From development to production maturity
GERLACH Maschinenbau GmbH develops, manufactures and distributes special-purpose machines for the rubber and automotive supplier industry. In addition to the high in-depth production, GERLACH also performs the entire development and the machine distribution. The further development of complex elastomer products, increasing demands on environmentally friendly and efficient production processes are tasks which we happily accept and provide solutions for. A complete production line is available to our research and development department to test our innovations for practicality. Customer mixes and moulding dies are also used for the validation process to provide proof of the production creation with continuous production.
We are committed to strategic partnerships
From the idea to the production phase we cooperate with independent and scientific partners. Already at the very early phase of the manufacturing process, we rely on the experience and competence of renowned institutes. TÜV Rheinland, for example, carries out series accompanying measurements at our production site. GERLACH works together with colleges and universities on joint research projects, to make the machines even more efficient and resource-saving. Close cooperation exists with the University of Paderborn. Last year, the expert magazine GAK published a paper on the topic of “Holistic energy concept for hot-air vulcanisation using innovative air guidance and heat transfer”.
A strategic partnership also exists with TROESTER in Hanover. Our cooperation partner TROESTER has a location in Cuyahoga Falls in the USA.
