High clean-cut proportions on thick-wall components are an area of expertise of Messrs. Dömer. On its 1,000 ton Schmid fine-blanking press Dömer manufactures a component for securing the trailer hitch to the vehicle body. In order to be able to further machine the component in automated manner in the succeeding assembly process, it is necessary that the approx. 3.5 kg component of 6 mm material has a clean-cut proportion of up to 90 % and that it meets high precision requirements in respect of the reception holes. These precision requirements are achieved in the complete cut process.
