In 1960, the company founder Mr Hans Peter Schulte started with a small
metal-working business. During this time, provided metal parts such as heat plugs f.ex. were reworked.
In 1964, the first automatic lathes were bought and the cornerstone for a solid a steady growth of the company Hans Peter Schulte GmbH has been laid. Today, we belong to the market-leading manufacturers of precision turned parts and globally supply all well-known companies from all sectors.

Company foundation by Mr Hans Peter Schulter at his parental residence in Plettenberg-Ohle.
Due to the continuing expansion of the machinery the space in the premises of Plettenberg-Ohle became too small and the company moved to the new production hall in Plettenberg-Oesterau in 1986.
The steadily increasing quality requirements of our customers led Mr Hans Peter Schulte in 1991 to develop his own automatic CNC lathe in order to meet these requirements reliably and cost effectively.

Abbreviation for computer aided design. Professional CAD applications are complexe expert systems for the draft and construction of technical solutions. Virtual components can be displayed three-dimensionally.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) describes the entrepreneurial task of planning and controlling resources such as capital, human ressources, operating resources, materials, information and communication technology and IT systems in a timely manner according to the company’s purpose. The aim is to ensure an efficient value-added process and a steady optimized management of the business and operational processes. A main function of ERP in producing companies is the planning of material requirements which has to ensure that all materials necessary for the manufacturing of the products and components are made available at the right place, in time and in correct quantity. Nowadays, this task can only be fulfilled by the help of IT systems based on modern information and communication technology. An ERP system is a complexe application software or various interacting IT systems Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) describes the entrepreneurial task of planning company. Mostly, complexe ERP systems are divided into subsystems (application modules) which can be combined with eachother according to the company’s requirement.
The term Electronic Data Interchange describes as comprehensive term of the electronic data processing the data exchange by usage of electronic transfer procedures. As sender, forwarder and recipient of the sent messages the application systems of the enlisted companies/ organisations are directly involved.
Enterprise Content Management is used for the electronical filing and managing of business documents and information. All functionalities for efficient administration, fast application and safe supervision of information are made available throughout their whole life cycle. An ECM is the central knowledge platform where all information (paper-based and digital)
converge and can be retrieved immediately by the employees if required.
Computer Aided Quality Management (CAQ) implies the IT supported determination of the quality policy and its goals as well as the computer aided quality assurance in the company and is an element of the quality management. It accompanies the complete production process including all operational and service areas. This IT support related to the quality assurance is defined as Computer Aided Quality Assurance. CAQ sytems analyse, record and file quality relevant data of production processes. CAQ encompasses computer aided measures for planning and execution of the quality assurance.
Capabilities of CAQ are among others:
- Incoming goods inspection and supplier assessment
- Pre-production inspection (machine capability study, measuring system analysis (MSA))
- Inspection during production (often as statistical process control)
- Outgoing goods inspection
- Audit system (planning and implementation of audits as well as tracking of the detected defects)
- Impact analysis (FMEA)
- Document management (traceability of document changes) (DMS)
- Procedure management (traceability of taken measures)
- Complaint management (traceable handling with complaints by use of the so-called 8D procedure; c.v. 8D report)
- Gauge management (proof of measuring and test equipment capability, calibration and usage history)
- Initial sample inspection (proof of potential capability to produce the required quality)
- Quality planning (APQP)
DIN EN ISO 9001
The international standard Norm EN ISO 9001 determines the minimum requirements for a quality management system. This standards series was implemented in 1987 and has been updated five times since then. The latest is edition is dd. November 2015.
The standard ISO/TS 16949 was established in 1999 by the consolidation of the German standard VDA 6.1 and the American standard QS9000. It combines the requirements of quality management systems of the automotive industry and was commonly developed by the IATF members and launched together with ISO as technical specification (TS) based on the EN ISO 9001 and since then adapted twice to the renewals of EN ISO 9001.
ISO/TS 16949 was replaced by the new standard IATF 16949 in 2018.
The Association of the German Automotive Industry (VDA) with its head office in Berlin is an unincorparated association and the common interest group of the German car manufacturers and suppliers. The association was founded in 1901 as association of German motor vehicle industrials (VDMI) and then renamed to “Reich Association of the Automotive Industry” (RDA) in 1923. Since 1946 it is called VDA.
Machine Capacity is a term from the production technology which describes the stability and ability of reproduction of a production step on an operating machine. It enables to determine the potential rate of rejection and rework when operating this machine. The machine capacity can be calculated in the quality assurance with means of a CAQ system. The machine capacity is closely related to the process ability indices Cp and CpK of a production process.
FMEA, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, is an analytical method of the reliabilty engineering. Potential product defects are evaluated by key figures in view of their importance for the customer, their probability of occurence and detection.
In the quality and safety management the FMEA is used preventively for the avoidance of errors and in order to increase the technical reliability. FMEA is particularly applied in the design and development stage of new products and processes. This method is widely spread in the automotive industry as well as in the aerospace industry but also other branches require
a properly implemented FMEA.
Process capability index
In the production technology the cpk figure is referred to as a statiscal measure to evaluate a long-term process. The cpk is formed from the average value, the related standard deviation and the lower and upper specification limit (OSG, USG). The higher this value, the higher the certainty that the complete production is within the specifications.
DIN EN ISO 14001
A company determines an operational environmental policy, aims and programmes and establishes a corresponding management system which supports to achieve the goals.
