  • MCG ToolingBusiness Unit

  • MCG tooling supplies automotive industry tier 1 suppliers and OEMs that manage large scale outsourcing programs for stamping tools (progressive and automatic transfer tools) in order to achieve simple and competitive solutions for complex situations, succeeding

    in their industrialization programs.Unlike low-cost, unqualified companies and with little or none

    experience in analyzing and implementing serial production processes, MCG provides qualified and competitive personnel,

    focused on optimizing customers total cost.With work based on its solid experience in stamped parts production, always under the highest automotive industry

    standards (ISO9001, ISO/TS16949), MCG manages to get the best integrated solution (one stop shop), consisting in a reliable and

    flexible partner as shown by several implemented programs with costumers like GM/Opel and VW (Body-in-White), Faurecia (Seat

    Structures), CBI (DrumBreaks).

  • Tooling RelatedR&D activities and projects

    @ MCG

  • R&D Projects


    R&D Projects

    Multi parts assembling and mechanical coupling systems

    Challenge:To replace the welding

    connections by others with the same mechanical characteristics

    Conventional approachConventional welding

    MCG Approach:Replacing conventional welding

    by mechanical connection based on tube forming operations

  • SPIF

    R&D Projects

    SINGLE POINT INCREMENTAL FORMINGSmall batch production, prototypes and more diversity of productsPart production directly from the CAD design using CNC CNC machine with no need for stamping tools.

    Challenge:Produce functional prototypes without

    tooling investment.

    Conventional approachProduction of conventional tools for

    prototypes production.

    MCG Approach:Depending on part geometry we have

    the two options:SPIF and laser-cutSPIF, laser cutting and conventional stamping tools.

  • MouldCork

    R&D Projects

    Challenge:Optimize thermal, acoustic and

    damping characteristics on structural metal components

    Conventional approachUse of insulators and damping

    materials applied after assembling operations

    MCG Approach:Optimize a composite cork base

    polymer for conventional stamping process, taking advantage of three characteristics associated with cork:

    Low weightHigh acoustic and damping performanceHigh thermal performance

  • LaTch 1 | Lightweight Thermoplastic Composites

    R&D Projects

    ObjectiveDevelop and integrate new composite materials based on unidirectional thermoplastic and its processing techs.

    ImplementationBuild a prototype of a structural automotive component taht is currently made out of steel

    HowTest new materials and processes to try and reduce weight, matching the original strutural performance
