HOTFORMER PROVIDES HIGH PART OUTPUT
HOTmatic AMP 20 N, a machine specifically designed for the manufacturing
of forged cam lobes, aims to improve the efficiency and productivity of suppliers in the automotive industry. The machine has a total press load of 1500 kN,
an impressive production speed with the highest precision. In three forming
stations and with a maximum of 200 strokes per minute, the AMP 20 N produces cam lobes with an outer diameter of up to 48 mm out of raw parts with
24 to 217 grams. While the AMP 20 N is an ideal machine to produce forged
cam lobes, it is not a single purpose machine; its flexibility can be used in a
wide variety of applications. The machine’s proven and reliable technology
and fast changeover times ensure a high level of machine availability and
make production operation profitable.
REVOLUTIONARY WELDING TECHNOLOGY
A new welding technology, EBFLOW, offers the possibility of eliminating
the need for a vacuum chamber when joining large structures particularly aimed at the renewable energy generation sectors. This technology has
been demonstrated to weld thick sections up to 250 mm in steels and light
alloys. Welds can be made in a fraction of the time—over 20 times quicker
than conventional arc welding methods. This will enable manufacturers in
several sectors to gain massive increases in throughput that will change
their business models and unlock the true manufacturing potential of their
As filler materials are not needed, consumable costs are kept down to a
minimum while reduced transportation costs and a smaller factory carbon
footprint offer further savings.
