Company details

WELP Armouring Germany 925
Production plants in Germany
Modern production procedures are the foundation of our manufacturing that creates armoured vehicles of highest quality. Our production area consists of 28.000qm² of work space. Our entire vehicles’ passenger compartments are manufactured according to our bolt-in-armour procedure since the bolted connection of individual pieces is much more material-friendly for the base bodywork compared to ordinary welding. Furthermore this allows the removal of individual components for maintenance purposes. All procedures are done in-house.
At module production, armouring components are manufactured precisely to live up to the standards of the independent German "Beschussamt". Our final assembly department allows customization of the interiors according to your wishes and requirements. We offer individualization of the compartment, seats or entertainment solutions as well as other options for your armoured vehicle.
WELP Armouring Shooting test 925
Shooting tests by German “Beschussamt”
Successfully certified to VPAM BRV2009 and VPAM ERV2010 requirements - our armouring solutions are developed by our engineers to protect passengers and equipment inside the car from robbery, abduction, assaults and IEDs (so called car bombs). We focus on our innovative 360°-overlap-protection system which protects passengers from various ballistic scenarios. To meet our high quality standards, all vehicles are tested and certified for safety by the independent German ballistic laboratory "Beschussamt". These tests include around 400 gunshots of different calibres, various grenades, mines and one IED (so called car bomb).
Customized vehicles for individual requirements
Individuality, comfort, luxuriousness and safety combined to meet high quality demands. As experts in the manufacturing of customized body work, we offer luxurious vehicle modifications according to your wishes. Your vehicle will become a breath taking personal unicum. All vehicle types can be enlarged, raised and equipped with customized seats, comfort- and entertainment options. WELP Armouring's experienced specialists only use materials of the highest quality and state-of-the-art technology to modify your vehicles.
WELP Armouring Shooting range 925
WELP Armouring’s in-house shooting range
To be able to carry out comprehensive ballistic testing of material or armoured vehicles, we use our modern state-of-the-art firing range. In this facility we simulate various ballistic and explosive-based threats to ensure materials and production processes during any phase of production are up to the highest standards. With an accredited firing range, we have the ability to test and certify our customers' products.
WELP Armouring’s hot-form technology
Combining efficiency and passive safety in a vehicle solution is a substantial task in automotive engineering. Reducing the vehicle's weight and ensuring optimal safety in a crash often opposes each other. A key approach to accomplish this goal is the use of lightweight components, for example, high-strength and ultra-high-strength sheet materials.

Up to 1.000°C

Among other things, WELP Armouring produces steel components made of specially developed alloy with particular high strength. These alloys prevent projectiles from penetrating bodywork. IndiKar uses press hardening technologies for production. This technology includes heating of raw materials to about 1000 °C and shaping in a press. While shaping, the components cool down and eventually harden.

What advantages does this technology grant?

Compared to shaping process without heat, press hardening grants the following advantages:
• Realization of more complex shapes and optimization of accuarcy and tolerances
• Optimization of sheet metal strength and weight
• Lower strain on components
• Lower shaping forces due to better shaping ratios
• Lower shaping stages in tools
• Dense concentration, partially without further steps
Worldwide after-sales-service at any place and any time
To ensure that your armoured vehicle is operating flawlessly at any time, we offer a variety of courses on care and maintenance of your vehicle. Moreover, our experts will teach you everything about the correct handling of your armoured vehicle in our specialized driver training. Furthermore, we offer an extensive and rapid delivery of high-quality replacement parts and armouring components into your area of operation.
