Philosophy

Development

Continuous new development and improvement of our products play a central role with manifold fields of activities. Our product manager, application technicians and engineers are permanently  optimizing the existing product range and create new versions and items constantly. 
The colleagues test, analyse, evaluate customer´s experiences, correct, control and plan the contribution into the manufacturing of the various production plants. We consider ourselves development partner for our customers, who not seldom initiate innovative, efficient and economic results.
Whether fasteners, hand-operated tools or stationary automation - challenge us - together with you we will establish an individual, efficient riveting solution for your application.

Production

Our manufacuring competence is the cold forming of wire in all current materials like steel, aluminium, stainless steel, copper and brass and others. For that, pieces of wire up to a diameter of 20 mm are brought into shape on most modern 5 to 6 multistage presses. With our own in-house tool making department we are able to meet even short-term production inquiries.

The pressing procedure is followed by many further worksteps - all done in-house too:Laser welding, crimping, thread forming, modifications by machining and different heat treatments as weel as the application of different types of sealings or partial protection against scatches.

Quality

Quality in every sense plays an important role in our corporate routine.
The Honsel Group has made enormous investments in this field in the past years and  developed quality assurance processes which are exemplary: The certifications according to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16949 illustrate this.
Next to standardized testing methods for monitoring shear and tensile forces, the rivet mandrel´s breaking and compressive strength as well as the locking of the remaining mandrel, most modern measuring instruments and testing possibilities - from process control systems to several optoelectronic testing machines - secure highest level of production.
The complete tracability of all products back to the used basic material is guaranteed without interruption by checking and documenting all phases of the ongoing production process for each single batch.
