METAL PROCESSING IS OUR STRENGTH

As professionals in metal processing, we combine experience, technical know-how and manual skills with modern technology in order to meet the highest demands. We manufacture in two halls with a total production area of ​​1,600 square meters and use modern CNC machines.

OUR SERVICES


STEEL AND STAINLESS STEEL WELDING

We mainly weld steel with the MAG or TIG welding process.


MAG welding (metal active gas welding) is mainly used for unalloyed types of steel. We use it, for example, in the manufacture of vehicle parts, repairs and maintenance.

TIG welding (tungsten inert gas welding) produces particularly resilient and permanent weld seams. This process is the first choice where the highest quality is required and the welding speed plays a subordinate role.

ALUMINUM WELDING

Compared to steel, aluminum is a little more difficult to process. The MIG or TIG welding processes are used.

MIG aluminum welding (metal inert gas welding) is used for heavy-duty weld seams, for example in vehicle construction.

TIG aluminum welding is used where particularly high quality is required.

SPOT WELDING

With spot welding, the metal is heated very strongly at certain points, which means that two workpieces fuse together and, after cooling, are almost inseparable.

MMA WELDING
(ROD ELECTRODE WELDING)


MMA welding is a versatile process. With the exception of aluminum, our welders can weld almost all metals with high quality. Since the welding speed is relatively low, we use MMA welding mainly on construction sites and for the production of components with a low percentage of welding.

STUD WELDING

With this process, we create particularly strong and secure connections between large workpieces and bolts (up to a diameter of 12 millimeters). Stud welding is mainly used to fasten components.

SHEARS

In contrast to folding or bending, the material is completely severed when shearing sheet metal.

For sheet metal blanks, we use guillotine shears (4000 mm x 10) or profile steel shears (60 tons / punch up to 38 mm, notcher 48 mm).

TIN SHEARING OR LASER CUTTING?


Laser cutting delivers perfect material edges on thin sheets that no longer have to be reworked. In addition, holes and recesses can be done in the same work step. This saves time because there is no need for subsequent milling.

Despite the advantages that laser cutting offers, shearing sheet metal is still justified. In some orders, the quality of the material edges is not the top priority. If the focus is on costs, sheet metal shears are a good alternative. The thicker the material, the more time-consuming the laser cut is. If time is short, it can therefore be useful to cut thicker sheets with guillotine shears. In addition, the energy required for shearing is significantly lower than for energy-intensive laser cutting.

Whether laser cutting or sheet metal shearing is used depends on the material used, the time available and the quality requirements for the end product. We have mastered both methods and are happy to advise you in terms of an optimal cost-benefit ratio.

LASER CUTTING

With our computer-controlled laser cutting system (4 kilowatts) we can cut metal sheets in the format of up to 1.5 x 3 meters.

Our laser cuts steel up to a thickness of 20 mm, stainless steel up to 15 mm and aluminum up to 10 mm.

With the CNC laser (CNC = Computerized Numerical Control), complex shapes, contours and recesses can be cut extremely precisely. There are hardly any limits to the variety of shapes, which means that we are able to implement your ideas in the highest quality.

BENDING

Folding is one of the most important processes in metalworking. It is used to reshape sheet metal with mechanical force and to manufacture ready-to-install components.

For the pressing process, we use a CNC-controlled press brake make BBM (CNC = Computerized Numerical Control). Computer-controlled press brakes deliver far more precise results than mechanically controlled machines.

The pressing force of our press brake is 250 tons. This allows sheets of up to one centimeter thick and over four meters in length to be pressed into the desired shape without cutting or chipping the sheet.

The press brake works with an upper and lower tool – the punch and the die, between which the sheet metal is pressed into shape.

TO BEND

When bending, profile tubes, round tubes and flat steel are formed without cutting or machining them. Components are given a smooth radius. The choice of bending process determines whether the radius should be narrow or wide.

THORN BENDING

Mandrel bending, also known as rotary pull bending, is used for very tight bending radii. With our CNC mandrel bending machine (CNC = Computerized Numerical Control) we can bend pipes up to a diameter of 60 mm. The narrowest possible radius corresponds to 1.6 times the pipe diameter (R = 1.6xD).

Special tool sets are used for the respective pipe diameter and bending radii.

PROFILE BENDING

Profile bending, also known as ring bending or 3-roll bending, is mainly used for bending profile tubes and round tubes with large radii. With our modern CNC profile bending machine we manufacture, for example, pipes, profiles or steel beams. Since profile bending enables a variety of shapes, we can also produce half-shells, transitions, rings and other shapes according to your wishes.

BASKET BOW

As a special feature, we offer the bending of different radii in one profile (basket arch).

ASSEMBLY

Our proven assembly team installs the parts we manufacture on site. The delivery takes place on time by truck.

We thus offer a complete service from production to transport to assembly and can guarantee consistently high quality for all production steps.

MAINTENANCE

Our customer service takes care of the professional maintenance of the assembled components. This preserves the functionality and extends the service life of the installed components.
