In 2001, our Swiss customer approached us and needed a special machine for his French end customer from the automotive industry. It should be possible to produce tube pieces for seat belts automatically.
We set to work and built a special machine that can manufacture fully automatically in several steps. First, the tube is fed via a cut-to-length machine. It is blown out from the inside and cleaned. The final forming happens via the wobble riveting process, so that the tube gets a bottom. In the final process, a position and quality check is made via the built-in measuring station. And the tube is finished.
From the first order to the finished delivery, we produced a forming machine in 5 months that ran perfectly and had no problems. Our customer and his end customer were thrilled.
