We are pleased to inform you that NDC is now representing Trim Form Automation (TFA) Europe! TFA Europe is focused on addressing the challenges in power module trim and form automation. The company grew out of Tooling Specialist Derksen (TSD). TSD is a respected supplier of precision mechanical parts and tools with over 20 years of experience in the design and manufacture of trim and form tools.
In recent years TSD has had success with several prototype and production trim and form tools for power modules. They recognized that power modules demanded innovation in product handling and controlled trimming and forming operations that is further complicated by additional processes like optical inspections and laser marking. To address the need for automation, TSD established Trim Form Automation (TFA) Europe and introduced the TFA Flex Line.
