Measuring Technology

Measuring Technology Ensures the High Kiekert Standard

Quality is the decisive driver for success for our company. And with automotive closure systems, quality is also based on measurably more precision. The most modern measuring technology helps us to ensure this precision. With every product. For every customer. The world over.

To fulfill our quality promises to our customers, our suppliers' components are tested with the most modern measuring technology right at goods receiving in the warehouse.

Kiekert uses globally uniform measuring, documentation and analysis solutions:

Our multi-sensor measuring systems are consistent with the latest technology and are compatible with every component, regardless of the type and size. This flexibility allows us to have our finger on the pulse of the dynamics of the automotive market and its short model cycles and constantly new model niches at all times. The computer-controlled 3D measuring machines are in use in the exact same configuration at all Kiekert factories. In addition to worldwide reproducibility and transparency, this also makes implementing the early warning system possible. In cases of deviations, we are ready to initiate counter-measures immediately.

Measurement standards set worldwide ensure the highest precision for our customers - which is exactly what a technology leader does!

Is your current measuring technology unable to fulfill your future demands or you can do so only with increased costs? As your professional partner, we can offer you our service on a commercial basis. Our measuring lab at the Heiligenhaus in Germany not only offers cutting-edge technology but also the personal professional competence of our staff. In addition, we have extensive systems for measuring and technical material analysis.
