Examples of products and applications

Stripwound tooling

STRECON is the original developer and manufacturer of prestressing tool systems, which are based on the stripwinding technology. The prestressing tool system is known as STRECON container and is manufactured with a special, high-strength steel strip material. Generally speaking, the STRECON container is about twice as strong as a normal compression ring system, and is available with different prestressing designs.

The stripwound containers are applied to different high-pressure applications. Our key application fields include prestressing tool systems for cold, warm and hot precision forging, high pressure synthesis of industrial diamonds/CBN, high pressure experiments at universities and research centers, and other industrial high-pressure applications.

Special machinery & equipment

STRECON has developed a new machine system for surface polishing of industrial tools and machine components. The technology is marketed as RAP: Robot Assisted Polishing, and is designed to take over the majority of the manual polishing work while ensuring a consistent, repetitive and high surface quality of the part. The machine requires no skills in robot programming and allows for an easy adoption in the polishing shop. The machine system is currently available for 2D polishing.

STRECON has also developed a tool assembly press of which the press frame is prestressed by stripwinding. This feature allows for a small, strong, and compact hydraulic press solution that fits into any corner or small place. The press is available up to 500 metric ton.

Other products

STRECON is representing Felss Systems, which is the leading developer and manufacturer of machines and production solutions for rotary swaging, axial forming, and tube bending. The special cold forming technology of Felss Systems has been broadly adopted by the German automotive industry.

STRECON is also representing high quality manufacturers of tungsten carbide tools and wear parts from Japan. Carbide tools and components offer higher strength than steel and especially useful for industrial applications involving high-load and/or high-volume, for example cold precision forging and sintering.
