Tool life increase by more than six times

In the automotive industry emissions constraints and improved passenger safety require ever lighter yet more stable vehicles. As a result more Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) is being processed and studies show that the amount of AHSS per car is expected to grow from 68 kg in 2009 to over 250kg in 2020.

The increased demand for ever more complex geometry beams and pillars, made from AHSS and delivered to the end user in ever shorter lead-times, means tools are required to spend more time in the press and process higher volumes of steel. Improved quality of tool steels can assist but still falls short of this ever moving goal.

Oerlikon Balzers BALINIT FORMERA PVD coating applied to a forming steel has proven to extend the press life of a tool by over 600%.

A pressing facility in the UK processing numerous for the automotive industry trialed Oerlikon’s new coating on steels used in the production of laser welded 960Mpa Ultra High Strength Steel, they found tool life had improved from 120,000 strokes before tool damage to over 850,000 strokes and still in use. Tool maintenance was also reduced to 20mins every 70,000 strokes as opposed to 120mins every 20,000 strokes with a competitors coating.

The use of BALINIT FORMERA has given the end user a more than 200% improvement in maintenance free production and a significant increase in overall productivity.

The steels in the trial were prepared and coated at Oerlikon Balzers UK facility in Milton Keynes.

Press Techniques to showcase new machinery at Mach 2018

Continuing to resist the temptation of importing machinery from outside the UK (EU) we are pleased to exhibit the ability to build high standard bespoke machine designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom.

We have just installed a automated 8 station transfer line and equipment for the production of oil filter bodies for the truck industry, this line of equipment as allowed the end user to shut down two older lines of equipment and increase the production by 250%.

We have been instructed to build a 225 on hydraulic press and this to be part of a automated line of heavy duty elevating equipment manufacture , this will be installed and working by the end of year therefore still in the early stage of manufacture at the moment.

Our most exciting project hopefully to be exhibited at the exhibition will be our proposed Advanced forming machine which will be capable of 300 tons pressure and infinitely controlled to within 0.1mm of ram position to allow a angular ram off-set of +/- 10.0mm which will be programmable to enable minimum trial and error of production of a component of high tolerance.

Visit us on our stand and view in-depth product videos of all the above items showing the diverse range of equipment supplied by Press Techniques Limited.
