Rinteln, Germany – STUKEN is the global market leader when it comes to manufacturing stamped and deep-drawn parts for the automotive industry. Every car with a conventional drive system statistically contains 40 STUKEN parts. However, STUKEN parts are increasingly being used in vehicles with electric or hybrid drive systems. What’s more, STUKEN enables high-performance sensor technology.
STUKEN already supplies about 25 different products specifically for electric drive systems. Plus components for airbags, brake systems, automotive lamps or power sockets. To ensure clean air, STUKEN makes a vital contribution with over 60 parts for exhaust sensors.
The range of vendor parts for sensors comprises about 100 parts – and sensors mean the future of the automotive industry, which will be marked by autonomous driving functions and the connected car.
The future is miniaturized, efficient and intelligent
Novel developments include the internet of things for consumers and the intelligent factory for industry. Smartwatches and data glasses are just the beginning of wearable computing – a market with the highest growth forecasts. Medical, safety, and vehicle technologies are further growth drivers. Sensor technology plays a key role in all these industries – which means that suppliers’ experience and technical capabilities will also play a key role.
Sensor components have always been an integral part of the STUKEN range. Typical products include, for example, components for conventional temperature sensors in heating units, for pyroelectric sensors for measuring radiant heat in microwaves and for photoelectric sensor for data transmission using fiber optic technology.
Today the range also features components for the growth markets of the future.
STUKEN has considerable expertise in the field of sophisticated micro parts. A current example is this very long and thin sleeve which requires extreme shaping:
- Length: 40 mm
- Outer Diameter: 0.95 mm
- Inner Diameter: 0.75 MM
- Material: 1.4303
