Metal parts must be properly formed before welding.

Certain processes need to take place before the welding is done. Specifically this includes: turning, milling, drilling, cutting etc. And we also offer these elements of prefabrication as a service.

Complex yet safe welding constructions have always been one of the core competences of Gothaer Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH. Our partners profit from our accumulated years of experience and technical know-how, say, of the processing of high-strength fine-grained steels for use in mobile crane construction, vehicles and mechanical engineering. These are fields in which we have proven our expertise in countless projects.

And yet we offer much more. With our significant production depth and our high-tech fabrication infrastructure, we are in a position to offer you individually tailored products at competitive prices. For this purpose our modern plate and tube cutting facilities along with our turning, milling and drilling services and those of CNC processing, robotics systems and surface treatment are all available to you. Our qualified employees will support you in developing your product and will implement your project requirements to your exact specification. Thus we are a complete services provider for metalworking and welding structures and can offer you a services spectrum that includes both ‘simple’ contract production (such as for pipework or plate cutting) and also fabrication of system components for highly complex crane systems.

Gothaer Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH is your specialist for all things metal.
