Custom heat treatment systems – built specifically to match your production needs

Modern auto body manufacturing would be difficult to imagine without heat-treated steel components. Indeed, the use of such parts is continuously growing.

Enhancing vehicle safety while cutting fuel consumption, and hence CO2 emissions, through reduced weight – such are key challenges faced by the automotive industry today. To meet these requirements, engineers rely on high-strength steels that are shaped into safety-relevant structural bodywork components – e.g., A or B pillars, side intrusion beams or door frame reinforcements – by press-hardening technology. Moreover, suspension parts of forged aluminum are being used increasingly.
For these applications we supply automotive manufacturers and their suppliers with the appropriate heat treatment systems, acting on behalf of our parent company, schwartz GmbH. We thus help in a major way to ensure that modern vehicles can be made safer and more eco-friendly.
For more information on our heat treatment equipment for press hardening lines and for aluminum applications see here.

In addition, we supply purpose-built equipment for various heat treatment tasks, whether for nonferrous metals, aluminum, steel, iron or powder metals, for use in the chemical and recycling industries, for brazing, and for general-purpose heat treatment requirements.
