Prototypes and small series from sheet metal up to 8.0 mm sheet thickness
Our service portfolio extends to sheet metal parts for prototypes and small series. Especially in this area, quality plays a special role. A lot depends on the material, whether strengths, bending radii or spring properties. Here we access a pool of different possibilities.
Prototypes from auxiliary tools / crash mould tools
For high requirements, we also supply sheet metal parts manufactured using prototype tools. Here, similar conditions apply as with prototype tools for injection moulding: the effort is kept within narrow limits, just so that the required quality can be achieved. If necessary, the bending and embossing tools are used unhardened, with limited output of less than a hundred to several thousand pieces. Larger bending operations are done by machine, smaller ones by hand. In the end, you get your parts just as you need them. Fast, precise and cost-effective. All sheet metal parts are produced in the planned geometry and from original materials in series quality. This means that you can carry out functional tests on the finished component after only a short time. If the parts are OK, we often produce further sample parts or even small series from the prototype tools.
Prototypes also often without tooling costs
Due to the use of bending construction kit systems, we are often able to produce your sheet metal parts WITHOUT proportional tool costs!
The two key manufacturing processes we use to produce your prototype or sample are laser cutting and waterjet cutting. The use of lasers is ideal when thinner sheets are to be processed; typically sheet thicknesses of 0.2 to 2.0 millimetres. Waterjet cutting, on the other hand, offers the advantage that no thermal energy is applied to the material during the cutting process. Here, precise, economical cuts up to a sheet thickness of 4 millimetres can be realised without any problems.
Also available is the generative SLM-Procedure, which is ideally suited for small quantities.
