History

Otto Flühs, then a 40-year-old set-up engineer for automatic lathes, founded the company in 1926. The economic conditions at the time were as bad as they could ever have been. Erich, his son, also started to work in the firm in the same year. After his father's death, it was Erich who took over the company and gave it its distinctive style.

A colorful Story

As early as 1935 it became possible to purchase the buildings which had previously been rented at the current site in Lüdenscheid Brügge.

The company enjoyed healthy growth until 1939, with the number of workers increasing from the original 4 to 15.
Even in those early days, the main material which was turned was brass, in particular for the faucet industry.

After the end of World War II, production began again in May 1945. Once again operations started with 4 employees, just as they had done in 1926.

 

By 1948, sixteen people were working for the company, and the first multi-spindle machine was purchased.

By 1951, at the start of the German economic miracle, the company had 55 employees.

Extensive building work started in the mid-fifties, eventually leading to a production area of more than 20,000 m² in the new millennium.

The work force increased to over 400 employees.

Production

The large number of machines ensures the production capacity which is necessary to achieve fast, economic results.

Ahead of the curve…

The large number of machines ensures the production capacity which is necessary to achieve fast, economic results.

The material used in manufacturing, of up to 1,400 tonnes of brass rods, tubes and profiles, is purchased exclusively from semi-finished products suppliers who provide the high standard of quality material which we insist on.

The high-bay warehouse supplies the production department with the material required, so making maximum flexibility possible.

 

The brass rods are automatically fed into the machines, and the waste material is led away under the floor. Over 100,000 litres of oil ensure especially constant cooling during the machining process.

Material Warehouse

This achieves maximum profitability coupled with optimum flexibility.

For non-ferrous materials, our rod processing capabilities are between 6 and 100 mm, and up to 200 mm diameter for chuck work.

All the materials used satisfy the appropriate quality standards.

Tool manufacturing department

One of the bases for Flühs quality, which is well-known around the world, is the comprehensive in-house tool manufacturing department.

The large number of experienced toolmakers, working with modern CNC turning, erosion and grinding machines, guarantee exact-fitting tools.

Automatic lathes

Flühs Drehtechnik's machines are optimally matched to each other and to the production requirements.

From zero series to large-scale production, the most up-to-date mechanical and CNC-controlled single and multi-spindle machines manufacture high-precision turned parts.

We have fully-automatic CNC lathe centres to carry out comprehensive processing operations.

Assembly

As a system supplier, Flühs Drehtechnik is equipped to meet the sophisticated demands of the future.

Environment

A vision of economy in practice characterises the daily routine at Flühs Drehtechnik. Our very own patented separating process for cutting oil and solvent was awarded an environmental protection prize.

We are always mindful of tomorrow

The company's measures taken to ensure effective environmental protection include energy consumption, air quality monitoring, noise protection, waste avoidance and protection of soil and ground water.

 

In addition, the company's product range includes a great number of valves designed to use water sparingly on an on-going basis.
