The world keeps turning
Halblech, March 10, 2020 – Even in a highly technological world you do not have everything under control. This is shown by the current crisis. At the WIRE, we wanted to present you our latest developments. But security and protection comes first!
The WIRE is now postponed to 07. - 11.12.2020. Nevertheless, here is one of our highlights: the efficient manufacturing solution for hairpins based on Bihler servo Technology. The BIMERIC production system with standardized machining processes combines all required process steps: starting with the highly dynamic, slip-free feeding of the wire, NC-controlled mechanical stripping of the coating, simultaneous chamfering of the pin ends, pre-bending and 3D die bending, all the way to the final measurement of the component geometry and inline readjustment.
Designed for industrial production
Variant changes take place “on the fly”. The output on the servo system is between 60 and 120 hairpins per minute, depending on variant, wire cross-section and pin length. The cycle speed is therefore around three times higher than with sequential systems, making the BIMERIC ideal for industrial production. Another advantage: Additional bending machines, cost-intensive peripheral equipment as well as space requirements can be reduced by using this complete system.
Please contact us. We would be pleased to advise you.
Key Account Manager E-Mobility
Halblech, 14.11.2019 – Armin Chiesola (Member of the Board of Managers / Head of Sales at Meusburger) and Mathias Bihler (Managing Partner) are proud of the successful cooperation of their companies. Bihler and Meusburger developed the first standardized stamping and forming die sets with Meusburger standard parts for Bihler NC presses. The new die sets in types 'tunnel cut' or 'spring-loaded guiding plate' are significantly more cost-effective and available from stock.
Standardised stamping and forming die sets for Bihler presses
Halblech, 15th July, 2019 - In a close cooperation Bihler and Meusburger developed the first standardised stamping and forming die sets with Meusburger standard parts for Bihler NC presses. The new die sets in types 'tunnel cut' or 'spring-loaded guiding plate' are available for stamping presses with forces up to 400kN.
The standardisation of stamping and forming die sets has great advantages: they are significantly more cost-effective, and they are available from stock. The die sets themselves also offer many product advantages – from precision alignment edges to practical anti-rotation protection, as well as helpful mounting threads in the plates for pull handles, eye bolts and spacer discs, and useful vent holes.
Stamped and formed part manufacturers who already own a Bihler NC press can obtain the exclusive stamping and forming die sets quickly and easily from Meusburger. Those considering the purchase of a new Bihler Servo stamping and forming machine type RM-NC or GRM-NC with die set will receive an offer from Bihler for the entire package, made up of the NC stamping and forming machine including the suitable standard stamping and forming die set from Meusburger.
Bihler part of the TOP 100
Halblech, July 1st, 2019 – Bihler has again been selected as one of the best at the 26th edition of the German TOP 100 Innovation Contest. On June 28th, 2019, the family-owned company was honored in Frankfurt's Jahrhunderthalle by the mentor of the contest, Ranga Yogeshwar – for the third time.
Bihler owes its top position in the innovation elite to its excellent internal innovation climate. Via the quality management platform “Q.wiki”, employees improve internal processes with suggestions and comments. “Our ‘Q.wiki’ integrates quality and process management much more into the everyday activities of our employees,” says managing director Manfred Grundner. “Thanks to this transparency, innovation is part of daily life in the entire company.”
A wealth of experience constantly available
The platform not only networks the Bihler team, it also preserves the knowledge from over six decades. Our wealth of experience is always up to date and available at any time to create valuable synergy effects between projects and to prevent the repetition of errors. Employees can also rely on a large pool of existing design solutions for new projects – a big plus if almost every project ends with a special system.

Industry meets top-class sports
Halblech, May 23, 2019 – Yesterday, Wolfgang Maier (director of the alpine sports division of the German Ski Association) visited Bihler. Mathias Bihler and Maier talked about exciting parallels between industry and top-class sports. In both areas, it is important to reach the peak and retaining the top position. Wolfgang Maier and Mathias Bihler shared their knowledge and best practices concerning these topics.
The complete interview will be published in the new version of our customer magazine “b on top” in October 2019.
Supplier Innovation Award for Bihler and Schürholz
Halblech, April 29th, 2019 – At this year's Brose Technology Days in April, Otto Bihler Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG and Schürholz GmbH received the Brose Supplier Innovation Award.
The two companies received this award from the world's fourth-largest automotive supplier in recognition of their outstanding innovative achievements and excellent cooperation. Together with Brose, Bihler and Schürholz developed a pioneering production technology for manufacturing housings for actuation motors. Bihler's modular BIMERIC servo system served as the platform for a wide variety of machining and assembly processes such as stamping, bending, laser welding and the patented joining of covers and housings. The innovative combination of these processes has led to cost reduction, material saving and weight reduction.
Mathias Bihler, Managing Partner at Bihler, emphasizes: “The award highlights the great innovative strength of the Old Economy in mastering essential issues such as material efficiency”.
