Dear Customers, dear Business Partners,
“Hard times will always reveal true friends”... so the saying goes. And there is certainly some truth in it! In times of corona, this is particularly evident. Every day, the prognoses and the measures derived from them change. All market participants have been gripped by huge uncertainty, and only one thing is for sure: The next 12 months will not be easy - for any of us.
Currently, there is no end in sight - neither in…
“Hot irons” (or more precisely for Hirschvogel: cold and warm forged steel components, too) are topics that we like internally – but particularly those that customers are already concretely working together with us on. In other words, those proposals that have already received tangible positive feedback in the form of series orders or paid developments. We would like to report on some of these “hot irons” here, though naturally we will not mention any customer names or project…
Flexibility in All Size Ranges
Hirschvogel has been a strong partner in the production of ready-for-assembly rotor shafts for electric traction motors in the automotive sector for many years now. Our specialty lies in hollow rotor shafts, which are called off in high annual volumes by our customers. However, even for small quantities and for different power ratings, we can optimally adapt to the needs of our customers thanks to the production processes available.
The headquarters of the Denso Group in Kariya, Japan, has presented Hirschvogel with the “Quality Contribution Award” for the following special achievements:
Hirschvogel has been operating single-stage warm forging presses with drawing cushion technology for a long time now. These highly productive machines are used primarily for high-pressure diesel injection components, such as camshafts and cylinder heads for diesel pumps as well as injector bodies.
Due to the existing expertise in large serial production on these presses and the consistently high quality achieved, it made sense to find additional components for this…
As system complexity in hybrid powertrains increases, so does the number of components required, thereby causing the costs for these systems to rise. This applies to the costs per unit, logistics costs as well as to investments in development and tools.
An effective way of countering these cost increases is to reduce the number of components and suppliers and to eliminate manufacturing steps.…
The steadily increasing number of electrified powertrains in passenger cars and in the commercial vehicle sector worldwide is a long-term issue for the supply industry. Hirschvogel is also facing up to this challenge and has been working intensively for several years on powertrain components for electric and hybrid vehicles in order to actively shape this change.
The rotor shaft as the heart of the electric motor is a particular focus…
