AWU has been specializing in

  • small-series production, single part, and prototype production

Our qualified and skilled  workers in Prešov (SK) on an area 1 000 m2, produce on extensive and modern equipment wide range of machine parts and rolls. According to customer requirements products are produced as drawings suggest on-site with great precision, including a uniform surface hardening.

AWU stands for

  • outstanding quality and highest precision
  • absolute compliance with dimensional accuracy, especially with tolerances of form and location
  • low-cost production of small and medium-sized batches
  • specialization in machining of hardened material (turning, grinding...)
  • adequate heat treatment
  • individual and competent customer advisory service
  • high flexibility and fast reaction
  • fast processing of offers
  • short delivery times


Sophisticated parts to drawings

  • the partial hardening, made of unhardened primary material
  • with high-precision, turning, drilling, milling and grinding
  • high dimensional accuracy, also keeping the tolerances of form and location
  • small-sized quiding columns
  • all common materials such as Cf59, Ck60, Ck45, X46Cr13, X90CrMoV18, and additional 42CrMoV4, 51CrV4

Surface roughness

to Ra 0,025 μm

Made-offs with the final processing

  • For all possible types (guide) used in machinery or elsewhere
  • materials as described above

Production length to 6000 mm diameter with 6-80 mm in the manufacturing tolerance h6 and h7. Other diameters and tolerances on request.

The guide shafts ready for final machining assembly - with ball bearing housings and grooves - worked as a fixed length.
