Tool Making:
Single Unit Production for Serial Production

Tool making (or rather: tool making & fixture construction) is the link between product development and serial production.

Or as JoRe manager Frank Johannhörster puts it: ”Tools are required to manufacture mass- produced articles for the industry.“

Our customers are from the following branches of industry:

  • Automotive Industry and Subcontractors
  • Metal Industry
  • Plastics Industry
  • Foundries
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Medical Industry
  • Mechanical Engineering

The automotive industry and its suppliers benefit most from JoRe tools. In this industry, the number of components that are to be manufactured is very high; cost-efficient production is made possible with the use of transfer tools, follow-on composite tools, follow-on tools, line tools. On average, JoRe tools are used for seven to eight years.

”Without tool making, a car would be far too expensive“, explains Frank Johannhörster. Tools that are precisely developed and manufactured reliably produce large quantities of components of high and consistent quality. Thus, technical products become affordable for consumers.

Short Processing Times

Each JoRe tool is unique and is used for the manufacturing of an individual product. In a product’s life cycle, the tool represents a considerable part of the total product cost. This is why we focus our attention on reducing the products‘ processing times while constantly maintaining high quality.


JoRe Werkzeugbau’s components consist of aluminum, high-strength sheet metal or sheet steel. We manufacture them on CNC machining centers which have been specially designed for this purpose. Furthermore, we at JoRe Werkzeugbau still attach great importance to our tool makers‘ manual work.


The development of products that are successful in the market largely depends on tool making. This makes the development of the optimal tool even more important. In this regard, experience, simulation and construction as well as the implementation by machine and by hand are the most important thing.

Then the new tool is put to the acid test:

  • Can the production target be implemented this way?
  • Will the desired machining accuracy be achieved?
  • Have all customer demands been met to their satisfaction?
  • How is the thermal behavior?
  • etc.

The designers of our independent design engineering department, ISPA Engineering, first perform a drawing simulation with the simulation software Autoform. This forms the basis for the next steps of development. With the help of the 3D software Catia V5 and other software customary in this line of business, they create custom-made products. Many steps are required from the first model to the prototype before production at the CNC milling machines and at the work bench can be carried out.
