A pioneer in many fields

The modern design
of progressive tools

The turning point in modern tool design: the Stepper Module System, the first modular stamping tool with an emphasis on user-friendliness.

A universal base tool, which plug-in modules can transform into a custom tool for entire families of parts. With easy operation, minimal maintenance and high speeds, it can handle the most demanding bending, rolling and pressing operations.

Computer-integrated manufacturing is the foundation for success

Integrated digital workflow, fully automated order planning and data transfer throughout the development, design, manufacturing, assembly and production testing processes. That was the objective Stepper foresaw in the mid-1970s when CAD first came into use in tool manufacturing. The basis of computer-integrated manufacturing is the use of artificial intelligence in the tool manufacturing industry. This is accomplished by a program Stepper developed (a licensed version of which is also available) for the fast and precision design of stamping tools.

Precision alone is not
what makes a good tool

Optimal surface treatment in the manufacturing process is just as important, which is why Stepper also takes on this role and conducts intensive research work, quickly turning internally or externally manufactured tools into highly productive tools at its in-house hard surface coating facilities.
With artificial aging, vacuum hardening and other innovative technologies such as Stepper Special Diamond surface coating, for a service life of up to 20 times longer than conventional tools.

Low-cost production
in a single operation

The innovative combination of stamping and welding for low-cost production is impressive in every way, completing up to 1,400 multipart, complex precision contacts per minute in a single operation.

Logically implemented in the patented Stepper high-performance combined stamping tool with integrated laser welding module. Or optionally, in the high-performance laser system for hooking up contact components outside the stamping machine.
