Toolmaking construction and special machines directly informed by engineering: We work with all common software programs, such as Visi, SolidWorks or Unigraphics to ensure seamless communication. Highly qualified design engineers execute the tools step by step and prepare the CAD data which is then directly transferred to the CAM. At Härter, all the relevant technical departments are already involved at the design stage so that execution is rapid and fabrication processes are optimal. Because only in this way can all of the product requirements be implemented down to the last detail.
Based on a detailed work schedule, we define the individual fabrication components. Thanks to single component tracking across the entire ERP system, we know which component is where at which step in the assembly at any time. Our integrated competence enables us to cover the entire process chain. The Härter machinery plant is arranged for all fabrication steps in both soft and hard metal processing of single components and plates. And the ERP system ensures accurate capacity planning and reliable, on-track scheduling of a project.
Toolmaking is one of the core competencies at Härter. 180 highly qualified employees, most of whom have been trained at Härter, have many years of experience. Depending on the complexity of the product, 500 to 1,000 individual components may be assembled based on CAD drawings. Matched to every detail and prepared for a seamless manufacturing process.
High-precision tools over the entire range, from one-module tools to progressive die stamping tools with lengths up to three meters: Härter has a complete machinery plant to manufacture almost any tool. This includes the adaption of multiple processes in the stamping tool, such as feeding multiple strips, wires, rivets, bolts, pins and washers or thread shapes in the stamping process. Test presses of up to 500 tons press force are available for testing tools.
Once the first part has been produced, Härter prepares the ISTR (Initial Sample Test Report). This analysis report is standard quality documentation. And of course we also use the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) along with the initial sample inspection. We use a 2D and 3D measuring system internationally.
