  • 1. Tooling

    Rapid prototyping and small size serial production is performed in 3 & 5-axis machines by highly skilled operators. Our NC-controlled jig bore machine manufacture advanced fixtures and tailored measuring equipment. Various grinding machines ensures our capability to manufacture products with high degree of surface finish and accuracy.

    2. Welding 

    A line of manual welding stations, our capability has a wide range to offer. Our welders also support tooling in rapid prototyping.

    3. EB-welding

    Fully automated and NC-controlled EB-welding machine are used for products with high degree of accuracy and complex structures. We are also certified to do EB-welding repair in controlled environment.

    4. Automated machining 

    Fully integrated FMS system, including 4 machines and a washing machine, enables us to manufacture a wide range of products. All from high alloy to high speed aluminum machining (33000rpm).

    5. Advanced machining 

    5 to 9-axis machines manufacture advanced products from aluminum to high alloy. Semi-automation and pallets enable us to minimize changeover time.

    6. Makino machine center

    Our Makino machine center includes 2 A91 4 axis machines, 3 of A81/92 and 4 MCD 2500/3000 with 5-axis capabilities, manufacturing complex titanium, high-alloy and aluminum products. The machine pallet-system ensures a high degree of automation and unmanned production.

    7. CMM & Manual inspection 

    3 CMM machines and several certified inspectors ensure that our products are delivered to customer specifications.

    8. Prime and paint

    In order to environmentally seal the composite part/ assembly, various types of paints are sprayed onto the part. This can be done manually or using a robot. KONGSBERG uses a CNC Robot ABB with a painting area of 2100 x 4400 mm. To enhance bonding properties primers are also sprayed onto the details.
