May 2014: Ropemaker students of the Textilschule Münchberg visited HERZOG


On the last day of our excursion we had been invited by HERZOG in Oldenburg. First of all they showed us a presentation, explaining that they make more than 500 different types of machine which are used in different industrial areas as well as for medical applications. After that we did a tour through the factory. We could see the different steps of machine production in detail. Furthermore we saw the assembly of the carriers and the plastic moulding of the bobbins. Very interesting was the production of components like e.g. gears.
