Tool and Press Shop, BMW, Dingolfing
The BMW Group Tool Shop in Dingolfing is responsible for shaping the typical, emotional design of BMW and MINI cars into sheet metal.
Using state-of-the-tech machining and try-out equipment, including servo-technology presses which are equivalent to the presses in the BMW Groups Press Shops, more than 270 highly trained employees are developing, milling and building up to 200 press tools per year. Each one may weigh up to 50 metric tons.
After machining, build-up and try-out, toolmakers are being deployed for home line commissioning worldwide to ensure maximum quality, efficiency and performance for all customers.
The Dingolfing Press Shop is the largest facility of its kind within the BMW Group.
More than 40 press systems produce about 2,500 different parts – from fuel tank caps to side frames, with the sheet thickness ranging from 0.65 to 3 mm.
Two new high-speed servo presses for the production of large-scale body parts help Dingolfing’s press shop to increase its efficiency further and to save resources in production.
