Punching / Laser cutting

For years, our company has been cutting highly complex shapes from sheet metal using the laser or punching machines. The parts designed by our engineering team are produced at high speed and with the highest possible accuracy. In order to manufacture as efficiently as possible and to ensure short delivery times, our laser and punching machines are equipped with automatic loading and unloading stations. This also enables us to run unmanned shifts.

Bending

Another core competence is the forming of sheet metal by bending and rounding. Modern machines from various manufacturers enable us to bend and round parts in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and precision requirements. By using modern software, angle deviations caused by different material qualities and wall thicknesses of the sheets can be automatically regulated. Combined with our employees’ many years of experience in the bending area, we produce the highest quality even for complex components.

Welding

That lasts for eternity! Metallic workpieces can be joined by various methods. Welding as a material-locking connection is one of the most stable connections. With our fully equipped welding stations, we process structural steel, stainless steel and aluminium alloys using all common methods. In addition to MIG, MAG and TIG, we are also able to offer spot, projection, stud and laser welding.

Our welding areas are certified according to ISO 3834-2:2005 and DIN EN 15085-2 CL1. For small and large and large quantities, we weld on two robots with MIG and MAG. These guarantee the permanently high quality we are used to.

Laser welding

The machine can weld steel sheets up to 50 mm thick and aluminium sheets up to 6 mm thick. High speed and high precision are the main advantages of laser welding technology. The robot arm can guide welding seams at feed speeds of up to 10 m/min (!). Minimal heat is applied to the component, resulting in virtually no thermal distortion. In some cases, through-welded seams without welding additives no longer need to be reworked. As a result, high optical requirements are often elegantly realised.

Our laser can also be used for solder joints. This makes it possible to join different metals.

Our systems are excellently suited for small as well as large quantities and high demands on precision. We weld dimensions with a weld seam of a few millimetres up to components with a size of 13x3x3m. We can achieve shape and position tolerances of 0.1mm.

Non-ferrous metals processing

With the latest generation of solid-state lasers, it is possible to cut thin stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, as well as highly reflective materials such as copper, brass, titanium and their alloys. These capabilities are absolutely competitive with waterjet cutting.

Copper and brass up to a sheet thickness of 6 mm and titanium up to a sheet thickness of 4 mm can be easily cut into all desired shapes and the surface can be engraved.

The further processing of the blanks with 15 bending machines offers almost every possibility of shaping.

The assembly, whether by riveting, screwing or gluing, of complex assemblies is guaranteed by our assembly team. We are able to join various non-ferrous metals using the two processes of laser soldering or laser welding.

Bonding and Sealing

Increasing demands on our products in terms of quality, cost, design and weight require more than ever the bonding process as an alternative joining method. This joining process has the following major advantages compared to screws, rivets or welding:

  • Practically all materials can be joined together without damaging them, e.g. by drilling holes or applying heat.
  • Gluing creates invisible and elegant connections
  • Due to the surface bonding, hardly any punctual loads arise
  • This means that load-bearing components can be designed in lightweight or sandwich construction.

As an innovative company, we have all the space and personnel required to design and implement adhesive bonding with the highest quality and safety standards. With our adhesive engineer and his team, we offer the following services:

  • New developments, construction support or optimization of components that have or should have bonded joints
  • Carrying out adhesive bonding in our specially built bonding halls by professional and experienced personnel
  • The quality of our bonded joints can be permanently and verifiably ensured through internal testing equipment and cooperation with external testing laboratories
  • With the class A1 certificate of competence according to DIN 6701-2, all bonded joints for rail vehicles can be designed and produced.

Infrastructure of Schlegel AG: 1000 sqm production area, 8 skilled workers in the field of bonding.
