Forming technology

Flexible processes for optimal results

The basic procedure for the production of your parts is always similar. We receive the strip material for production from our steel and aluminium suppliers. The strip material is fed into the automatic machines via the strip processing line. In the automatic machines, product-specific manufactured tools take over the production via lifting movements. Basically, we use two different production processes. The use of the respective process is determined by various influencing factors, such as order volume or the complexity of the individual forming operations.

Progressive compound system

Low unit costs, high ease of maintenance

The material strip passes through several forming stations within a tool by fixed feed of the carrier strip. At least one forming operation is performed at each forming station. The feed rate remains constant. The last operation is always the separation of the finished part from the carrier strip. With a progressive die you can achieve low unit costs with high ease of maintenance. The following machine modules are involved:

  • Conveyor system
  • Feeding
  • Machine
  • Finished parts transport

Transfer tool

For large workpieces with complex geometry

In contrast to the progressive compound system, in a transfer tool the part to be produced is not placed with the material strip to the next processing position. Instead, the part is transferred to the next processing step with a gripper system.

This technology tends to be used for parts that cannot be attached to the material strip due to their geometric attributes, weight or size. In practice, these are rather large parts with complex geometries and medium quantities.

Production with transfer systems is somewhat more complex, since in contrast to progressive compound production, a transfer (gripper) system is still used. Efficient manufacturing requires exact coordination of the individual machine components.

  • Feeding
  • Machine
  • Transfer gripper for part transport within the mould
  • Finished parts transport

Manufacturing spectrum stamping & forming technology

Many products 
Suitable materials

Thanks to our in-house tool design department, we are able to provide you with extremely flexible support for stamping and forming technology. In addition to stamped parts, bent parts and deep-drawn parts, our experts also produce fittings, embossed parts and ready-to-install assembly groups for you.

Here the expertise of our employees in the field of forming technology pays off. Together with you, we discuss your individual product requirements and develop a high-quality product. We also pay attention to economic aspects and try to keep costs as low as possible for you.

It is obvious that we have expertise in stamping and forming technology with different materials. The spectrum of materials used ranges from steel to aluminium and non-ferrous metals (copper, brass) of all sizes.

Our wide manufacturing spectrum makes us a reliable partner for numerous industries. For years we have been developing tailor-made solutions for the automotive industry, the construction industry, technical consumer goods and mechanical engineering. In doing so, we combine our own expertise in the field of stamping and forming technology with specific industry know-how. This enables us to create optimum products for your needs.
