These days, precision parts for the automotive industry, aviation and mechanical engineering are under continuous pricing pressure. With a view of noticeable cost-savings compared to the classical turned parts manufacturing, Flaig + Hommel perfected the cold forming technique and so offered completely new prospects for the cost-conscious buyer. Depending on batch size and component, notable cost-savings can be achieved on batches starting from 100.000 pieces. The technique is suitable for a number of steels, constructional steels, specialist steels, stainless steels as well as heat resistant steels, aluminium and copper.
With the Flaig + Hommel cold forming process, over 25% of costs can often be saved compared to conventional turned parts production.
Economic advantages can be achieved from a batch size starting at approx. 100,000 pieces.
Maximum flexibility in terms of material selection and shaping are the strengths of Flaig + Hommel.

The cold forming process offers the possibility to combine several components of an assembly in a single workpiece.
With the cold forming technology, we are able to realize function-specific embossing on the components, directly during pressing.
The cold forming technology provides a significant reduction of material waste and proves to be particularly efficient.
YOUR BENEFITS AT FLAIG+HOMMEL
Even for precision-parts with a tolerance of up to 0.025 mm in diameter and up to 0.2 mm in length the Flaig + Hommel cold forming technique is highly suitable.
Our ultra-modern design department works with the CAD-software ProEngineer which is compatible with CATIA, the other software used by the automotive industry. This means that we can often do without time-consuming project discussions. It is often enough, to send us a draft with your relevant product-data which our team will then analyze and from which we will develop the engineering drawing of the product – inclusive of the appropriate production method. The proposals are being presented via electronic data interchange and final results can be put into practice in very little time.
The early utilization of the achievement potential of all partners involved in the early stages of the development process of a new product gains more and more importance.
Whereas the supplier used to not get involved in the innovation-process until after the actual contract has been awarded, our team today places great importance on the suppliers’ involvement in the process right from the start of a project.
This allows us to exploit the full optimization-potential where choice of material and production process is concerned.
Starting from the development-phase, our team creates close-to-production prototypes suitable for endurance testing in real terms.
The result is: An accelerated innovation process in conjunction with reduced costs.
14 ultra-modern cold forming presses are the basis for adherence to delivery dates even on highest batch sizes.
Decades of experience on the part of our technicians and operators combined with a consistent quality assurance system spell success for you.
