Process Experience & Know-How
With over 80 years of experience including more than 20 years in structural parts, Heck & Becker is certainly the undisputed industry leader. This experience allows for knowledge that can only be gained through trial and error over time, creating solutions to difficult problems and innovative new ideas. This expertise is incorporated into developing and optimizing your die casting parts, dies and processes, saving you time and money.
Engineering does not start with the die design but with the design of the part. First together with your designers, our experienced team of in-house designers and application engineers shape the part by planning casting systems and running simulations. This creates then the most functional and manufacturable part possible, saving you time and money. Heck & Becker offers flow simulation and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of the mold as well as prototypes.
Innovative Tool Build & Production
Heck & Becker owns an in-house casting center, equipped with a 3500 ton die cast sampling machine with Vacural, Vacuum and traditional casting capabilities. There your first prototypes are produced as well as your first high-pressure die casting dies. Then the final die is tested in Heck & Becker’s in-house casting center. Along with the final die, you receive the entire casting process, which is launched into series production and optimized together with Heck & Becker.
In order to ensure a quality product and efficient sample casting, substantial quality control gauges and fixtures are required. To this end, alongside HERCO, Heck & Becker offers extensive quality control measures. These measures include complying with your needs and your product demands. Thus we also adapt to your manual/electronic measurements and displays as well as your data link storage to your IT system for documentation.
Moreover HERCO offers innovative mold components that minimize cycle times and reduce scrap rates, saving you money.
