Production of stamped parts, bent parts and deep-drawn parts

Product development

Solution-oriented partnership


As a competent consultant and active partner in the development process, we work closely with our customers. The dialogue begins at a very early stage. Initial product ideas or customer sketches often form the starting point for the joint development process. In the next step we formulate a concrete requirement profile. The corresponding component is then created at modern CAD workstations, including the necessary FEM calculations and simulations. During the entire development phase we are in close dialogue with our customers. This enables us to find functional solutions with a view to cost-effective and efficient production.

Safety for series production

Prototypes create clarity

Prototyping is an important step in the development process of complex components. With the creation of the specification sheet we achieve a clear agreement on the design of the product and the associated choice of materials. Using the prototypes we produce, we can check the design concept together with our customers and produce binding samples for series production.

Comprehensive internal and external audits

Our prototypes are subjected to in-house tests. In addition, external experts are available to us in the institutes. Additional comparative tests under mechanical, thermal and thermo-mechanical stress serve to check and confirm the process parameters and material batches we have defined.


Flexibility through in-house toolmaking

Craft and computer technology

Building complex tools is precision work. Because only a perfect tool guarantees maximum precision in production. Our understanding of tool making is based on the handicraft tradition of the toolmaker, which we combine with modern technology.

Tools, devices and special machines

We manufacture all operating equipment in our own toolmaking shop. We use controlled machine tools for this purpose. In this way we guarantee the high quality and reproducibility of our tools.

We manufacture in our tool shop:

  • Follow-on composite and transfer tools
  • Devices
  • Special machines

Extensive spare parts warehouse

In addition, an extensive spare parts warehouse for our tools ensures uninterrupted production processes. We also design and build special machines in-house. A secure basis for reacting flexibly to customer requirements at all times.

Production facilities

Production in progressive compound and transfer system

High degree of automation for high precision

August Schmits takes advantage of the dynamics of technological development in forming technology. We continuously invest in production facilities that are state of the art. In this way we increase the degree of automation of our production lines. The integration of state-of-the-art technology ensures efficient series production and guarantees the highest degree of precision.

Efficient series production

We manufacture our products on modern automatic punching machines in progressive and transfer systems. Short change-over times enable the production of large series as well as medium and small quantities. Eccentric and hydraulic presses and special machines are available for further processing.


Computer-aided quality assurance

Analyze, document and archive

August Schmits uses computer-aided quality assurance (CAQ) as an element of quality management. We analyse, document and archive quality-relevant data on our manufacturing processes. We achieve optimum quality through statistical process control. Continuous evaluations confirm the high quality level of our products, as our customers expect.

Certified according to IATF 16949:2016

The fact that our processes are monitored and the quality of our products is traceable is demonstrated by the certification according to IATF 16949:2016, a uniform and globally recognised standard for automotive suppliers, which August Schmits meets as a certified company.

Excellent delivery capability

Permanent availability strengthens market participants

Producing quality products is not enough. They must also be available, exactly when they are needed and exactly where they are processed. We guarantee our customers short reaction times and permanent availability – worldwide. We deliver exact quantities “just in time” and according to all common logistics concepts.

We control our merchandise management and logistics via our high-performance IT and with the help of “EDI” we can determine the requirements of our customers and define the necessary logistics routes. Our excellent delivery capability strengthens both our own market position and that of our customers, who can always meet their obligations as system suppliers.
