The most economically successful companies on the market recognised at an early stage that a concentration on core competence would bring decisive competitive advantages. Particularly in the industrial manufacturing of end products in the mechanical engineering and automotive industries, companies hardly produce any individual parts themselves.
Rather, they rely on the expertise and services of specialised parts manufacturers who supply complete components, partially assembled components, system components and assembled individual components for the economic final assembly of the product directly to the production halls.
In the field of precision parts, REINER®'s customers particularly appreciate its technical competence in various manufacturing processes and quality services, its experience in combining production technologies such as MIM (Metal Injection Moulding), zinc die casting, sheet metal components, plastics and its wide range of finishing processes. All of REINER®'s production areas are always geared towards maximum precision.
A unique selling point of REINER® in the assembly of components is the vertical range of manufacturing, which, if required, already begins with the sketch plan. The in-house development centre provides engineers with CAD stations to draw up plans and seamlessly transfer them into component production.
Customers of REINER® can exert influence in every step of the process – and yet always have only one contact person.

What does the assembly of components in contract manufacturing mean for the value chain?
Precision parts in the component assembly – what is the perfect manufacturing process for the assembly of components?
The “optimal manufacturing process” for the assembly of components should do without unnecessary logistics, storage times and processing efforts with various parts suppliers and contact persons. Metaphorically speaking: the various parts required come directly from the production lines to an assembly line in the hands of experienced specialists for immediate assembly of the component.
With its quality services, REINER® is also a reliable partner in the pure assembly of components from provided or purchased individual components up to the assembly of the end product.
Moreover, what distinguishes the “perfect contractor” for contract manufacturing and the manufacture of components is the handling of the “unforeseen” in small series and large series production. This includes short-term development corrections by the customer, necessary quick reactions to fluctuations in the number of pieces required, flexible handling of delivery bottlenecks, acceptance of final assemblies and more.
As a partner, REINER® actively supports its customers in the accomplishment of these tasks.
The wide range of services offered by REINER® Precision Technology “in-house” virtually covers all necessary technologies for manufacturing components:
- Zinc die casting for small, particularly resistant parts
- Metal Injection Moulding for precision parts with complex geometries
- Fine blanking/forming for sheet metal parts with high precision requirements
- In-house tool shop for fineblanking tools and forming tools
- REINER®'s extensive range of post-processing and quality services is also at the customers' disposal to accelerate further processes:
- Surface finish: Sandblasting, barrel finishing, polishing, lapping
- Coating technology: Thin film technology, electroplating, painting
- Joining technology: Laser welding, soldering, assembly
- Heat treatment: Hardening, HIP (hot isostatic pressing)
- Machining: Turning, milling, drilling, grinding, reaming, honing, thread cutting
- Forming technology: Calibration
Does outsourced manufacturing of components have any advantages compared to the assembly of components in the company's own final finishing line?
REINER®'s contract manufacturing of components benefits its customers in many ways:
- A smaller number of suppliers and contact persons significantly reduces the administrative and processing effort.
- Logistics costs are reduced and inefficiencies, time and costs are saved.
- Quality inspection is noticeably simplified, as REINER® already guarantees the functionality of its components.
- The finishing process is shortened to the assembly of a few, quality-checked components, which reduces the required personnel (and partly also the requirements for their qualification).
- Such cost savings go hand in hand with significantly greater flexibility in technical solutions and materials used.
