B² smart precision
Expanding our portfolio with fully machined parts
In order to expand the production portfolio and optimize process costs, BLANK decided to acquire a majority holding in BARUM AUTOMOTIVE S.R.L. in Romania at the beginning of 2020. The previous owner family Barth in Binzwangen, Germany, remains a co-partner. The independently operating BARUM AUTOMOTIVE S.R.L. was renamed B² smart precision and Mr. Wolfgang Barth of Barth Präzisionstechnik in Binzwangen and Mr. Alexander Lenert on the part of the BLANK-Group were appointed as the new management.
The purchase was the consequent next step in order to concentrate at one location the external services used in the processing and assembly area which were previously distributed across various service providers throughout Europe. "The close cooperation bundles synergies and allows us to take further steps forward thanks to the excellent know-how on both sides," explains Lenert.

B² smart precision – our services for you
Casting processing at economic conditions
Whether high-temperature and hot gas corrosion-resistant materials, steel alloys, aluminium and copper alloys or titanium alloys: we process all materials quickly and economically.
- Machining of cast parts, but also parts which are milled from the entire solid material
- PECM machining: For materials that are difficult to machine, the use of the PECM process is a cost- effective alternative.
- Deep hole drilling: As the name already indicates, this type of processing is used for components whose bore is deeper than their outer diameter
With us, the customer not only receives simple processing services - we offer the complete package! Therefore, in addition to mechanical processing steps, we also have surface treatment processes in our service portfolio. Depending on the customer's requirements we harden, galvanize, zinc-coat or impregnate your parts.
Beside our core competence mechanical processing, B² smart precision also offers the assembly of your parts to finished assembly groups. By bundling individual parts to ready-to-deliver components we simplify the procurement process for you and ensure efficient and economical provision of your ready-to-install products.
Our range of services here includes the following:
Riveting: This cost-effective type of component assembly can be used in both the automotive and industrial sector for various component parts. Beside using an additional rivet head part, a rivet head can also be designed onto the casting and cast with the casting part.
Welding: Our welding processes are diverse and always oriented to the requirements of your product. Among others, we offer TIG welding, laser welding and EB welding.
