Advanced Products

From raw material to finished products

STIWA is the right part­ner when it comes to ser­i­al pro­duc­tion. Expe­ri­enced and equipped with know-how in impor­tant pro­duc­tion tech­nolo­gies like laser weld­ing, injec­tion mold­ing, punch­ing and assem­bly. We have all rel­e­vant tech­nolo­gies for cost effi­cient and high qual­i­ty pro­duc­tion. The machine park of STIWA is ready for the pro­duc­tion of your products.

We focus on the needs of the auto­mo­tive indus­try. We pro­duce high-grade prod­ucts with extra­or­di­nary require­ments on qual­i­ty: the ver­ti­cal inte­gra­tion ranges from press­ing tech­nique, cold form­ing with trans­fer tools or fol­low-on com­pos­ite tools, injec­tion mold­ing and laser weld­ing up to ful­ly auto­mat­ed assem­bly of com­plete components.

We devel­op the automa­tion soft­ware in-house which clos­es the loop from mate­r­i­al logis­tics and process tech­nol­o­gy to qual­i­ty assur­ance and high per­for­mance automation.

For an effi­cient pro­duc­tion of high-grade ser­i­al parts and com­po­nents it’s essen­tial to man­age devel­op­ment, process tech­nol­o­gy and pro­duc­tion. Our strength are closed loops in-house which ensure fast reac­tion on changes.

Production Technologies

There are many rea­sons why STIWA is suc­cess­ful on dynam­ic mar­kets. One is par­al­lel devel­op­ment of prod­uct and process with meth­ods like DoE (Design of Exper­i­ments) and FMEA (Fail­ure Mode and Effects Analy­sis), anoth­er is the flex­i­ble auto­mat­ed high per­for­mance automa­tion, a com­bi­na­tion of CIM (com­put­er-inte­grat­ed man­u­fac­tur­ing) and lean production.

Our strength is the pro­duc­tion on high per­for­mance STIWA machines with assem­bly tech­nolo­gies com­bin­ing short­est cycle time with high quality.

STIWA key com­pe­ten­cies are:

  • Laser weld­ing
  • Injec­tion molding
  • Punch­ing / stamping
  • Hard­en­ing by laser treat­ment, ultra­son­ic weld­ing, vibra­to­ry fin­ish­ing etc.

The qual­i­ty of effi­cient high per­for­mance automa­tion is based on the inte­gra­tion of these tech­nolo­gies in the pro­duc­tion net­work, a total qual­i­ty man­age­ment and auto­mat­ed logistics.

STIWA is a com­pe­tent part­ner from prod­uct design, cre­ation of arche­types, pro­to­types and small series with part­ly auto­mat­ed man­u­fac­tur­ing up to ful­ly auto­mat­ed pro­duc­tion on large assem­bly lines. The degree of automa­tion grows par­al­lel to increas­ing lot sizes. Your pro­duc­tion ben­e­fits from the com­pe­ten­cies of STIWA Group.

Precision tools for high performance production

Our in-house tool shop is spe­cial­ized on plan­ning, start-up, sup­port and opti­miza­tion of com­pos­ite and trans­fer tools. The tools are applic­a­ble to press­es with a capac­i­ty of 250t to 800t. Those press­es run with STIWA soft­ware and punch pre­ci­sion parts of high-strength met­al plates from 1mm to 6mm.

The high qual­i­ty punch­ing parts meet all require­ments for auto­mat­ic pro­cess­ing.  Low­est pos­si­ble oil­ing lev­el, clean edges and tight tol­er­ances are just some of these requirements.

The punch­ing process is part of the pro­duc­tion process through our core com­pe­tences in tool mak­ing. Tool mak­ing and pro­toyp­ing are inte­grat­ed in the pro­duc­tion process and guar­an­tee high process sta­bil­i­ty and long lifetimes.

New quality standards

Con­trol of all process­es is the key to high-qual­i­ty pro­duc­tion. First we need to knowwhy a process is required — before think­ing about how to imple­ment it. Beside assem­bly, STIWA has the know-how and expe­ri­ence to inte­grate tech­nolo­gies like laser weld­ing, punch­ing and injec­tion mold­ing in process quality.

With the help of mature soft­ware analy­sis tools high per­for­mance man­u­fac­tur­ing gains a high basic qual­i­ty. Inter­na­tion­al cer­tifi­cates con­firm high qual­i­ty stan­dards of our prod­ucts and our man­age­ment systems.

We not only meet high qual­i­ty stan­dards (e.g. of auto­mo­tive sec­tor) — we even set new stan­dards for qual­i­ty of production.
