Since April 2016, the AWEBA Group has been integrated into the Schuler AG from Baden-Wurttemberg - a global leader in forming technology. The sites in Saxony - AWEBA Werkzeugbau GmbH Aue, WVL Werkzeug- und Vorrichtungsbau Lichtenstein GmbH in St. Egidien and ATF Auer Teilefertigung GmbH - master a number of globally unique tool and die technologies – for example, for the mass production of magnesium components straight from the coil on production presses – and provides all tool variants for the production of rotor and stator sheet packages which are used for the construction of electric engines and motors. The company also has a unique selling proposition when it comes to tools for high precision transmission components which combine both forming and fine blanking in one toolkit. The company, thus, actively supports the automobile manufacturers in the core topics lightweight construction and electrification of the powertrain.


Porsche Werkzeugbau GmbH’s Schwarzenberg production site is a leading manufacturer of large-scale tools for car body construction. The engineers and skilled workers successfully manage the entire process chain for the development and production of complex cutting and forming tools in the most diverse material qualities. In addition to various steels, a primary focus is also on such lightweight construction materials as, for example, aluminum and composites. The toolmakers from Schwarzenberg specialize in large-scale tools for floor panels and complete sidewall and bodyshell components. A real masterpiece is, for example, the aluminum forming of a passenger car bodyshell component in one piece.
