Precision is key
What do a modern die manufacturing company and a traditional jewelry manufacturer from the early 20th century have in common? The answer is found by taking a look behind the curtains at GEDIA Gebrüder Dingerkus GmbH of Attendorn in the Sauerland region of Germany.
Die manufacturer GEDIA can look back on a history of more than 100 years. When brothers Anselm and Ferdinand Dingerkus founded Gebrüder Dingerkus in 1910, they initially produced jewelry. Over time, they expanded their portfolio to include hollow sheet-metal handles, enamel cookware and plastic handles. In the mid '50s, the focus moved toward die manufacturing: The company has been manufacturing pressed, stamped and drawn parts since 1955. Today, GEDIA primarily develops and produces structural parts and assemblies for lightweight auto body construction and chassis components. Its customers include 15 international OEMs. Whether it is producing jewelry or parts for today's highly competitive automotive industry, the company has remained true to its high standard for precision work right from the start. The GEDIA Automotive Group, which has 4,200 employees globally and is still 100 percent family-owned, owes much of its success to these quality features, which have characterized its history. The company currently has 112 employees in die manufacturing in Germany.
To reduce our collision rate to zero and to simultaneously save time-consuming checking after postprocessing, we used a simulation with millimeter accuracy of the machine model and the tools in the virtual world. Only Tebis was able to do this.
