Located in southern Germany, this owner-managed metal-forming company has customers in a variety of industries, in particular the automotive industry, general mechanical engineering and pressure vessel/pipe manufacturing. Drop-forged materials include pressure vessel steels, high-alloy materials, case-hardened and heat-treated steels and modern precipitation-hardening ferritic-pearlitic steels (AFP steels).
Richard Neumayer maintains a testing laboratory equipped with tensile testing machines. This is used for in-production tests for engine piston manufacturers and for testing components in pressure equipment. To enable tensile testing at high temperatures the company has opted to acquire a ZwickRoell AllroundLine testing machine. The Z250 SR is equipped with a three-zone high-temperature furnace, allowing testing in a temperature range from room temperature up to 900°C.
