  • Summary:
    A German SME specialized in manufacturing wire bending parts and springs is offering manufacturing and subcontracting agreements to industry and research partners in Switzerland and the EU (with a particular focus on Poland).
  • Description:
    A German SME with more than 100 years of experience in manufacturing three-dimensional wire bending parts and springs (precision, tensile, compression and torsion springs), is offering to produce prototypes and serial products (duplicate parts) under manufacturing and subcontracting agreements. The company is looking for partners from industry and research in Switzerland and the EU (with a particular focus on Poland).
    The company is specialized in designing, developing and producing prototypes, as well as in mass production. The production range varies from one piece in prototype production up to mass production by the millions. The thickness of the material to be produced can range from 0.05 mm to 6 mm.
    Based on the different requirements of each client, the quality control of the different products is individually agreed and contracted.
    In all projects, the company offers individual advice to its customers, resulting in significant cost and time savings for the customer.
    The company is already producing for leading companies from the aerospace, medical technology, telecommunications, security and building as well as from the transport technology sector and is looking for new project partners and long-term cooperation agreements.

    Examples of the company's products are:
    - In the aerospace sector, the company's precision springs are used in emergency ventilation systems in aircrafts (to provide safety of personnel and passengers in case of a drop of cabin pressure).
    - In the security sector, the company's precision springs are used in respirators for firefighters and in the mining industry (to ensure safety of emergency personnel). Precision springs made of non-magnetic material are used in ventilation systems for divers (to ensure safety underwater).
    - In the medical technology sector, the company's precision springs are used inside cardiac pacemakers (to ensure safety of cardiac patients).
    - In the telecommunications sector, the company's precision springs are used for telephone contacts to connect to battery chargers.

    The company is offering both manufacturing agreements as well as subcontracting activities for foreign partners in the field of wire-bending parts and springs.
    For manufacturing agreements, the company is looking for companies and research organisations to manufacture according to the individual needs of the potential partner (e.g. prototypes for research organisations to carry out research experiments, or mass production for other SMEs or larger companies).
    For subcontracting agreements, the company is open to act as subcontractor for other companies (SMEs or larger companies) to produce wire bending parts or springs according to the contractual arrangements.
    The company is looking for international business and technology partners as they would like to enter into new partnerships with European companies to extend their application fields as well as their business activities on foreign markets.

  • Advantages and Innovations:
    - Two production sites (one in Berlin, one in Bavaria) with alltogether more than 100 employees are located in Germany. This ensures flexibility and high speed in urgent orders
    - The company has extensive know-how (+100 years of experience) in dealing with many wire-metals such as stainless wire, brass wire, copper-beryllium wire or phynox-wire, as well as with coatings with gold, silver, zinc or palladium.
    - The company has the necessary know-how, machine-park - for example a 3D-16 axis CNC (computerized numeric control) bending centrum -, the human resources and the tool-making expertise to meet their customer needs at highest quality standards level.
    - The company has intensive know-how in different application sectors which facilitates the transfer of knowledge into new application scenarios.
    - The quality of the company's products is confirmed by approvals and certificates of national quality control (in particular DIN EN 9100). Based on its quality control, the company is able to fulfill individual customer requirements at the highest quality standards. For quality testing, a torsion, pull and pressure spring force test, an optical 3D measurement method (accuracy ± 0.002mm) and the Rz-value (average surface roughness) are used.
    - The company's design and manufacturing specialists take care of an economic and efficient consumption of resources.
    - The company is one of only a few companies all over Europe being able to produce very tiny and sophisticated wire bending parts and springs with high quality and hardness
    - Depending on the individual needs (e.g. further industrial processing or end customers), customers can individually select their optimal packaging under a variety of options, such as tape and reel or tray packaging.
    - The company is able to accompany technically sophisticated products from design through development up to mass production.
    - The feasibility of a product is tested at an early stage of the process. This saves costs.
