Optimal manufacturing possibilities

At OMT, mainly steel and aluminium are used to produce the load-bearing components for our systems.

We shape the material using our production department’s laser technology. We use powder coating and galvanising processes for surface finishing.


Extremely fine adjustments are possible on all available systems in order to achieve the ideal adjustment of moving components. The accuracy of the selected setting is clearly readable in the process. To achieve this, precise scales are printed directly onto the coated parts. The feedback of the set values makes it easier to pre-assemble and adjust the components for a customised work situation.
When selecting how to mark components, OMT offers interesting options. On request, customised fonts and logos can be reproduced using a pad-printing process or laser engraving.

Aluminium processing

Working with aluminium requires special know-how. Our designers are attuned to the special challenges associated with this material. The high degree of precision and surface qualities that can be seen on the end product are fascinating.

In order to achieve this level of accuracy in production, we have opted for processing components in a 5-axis rod machining centre.


As an alternative to the classic joining process, we have also been focusing on a manual two-component bonding process for some time. One advantage of this technology is that the components can also be joined after surface finishing. A typical example of an application is the final fixing of decorative elements.

The bonded components are easy to separate mechanically for recycling which makes it easier to separate materials into their different material classes.

Pressure die casting

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

This results in highly functional connecting parts for the mechanisms in our office desk systems for batch production. OMT opts for aluminium pressure die cast elements in particular for parts that give products their shape. The advantages of combining function and design which we can achieve using this process are remarkable. The results of our product development are testament to this.

Rapid Prototyping

Unikate in Serienqualität

Unique items with consistent quality.
This generative production process has now become an integral part of the development phase. Whether connecting parts, cover caps or brackets – wherever a plastic part will be needed later when we go into batch production, it is initially imitated for the prototype using rapid prototyping. A selective laser sintering process (SLS) is used primarily with a fine polyamide as the raw material.

It is a similar story with cast parts: OMT has CNC milling machines to work with steel and aluminium. These are used to imitate parts for prototyping that will later be replaced by cast parts in production runs.

Surface finishes

The visible added value. We create the form and function of our frame systems using metal technology.

We use two fully automatic powder coating systems for surface finishing. The range of colours and textures from the RAL and NC colour systems is almost limitless. The coatings are weather and light resistant to a high degree. Particularly high-quality components can additionally be finished by galvanising them.

Laser technology

Fascinating precision. OMT is a leader in the application of laser technology in the office furniture industry.

Fascinating precision. Using OMT’s laser technology, components can be manufactured with precision never seen before. Our high-speed flatbed laser cutting machines are supplied directly from our state-of-the-art sheet metal rack storage system. We also produce detailed functional elements with extremely tight tolerances using our laser tube cutting machines.

The components produced on them are joined by our laser welding robots, which work three-dimensionally. The resultant welding seams are almost invisible. The results of using this technology are extremely precise metal components that give a high-quality impression.

Chamfering & bending

From a simple sheet of metal to a precision part with complex curves. We bring things into shape.

An automatic bending system doesn’t just offer benefits in terms of production speed. The use of robots is necessary to carry out these processes. This means that the risk of accidents to operating personnel is greatly reduced and a consistent quality of production to precise parameters using standardised procedures can be ensured.


The finest details

With our flatbed laser we produce highly accurate geometries from sheet steel. Functional and visible parts are produced from the blanks in downstream processes and are joined seamlessly by the laser welding robots.
