Dies

Specialist in exterior car body shell parts – the absolute ultimate

The exterior shell of a car body must be perfect, and when painted must not exhibit any direct unevenness. We therefore like to talk of the "absolute ultimate in automotive engineering". Dies must be constructed, which guarantee this high level of manufacturing quality can also be reproduced in volume manufacturing – a standard only achievable with mature die construction expertise.

Forming Dies - from conception to dies with production maturity

thyssenkrupp Automotive Body Solutions dies are highly valued because we are specialists in exterior shell parts as well as complex structure parts. We are able to produce high quality sheet metal forming dies for car body parts from steel and aluminum materials, as well as from high and extra high strength materials.

We master metal forming in all its facets – from component development and simultaneous engineering to the production of die sets for mass production. Needed forming dies are globally sourced, and our supplier management is primarily reflected in cost savings for our customers.

We have a lot of experience in add-on parts such as doors and hatches and can bring our extensive expertise, particularly when it comes to the integration of a whole system into the body shell.

How to shape quality

Certificates

One of our core competencies is the construction of challenging dies. This is what top manufacturing quality is based on. About 300 highly skilled employees work on perfecting the manufacture of die sets for series production of medium to large body parts, not to mention the manufacture of parts for hydroforming and prototyping.

Worldwide known dies

thyssenkrupp Automotive Body Solutions dies are well known worldwide. With good reasons: Not only do we specialize in parts for the external body shell, but also in complex structural partscomponents. We have the capability to manufacture high quality sheet metal forming dies for car body parts which are will be made of steel or aluminum, or even of high and extra high strength materials.

We are fully familiar with all kinds of metal forming: This covers the development of components (also including Simultaneous Engineering), the manufacture of die sets for series production, as well as matching of components/add-on parts or for complete body shells.

Service

Our service offer corresponds our claim for top design and component quality. Special teams ensure smooth global supplier management and global exchange of experience. Quality and efficiency are ensured using methods such as Tryout and Matching. To make sure that the dies remain ready for production, we can handle maintenance “right into the press”.
