In our own toolmaking shop we develop and produce a share of the production resources we require for manufacturing our products.
With our shaft melting furnaces, we melt down all our aluminum alloys with environmentally-friendly use of energy. In fact, we currently have 5 alloys in our range.
- Die casting
With our die casting machines featuring clamping forces of 420t to 1,050t, all of which are integrated in fully-automated casting cells, we produce complex, high-precision and pressure-tight components according to customer specification.
The process is precisely controlled and constantly maintained through procedure optimisation measures such as vacuum, jet cooling and minimum quantity spraying.
In metals machining, we can produce a vast geometric array of parts with high precision using diverse machine concepts (horizontal, vertical, double-spindle milling centres and rotary tables). In doing so, we also dry machine geometrically complex parts that have relevant surface cleanliness requirements.
- Assembly/Final inspection
Assembly has been a fast-growing field over the past few years.
Depending upon the customer requirement, here shielding foils are affixed, seals inserted, caps screwed on with dispenser-applied sealant, fittings inserted, clips assembled, and a variety of other assembly steps completed.
Subsequently, depending upon the customer's wishes, a seal inspection and/or function check is carried out on the machined or assembled parts.
If necessary, parts that have undergone final testing can be laser marked using DMC marking.
- Finishing: clean processes, high technical cleanliness
Centrifugal disk finishing machines, shot blasting systems, cleaning systems, a state-of-the-art laser cleaning system, and the continuous advancement of our processes are but a few of the elements that enable us to manufacture parts that can be glued, bonded and coated.
Our modern residual dirt laboratory – set up according to the requirements of the German Automotive Industry Association (VDA) Volume 19 – guarantees compliance with the agreed residual dirt particle sizes.
