Whether exhaust gas manifolds, roof rails, seat backrests, cushion shells, interior door shells, door reinforcement systems, A and B pillars or strengthening parts for axles. Production of these vehicle components requires the most modern and high-quality tools for sheet forming, which are produced in Hövelhof at the company JMW GmbH.

The company Joh. Meier Werkzeugbau GmbH, abbr. JMW GmbH, employs 85 people and produces at two locations in Hövelhof all kinds of prototype tools, as well as PCB cutting tools, progression tools, and transfer tools for series production in the automotive industry.

In addition to tool manufacturing, JMW GmbH services include maintenance, service of tools and the processing of machine components in 2D and 3D processing.

A wide range of services, from the first sample to the series component, can be guaranteed through a precisely coordinated production network. Zero or low-volume productions of coil can also be achieved with press forces of up to 1,600 tons. There is a highly modern machine park for this purpose.

With expert advice and the most innovative technology, such as forming simulation, it is possible to carry out advance feasibility studies, with which optimisation of the components and tools can be guaranteed during the entire manufacturing process.
