We offer a strong engineering expertise and cooperate closely with our business partners to develop the appropriate tooling solution for each specific case.

We see ourselves as a partner for uncompromising precision – and consistently apply our quality standards. For example, we do fundamental research ourselves, and we have established our own considerable expertise within our company. We know about the materials that you use, and how they can be processed effectively. The procedures at Sphinx are well-structured and subject to multiple forms of quality assurance.
