The Handtmann Group of Companies



background image

Growing together!

Advanced technology, innovations and the focus on the individual
are key aspects of the Handtmann Group of Companies. We are
renowned worldwide for our strategic, dynamic and authentic

The company has its roots in the Swabian town of Biberach
where the Handtmann family has been managing the family
enterprise for four generations: a symbiosis of modern and
traditional elements, fascinating technology, a high sense of re-
sponsibility towards people and the company create an indivisible
whole. Arthur Handtmann who took over the company in 1946
and developed it to become an efficient competitive group is still
the President of the Advisory Board. His son Thomas Handtmann
who has been head of the company since 1998 is shaping the
future of the Handtmann Group of Companies.

The goal of the Handtmann family is to pursue the future of the
Handtmann Group of Companies as a family enterprise and this
should continue into the fifth generation.

Autonomous management structures are established in a de-
centralised organisation in six divisions. At the head of the Group
is a holding company with an Advisory Board which acts as the
management, financing and holding company.

Handtmann philosophy



We have always had a passion for tackling challenging techno-
logical problems. Throughout the Handtmann Group of Compa-
nies sophisticated technical solutions are developed and made
ready for the market for the benefit of our customers. This
dynamic philosophy poses a perpetual challenge and requires
not only a highly qualified team but also entrepreneurial courage
and farsightedness.

Our technological orientation encompasses all corporate
divisions – innovations are not simply a product of coincidence:
the urge to overcome apparent boundaries, the insatiable
desire to present innovations must be pursued and exemplified.
Professional innovation management is therefore one of our
essential qualities.

Economically feasible innovations

for our customers


Arthur-Handtmann-Straße in Biberach.
The Handtmann Group develops,
produces, manages and sells globally
on an area of 600,000 m


, 300,000 m


of which are covered.

We often perform genuine pioneer work and tirelessly reap the
fruits of our success on the market. For example, the lost foam
aluminium casting process for series production with which we
have become technological leaders in both Germany and Europe,
but also the Handtmann exhaust systems, oil pans and chassis
parts made from aluminium die cast, large batch magnesium
casting and patented filtering methods make technological history.

Our filling and portioning systems for the food industry are lead-
ing on the global market, likewise valve and process technology
and patented filtration methods of the Armaturenfabrik, the engi-
neering materials Lauramid


and Lauramid Inject


from Elteka

and the 5-axis high-speed machining centres from A-Punkt
Automation, to name but a few. We realise ideas with a future.

Proximity to the customer creates efficiency

and individuality

The internationalisation of the company enables local presence
and proximity to customers in all important markets throughout
the world. On the one hand this enables us to offer the best pos-
sible service, on the other hand we gain application experience
from all parts of the world, and precisely this makes Handtmann
strong and diverse: we incorporate all experience gained into our
research and development and through permanent international
benchmarking we foster our commitment in the pursuit of quality

This orientation has been part of our corporate culture for dec-
ades. All divisions within the Handtmann Group of Companies
are major exporters and thus consistently geared towards the
needs of international markets. Our extensive network for ex-
changing information and services provides global expertise
on a local basis – from the first customer contact to individual
support in the application.

The Handtmann companies in the numerous important export
markets act to a large extent autonomously. Other sites and
agents worldwide ensure that Handtmann’s expertise is available
at all times. Guidelines issued by the headquarters ensure uni-
form standards with regard to technology, quality and service. In
individual cases, however, the customised solution has priority.
Your satisfaction counts.

Handtmann is represented in over 100 countries with
its own production plants, subsidiaries and agents.

Light metal casting

Handtmann is your strategic system partner for aluminium and
magnesium casting, in particular for the automotive industry.
Renowned manufacturers and suppliers rely on our expertise –
not only on the sophisticated process and machining skills but
also on our qualities and many years of experience in the field.
With over 2,000 employees we are the largest German aluminium
casting foundry that is still family-owned.

We place great importance on being the development partner
for our customers. We bundle our skills, pool our ideas and set
standards from the very beginning – whether in the production of
highly robust cast products for chassis and bodies, as trendset-
ter in the production of oil pans or in the manufacture of large,
complex transmission parts.

Our plants in Biberach and Annaberg thus produce safety-relat-
ed aluminium high-pressure die casting parts with closing forces
of up to 4,000 MN and lightweight magnesium parts. Further
plants are located in Slovakia and China. The gravity high-pres-
sure die casting process produces components for highest load
requirements, the lost foam method unique flexible shapes of
expandable polystyrene (EPS).

A modern, highly automated machine park provides maximum
flexibility. It guarantees the precise further processing and as-
sembly of all parts: over 50 CNC machining centres and numer-
ous special plants ensure that the innovative ideas and concepts
are accurately implemented and provided “just in time” exactly
where they are needed.
Handtmann finds the best possible solution for you.

Contract development is a skill – strategic planning clearly de-
fines the company’s mission: Handtmann Systemtechnik is your
contact for shaping the future. We plan strategically, evaluate
ideas, realise projects and profit from our experience and the
qualities of the Handtmann Group of Companies and its decades
of outstanding competence in aluminium and magnesium casting.

The results of our intensive cooperation with the top OEMs in the
automotive sector play a significant role in their value chain and
during strategic planning. An excellent example in addition to the
complex suction systems and intelligent concepts for exhaust
gas routing and cooling, is the Handtmann HSLn



supercharger. Its compatibility with a variety of engines ensures
improved driving performance with reduced fuel consumption
and CO


emissions. It operates highly efficiently, has an extremely

low noise level and provides increased driving comfort with mini-
mum mass inertia.

A further contribution of Handtmann Systemtechnik to tomor-
row’s mobility is a highly integrative charge air module. As a full
service provider, we support you from the idea to market maturi-
ty. We initiate progress, provide consultancy services and assume
project supervision and responsibility. We develop, construct and
supply prototypes. We offer know-how transfer, provide support
in planning, organisation, function and quality control and accom-
pany you into series production. We break new ground.

•  Lauramid


metal combination

•  Lauramid Inject


•  Semi-finished products, finished components,
complete systems
•  Application-specific component design

Mould-cast Lauramid


transport roller

It is employed in the mechanical engineering sector and far be-
yond this: the high-performance Lauramid


engineering plastic

produced by Handtmann Elteka optimally combines mechanical,
physical and chemical properties and is therefore frequently
used to replace metal components. The creativity in application
virtually knows no limits.

PA 12C Lauramid


, the international market leader, is a pres-

sureless cast, heavy duty, dimensionally stable polyamide.
It is suitable for employment in complex complete systems,
special moulds and safety-related machine elements. Lauramid


, a metal foam encapsulated with PA 12C Lauramid



continues the success story. This material is lighter but at the
same time even stiffer and thus especially suited for large com-
ponents. This Lauramid


variant can be used e.g. to encapsulate

metal foams and other materials.

Handtmann Elteka produces complete systems, cast parts,
semi-finished products and food-safe components. These are
used in mechanical engineering in virtually every industry sector.
For example, in the automotive industry, the packaging and food
industry, in medical and conveying technology or in the area of
renewable energy. Extensive engineering services, consulting
and calculation in the development of components represent
the core competence of the services. In close cooperation with
