Hufschmied Zerspanungssysteme for the automotive industry

The times when cars, trucks and motorcycles were only supposed to offer performance and design are long gone. Hardly any other industry today is under such high pressure to innovate as the automotive industry. “Energy efficiency” is the key requirement. This means that every single component is smaller, lighter and more stable. Hufschmied knows these requirements and the very special dynamics - for decades. Together with you, we research innovative, lightweight materials, highly efficient CAD/CAM processes, high-speed machining and the tools optimized for this. So that you can prove again and again that the art of engineering is an art: what was unthinkable yesterday will roll off the assembly line tomorrow.

Just like the use of motor vehicles, the manufacture of components for the automotive industry also follows the principle of maximum efficiency. The competitive conditions demand a high production speed with consistently high quality and the lowest possible costs.

Specialized machining processes.

Hufschmied offers high-end cutting tools that meet exactly these requirements. The high feed rates and the long service lives of our milling cutters and drills significantly optimize the production of engineering components in the automotive sector.

Hufschmied Ultrasonic Blades for Airbags –
Safety also during processing

For safe and precise processing of airbag systems Hufschmied Carbide cutting blades developed. They offer a high level of precision and safety when cutting the artificial skins used, especially when the tear edges are not visible.

High-end tools for highly efficient CAD/CAM processes.

Mass-produced steel blades made of spring steel do not meet these requirements. While they are less expensive, they cut highly inaccurately. Power Blades by Hufschmied on the other hand, increase process reliability and meet the safety requirements, the required short service life and accuracy of the automotive industry 100 percent. The possibility of individually labeling our solid carbide blades (VHM) with QR codes also ensures complete traceability.

The lifespan of the Hufschmied Blades are 10 to 20 times higher than mass-produced steel blades. This means that our precision tools are the more cost-effective solution after just a short time. The solid carbide version also ensures extreme service life with the highest cutting quality. The long cycle times make almost uninterrupted production in series operation possible for airbag cuts.

body parts with Hufschmied milling – precision in series

For the precise processing of body parts for the automotive industry Hufschmied material-optimized carbide cutters developed. The Fiber-Line drilling and milling tools deliver optimal results when roughing and finishing CFRP, GFRP and SMC. They guarantee a perfect edge quality that does not require any post-processing.

Hufschmieds patented high-performance cutting tools for CFRP and GFRP processing are ideal for carbon milling.

Precise high-performance machining of innovative, energy-efficient lightweight materials.

For the overall result when processing CFRP, GFRP and SMC Hufschmied first place in the TU Wien benchmark test in 2013.

Edit vehicle interior –
reported Hufschmied to pleasing results

For use in the interior of automobiles, for example for decorative components, light guides and head-up displays Hufschmied special HSC (High Speed ​​Cutting) milling cutters in the program. These material-related cutting tools from the Sharp Line are ideal for high-gloss finishes and the machining of soft plastics or soft aluminum on high-speed machining centers, such as those used in the production of interior components.

High speed machining at high feed rates.

194/ 195 – T Rex

automotive exterior

  • Delamination-free cut edges in CFRP and GFRP
  • Maximum service life thanks to coordinated diamond coatings (DIP®)
  • Highest feeds without loss of quality
  • Highest abrasion resistance
  • Chip-free processing even with loose top and bottom layers
  • Special toothing types also available for thermoplastic, CFRP and GFRP materials
  • The peeling geometry generates chips that can be easily extracted and are therefore also suitable for energy-saving extraction systems

→ T-Rex tools reduce the manufacturing costs by at least 35% in CFRP and GFRP
