Master's thesis at Deharde
Combining theory and practice of mechanical engineering
Bending sheet metal into even smaller curvature radii and therewith bring the innovative technology of Deharde Polygon Forming® to another dimension: This objective is pursued by our student trainee Sebastian Robke in his master’s thesis, starting in June 2021. “I’m very pleased to do research on a topic that can bring direct benefit to the manufacturing of components for the space and aerospace industry.” says Sebastian who studies Mechanical Engineering at the Jade Hochschule in Wilhelmshaven. At Deharde, he is already integrated as a regular member in our project team Technology and Innovation.
We offer internships, jobs for student trainees and master’s theses on a regular basis because we believe combining theory and practice is to the best advantage for both the learner and our company.
Lean Camp at Deharde
The “Lean Camp 2021” at Deharde again provided important impulses for our continuous process optimizations. In order to improve a setting where projects can be worked on in an even more flexible, prompt and efficient way, this year the participants made a value stream mapping of current status on sample products. After identifying certain potentials, trained methods were used to design a target value stream. The newly adjusted steady flow in every step of making a product hence reduced lead and control times as well as costs.
The idea of value stream mapping will be carried forward by the "Lean Camp" participants to incorporate the concept of “Lean Culture” to the company in the long term. Deharde organizes professional lean camps on a regular basis in order to enhance customer orientation and economic efficiency.
Farewell to Uwe Fresenborg
Stunned and full of sadness, we say goodbye to Uwe Fresenborg, who died unexpectedly on Thursday night at the age of only 56 years after a short, serious illness. As chairman of the board, Uwe Fresenborg has formed the development of the Deharde GmbH since 2019. We got to know him as a charismatic team player who set important impulses for the company in just a short time. His personality combined expertise with foresight. As head and leader, he initiated important changes at Deharde; for his motto was "Let’s get a little better every day."
Born in Northern Germany, he was very fond of the region and its people; this was also expressed in his friendly relation with his colleagues. Structured and reflective in the matter, he led his employees in a human, thoughtful and fair way at all times.
With Uwe Fresenborg we have therefore not only lost a very experienced, successful managing director, but also an appreciated colleague and friend.
Our sincere condolences go to his family.
Marc Brestrich, Ingo Blazek, Christina Bourdaillier, Jan Hoffmann, Eilert Wilken

Deharde donation 2020
Experiment kits are donated to a nearby elementary school by Deharde
To inspire young people with enthusiasm for technical professions, this year we presented the neighbouring primary school with educational technology kits!
Aviation Forum 2020
On November 17/18, 2020 the national and international aerospace community met at the 10. Aviation Forum which this year took place exclusively digital. As always, the forum offered great opportunities to gather with business partners, establish new contacts, listen to tech talks and get to know new products. Of course we were present again, both as visitor and exhibitor. We thank you for kind new contacts and expanding existing business partnerships.
We appreciate your interest in our tech talk about „Deharde Polygon Forming®“, an innovative technology for sheet metal bending. Our sincere thanks to everyone who made this forum a great success!
Beyond the skies – successful launch of Vega C
Deharde parts flying high
Congratulations! Arianespace successfully orbited 53 satellites from spaceport, French Guiana. The mission of Vega flight VV16 is to serve applications including earth observation, telecommunications, sciences, technology/education, and others.
Deharde proudly provided jig and skins for the construction of the Interstage 1/2, a conical structure part that connects the first and second stage of the 30 m high Vega C launcher.
