3D Laser Cutting

In contrast to 2D laser cutting, cubic parts can be cut to fit perfectly with 3D laser cutting. The laser processing of three-dimensional components enables new design possibilities. This allows material-saving construction, and weight optimizations can be realized.

Axis travel range X‑axis 4000 mm Axis travel range Y‑axis 1500 / 2000 mm Axis travel range Z‑axis 750 / 1000 mm Axis travel range B‑axis ± 135 ° Axis travel range C‑axis n x 360 ° Axis travel range Dynamic cutting optic ± 9 mm

Press & Rounds

Metal spinning is a very old craft. Particularly in the production of parts with rotational symmetry - small and medium quantities - metal spinning is superior to other methods. In metal spinning, a sheet metal disc is pressed centrically - with the pre-spinner - against the spinning mold and set in rotary motion. The spinning roll forms the rotating disc stage by stage until the material lies against the spinning mold. The forming process is controlled by two axes. With perfect control of the process, the wall thickness of the material remains constant. In addition to the forming of discs, preformed components such as deep-drawn ones can also be further reduced in diameter by pressing.

Deep drawing

Deep drawing is the tensile compression forming of a sheet metal blank into a hollow body open on one side, or of a pre-drawn hollow body into one with a smaller cross-section, without deliberately changing the sheet thickness. Deep drawing can be used in many different areas. One reason for this is that many metals can be formed using this process, starting with aluminium, brass, copper, sheet steel, stainless and acid resistant alloys, but also heat resistant and various other metal alloys. Deep-drawn parts can be found in the automotive, engineering, aerospace, solar, domestic, energy, chemical and many other industries.

Hydromechanical deep drawing

Hydromechanical deep drawing with our Dieffenbacher enables higher drawing ratios to be achieved than with conventional drawing processes.

Complex geometries, flared tubes, forming intersections, parts with high surface quality, parts from multi-layer sheet metal, prototype production, small and medium series production.

As one of the leading suppliers of hydroforming in Europe and Switzerland, our partner company Egro Industrial Systems AG has a 900-tonne press with 1,000 bar Hydromec pressure. With this press, the range of services can be covered up to a size of 1,400 mm x 1,600 mm.
