Upsetting

Reduce cycle time, scrap costs and tool wear, and improve finished product quality.

Upsetting press technology

Fast, precise forging

A hydraulic press delivers a continuous, controllable punch – ideal for precise forging. In this press, the two side cylinders are servo-controlled and have a precision better than +/- 0,1 mm – even though they move with a speed of up to 120 mm per second!

The system features 3 individual forging functions:

  • one clamping/preform
  • two extrusion/upsetting functions from the sides

3 complete main systems: one clamping cylinder and two side cylinders for tools

Great flexibility
