Custom Workholding Solutions

Custom Tool Design & Production

Hermann Schmidt® production mechanical and magnetic workholding tools can often be configured to meet requirements thought only possible with custom-designed tools.

We also use our products for innovative solutions beyond original purposes. Since we design and build our tools, we know how to increase performance.

Sourcing & Solution Configuration

We are a one-stop resource for all your magnetic workholding requirements. We can help you configure the most efficient and cost-effective solutions, using our tools, your tools, and/or tools sourced from select vendors.

If we don’t make an available size or style, we will recommend and acquire tools that meet our high standards.

We also source high-quality unique items, including: radial pole permanent magnets,  electro-permanent grinding and hard turning magnets, stainless steel scroll chucks, dovetails, expanding collets and more.
