The processing of metal requires a high level of expertise in dealing with the specific alloys.



The load-bearing components of the frame systems are mostly made of steel and aluminium. Laser technology is used to produce the required moulds precisely and efficiently. Flatbed lasers produce the most precise geometries from sheet steel. In the further process, functional and visible parts are created from the blanks, which are seamlessly joined by laser welding robots.

Powder coating and galvanic processes are used for surface finishing.


All available systems allow fine adjustments in order to achieve an ideal matching of the moving components. The precision of the selected setting can be clearly read. For this purpose, accurate scales are printed directly onto the coated parts. The feedback of the set values facilitates pre-assembly and regulation of the components in order to set up an individual working situation.

OMT offers interesting possibilities for labelling the components.On request, customised lettering and logos can be applied using the pad printing process or laser engraving.


Handling aluminium profiles requires special know-how. Our designers are familiar with the particular challenges associated with this material. The high degree of precision and the surface qualities that can be achieved in the end product are fascinating.

To achieve this accuracy in production, we use a 5-axis rod machining centre to machine the components.


As an alternative to conventional joining processes, we have also been using a manual two-component bonding process for some time. One advantage of this method is that the components can be joined together even after surface finishing. A typical application example is the final fitting of decorative elements.

For recycling, bonded components can be easily separated mechanically and facilitate the separation of materials of different recyclable material classes.


Complex and functional. The development and design of complex die-cast elements are associated with special requirements. OMT’s engineers use die-cast zinc or aluminium designs for this, depending on the specific requirements of the component.

For series production, this creates highly functional connecting parts for the mechanisms of our office desk systems. In the design area, OMT relies in particular on die-cast aluminium elements. The benefits of the combination of function and design that we can realise with this process are remarkable. These are what the results of our product development represent.

Rapid Prototyping

Unique items in series quality

This generative manufacturing process is now an integral part of the development phase. Whether it is connecting parts, cover caps or brackets, wherever a plastic part is needed later in serial production, it is first imitated in prototyping by means of a rapid prototype. The method primarily used is selective laser sintering (SLS) with a fine polyamide as the material.

The situation is similar for castings: OMT uses CNC milling machines to machine steel and aluminium. Parts are imitated in the prototyping section that will later be produced as castings in serial production.

The visible added value. We create the shapes and functions of our frame systems in our metal-processing section.

We use two fully automatic powder coating systems for the surface finish. The choice of colours and structures from the RAL and NC colour systems is almost unlimited. The coatings offer high levels of weather resistance and light-fastness.Particularly high-quality components can also be electroplated.


OMT is a leader in the use of laser technology in the office furniture industry.

With OMT’s laser technology, components can be produced with unprecedented precision. Our high-speed flatbed laser cutting machines operate directly from our state-of-the-art sheet metal storage rack system. We also use our tube laser cutting systems to produce detailed functional elements with the minimum tolerances.

The components created in this way are joined by laser welding robots operating in three dimensions. The resultant weld seams are almost invisible. The result of using this technology is metal components of exceptional precision and high-quality appearance.


From simple sheet metal parts to complex, curved precision parts. We give everything its shape.

An automatic bending system offers many advantages, not only in terms of production speed. To carry out these machining operations, robots are required. With these, a consistent quality of production can be guaranteed on the basis of precise parameters and with standardised procedures.


The manufactured parts from our production facility are precisely assembled in the assembly department. Here again, human and machine work closely together.

Using complex robot systems and qualified specialists, we create precise results through efficient partial automation. Whether it is spindle assembly, final assembly or individual customer requirements, we work at a technologically high level that is guaranteed by the know-how of our personnel. In this way we achieve the highest quality standards and flexibility in this work step.
