#HM24 Exhibitor Spotlight – STÜKEN
STÜKEN's core competencies deep-drawing and stamping are characterized by optimal resource utilization and minimal material consumption. Consequently, their products not only meet the high-quality standards of their customers but also conserve vital resources during manufacturing.29 Jan 2024
STÜKEN's precision deep-drawn parts are produced in large quantities on transfer presses and automatic stamping machines. We work with all materials that can be deep-drawn, including common metals such as steel, copper, nickel and aluminum as well as alloys like stainless steel and brass. Special materials such as molybdenum, niobium and titanium are also used.
Our deep-drawn components have outer dimensions of less than 1 mm to a maximum of 92 mm, have tight tolerances in the micrometer range and are available in numerous shapes. STÜKEN products can be found in all branches of industry: from automotive to medical technology, from electronics to devices for daily use. Exceptional quality and precision distinguish us.
Our range of in-house finishing processes, which is unique in the industry, enables us to supply ready-to-use components directly for integration into our customers' production lines. Almost 40 billion high-precision deep-drawn parts are produced annually at the global headquarters in Germany alone.
STÜKEN's core competencies deep-drawing and stamping are characterized by optimal resource utilization and minimal material consumption. Consequently, our products not only meet the high-quality standards of our customers but also conserve vital resources during manufacturing. In comparison to machining processes, deep-drawing minimizes material consumption, and no harmful substances are used. In the production of a typical STÜKEN deep-drawn part, almost 90% of all CO₂ emissions are attributed to the raw material. Therefore, deep-drawing is a relatively resource-efficient process.
Digitization also plays an important role: Intelligent process and manufacturing simulations enable a noticeably more efficient use of resources. The application of the Finite Element Method (FEM) and a digital twin can lead to cost reductions and accelerated processes. Through our design models, we can simulate the real twin's behavior, functionality, and quality from all relevant perspectives. Obtaining design feedback before creating initial physical prototypes is a significant advantage in terms of speed.
The many and rapid changes in areas such as mobility, sustainability and energy policy mean that our customers increasingly rely on the expertise of their suppliers. We are a long-term, strategic partner for our customers. Our innovative strength plays a central role in this. We are very active in research and development. Monitoring the development of new materials enables us to constantly expand our range of deep-drawn parts and thus supply our customers with components for new and innovative applications.
With strategic foresight, we invest in our buildings, production facilities, storage technology and transportation systems. In doing so, we take advantage of the opportunities and potentials presented by digitalization and automation. This enables us to offer our customers excellent quality, short delivery times and a high degree of flexibility. STÜKEN has five production sites on three continents and can therefore manufacture and finish products locally. The advantages of this “local-for-local” strategy are obvious: transport routes are shorter, supply chains are more secure and more flexible. We analyze and optimize the entire production process in order to emit less and less climate-damaging CO2.
Deep drawing can generate cost benefits, especially for large quantities, and represents an attractive alternative to turning, for example, and other machining processes. Added to this is our range of in-house finishing processes, which is unique in the industry and which we continuously develop further. All of this enables us to offer our customers ever new, better and more efficient solutions. Our goal is to inspire our customers in the long term with innovations and the creation of new added value.
