stamping press line / automatic / high-speed
Presses and robots working harmoniously in continuous mode
A new concept has been developed in the area of transferring shaped blanks, such as the body sides, hoods, roofs and double doors units, thru large press tandem lines. The collaborative work between Fagor Arrasate and Kuka Systems has generated a new top level of performance in stamping lines with big presses or servopresses, operating with highly versatile robots delivering output ratings exceeding conventional systems.
The new working mode concept allows that presses run in continuous mode, reducing the occupied space in the facility, the maintenance tasks and guaranteeing that the robots follow the motion of the presses aytomatically even when the line speeds up or slows down. This simplifies the set up of the automatization and allows the line to adapt itself to the needs of the dies, optimizing the installation in a quick and versatile way.
