Trusted by over 16,000 customers worldwide
By selective partial heating of the blanks in induction plants, we achieve fast, energy-saving and material-conserving heating of all suitable materials.
High temperature resistant components
Quality & Dimensional Accuracy
Material must not suffer, systems must function and connections must deliver what they promise – this is a matter of course for us, even in hot forming.
5 – 50 mm
We process all formable materials, such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloys, high-temperature steels, titanium, and many more in high-performance spindle presses. Standard or special materials – we manufacture according to your drawing.
Depending on the customer’s requirements, we can finish your hot formed component. We perform a variety of different post-processing and finishing procedures.
Hot forming offers ideal solutions for numerous joining requirements.
3D Scans / Micro- & macro Analysis / Hardness Test / etc.
ISO 14001:2015 / ISO 9001:2015 / IATF 16949:2016
We check your drawing and calculate according to the most cost-efficient manufacturing technology your offer

Even before the actual production, we are active in the factory’s own design and toolmaking. This saves time and effort, as does the subsequent post-processing by machining and thread rolling at TIGGES.
Hot forming is particularly suitable for highly stressable components (such as connecting rods, cylinders or gears) and materials, e.g. Inconel. During hot forming, only low forming forces are applied due to the heat input. Compared to cold forming, the formability is very high.
This production technique is opposed by a high energy input. It is necessary to weigh up the costs and benefits in order to obtain the best possible result from hot forming.
In forming technology, we distinguish between cold, semi-hot and hot forming.
The addition of heat in the forging process enables the forming of high-strength materials - useful for highly stressable components.
The temperature during forming is variable, depending on the type and material. Each material harbors a different microstructure and requires a specific temperature window.
In cold forming, the material consumption due to lubrication or the tool load is significantly lower.
When steel materials are used, the disadvantage is that scale formation as well as component distortion can occur due to the strong temperature influences.
Compared to cold forming, the surface quality of the hot-formed part is significantly poorer and usually requires post-processing steps.
Cold forming and hot forming differ in the following respects:
Multi-spindle lathes, long and short lathes up to 16 axes, robot inserts
Up to 6-stage presses, short throughput times, high dimensional accuracy
High surface quality, dimensional and shape accuracy, with automation
Powerful screw presses, high-temperature components
