schwartz – quality and innovation for more than three decades

For more than 35 years, we have been on record as a leading manufacturer of heat treatment equipment for the press hardening, hardening, annealing, forging and brazing of steels, non-ferrous metals and aluminum. We are the global market leader in the field of heat treatment solutions for press hardening.

Our advanced heat treatment systems have proven their merits many times over in automotive manufacturing and its supplier industries, steel and nonferrous metals processing, and in the aircraft industry. Today, these installations are in use all over the globe. In the automotive sector, we supply directly to vehicle manufacturers as a tier 1 and tier 2 supplier or act as a vendor to their direct suppliers.

Customized heat treatment systems, made to measure

Heat treatment systems made by schwartz GmbH are designed and built individually to match specific user requirements, relying on our expertise and experience in this field since 1984.
Our equipment allows heat treatment processes to be carried out in air, protective gas and/or reactive atmospheres. For the heat treatment of aluminum in particular, we design and manufacture equipment with high-convection heating methods.

In addition to our heat treatment systems, our subsidiary CONEX Die Solutions AB offers individually manufactured press dies. We therefore offer you the right combination for your component and temperature geometry.

Innovation based on experience

Over the decades we have repeatedly drawn attention to ourselves with innovative systems. In 2015, for example, we were awarded the Aachen Region’s AC² Innovation Prize for our new development for partial heating of circuit boards. This has now been successfully implemented in production.
