Sheet Metal Forming

Hörnlein supplies assemblies and systems. The production of individual parts must already be oriented toward the end product so that it can be carried out with the highest quality and efficiency. Hörnlein is proficient in the manufacturing process for the widest variety of types of individual parts. Its most important stages are forming and cutting. Everything is done in-house on more than 25,000 square metres of production space.

Deep Drawing

Hörnlein has mastered the technology of deep drawing. Things which were usually seen as inconceivable are standard with us. Deep drawing is used to form sheet metal into a part in multiple stages on a forming press. Our precision and speed. are unique. 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 most cases. Special processes are used at Hörnlein which make follow-up machining unnecessary.

Technology

Progressive and transfer presses with up to 21 stations

Press capacity

63 t to 630 t

Processable Materials

Non-alloyed, alloyed and stainless steel as well as non-ferrous metals, primarily aluminium

Material thickness

0,4 mm to 4 mm

Stamping

Numerous stamped parts are used in automotive assemblies. Hörnlein is proficient in even complex stamp outlines and the stamping of curved metal sheets. Deep drawing and stamping are often performed in sequential steps in a system. Additional stations for stamping can be added. The unique Hörnlein technology makes it possible to avoid post-production machining in this area as well, which entails significant cost benefits. We develop and manufacture all the stamping tools ourselves.

Machining

Materials which are intended to be well malleable are very difficult to cut. Hörlein owns ultramodern processing centres and has many years of experience in the finishing of stamped as well as deep drawn parts and pipes. The aim of Hörnlein's development is to always avoid the post-production machining of formed parts and tubes because each additional work step causes costs. If machining processes are nevertheless required then these will be integrated into the production value stream by our expert machining team.
