In 2014 Feintool was approached by US automotive manufacturer Dayco. The order? Production of a pulley with damper. For a good three years, developers from both companies worked closely together and tinkered with the optimal manufacturing process. It paid off: In 2019 380,000 parts will come off the conveyor belt, with that figure rising to 450,000 in 2020.
Downsizing is one of the trends in car making. An increasing amount of technology capable of enhanced performance is packed into the smallest space. To ensure this functions correctly in the engine or gear box, forming specialists from Feintool System Parts are in high demand. They too are consistently pushing technological boundaries and the limited space available for forming tools. Continue reading The turbo for forming
The Finite Element Method (FEM) simulation supports various phases of tool making at Feintool. By using the simulation, customers receive a tool which is optimized for future production. The results of the simulations offer additional benefits to the process.
