MKT Metall- und Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH | Haas Customer Success Story
MKT Metall- und Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH was founded in November 1999 by Steffen Totzauer. With 8 employees at the time, drawing parts were produced from composite materials (hard tissue, hard paper ...) on conventional machines. These were, for example, ball bearing cages, bushings or insulation plates for mechanical and plant engineering.
In order to further develop the machine park of MKT GmbH, Steffen Totzauer analyzed the market for a suitable CNC-controlled milling machine.
In 2001 he bought a VCE750 from Mikron without further ado.
Upon purchase, the VCE750 turned out to be a Haas machine.
Since Mr. Totzauer was enthusiastic about the constant, error-free processing, user-friendliness and simplicity of the machine, he got in touch with the responsible Haas dealer.
The responsible dealer (M + L Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH) was under construction at this time.
In Ms. Müller and her team, a competent and reliable contact person was found for the future.
This was the starting point for a special collaboration.
During this period (2001-2020) over 50 CNC-controlled turning and milling centers were purchased from Haas.
This includes 25 different HAAS turning centers with a bar passage of up to 100 mm and C-axis with driven tools, as well as 25 vertical HAAS 3 to 5-axis milling centers, including MiniMill's, TM's, VF-1 to VF -6, UMC-750, UMC-1000SS, GR-510 as well as numerous rotary tables. Two APLs recently completed the production equipment.
By expanding the machine park, MKT GmbH was able to enormously expand its product range. In addition to thermosets and thermoplastics, sliding materials are now also processed.
Turned parts from a few millimeters up to a diameter of 800 mm and milled parts up to a length of 3000 mm can be produced. In addition to mechanical engineering, the precision products are now also used for medical technology, renewable energies, energy storage and the electrical industry.
After 20 years the family business has grown and now employs 35 people. The company has been training qualified specialists itself since 2002 in order to meet future personnel requirements. There are currently 5 apprentices employed. In addition, MKT GmbH has been certified by TÜV Süd according to DIN EN ISO 9001 since 2004, which is confirmed annually.
With the appointment of Norman Totzauer, Steffen Totzauer's son, as second managing director in 2017, MKT paved the way for the future. He had already been actively employed in the company since 2008.
Both managing directors value the cooperation with M + L Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH very much, be it the competent advice, the fast service or the joint solving of tasks. In 2019, the two company anniversaries 20 (MKT) and 15 (M + L) were celebrated together at MKT GmbH.
