Tightening and press-in technique – both under one roof

Our common theme:
efficient and high-quality

Screwing and joining technology - both under one roof, both excellently designed. This is a rarity. One which is sought after on an international scale: As a traditional and innovative expert in the field of tightening, press-in and measuring technique, we at DSM are regarded as one of the leading global providers of precision technology for assembly processes. DSM Messtechnik is an independent, owner-managed family company. Our clear commitment to a German location is a common theme which has featured in our company’s history for more than 35 years. As well as our high quality standard. The two go hand in hand: At our headquarters in Aalen, in the Swabian mountains, our experienced specialist team develops and produces all DSM products in an efficient manner and to a high quality. Regardless of whether serial production or a customer-specific solution is involved.


The earlier we are integrated into a project from DSM, the better. Thanks to well-founded expertise, we are well-versed in recognising and analysing specific needs and requirements, and consulting our customers in a purposeful manner. Application case, tightening process, safety, tools, torque and rotational angle measuring devices, feeding technology, equipment of the workstation or system - for perfect results everything must be tailored. This is where our core competences can be found.

Precision technology for first-class assembly processes

control system Tightening Press-in

Control systems

The right control system for each assembly process. DSM control systems and software are suitable for tightening and press-in tasks - the same operating concept. DSM control systems are modularly designed and combine control electronics and a servo control in one housing.

By combining intuitive user friendliness and a modular hardware and software concept, the MultiPro 3G has created a future-oriented basis in order to overcome the current requirements in tightening and press-in technique. Equipped with a variety of functions, the scope of services of the MultiPro 3G can be individually tailored. DSM implements special process-specific tasks in a customer-focussed and professionally-skilled manner - a newly generated function can be easily integrated into the control system as an Add-on.


The requirements placed on a nutrunner are diverse. The DS series offers you products which are specially configured for your applications. In the right size, with the correct torque, in the required precision, with the appropriate attachment. Thanks to in-house production, individual adjustments can also be made.

The data transmission is performed digitally for nutrunners from the DS series. The benefit: The nutrunner features an independent distributed intelligence and only one connecting cable is needed in the power classes up to 60 Nm. Another striking detail is the light units on the nutrunner which indicate the tightening status.


The right press-in unit for press, joining and forming tasks. With the QMP and SMP series, DSM offers you joint units which are specially configured for your applications. In the right size, with the correct force, in the required precision, with an appropriate joining stroke.

In the field of electromechanical press-in units, DSM covers a force range of 50 N to 120,000 N. In line with requirements, we equip the press-in unit with a greater stroke, return stop or electromechanical brake. Thanks to in-house production, customer-specific designs are possible.
