#1/2012 - ahp.cad perfected
Dear Sir or Madam
In the first issue, we have put together three exciting topics for you. Of particular interest to you will probably be our new engineering and design tool ahp.cad. Find out about the practical functions or order your copy today. In addition, we report on the new [wfb] trade fair in Augsburg. A look into our company fills us with pride: For the first time, we are training a total of 16 apprentices to become skilled toolmakers – an equivalent to 12% of our workforce!
We hope you enjoy reading the letter! You can also use the feedback option and thus help design the ahp.letter. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome!
Yours sincerely,
Gerhard & Christen Merkle

In addition to the assembly and download of CAD data, the new ahp. cad offers comprehensive documentation on hydraulic cylinders in the platform-independent PDF file format.
But that's not all! For the first time, the new PDF data sheet not only shows the cylinder specifications and a dimensioned drawing, but also a 3D model of your assembled hydraulic cylinder! 

Using the mouse, this model can be freely rotated in all three dimensions – you immediately receive a realistic assessment and can quickly perform checks on the cylinder. Test it yourself or order your own free copy right now!

AHP Merkle at the [wfb] trade fair for tool and mould making
ahp.liveFrom 13 to 14 June we exhibited at the new [wfb] in Augsburg. In line with our trade fair strategy, [wfb] is following the trend of a high specification of supply and demand and promised to be an industry-specific forum.
Together with our sales managers Bernhard Bierer and Patrick Mußler, we were pleased about your attendance, valuable discussions, hands-on exchange with specialists and general feedback from industry insiders. Since years this has been the way in which we have maintained close contact with our customers. Opportunities as offered by the [wfb] are invaluable. After two days, we believe that a great platform for dialogue amid the tool and mould making industry has been created that will establish itself as a successful trade fair in the German exhibition landscape – though there is certainly still room for improvement. AHP Merkle will be exhibiting again in 2013 in Siegen and in 2014 in Augsburg!
How did you like our trade fair appearance?
We welcome your suggestions!

AHP Merkle faces up to its social responsibility
and focuses on promoting young people within the company
ahp.consciousnessThis year we are training for the first time a total of 16 apprentices to become skilled toolmakers at our headquarters in Gottenheim. This corresponds to a proud 12% of our workforce. The driving force for our outstanding commitment is not alone in training well-skilled professionals, we also want to meet our responsibility towards future generations and enable young people an optimal start in their careers.
As fathers, we know how important it is to give young people guidance. At this year's AHP Apprenticeship Day on 12 October 2012 – an open day by trainees for trainees – the decision for the right job and company is once again at the forefront.

ahp.movieBy the way, Oli Hiefinger, known as a decoy for the TV show "Candid Camera", has visited AHP Merkle and listened to trainees who explained to him what exactly a hydraulic cylinder is, how it is manufactured and what 100% quality stands for at AHP Merkle.

An innovation from AHP Merkle is about to launch. 
After two years of successful and absolutely trouble-free use of the new magnetic technology with magnetic field sensors in the cylinder block (MBZ), we are now also extending the cylinder series with the switch option (MHZ). The MHZ will also be characterised by the perfect coordination between magnetic technology and sensors!
Result: As of fall 2012, a hydraulic cylinder with adjustable switches will be available even for longer strokes. We will keep you updated!
Do you have any questions? We are only a phone call away!
