Hot, warm and cold forging on vertical presses with press forces between 630 and 3000 tons and hot forging on Hatebur 70, 50 and 30 presses rounded of by machining processes: Only very few companies have this wide spectrum of processes at their disposal. PrimoTECS, which was born out of the two Italian plants formerly belonging to the Tekfor Group, is a new player in the European forging business. Acquired and now backed by Mutares SE in February 2020 and integrated into Mutares’ Portfoliosegment Automotive & Mobility, PrimoTECS is exceptionally financially stable, aiming for long-term customer relationship with a continuously profitable growth. PrimoTECS offers its customers the possibily to consolidate the supplier base – one single supplier being able to deliver a wide range of forgings:
- Long closed-die hot forgings on vertical presses up to 3000 tons press force: conrods, common rails, balancer shafts, axle stubs, geometrically intricate wheel hubs
- Precision forgings made by warm forging processes: CVJ components, rotor shafts, hollow transmission shafts, differential bevel gears
- Cold forged shafts for transmission and powertrain applications
- Components from Hatebur 30, 50 or 70: Wheel hub inner and outer races, gear blanks, pulleys, bearing rings
With its previous production- and development-oriented structure, PrimoTECS has only a small overhead and is able to offer its products at very competetive prices. It is located in the Torino area in norther Italy, a region with a long history of automotive and forging production with a dedicated engineering and production workforce.
