From Concept to Design and Development to the Final Product
With over 100 highly qualified and motivated employees, our facility at Velbert has become a general contracting center. From project planning to after-sales service, in every area we address we offer tailor-made solutions for all types of industries.

In addition to our core business in automation, testing equipment, and mold making, we also source molds from Chinese producers.

Automation and Testing

Our site in Velbert offers the whole process chain from project planning to the building of automation units, special machinery, gauging and testing.

  • Service and maintenance

              Project Planning
              Consider - plan - design - implement:

              At these stages our Project Teams work together with you to produce economically viable automation solutions - right from the initial beginnings of a solution right through to commissioning the unit on site at its destination. At the start of a project we put together a team from every special area which aims to produce an optimal result based on your special requirements. 

              All services in one go:

              • Mechanical and electric design
              • Assembly, construction of control systems and electro installation
              • Software development and process optimisation
              • Commissioning at destination
              • Maintenance and service


              Mechanical Design

              Even the word "special machine" expresses the unique character. No machine is like another and everyone involved in the project has to constantly face new challenges. Our design department  is made up of engineers and technicians with many years' experience. By using 3D-CAD systems and corresponding interfaces, we are able to develop detailed drafts already in the project planning phase, so that our customers can evaluate the progress at an early stage of the project and contribute their own experience.

              Production and test bench
              Our assembly teams are made up of the necessary specialist disciplines, in which we also train ourselves. Parallel to the mechanical assembly, all energy and communication systems are installed in a maintenance-friendly manner. After all modules have been tested in stand-alone mode, the entire system is run in as a network. The ground plan of our plant allows us to build machines up to 70 meters long and to test and optimize them under real conditions before delivery.


              This fully automatic system is used for the production of keys in several variants. The material is fed without interruption, so that the output rate is correspondingly very high. The variants and their assembly contents are controlled via transponders at the respective processing stations. The line data including the test data of the products are archived via a master Computer.

              Software Development

              The key enabler for machines that function reliably is well thought out software. Depending on requirements, our software development team programs on the basis of PC, SPS or microcontrol systems and integrates peripheral components such as robots from various manufacturers; image processing systems; operating data acquisition and control systems; software tools for testing and measuring physical quantities; transponder technology and database programming.


              For the commissioning of the production lines, the device concept is checked in detail for optimisation potential and adapted. After successful inspection your unit is transported to your premises and put into operation on site.

              Service and Maintenance

              Our service team works closely with our special departments to ensure that any malfunction is eliminated. In addition to the classic means of communication, we also use remote access directly to the machine.



              The Huf Tools Velbert GmbH is one of the top three finalists of the competition "Excellence in Production for tool Baudes Year 2012".


              At the contest, which has been held by the Laboratory for Machine Tools, RWTH Aachen and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT since nine years, a total of around 300 tool maker from Germany took part. Huf Tools Velbert was placed in the category "up to 50 employees," the third place. From the perspective of the jurors Huf Tools focuses on its core competencies, is innovative and maintains a consistent open communication.
