Heat treatment in a schwartz system prior to the subsequent pressing step makes steel auto body components substantially stronger. Inside the vehicle, these parts yield a significantly higher crash safety for the occupants. Moreover, given their superior strength, they can be made thinner. This provides additional savings in car weight and hence, improved fuel efficiency.

Through the use of aluminum suspension parts, automotive suppliers can further enhance the energy efficiency of their cars.

Custom built heat treatment systems

Heat treatment systems made by schwartz are designed and built individually to match specific user requirements, relying on expertise and experience gathered in this field since 1984.

All schwartz heat treatment systems are fully assembled and undergo thorough pre-shipment hot testing at their German manufacturing sites in Simmerath and Aachen.

The schwartz group – at your service worldwide

Nine global sites form the international schwartz group network. Two of them are located in Germany, two in Sweden, four in China and one in the USA. Worldwide, schwartz has 21,000 sq.m of production area for heat treatment systems at its disposal and employs 250 people while the staff complement at the headquarters site in Simmerath, Germany is currently at around 150. There are around 4,500 m² of floor space dedicated to the manufacture, assembly and factory inspection of heat treatment equipment.
