Tooling

Having the right tooling is decisive in terms of the productivity of manufacturing and the properties of the end product. AP&T has been developing its tooling concept and been manufacturing press tools for the sheet metal forming industry for many years. The company is currently a world leader in press hardening, amongst other things.

Quality tools and well-tested concept

AP&T manufactures quality tools for forming most metal products, and the company has developed its own, well-tested tooling concept for press hardening, ventilation, roof drainage and heat exchanger plates. AP&T's world-leading position in press hardening is largely based on the company’s successful development and manufacturing of tools for advanced hot forming. We currently supply tooling for the manufacture of all types of press hardened car parts.

Tool testing and pre-production of press hardened parts

Our Tech Center in Ulricehamn allows us to simulate and test materials and measurement equipment to ensure a faultless final result of the finished product. Amongst other things, the Tech Center has a complete and fully automated press hardening line for demonstrations, test manufacturing and pre-production, and it is designed on the basis of real production conditions. We can also help you with production there.

Press hardening

AP&T has the in-house expertise and resources needed to produce the right tool solution for press hardening lines. An overall approach to production gives us greater opportunities to optimize the tool for both product quality and process reliability.

Air duct parts

AP&T manufactures tools for collar, saddles, elbows, reducers, take-offs and end caps in hot-dip galvanized steel for the ventilation industry. We have standard tools for approximately 150 part variants.

Heat exchanger plates

AP&T produces press tools for manufacturing heat exchanger plates for compact heat exchangers. The tools are intended for stainless steel sheet metal – with or without copper foil – and can handle material thicknesses between 0.25 and 0.9 mm.

Roof drainage

AP&T supplies a complete range of tools for all parts and sizes available in the market. The tools are designed for both manual and automatic operation. Multiple operations in the bend and gutter outlet tools. All of the tools are tested at AP&T and are completely production-ready at delivery.
