Berger as a service provider
A strong partner in all areas
Support for product development
We will work along side you, as a partner, and support you in product development, for a specific component, or an entire component group. Using our expertise in metal-cutting and machining, we will work to find you the ideal part geometry, the optimal material and match it with the appropriate hardening technology for production – all this to achieve optimal and cost-effective production.
Berger is proud to offer our customers Simultaneous Engineering during the development phase of new products. By doing this, we can shorten the development time for prototypes, new products, and avoid subsequent costly changes that often arise from production difficulties. Overall, our customers profit from an improved ability to effectively synchronize product development and product production.
Once product development has been completed, the process development phase defines how the product should be manufactured. It is imperative that the correct manufacturing process is determined, which is why the process development phase is of utmost importance. As a result, we are able to offer our customers significant potential savings through optimization of machining sequences, and the choice of machine concepts.
To meet the needs of our customer requirements, we have developed modern machining centers, automated testing machining that result in production systems that are able to further increase the efficiency of production.
For especially demanding projects, Berger has the use of the Bergomat CTC 16. This machine, developed at Berger, enables us to produce efficiently and economically, components that have a very high degree of complexity.
Properties of the Bergomat:
- Rotary transfer machine with up to 93 CNC axes
- Six-sided machining
- Flexible loading options
- Up to max. Ø 50 mm from the bar
- Up to max. 100 mm edge length / chuck parts
- Up to max. 180 mm workpiece lengths

With our in-house hardening facilities at our Memmingen and Poland locations, Berger has enjoyed worldwide recognition for our hardening technology. We also enjoy many partnerships with leading companies, for example in the automotive and machining industries, that rely on Berger for their custom heat treatment needs. On top of heat treating parts that we have manufactured in-house, we are also happy to serve as a subcontractor for customers who require our hardening facilities.
