Manufacturing technologies

The road to a ready-for-series product.

High quality products require production processes at the highest quality level. Our experienced experts, comprehensive know-how, business savvy and state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies ensure perfect processes of superior quality. We rely only on the latest manufacturing processes from one source.

The entire spectrum of technologies employed at the Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe begins with tool making and jig building. Instead of just adopting standard technology, we rely on our own in-house and individual tool and manufacturing concepts, such as variothermal tool applications, in-mold design, or precision molding. This gives us complete control of the entire process chain. And that means: we plan, design and manufacture special machines, jigs, measuring and test equipment intended for use at every Dr.Schneider location worldwide. We accompany the process every step of the way leading up to the ready-for-series stage, using the latest software, hardware, smart robotics and innovative camera systems.

Our traditional competence in injection molding technology has been developed further and perfected over the last nine decades. Among our greatest strengths today, you will find a host of other methods such as multiple component manufacturing, thin-wall technology, variothermal technologies, IMA, GID, IMD, IMF, back injection molding, chemical and physical foaming and the mono sandwich process. Utilizing more than 350 high-tech injection molding machines, we process plastic granulate into high-quality products.

Thanks to our own competence center for paint technology, we set standards in these areas as well and can offer sophisticated paint technologies such as high-gloss surfaces or laser paint jobs and surface finishes in perfection.

When it comes to assembly technology, the Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe has so much more to offer than the usual standards. This is not only true for the individual work station but also entire assembly lines. We set the bar high: ensuring a perfect, reproducible process and the use of the latest technology. That attitude applies as much to cutting-edge hot stamping technology in the area of surface work as it does to innovative joining technology with vibration welding. We can implement all welding technologies available on the market or thermal caulking for precision fit quality in car interiors.

Product creation process.

From the first to the final ready-for-series product that blends perfectly into the car's interior, underlining the individual character of the car – we stand for full-service with all its facets.

Our six-step production creation process includes:

  • Concept development

    Trends are turned into ideas. Trend scouting, designs and functional concepts are the basis for future standards.
  • Prototype development

    Ideas you can touch. We don’t stop at digital designs, CAD models and simulations – we build prototypes you can touch and experience.
  • Series development

    Before a product is ready-for-series, an idea is put on a test stand, in the virtual and physical world until a component reaches its point of perfection.
  • Industrialization

    Ideas become reality - thanks to feasibility studies, simulations, tests, FMEA, process planning, plant engineering and validation.
  • Series production

    We produce premium products for global markets with more than 350 injection molding machines and seven paint system facilities – and in doing so, turn trends into ideas.
  • After-market

    Perfect service even after a series production has been discontinued: As a reliable full-service supplier, our experts in the spare parts management guarantee the long-term supply of spare parts.

Our success as a full-service supplier springs from our innovative power throughout the entire production creation process – from acquiring the first concept studies, the development and industrialization all the way to the first perfectly manufactured series product. Our experience and production integration allows us to identify trends early on and thus respond perfectly and flexibly to market and customer requirements. This is how our products are always created with "Focus on Excellence" – as an in-house development or by customer request.
