The latest production methods at HMT
In order to meet the ever-increasing requirements of the automotive industry with regard to precision, quantities, material mix and short delivery times, suppliers must adapt to new developments every single day, and develop appropriate strategies and solutions.
Lean management with structured processes and slim production flows are required - without compromising on quality and reliability.
HMT is already focussed on achieving this, and is constantly making further developments.
At our locations in Germany, Poland, and Mexico, we boast the latest machines and systems as well as expertly trained and qualified personnel for implementing production methods such as welding and lasering, punching and pressing, joining and bonding in state-of-the-art quality.
In particular, we pay special attention to the multi-material mix that is so important in lightweight construction - so the safe joining of aluminium and steel to create complex part structures.
Our range of methods include the following:
- MAG and MIG welding
- Laser welding
- Toxing and clinching
- Flow drilling
- Punch riveting
- Wobble riveting
We have a machine pool that covers the following features and production possibilities, among others:
- Pressing forces from 600 to 10,000 kN
- Table sizes up to 4,500 x 2,200 mm
- Thread forming in a punching process
- Clinching in a punching process
- Application of punching nuts
The HMT experts always keep an eye on current technical developments in production methods. Close collaboration with manufacturers and with the many partners from our global network also contributes to this.
