Schuler to Supply Turnkey Press Line
After heating the billet to 1250°C, a preform is forged in two stages with press forces of 5,000 and 10,000 metric tons. The forming process is then continued on the wheel rolling machine. Finally, a flanging press with a force of 5,000 metric tons gives the wheel its final shape and at the same time punches the hub. The central control desk allows user-friendly and effective monitoring of the entire line. All relevant process data can be quickly accessed using the extensive data-management and data-archiving system.
