Process expertise of the technology leader

Feintool is a process provider. We are proficient in all the critical and necessary processes for manufacturing large volumes of sophisticated, cost and weight-optimized components.

Production processes

Fineblanking and transforming are our core competencies. In the case of transforming processes, depending on the required forming levels and properties, we differentiate between:

  • Cold forming
  • Cold rolling
  • Axial rolling
  • Flow pressing
  • Orbital forming, etc.

In addition to these key processes, we are also proficient in

  • Heat treatment processes, such as gas nitriding, induction hardening and nitrocarburizing
  • Profile and double-disc grinding
  • Machining operations
  • Laser welding

We always deliver cost-effective, ready-to-install components for our customers.

Simulation and Prototyping

Our simulation-based feasibility studies lead to faster development of fineblanking- and forming-capable, as well as material-optimized part design. This is an important prerequisite for low part costs. Our specialists help simulate your ideas and improve on them until we achieve the optimum results for the tool and the parts.

Prototypes of parts in the early phases of project development help you identify possible weaknesses by way of methodical checks under real-life conditions. They are eliminated and retested in the next step. Similarly, we also investigate the ability to produce the parts cost-effectively. Our prototyping perfects the design of the parts and their functions in a way that saves time and costs – ideal conditions to ensure a rapid start to series production.


A cost-effective production process requires the interaction of component design, tool development and manufacturing concept. Feintool creates the solutions, from tool design through to risk analysis and a layout for the entire manufacturing process. This integrated approach creates highly efficient production concepts.


Feintool manufactures over a hundred tools every year. Multi-stage tools are considered standard at Feintool. They cut, form and deburr in a single process. In this way sophisticated components can be produced in a single operation. Production becomes more cost-effective as the number of follow-up operations decreases. One process enables the tool to coin burrs by means of an integrated function. That means that the parts are fineblanked and deburred in the same tool.

Quality management

Feintool has established a quality management system that starts in the development and bid phase, and that provides intensive project support through to the start of production. Individual operations are systematically monitored and documented during series production. Standardized improvement programs secure and optimize production. All the Feintool plants comply with quality standards ISO 9001, ISO TS 16949 and ISO 14001. In some cases, energy management in accordance with ISO 50001 has already been introduced and implemented.
