With Hyfore Workholding recently being announced as the exclusive UK and Northern Ireland distribution partners for the heimatec brand of precision tools and systems, Dirk Hund, the Head of Sales from heimatec Germany recently visited Hyfore Workholding in the UK to deliver in-depth product training on heimatec tooling.

With the UK’s most diverse range of workholding and tooling solutions now being expanded further with the introduction of the heimatec range, Dirk Hund visited Oli Riley, the Standard Workholding Product Manager at Hyfore Workholding to deliver in-depth product training on heimatec tooling. The presentations and training included solutions for static and driven tooling for fixed-head lathes and Swiss-type lathes.

Before the UK visit, the Hyfore UK team underwent comprehensive training sessions in Germany at the heimatec headquarters in Renchen. This programme consisted of in-depth training on how the heimatec tool holders are manufactured, assembled and tested in-house at their headquarters. Oli also had time to discuss the latest developments from heimatec with their R&D departments, gaining a deeper understanding of the behind the scenes processes and building relationships with the heimatec team in Germany.

Commenting upon the exciting new partnership, Oli Riley commented. “It was great to gain knowledge about the product range and diverse industries their products are being used in globally. I gained a great insight into the structure of the tool holder units and the impressive build quality. I am looking forward to imparting my new heimatec product knowledge to new and existing customers throughout the UK.”

Dirk Hund added: “It was great having Oli over in Germany. To host, train and show Oli around the factory and production facility was fantastic. Oli is a fast learner and picked up quickly on the advantages the heimatec product portfolio offer, such as high rpm versions, speeder technology, internal cooling solutions, high pressure versus standard pressure, customised solutions, heimatec Quick Change systems and more. We are happy to collaborate with Hyfore Workholding and strongly believe we have found the right partner for future success in the fast-growing UK market.”
