We have a passion
for precision.

Expertise, experience and creativity are what shape our thoughts and actions. Our collaboration with renowned experts is just as important to us in our commitment to excellence as the close working relationship we enjoy with our customers.

This is the basis on which we develop innovative product ideas for precision parts made of steel and nylon designed specifically to best meet your individual needs. As a result, we manufacture each year over 700 million parts, for which we apply the highest quality standard: the satisfaction of you, our customer!

 

Development

At 3D CAD workstations and with the aid of FEM calculations, we develop innovative, state-of-the-art solutions for stamped, bent and injection-molded parts.

Mold and tool making

These solutions are implemented with the use of tooling technology in our in-house mold and tool making center, which is also equipped with modern facilities for the maintenance and manufacture of highly complex modular progressive tools.

 
 

Stamping technology

On 18 CNC-controlled high-performance automatic stamping machines with a press force of 250 to 3,000 kN, we manufacture precision parts from strip steel and non-ferrous metals with thicknesses of 0.03 to 6.00 mm. For production planning and control, our machines and systems are connected to a PDA system in order to obtain real time data and statuses.

Injection molding technology

We develop, design and produce injection molded parts from standard and high-performance plastics in our in-house injection molding facility. Modern injection molding machines are used to manufacture highly specialized, tailor-made solutions from compound materials.

After receiving recognition from one of the world's leading trade magazines in the trade fair industry, "Exhibitor", for the design of our EK exhibition booth in 2012 and 2014, we were delighted to have won a prize in the prestigious "ICONIC AWARDS 2019: Innovative Architecture" competition and the "German Design Award", which were awarded to EK by the "German Design Council".

ZF, the premium aftermarket supplier of driveline and chassis technology components and systems to the automotive industry, presented EDUARD KRONENBERG GmbH with its coveted "ZF Supplier Award", in particular for its excellent delivery quality. The jury, which was made up of ZF representatives from the Purchasing, Logistics, Quality and Technology divisions, thus honored EK as one of the Group's most efficient suppliers. EK has supplied the Friedrichshafen-based company with precision parts for shock absorbers, among other things, for over 50 years. EK currently supplies over 350 million stamped parts a year to 117 ZF locations in 26 countries worldwide.

We were honored by "Germany at its best: North Rhine-Westphalia", the location marketing campaign initiated by the state-owned economic development agency NRW.INVEST for our outstanding business performance.
