We try to do everything to monitor and assure the quality of our products. That is why we recently had a measuring bench developed to measure the straightness of our hardened ground shafts. For every batch of shafts that we receive the straightness is checked. With this addition every batch is now checked on diameter, surface hardness, straightness, roundness and material composition. On the photo you can see one of our production staff performing a test with a newly arrived hardened ground shaft on the specially developed measuring bench.

To guarantee the quality of our products even better, we recently proceeded with the purchase and certification of an XRF analyzer. With this XRF analyzer we are now able to perform a material analysis on our products. The portable XRF analyzer ensures fast and highly accurate results of the metals.
On the photo our Quality Manager, and qualified radiation protection supervisor, is performing an analysis in the measurement room with the Olympus Delta Classic Plus.
An extraordinary Christmas greeting…
December 19, 2018
The year 2018 is coming to an end. At THN we like to look ahead, into the future, but sometimes it is also wise to look back. What went well and what could be better? What successes did we achieve and what investments did we make? What we knew without giving it any thought is that once again we experienced solid sales growth. The workforce has also increased again this year. And as directors, we remain, of course, boss in our own company. At least that’s what we thought … During the preparation of our Christmas greetings we were forced to face facts. What exactly happened? You can read it in our Christmas cartoon.
Expansion linear machining center
5 October 2018
Moving our storage and packaging department to a new, physically separate location has created room for expansion of our linear processing center. Due to the increasing demand of shaft machining operations, the linear center was expanded in the past month with an all new Haas VF-4SS. With this CNC machine we can perform common machining operations in-house. We are therefore able to further improve quality, reduce delivery times and improve service to our customers.
Extra storage and packaging space
20 August 2018
Because the demand for linear shafts is constantly increasing, we recently expanded our machining center with an extra storage and packaging space for the hardened sharpened shafts. The production location, the storage and packaging department are now physically separated. This enables us to increase the stock and to organize the processes independently and to optimize them further. At the same time, space has been created in our linear machining center to expand the machine park, increase production and shorten delivery times.
Completed updated website online
July 1, 2018
Although our website was still working fine, it had started to get fairly outdated. We were well aware of this. After first investing in THN behind the scenes, following months of hard work our entirely updated website is now online. Not only is the website now suitable for almost any mobile device, it also provides much more information on our range, the various product groups and their applications and features. What's more, we’ve developed three online tools directly accessible through the website: the online plain bearing tools, the online sintered filter tool and the online shaft tool. These tools can be called up and used directly with the click of mouse on the sidebar.

After we updated our new plain bearing brochure at the start of this year, we are now also preparing the updated sintered filter brochure. Produced in full color, with extensive information on the materials and an overview with all technical features. There's also a detailed overview of our standard PUKS range provided with photos, cross-section diagrams and the specific features of each muffler.

Brand-new plain bearing brochure
February 16, 2018
He’d already said at the end of last year that alongside increased professionalization, we’re also working on giving THN a new, yet highly recognizable look. We’ll be gradually introducing this over the coming year. However, it is with great pride that we can already reveal the initial result: our brand-new plain bearing brochure. Completely updated, easy to use and very clearly laid out. And of course, all in the style of our new look. That means you can recognize THN from the cover itself, and you can see straight away which product group is involved. As of today, you can download the plain bearing brochure through our download page.
A new year
January 2, 2018
The new year has already begun. We would hereby like to thank all customers, relations and suppliers for their trust in THN. We have once again ended the year with steady growth. However, that isn’t the most important thing, since we’ve again managed to improved our customer satisfaction. And we're certainly proud about that. We now have the new year ahead of us and we’re back to work, and you’ll certainly be hearing from us. For the time being, we wish everyone all the best for the new year, in their business but of course also in their personal life.
Investing in the future
December 1, 2017
THN wants to be at the forefront with the latest developments, and so we’re investing heavily behind the scenes in making our family business future-proof. An entirely new IT infrastructure has been set up, the storage capacity and linear processing center have been extended, and the machinery expanded. At the same time as this increased professionalization, THN is presenting itself an entirely new, yet high recognizable, look. You’ll be seeing this in 2018.
