Cutting-edge processes for high quality time and time again.
The tool production plant manufactures real tool parts, including in production runs. The established processes such as turning, milling, eroding, grinding and polishing are used in the manufacture of high-quality forming tools. The most complex of tool geometries are transferred to modern multiple-axis machining centers via a CAM system and manufactured in hardened condition. Heat treatment also plays an important part and can be deployed in the in-house hardening plant.
At the Reinach site
The tool parts produced in Reinach are assembled, forming station by forming station, into a complete initial equipment tool set and supplied to the customer. This ensures reliable and fast set-up and increases efficiency when inserting new products into the forming machine.
At the Shanghai site
Spare tools for series production are manufactured in ultra-modern facilities in Shanghai, for Swiss quality "made in China". The plant ensures the efficient manufacture of complex formed parts in small- to medium-scale series production for all types of Hotmatic hotformers. All manufacturing processes are conducted in-house using the very latest processing machines, guaranteeing high quality and reproducibility.
