At our sites in Meissen, Hirschfeld-Neukirchen, and also in Vieux-Charmont, France, we produce automotive components in large batches with highest precision.
We are equipped with state-of-the-art tools and machinery. Our employees have excellent qualifications and many years of experience in engineering, production and quality control.
We manufacture precision components according to our customers' requirements, for example on fully-automated CNC machining centers. Our experienced and skilled workers steer and supervise the production and guarantee continuous high quality of the products.

Engineering and Technology

Engineering and Technology

Our engineering department is partner to our customers and to the sales department for questions of new design and technical changes in products. Here, all processes for an efficient production are planned and developed through all production steps.

Heat- and Surface Treatment 

Heat- and Surface Treatment

Between individual forming steps recrystallization annealing is being performed in an annealing furnace. By heating up to temperatures around 700 degrees Celsius, the parts regain their original metal structure. This prevents cracking and breakage during further processing.

Cold Forming

Cold Forming

UKM has machines for vertical and horizontal cold forming. Our shears and presses, with press forces up to 630 metric tons, can handle steel bars as well as steel wire from coils.

Machining / CNC Machining

Machining / CNC Machining

With a wide range of high-tech machining technologies we meet the diverse requirements of our customers.

Toolmaking

Toolmaking

UKM has a well-equipped tool shop. Our production can therefore react swiftly and adaptively to customer requirements, and tools that are worn down can be replaced quickly and at low costs. Apart from the numerous machines for turning, milling and grinding, two additional factors are important: well-trained craftsmen and plenty of experience.

Assembly

Assembly

UKM assembles components for original equipment manufacturers from parts manufactured by ourselves or from supplied parts. We have different facilities ranging from devices for manual assembly up to fully automated solutions.

Quality Management

Quality Management

In the context of regular re-certifications according to ISO/TS 16949, which is an obligatory standard in the automotive sector, UKM consistently has to live up to its own standards. In addition, we scrutinize and evaluate all processes in the company in numerous and extensive customer audits.

Logistics and Dispatch

Logistics and Dispatch

Our automated storage and retrieval system is the linchpin of our logistics infrastructure. It connects the loading platforms for receipt and dispatch with the picking area and several interlinked storage locations in the factory. In this way we supply material to the different sections of our production exactly where it is needed and collect products ready for dispatch.
