Where and when we become active
At the external tool shop (supplier of the customer) – here mainly the tools for the production of high-strength and ultra-high-strength reinforcement parts are procured
At the external suppliers for purchased parts of the customer – here mainly the high-strength and ultra-high-strength reinforcement parts are procured
In the customer’s in-house tool shop – where usually only large tools for Class A parts and the related inner parts are manufactured
In the customer’s in-house press shop – which is the usual production of outer skin panels and other large body parts
At the external press shop (the customer’s supplier) – these are usually press part manufacturers located near to the car manufacturer. Here the quality of the individual part has to be assured
In the customer’s in-house body shop – this is where the body-in-white is welded. Jigs and fixtures have to be adapted, robots programmed, and the quality of the assembly checked. It is not uncommon to go back to the external press shop and have parts modified there in order to join them better or to enforce the body-in-white

„Timing is particularly important here. Unfortunately, you can never make up for the time lost in a project at the beginning due to errors. This is because errors, undetected at this stage, lead to massive delays. Therefore, the mandatory basis of every project is to precisely control the design, the selected manufacturing method and the connected processes. Only then will it work.“
