tom-dead-center accuracy, and mini- mizes backlash for consistent accuracy in pendulum mode.
Beyond that, beefed-up construc- tion allows the press to withstand the force generated when stamping the latest high-tensile-strength materials, and an operator-friendly HMI provides the ability to quickly choose from high- ly customizable slide-motion profiles.
But again, it is the speed that has most impressed Wiegel and WTW.
“For the specialized type of work that we perform, we could find no other option than this press due to its speed and versatility,” Wiegel says. “For stamping that requires 100-ton capac- ity and up, we will only purchase servo presses.” MF
