Machine technology "Made in Germany"

Two different categories of decoupling elements are produced utilizing two different manufacturing technologies: Production of Stripwound Metal Hoses and Gastight Decoupling Elements. 

Both production processes comprise roll-forming operations. The Stripwound Metal Hoses are produced in one fully integrated inline-cutting process that combines forming, laser welding and laser cutting. A unique and proprietary welding operation is performed on the Gastight Decoupling Elements. 

Both operations as well as process technology and tooling have been developed in-house. 

A key success factor in making innovations real is the internal team spirit and the close cooperation between design engineers and production experts during transfer-to-series production. To reach a stable 24/7 operation we turn the daily feedback from the shop floor into process optimization that are then entering the PDCA (plan-do-check-act) loop.
