Sheet metal working from flat sheet to an individual product
We have extensive experience in sheet metal working. This enables us to fulfil even the most difficult requirements. In particular, our core competencies include thread forming and reshaping processes:
- With our technology, we are able to produce threads in extremely thin metal sheets with the help of rim holes. For example, we are able to insert M6 threads in 1.5 mm thick metal sheets; usually, this is hardly possible in sheets of this thickness. The procedure is carried out directly on the machine during stamping so that a high degree of strength is achieved.
- As with threads, hinges can also be connected to extremely thin metal sheets directly on the machine.
- Performance of this work directly on the machine during punching makes the process more efficient so that costs can be reduced.
- Processed materials include steel, stainless steel, aluminium and brass. Surface treatment is equally flexible. Possibilities include glass-bead blasting, electropolishing, anodizing and chrome-plating.

Glas coverage realized by our sheet metal working department
We manufactured an inspection glass cover for a customer from the power engineering/transformer sector using sheet metal that was only 0.5 mm thick. The company’s logo was stamped into the sheet metal and hinges rolled on. Upon completion of this work, the sheets were tacked, the surface was glass-bead blasted and finally pickled for long-term corrosion protection.
The basis for the project was a drawing provided by the customer. We optimized the design by recommending rolling on the hinges instead of using welded-on pipe sleeves. In this way, it was possible to save work stages and reduce costs. In addition, we were also able to create a refined product. Following customer release, the prototype was manufactured and approved, the special tools for production were obtained or constructed internally by the machining department and the inspection glass cover went into series production.
