Engaging a service is the easiest and quickest way to achieve improvements. Based on the following service modules, potentials can be uncovered and measures and goals for the future can be defined from them. When it comes to tasks that are performed infrequently and irregularly, a service tends to be the preferred choice in the context of a make-and-buy decision.
Examples of various services with a modular structure give you an overview of the range of services offered below.
The output of stamping presses depends significantly on the parameters selected. Optimally defined parameters require a holistic understanding of the cause-and-effect mechanisms of the system, consisting of metal feeding, slide motion, transfer motions, and the removal of finished parts interacting with the die.
How optimal is your setting? What level is your equipment operating at? Is output being wasted or can productivity be increased by optimizing the settings? What are the causes of this and what measures can be taken to remedy the situation?
Would you like to have answers to these questions and get feedback on how efficiently your presses are being operated in the press shop? Opt for a performance benchmark and get answers to these questions.
The introduction of servo motors in press automation and later also in press drive technology opened up countless possibilities for process, clearance and also stroke rate adjustments. However, in order to exploit the full potential offered by this, the individual line components must be perfectly matched to one another in their interaction with the dies.
The aim of this service is, by optimal adjustment of the machine parameters, the achievement of the best possible
on your forming machine.
You can rely on years of successful and practical expertise in process optimization on a wide variety of machines from different manufacturers.
Would you like to get the maximum out of your transfer press without any detours? Are you tired of revision and optimization loops for new dies or do you want to be able to manage a tool relocation project safely and without unnecessary downtimes? Call on the service of virtual kinematic simulation of machine and die movements. The digital twin of your tool design reveals collisions between the moving machinery and tool components, thus ensuring clearance.
New press line or process concepts often have unique selling propositions and significant potentials. For a better evaluation of the associated opportunities and risks, the part flow from feeding to removal of the finished part can be virtually and kinematically represented. Critical spots become visually apparent and controllable. The complex interaction of all movements can be optimized in terms of timing already in the planning stage and the expected output rate can be calculated.
No matter whether you are faced with the decision of a new investment, a retrofit or the upgrade of an existing press line.
Based on your production goals and the range of products to be manufactured, I will support you with background knowledge from machinery engineering to compare alternatives and select the right manufacturing equipment.
This is where the results of the virtual kinematic tool or press line simulation and the associated investments as well as costs come together. The result is an evaluation of the economic feasibility of an investment in terms of its profitability and payback period. An independent view thereby offers confirmation and the possibility of validating own results.
With the calculation of the force build-up in each tool/operation, i.e. the consideration of the current force acting in each slide position, not only the correct system for the application can be selected and the slide tilting can be minimized. In addition, other process factors such as cutting shock (reverse load) can be visualized. Thus, based on variables determined in the forming method / strip layout, the final forming process can already be designed in a machine- and process-optimized manner.
