Our beginnings

In 1967 Herman Herbing purchased his first grinding machine in response to a growing need for a high quality, local service for Engineers and Toolmakers in Melbourne, Australia.

Nearly 40 years later things are a little different. Steve Herbing (Herman’s son) is running the business, but has stayed true to Herman’s original commitments of high quality and service, while growing into a thriving business to meet the individual needs of clients across the globe.






Our quality

Herman was clear from the beginning; our products are not to HM standard if they are not precise, of high quality and delivered with exceptional service. Steve holds that same level of quality to this day.

At HM we know that the last thing any manufacturer wants is an integral product in continual need of repair. We work to assure our high quality.

We work with our clients and customers to ensure the finished product, repaired or new, meets their specific machining needs in a timely and efficient way.



Our Service

For the last 20 years Steve has taken the business to new heights providing high precision components, great service and being a leading manufacturer and repairer of quality machine tool spindles.

As the manufacturing and engineering industries have changed, so have HM Precision, and we now offer precision grinding, custom spindle manufacture, spindle repair and servicing as well as CNC spindle repair.

We offer local repairs that won’t cost you time or affect your bottom line. We know that the end result of a quality, precise and functional spindle alone is not enough; it needs to be delivered on time, with great customer service all at 70% cheaper prices than European imports.





Above all else, we know that when a spindle breaks your productivity goes down with it. Our solid understanding of the manufacturing industry means that when your spindle lets you down, we won’t.

Need urgent turnaround on your spindle?

Our average turnaround is 4 weeks but please enquire about our priority service which aims to have your spindles back turning around before your productivity is affected.
