is one of the major trends in the efforts of automotive manufacturers to produce high-strength and lightweight materials. This technology is particularly used in crashelevant areas of vehicles such as B-pillar, transmission tunnel and bumper.
The technical challenges are hidden in the rapid interaction of heating technology, robots, feeders and presses to avoid uncontrolled cooling of the components and scaling.
Whether the press or the entire hot forming line in conjunction with suitable furnace manufacturers, Schnupp has the know-how and the experience. With the newly developed "VertPress" press hardening machine we also offer an alternative to conventional systems, which is characterized by low investment costs with a small footprint and is particularly suitable for small batches and test environments 0,5mm thickness is also possible on this plant ... and this is only one of the further advantages of this new technology.
