AKS - World market leader in the production of connecting rods

The product range of AKS includes special machines and machining centers for connecting rod processing as well as fracture splitting machines and assembly machines. These are mainly used in the production processes of almost every major automotive manufacturer and supplier.

AKS is the world's leading supplier, especially in the production of connecting rods. A position based on the competence, the willingness to innovate and the patents of more than 75 years of mechanical engineering. The latest generation of AX, AT and AF connecting rod machines is the logical consequence of this intense search for uncompromisingly reliable, precise and fast high-tech machines.

AMT - Leading specialist for nut runner technology, assembly systems and automation

The continuous development of more and more precise, intelligent and energy-efficient nut runner systems for safety and quality-critical fastening applications is the foundation of the company's internationally earned top position.

Extensive expertise in conception and construction of manual, partly automated and fully automatic assembly systems makes AMT a worldwide partner to the automotive industry and its suppliers.

In the automation industry, AMT develops complex solutions for the automated loading and unloading of machines, as well as their inter-connections.
