When a company is honored for its work six times in a row, it makes you sit up and take notice – especially when it happens in a sector in which the company is one of the smaller players: The foundry in Nordwalde employs just 100 people. Hengst Filtration works on state-of-the-art filtration concepts at 20 locations worldwide with more than 3,000 employees. The products are used in a wide range of industrial air filtration applications, but also in robots, medical clean rooms, air conditioning systems and vacuum cleaners.
Hengst Filtration received its sixth award in January 2020 in the aluminum die-casting competition of the “Gesamtverband der Aluminiumindustrie”. The oil coolant module developed by Hengst for the HDEP (Heavy Duty Engine Platform) commercial vehicle engines of Daimler AG convinced the expert jury. Bühler technology was also involved – as it accounts for nine of ten die-casting cells at Hengst in the range between 800 and 2,200 metric tons locking force.
