First Strokes are done
Shortly before Christmas, the new 16,000 kN servo transfer press at our plant in Tecumseh/US started trial operation with a blank loader. The next step will be the trial run with conveyor system.
The press is the first servo transfer press of our company in North America, which can produce both over blanks and over a conveyor belt system. This provides greater flexibility for the use of this state-of-the-art press technology. In particular, the efficient use of materials was an important decision criterion here.
The press was delivered in September, and the first strokes could still be carried out in December. In addition to the relocation of a large number of forming tools to the new servo transfer press, the focus is now on employee training.
