Germany – In an era of disrupted supply chains and high transportation costs from Asia as well as simultaneous high demand for medical technology products, Eberhard Precision Parts of Nordheim, Germany is demonstrating its capabilities.
High-precision components for tools used in the production of medical technology products, including mold cores for syringes and pipettes as well as needles for dosing technology, have been an Eberhard specialty for decades. Extreme surface requirements such as high gloss polishing are also part of the repertoire, as are tablet and stuffing punches.
The German manufacturer is also well positioned for the growing field of electromobility. Shafts, upper and lower punches for the manufacture of batteries as well as punches for the manufacture of body panels for electric motors are part of the company’s know-how. Impact extrusion punches in addition to hexagonal and toothed punches meet high demands for stability.
In addition, high wear resistance and precision are appreciated by customers of measuring technology. Tolerances of two or three micrometers are possible. Standardized products such as ejector sleeves, ejectors or punches are produced in Germany in Eberhard factories in batches of several thousand pieces.
