved classics. With sustainability.
We couldn’t do it without many years of experience. In 2018, we expanded our machine park with a 5-axis machining station from DMU. With the matching CAM system from SOLID CAM, we have since been able to implement almost anything technically feasible. Christian Wilms, co-owner at Triebwerk, in addition to his training and extensive practical experience as an engine and transmission builder, has set up state-of-the-art turning and milling centers himself in production for renowned chassis manufacturers and has also manufactured the most complicated components. The decisive factor for resilient, stable engines is professional and precise machining. A lot of thought and time has gone into the design and manufacture of fixtures. Learnings from days gone by that were due to machining from outside services – and analysis of why those problems arose – led us to sweat change processes, because: Better is the enemy of good.
The expansion stage with us at “Das Triebwerk”
All housing work is carried out on the large bed-type milling machine with 1.8 meters of travel in the X axis. With the CNC-controlled swivel axis, each component can be brought into the required machining position. We also have the SOLID CAM post-processor for this machine, which makes machining to modern standards possible. By scanning combustion chambers, for example, we can duplicate any combustion chamber with very high accuracy using the “Scan to 3D” function. Many an expert would be surprised at how high the manufacturing tolerances of individual components actually are. Regardless of whether it’s Porsche six-cylinders, Volkswagen four-cylinders or even V8 engines – we machine every part to size.
