Meeting demand for larger structural parts
Crucially, the new machines are also enabling the business to meet growing demand for more sophisticated automotive castings.
Dr. Mauro Fassina, Al-Tech. Sales Manager Europe-East from ItalPresseGauss, commented: “We’ve been working in partnership with MOPS PRESS for around 3 years now, during which time they have seen a noticeable surge in demand for larger structural components that require extreme casting consistency and precision to meet the quality and performance expected.
Machines from our TF range provided the perfect solution. In addition to delivering absolutely accuracy thanks to the SC 3.0 shot end system used, the hydraulically driven closing force these machines deliver provides greater stability as the die is closed. The precision achieved through this is ideal for meeting high quality requirements and for minimizing scrap rates – a benefit MOPS PRESS has already witnessed in just a few months".
“I know the MOPS team has also noticed that a great deal of time is being saved thanks to how quickly different dies can be swapped out and clamped in, another feature adding to improved productivity and one particularly relevant to die casters producing varied automotive parts”.
