Increased profitability by trusting in the core competence of a world market leader

Rethinking established manufacturing processes and creating significantly optimized solutions - only experts who understand their trade and who can constantly adapt to new and complex requirements can do this. A few years ago, for example, a long-term cooperation started in the American market. As an expert for precision deep-drawn parts, STÜKEN was able to earn the trust of a recognized company from the automotive industry.

Challenge

In the field of fuel systems and engine management, technology is constantly evolving and ecology and economy are decisive drivers. The task for the development team:

  • Design of a one-piece solution to replace a complex assembly of several components.
  • Conversion of a conventional turned part into a cost-efficient deep-drawn part.

Solution

Thanks to our long-term experience in the automotive sector and our technological competence, we were able to achieve a significant simplification of the original customer design. This concerned not only the optimization of the previous production concept, but also the reduction of the costs associated with production. Within a short time, a new component was ready for series production. This solution uses the advantages of the deep-drawing process and enables considerably simpler handling in the subsequent processes. The STÜKEN concept is based on a one-piece design, which eliminates the need for previously necessary welding and assembly processes and enables considerable savings to be made.
