Tool design & tool manufacturing
All components as well as all tools required for component production are developed, designed and manufactured by SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES in-house:
- Product design
- Tool design
- Construction and production of pre and/or series tools
- Design and manufacturing of automated production devices
SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES develops on the latest CAD / CAM systems, such as VISI CAD / CAM in 3D. Tool design can be done on the basis of provided data or completely by our specialists – from tool design to prototyping and tool manufacturing. In the field of massive forming, we use a special simulation software.
Concept & Design
You have a rough idea of the product, but you lack the concrete ideas for the realization? SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES creates the necessary concept for your new product - design proposals and sketches included. At the same time, SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES advises on expected component production times, optics and cost-effectiveness.
After completing the 3D design, SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES gladly provides prototypes upon request. By means of 3D printing, HSC milling, thermoforming or other suitable rapid prototyping methods, products can be realized and evaluated before mass production.
The in-house tool design of SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES develops the necessary tools using the latest CAD / CAM systems. Even the most complicated shapes can be generated quickly and easily. Speed in terms of product development and tool design will be increased - the entire development time will be reduced to series maturity.
In-house tooling enables short distances; Processes can be quickly adapted and optimized. SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES thus enables the highest quality and at the same time economical implementation - in tool production as well as component manufacturing.
Cost efficiency realized by in-house toolmaking
The in-house toolmaking department of SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES enables rapid development and manufacturing of necessary production tools. Unnecessary coordination processes with external suppliers can be effectively eliminated. All tools and tooling are cost-effectively designed and manufactured:
- Complete production of all forming tools
- Forming tools
- Tools for cold extrusion
- Pressing tools
- Progressive composite dies
- Punching tools
- Bending tools
- Design, manufacture and die sinking of electrodes
- Hard machining of mold inserts, punches and dies
- Die sinking and grinding of provided parts
- Prototype tools
- Automation equipment
As specialist in manufacturing of advanced complex copper components for small and large series, SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES is very familiar with the design and manufacturing of the most compley tools and devices.
The machinery of the SCHWEIZER TECHNOLOGIES is optimally equipped for complex tool production as well as for the production of simpler components where time-to-market is the decisive criterion. Modern grinding, die sinking and milling machines enable short production times, the reduction of lead times and thus fast and customer-oriented order processing.
