Why Doesn’t Hermann Schmidt Still Sell…

NBIwPNM_webAP_EML_CUSTWe are often asked: “Why don’t you still build…?”

That list of tools still requested include angle plates, non-magnetic sine plates, edge finders, v-blocks, 123 blocks, squareness gages, etc.

Product life is not forever in this now fast-paced industry. Products have generally been dropped as stocking items when the market has indicated to us that we cannot support having items in stock at the price we need to sell them at.

That being said, we still regularly build angle plates, non-magnetic sine plates and 123 blocks for customers. Rarely is it price effective to have one built, but it is effective once quantities of three or more are needed.

Recent custom version tools include:

  • Angle plates
    • Special bolt pattern
    • Stainless steel
    • With integrated wire edm magnets
    • With System 3R, Erowa, Hirschmann referencing chucks installed
  • Non-magnetic sine plates
    • No holes in top plate for inspection
    • Custom size with spin fixture mounted
  • 123 blocks
    • Stainless steel
    • Custom hole pattern
