Product Development Process

Development competence:
Our engineers and technicians analyse tasks and challenges systematically. The simultaneous engineering approach is applied in conjunction with our customers to generate sustainable solutions. Where necessary, simulation tools such as FEM are utilised. We collaborate with universities and institutes of higher learning to continuously develop our understanding of the fineblanking process.

Process planning:
Advanced product quality planning "APQP" and the production part approval process "PPAP" to ISO/TS16949 are implemented standard procedures at our facilities.

Tool and die making:
The expertise gained from making over 6400 finished tools and dies, combined with state-of-the-art machining centres, allow us to successfully realise innovative and superbly accurate solutions to engineering challenges.

We offer a complete manufacturing chain ranging from fineblanking, bending and forming, also including machining and heat treatment, right up to final assembly. Substantial investments in new technologies maintain our competitive edge and ensure process stability. Close collaboration with specialist subcontractors in the sectors of galvanising and heat treatment complements the range of services we offer.

Inspection processes:
We are equipped to undertake visual and tactile inspection of dimensions, surface conditions, microstructures and mechanical properties. Statistical methodologies are applied to assist inmonitoring, analysing, optimising and securing our processes.
