Summary

Summary: 
A German company is specialised in high-precision components, cold formed parts, turned parts and screw plugs for the automotive, hydraulics, drive technology as well as mechanical and plant engineering sectors. Flexible processes and intelligent methods enable them to respond quickly and manufacture the customer-specific parts at competitive prices. The company offers commercial agency agreements and manufacturing agreements to partners in different countries.

Description

Description: 

A German company has been specialising in the development and production of cold formed parts, turned parts and screw plugs for over 60 years. The company develops and produces customer-specific bulk parts at cost-effective rates. Using the latest technology, the company offers efficient and true to detail production of the ordered cold formed parts. Flexible processes and intelligent methods enable the company to respond quickly to customer requests.

The cold forming process, which is secured by the company as a product brand, allows to produce parts according to specific customer requirements as well as standard parts or standard-like parts. Currently, the company applies cold forming to steel and aluminium parts. This effective production process covers the entire process chain starting from the cold-formed blank to the finished product ready for installation component.
This offers many advantages:
- Production of cold formed parts to customer specifications
- Reduced consumption of raw materials
- High standards of technical cleanliness and dimensional accuracy of components
- High process reliability
The machinery includes four-, five- and six-stage presses with a pressing force of up to 4200 kN and a maximum wire diameter of 30 mm.

The product range of cold formed parts includes for example:
- sliding shoes used in hydraulic motors. They are made of high strength steel and have to withstand extreme loads.
- valve bodies for hydraulic systems. Compared to machined valve bodies, they do not contain lead and sulphur additives reducing the mechanical load capacity. The initial state of the press material is less solid than free-cutting steel, but its expansion is higher and the material hardens during the forming process. Even at -20 C the cold-pressed material is superior to the free-cutting steel, the valve bodies are much less likely to burst and their surfaces are smoother and cleaner.

The company also manufactures screw plugs for the automotive, hydraulic, plant and mechanical engineering industries. They are used for the reliable sealing of openings in liquid or gaseous media, e.g. in the engine or transmission. Made of aluminium, steel and brass, they also perform reliably in transmission and drive systems.
The screw plugs product range includes standard and standard-like parts that comply with German and international standards such as DIN, EN and ISO. The good sealing properties of the screw plugs are due to their precise adherence to narrow tolerances and the use of metal or elastomeric sealing rings. The sealing effect of parts without heads, such as sealing plugs according to DIN 906, is achieved by suitable thread pre-coatings.

Before developing the ordered parts, the company offers qualitative consultation with the clients. Within the framework of a forming simulation, it can show how the newly manufactured part will look in detail. The company supports the clients from the application development including the cost calculation through to the production planning and all the way to the actual manufacturing. The company plans the manufacturing based on the delivery schedule with a forecast of 6 months, taking into consideration the clean and safe handling of the parts and components as well as top quality assurance through ISO/TS 16949:2009 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications.

The German company wishes to conclude commercial agency agreements and manufacturing agreements with partners in different countries of the world. The partners are expected to promote the products and services among companies from the automotive, hydraulic, plant and mechanical engineering industries. The German company will provide promotional materials and will be responsible for the deliveries. Through this cooperation, the company expects to open up new markets and increase the awareness level of the products outside of Germany.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
- Compared to conventional machining, cold forming reduces the consumption of raw materials to a minimum. As a comparison: for a similar work piece, the chip content is 105 g for machining and 9 g for cold forming. This not only saves resources and protects the environment, but also reduces production costs. The cold forming process also creates consolidated, smooth surfaces and favourable internal fibre orientation. Parts with special shaping and tolerance requirements can be produced economically by re-machining the cold-formed blanks. - The 65 years of expertise of the company in the automotive industry ensure that the company is prepared to solve any problem. It has been working with customers for so long to develop new solutions for future orientated applications repeatedly. Goal-orientated investments in new technologies and machinery as well as the constant advancement of knowledge and the permanent training and continuing education of the employees also provide for the best results. - Different awards convincing of the quality of the company: Grand Prix of Medium-Sized Businesses: Award winner Innovator of the year 2018 German Brand Award 2019 - Certificates: Certificate ISO 9001:2015; Certificate IATF 16949:2016; Certificate DIN EN ISO 14001:2015; Certificate DIN EN ISO 50001:2018 ; Certificate DIN ISO 45001:2018 - A brochure containing detailed information about the services and products can be downloaded directly from the website of the company.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The German company wishes to conclude commercial agency agreements and manufacturing agreements with partners in different countries of the world. The partners sought should have a high level of market and industry knowledge in order to be able to establish a long-term cooperation. On the one hand, the cooperation partners should create access in their regional market or offer an ideal complement to their product portfolio with the products of the German company. The potential partners should be networked in the B2B environment of the automotive industry and be interested in long-term business relationships.
