Sheet Metal Angles
Where the magnetic force begins
To ensure high stability, the four angles are welded together in the corners. The finished sheet metal angle composite is thus brought to size with minimal tolerances and permanently connected - this guarantees longevity, even with frequent picture changes. We manufacture part of the heart of every frame in this way. Magnetic force needs a counter bearing, in this case the sheet metal angle. For decades of use without rust, the metal sheets are coated. For each of these steps we have developed and built most of the machines ourselves - a great feeling.
I have been with the company since September 2018. It was made possible for me by the relationship and personal contact with an employee and the fascination of the passepartout-frame. To understand the product better, I have worked at almost all stations and machines so far. The exact precision, fitting work, cleanliness and the appreciation of the products and people are very important to me. I became aware that people are very important at HALBE directly through the warm welcome I received when I was hired.
We are Uwe, Klaus and Joshua. Every Classic frame ordered, no matter what size, starts with us. We cut the required sheet metal strips to the exact length and deburr the edges for your safety. To ensure that your frame hangs absolutely in balance later, we punch the suspension holes to the tenth. All leftover pieces are recycled.
I have been working in the company since the beginning of 1997. I became aware of the company through a job advertisement in the Rhein-Zeitung (a local newspaper) and simply tried my luck - with success. Before I came to my present department, I had previously worked at the basic element station and in the construction of the wooden frames. In my work I pay special attention to cleanliness and the accuracy of fit of a frame. Two frames that have stuck with me over the years are a LED frame and a Classic Wood 20 in oak. I find wood simply a great material.
I joined in October 2018, the fact that I started at HALBE is not really out of the ordinary as many of my family have worked here. It makes me proud to be a part of it. In the beginning, I was with the basic elements and eventually got to the sheet metal angle composite fabrication through shipping. No matter where I was, cleanliness and environmental protection became very important to me.
