Mawick expands optical 3D metrology with GOM
The GOM ATOS 5 system meets the high metrological requirements of our industrial customers. Thanks to advanced camera technology, a powerful light source and high-performance software, the system reaches a new level of performance, especially when measuring glossy and dark surfaces, fine structures and edges. The technology speeds up the overall measurement time and the full-surface 3D scans ensure, among other things, comprehensive process and quality control with simultaneous high-precision data: from tools and molds to plastic and metal parts. As a result, it makes errors and defects directly visible. This allows corrections to be initiated at an early stage and processes to be optimized.

"Plastics technology with passion"
With the company slogan "Plastic technology with passion" established in early 2014, the Josef Mawick Kunststoff-Spritzguss GmbH & Co. KG began an externally visible profiling phase in which it was important to clarify the company's core competencies and key performance areas and to present oneself positively position against the competition. Mawick will meet the future challenges of the plastics industry with the same determination and innovative strength as the deceased company founder Josef Mawick (2014†) realized in his life's work.
John Deere price
In the second decade of the 21st century, Mawick undeterred continues on its course as a full-service provider in plastic injection molding technology and impressively underlines its willingness to perform and service qualities as a "partner-level supplier" of the John Deere Company. The Mawick company has been awarded the John Deere Prize three times in a row for outstanding product quality, excellent delivery service and passionate commitment.
In 2008, the family company can proudly look back on a 50-year success story. The Mawick family celebrates their company anniversary on the company premises with numerous employees, customers and their families.
The rapid development and implementation of new product ideas as well as production possibilities in plastics technology are an opportunity for Mawick to prove its innovative strength and willingness to perform and to master these new challenges. In 2001, a high-bay warehouse with 8,600 pallet spaces and the new administration wing went into operation - in 2006 a 1,500 t injection molding machine followed.
With the entry of son Klaus Mawick into the company in 1995, the successor was arranged at an early stage and the successful continuation of the family business was secured.
Certification and quality management
The company is taking on the complex issues that are now being brought to the attention of suppliers from the automotive industry in particular. Josef Mawick recognizes the importance of certification and quality management and that they will decide on the future viability of the family business and invests again. Builds a new production hall, a crane system, a finished goods store, a tool store and the company is certified according to DIN ISO 9001 and ISO TS 16949.
Computer Aided Design (CAD)
In this way, Mawick can convince and expand its clientele. With the advent of Computer Aided Design (CAD), a revolution in product development began, resulting in ever more complex shapes and plastic products. Mawick invests again - in a computer-aided development and design department, which is directly upstream of the tool shop.
At the beginning of the 1980s, Josef Mawick initiated a further expansion phase in the company with new investments in production and development, which became visible to the outside with the construction of a 5,000 square meter production hall. The company is successfully countering the increasing competitive pressure in the plastics industry with the automation of production processes and with services such as component assembly, packaging, finishing and logistics.
20 years of MAWICK
After just 20 years, the Mawick family business can employ more than 170 people, is strengthening its successful business relationship with Varta, Bosch, Hoppecke, Puky and other well-known manufacturers, and has a production area of around 6,000 square meters.
The first injection molding machine
In 1968 Josef Mawick bought the first 400 t injection molding machine and one year later the first "apprentice" began his apprenticeship as a toolmaker. Today, as then, the company relies on the training of its own specialists in all areas, from production to commercial. Administration. And this strategy pays off in the long term – for the customers, the company and, above all, for the employees
But it quickly becomes clear that due to the prosperous business relationship with the large battery manufacturers, the production areas and capacities have to be expanded. Mawick invests in people and machines at an early stage. In 1962, with the first permanently employed toolmaker, the basis for today's in-house toolmaking was laid.
Two years after the company was founded, at that time still under the name Josef Mawick Kunststoff-Fabrikation, the company began an impressive course of expansion at its current location. First, the Mawicks acquire a 2,500 square meter open space in Werl-Sönnern on which a production hall and a residential building are built.
In 1958, Josef Mawick laid the foundation for today's company and, together with his wife Gertrud Mawick, shaped the Josef Mawick plastic injection molding plant for decades with their determination and innovative strength.
