Deep drawing

Hörnlein has perfected the technology of deep drawing. Things which were inconceivable yesterday are standard with us today. Deep drawing is used to form sheet metal into a part in multiple stages on a forming press. Hörnlein's special features are its precision and speed. How precise? Do you think that tolerances of the width of a human hair are small? We are even more precise!

Deep drawing enables thin-walled hollow constructions typical for automotive assemblies to be efficiently manufactured. We work with such high precision that post-production machining can be avoided in many cases. Some parts look as though they underwent additional post-production machining - but they didn't! Special processes are used at Hörnlein which make follow-up machining unnecessary.

That is a secret which gives us great pride. Hörnlein develops and manufactures the forming tools itself.
