Quality meets quantity

With approx. 2,600 components we can be considered as both a specialist and a jack-of-all-trades at the same time. A specialist, because we can also provide convincing solutions in niches with know-how and experience. A jack-of-all-trades, because our products are appreciated across industries and many customers entrust us with the production of many of their components. 

We are equipped to meet your requirements well and down to the finest details, e.g. with an automatic underfloor scrap disposal and distribution, set-up optimisation ensured with tool change tables, and the tool and raw material storage directly adjacent to these machines.


Your benefits at a glance

  • With 2,600 parts, a very high breadth and depth of diversification
  • Cold and hot formed components from all conventional steel and stainless steel grades, non-ferrous metals and special materials
  • All the procedures typically used in component manufacturing are on offer 
  • Final finishing up including fine cleaning 
  • Reliable quality management

Pilot series and test parts

Using laser technology, we produce pre-series and trial parts that are barely distinguishable from series quality. Good and inexpensive also in smaller and medium production sizes.

Our production process

Punching and forming

Cold and hot formed components of all the regular steel and stainless steel grades, non-ferrous metals and special materials are produced using state-of-the-art transfer presses with coil feeders or blank loaders. Thanks to table lengths of up to 4,500 mm, we are able to implement various transfer steps quickly and cost-effectively progressively within a transfer press.

Precise and precisely fitting - even with complex design geometries.

We process strips of 0.05 mm to 20 mm thickness in the deep-drawing, punching and punching-bending process with a pressing force of 30 - 1,000 t. 

In the manual stamping area eccentric and hydraulic presses with a pressing force of 55 - 630 t are used.

Let us know of your challenges. We can resolve them to the finish.

Joining procedures 

In our component manufacturing area, all the conventional methods are available to you. We combine our components both with melting and cold joining procedures, and on request also to form complex assemblies. 

We will gladly present you our portfolio in person and using real examples show you the cost advantages offered by our component manufacturing using deep drawing procedures compared to, for instance, castings and precision castings. 

Most of the components are assembled on-site, but depending on the situation also at our subsidiary HiSteel in Lithuania. 
The following joining methods are used: 

Welding

  • Arc welding
  • MIG (metal inert gas welding)
  • MAG (metal active gas welding) 
  • TIG (tungsten inert gas welding)

Resistance welding

  • Spot welding
  • Projection welding 

Other procedures

  • Stud welding 
  • Soldering 
  • 2D and 3D laser welding  
  • 2D and 3D laser cutting

Cold joining

  • Press-joining (clinching)
  • Clinching
  • Flanging
  • Riveting / Punch riveting / Wobble riveting

Special procedures

Final processing

Final processing takes place product-specifically using the following procedures:

  • Deburring
  • Vibratory finishing
  • Hand sanding
  • Washing
  • Degreasing / cleaning
  • Fine cleaning

There are 5 state-of-the-art, sealed systems available for PER degreasing.

For fine cleaning we use the services of our nearby affiliate VIA-Oberflächentechnik GmbH. With its 3,000 m² production hall area, VIA Oberflächentechnik GmbH is Europe's largest fine cleaning centre. It has led the way with its market-leading particle and grease-freeness and is effective at removing particle sizes <100 μm. Residual dirt analyses are carried out by VIA Oberflächentechnik during their production operations 

Surface protection

In cooperation with specially chosen external partners we offer all the usual coatings such as:

  • Galvanic surfaces
  • Duplex coatings 
  • Painting / powder coating
  • Zinc flake coatings
  • Chromating / Passivating 
  • KTL
  • Wet paint
  • Organic coating
  • Special coatings

Final assembly 

Wherever practical and possible, we assemble in our transfer and assembly centres in a fully automated setup. Depending on the complexity and batch size of the component or assembly, however, we rely on partially automated assembly technology for reasons of quality and cost.

The integration of components delivered by you into assemblies is also possible upon arrangement and, for reasons of process and cost optimisation, absolutely recommendable.

Component testing

As part of the component testing, we test components for completeness, function and tightness in our testing and machining centres. And all this to the fullest satisfaction of our customers thanks to our reliable quality management compliant with DIN IATF 16949 and ISO 14001: 2004.

As an A supplier to many car manufacturers, their suppliers and other industries, quality management is our top priority and is a matter of everyday routine. More information on quality assurance at HEINRICHS can be found here
