The machine can control several process parameters and through these can manage the logic of defect pieces or generate statistical analysis with the recorder values.
The most important parameters are:
- Temperature of the billets to be loaded: a stable temperature of the billets grant a a constant forging quality and has direct influence on all other forging parameters.
- Coring punches penetration time: it is a good marker of the correct execution of the forging process, being directly connected to the energy required by the piece during the whole penetration stroke.
- Punches real penetration force: gives information similar to the coring punches penetration time, and is influenced by the same parameters.
- Final position reached by each punch: it is the most important parameter to judge if a piece is good or must be scrapped. Excess or lack of material are actually influencing this position, as well as loaded billet with not-correct temperature.
The ME Series machines have all features to be competitive in a controlled, modern forging plant, and perform best on medium and small production batches. These machines can be equipped with gas, or even better with induction furnaces, and with these are suitable to forge diversified materials: brass, aluminium, steel, copper, titanium. As an optional, dies thermoregulation units can be integrated with the machine.
