Automotive - innovative processes for innovative components

Saving energy, increasing comfort - two key elements for car design. For the parts to be straightened, these aspects present the following challenges:

  • The parts are lighter and more delicate,
  • Other materials are used, e.g. aluminum instead of steel,
  • The parts are hollow and thin-walled, thus challenging for the straightening process,
  • New parts are straightened due to new manufacturing methods, e.g. structured aluminum parts,
  • Motor and gear shafts that transmit torque require excellent run-out precision, in gears for instance.


MAE has embraced these challenges and offers efficient solutions...

… for shafts, hollow shafts, pipes and complex structural parts (cast iron),
… with extreme accuracy: TRILOS, a high-resolution laser system for measuring gears.
