Certification according to ISO 9001:2008

On 10 May 2016, a surveillance audit according to ISO 9001:2008 was carried out by TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH. All areas of the company were audited and evaluated. Particular attention was drawn to special features in the environment of pilot and small series production, as the quality requirements with regard to customer projects and requirements for near-series production are constantly increasing.

Investment in measuring arm with optical and tactile measurement

Investment in measuring arm with optical and tactile measurement

Since May 2016, a 3D measuring arm has been available for component measurement. Increased demands on the accuracy of highly complex components, especially in the automotive industry, require increasingly precise measurement technology. Tolerance management and optical metrology are fundamental components of quality assurance, especially for near-series zero and small batch production. For this purpose, an efficient measuring system is now available which has a high degree of operability and is versatilely available in the environment of the production chain. Optical metrology in particular enables the holistic and precise observation of individual areas in the entire process chain. This now makes it possible to analyse form and position tolerances in individual […]

Despite our special position as a precision foundry, the interest in our company and our products was very high. This resulted in interesting discussions with customers and partners from almost all sectors. As an investment foundry for prototypes and small series, we are fighting against the strongly emerging competition of 3D printing processes for plastics as well as classic casting alloys in aluminium, steel or titanium.

Am 1. Mai 1992 wurde die NRU Präzisionstechnologie GbR in Neukirchen von Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Jahn, Dr.-Ing. Ludwig Kant und Dr.-Ing. habil. Hubert Zeidler gegründet. Die Anfänge der erfolgreichen Unternehmensgeschichte begründen sich in den Pioniertätigkeiten des 3D-Drucks, wobei die NRU eine der ersten Fertigungsstätten in Deutschland bildete. Unser erster Firmensitz befand sich in der ehemaligen Kindertagesstätte an der Stollberger Straße und ist vielen Personen noch als “Kindergarten” in Erinnerung.
