Production

HEGGEMANN offers its customers integrated solutions, from material know-how to testing. The individual processes are carefully coordinated to ensure the highest level of quality, feasibility and cost-effectiveness. We accelerate time-to-market for the benefit of our customers through efficient development processes, which we constantly optimize.


Material

HEGGEMANN has a broad supplier portfolio with material know-how in all types of metallic materials in the aerospace sector. The conversion of the required materials, for example to AMS, is carried out professionally.


Laser cutting

Based on the latest fiber laser technologies, HEGGEMANN offers 2D and 3D laser cutting. In the aerospace sector, various special process approvals have been obtained in order to be able to use laser cutting also for final contours.


Forming

In addition to standard forming technologies such as conventional forming and 3D bending (tubes) and cutting, HEGGEMANN has focused on forming materials that are difficult to form using hot forming technology and has built up its own know-how.



Machining

HEGGEMANN offers the following machining technologies in the most modern machinery:
A special focus is on the efficient machining of of high-strength materials such as titanium or Inconel.

  • Milling (5-axis simultaneous machining)
  • Turning (with driven tools)
  • Complete CAM integration

Welding

In addition to automated welding technologies such as laser, MIG and MAG, HEGGEMANN covers a broad spectrum of manual welding processes with highly qualified employees.

In the area of TIG there is a NADCAP qualification. Welding outside the vacuum chamber is the unique selling point of the company in titanium welding. 


Joining

HEGGEMANN uses various riveting technologies such as bonding, soldering, clinching and hybrid joining for the realisation of assemblies.


Assembly

As a specialist for complex assembly components, HEGGEMANN offers documented precision in the separate, large assembly areas. Our trained experts work according to the latest standards and certificates of the aerospace and automotive industries.
