Cutting tools and machining strategies for automotive and engines

Tool solutions for the mobility of tomorrow

The automotive industry is facing one of the biggest changes in its history. Aspects such as lightweight construction, electrification of drive systems or new concepts for increasing efficiency make vehicle development more challenging than ever. For that reason, it is good to be able to rely on a strong partner who has the right tools and strategies for every single vehicle component. We are ready to face the mobility challenges of tomorrow with maximum innovation and expertise and by working closely with our customers. 

An unconditional service promise, wide-ranging expertise – in smart factory concepts for example – and a firm focus on special-purpose, customer-specific solutions make us the ideal project partner for automobile manufacturers worldwide.

Powertrain

Whether it is a conventional vehicle with combustion engine, a hybrid, or one powered by a fuel cell or battery,
the machining tasks on the powertrain are as varied as the tool solutions that we have to offer. We are the driving force behind efficient production. 

→ Power-efficient turbo direct injection engines for maximum efficiency

→ Force transmission with uninterrupted power flow between the engine and powertrain

→ Compensation for the moment of inertia with a combustion engine

Chassis

Lightweight concepts combined with the ultimate in ride comfort call for alternative processes when it comes to machining. We develop solutions so that new materials can also be machined with maximum precision, quality and efficiency. 

→ Holds the tyre, which is in contact with the road

→ The energy from the unsprung mass is absorbed and dissipated

→ Brakes the vehicle as quickly as possible until it comes to a stop

Take advantage of our customer-specific service solutions that truly make the difference

Your projects in the best possible hands

From expert advice and detailed project development to smooth implementation, our project engineering service will provide you with the ideal solution to meet your specific needs. Let our interdisciplinary expert team implement a customised solution for your projects. 

Full process control – with ToolScope digital monitoring

With the ToolScope monitoring and assistance system, we have paved the way for the digital future of machining. The system continuously records signals from the machine during the production process and monitors factors such as tool wear. This guarantees maximum process control. 

Master complex contours and tight tolerances

Complex contours, tighter tolerances and rapidly changing product life cycles require flexible manufacturing concepts. With the programmable KomTronic U-axis systems, we offer intelligent actuating tools that enable turning operations to be performed on parts that are not rotationally symmetrical. Coupled with customised snap-on tools and specially selected indexable inserts, these systems give you an unrestricted level of flexibility.
