Method Planning & Design 

metalform - 1 Method Plan

We use the method plan as the basis for designing our tools. In terms of manufacturing on a technical level, the results of the method plan give precise information on board deployment, strip feeds, strip width and process forces, for example. Using these, the production processes can then be optimally determined.
We generate our method plans and strip plans using the CAD systems. The methods are checked via a forming simulation.

Tool Design

Thanks to our extensive detailed knowledge and the perfect mastery of the various software, we are able to optimally design extremely complex tools. We generate our method plans and strip plans using the CAD systems. The methods are checked via a forming simulation.

FEAD / specializes in the following tools (die types).
Prototypes, Progressive, Robotic lines, Transfer lines, Cross-bar lines, HTL-lines

    Tool Manufacturing 

    metalform - 2 Innovative and optimised

    The tool shop specialises in making progressive dies, follow-on dies and transfer dies for steel and aluminium car body panels. Our long-standing and satisfied customer list include leading names like FORD and TOYOTA. We make dies with gross weights of up to about 20 tonnes for deep drawing, die cutting and pressing.

    Modern data processing

    We use various CAD/CAM programs to work with our customers and business partners. Products which are almost ready to go into production and prototypes can be tried out and accepted on the hydraulic and mechanical presses on our own premises. The proximity of the tool shop to our production facilities guarantees efficient workflow processes - which is also an advantage when it comes to the maintenance of our production equipment.

    Quality Management 

    metalform - 3 High precision quality and service without compromise

    We are aware that the success of our products is directly linked to the satisfaction of our customers. It is therefore our greatest wish to comprehensively fulfil the demands of our customers with respect to quality, punctuality and pricing.

    In order to meet with the associated requirements in this regard, we implement a quality management system that conforms to a wide range of national and international standards. Our employees work constantly on adhering to and continuously improving this system.

    Serial Production 

    metalform - 4 Schedule and capacity management

    The production of car body parts depends on more than high-performance machinery. This is taken for granted by our customers in the automotive industry. It is more about keeping strict control of the production orders and juggling the deadlines with the available staff and machine capacities with meticulous precision.

    Efficiency instead of insufficiency

    The availability of the tools and dies required for any given order must be guaranteed in order to avoid hold-ups in production. To this end, the tool maintenance engineers liaise closely with the individual project teams at FEAD. We achieve the maximum possible efficiency in the production processes by analysing operations and factoring in key ratios, such as batch sizes, lead time reduction and the number of tool changeovers.
