Product description

A competitive edge through process optimisation: Global competition places constant quality and cost pressure on manufacturers, and the parts to be forged are becoming ever more complex. By installing automation, costs become calculable and processes more consistent. LASCO is able to tailor its forming machines to accept automation and provide partial or fully automated solutions, for new machines or retro fitting.

Salient features of LASCO automation projects

Accurate control of production speed and output

Increase in productivity through shorter cycle times

Maximising process reliability and operational safety

Repeatable processes and quality control over the entire production cycle through intelligent control and positioning devices

High flexibility of the lines due to quick change-over systems

Short set up and change-over with simple change of grippers and tong inserts

Increase in die life due to stable die temperatures and optional die spray devices

Operators relieved of demanding physical labour and less stresses imposed on machines

Rationalisation and minimisation of manpower requirements to maintain production levels

Optimisation of production processes through custom-made solutions

Low spare part requirements due to modular machine design

Minimising consequences of possible setting errors by safety limit switches and mechanical stops that prevent overrunning of the operating area

Safety: Axial positions are maintained in event of a mains failure or emergency stop actuation.

Covers provide effective protection against ingress of scale, dust, and die spray

Heat protection is provided for robots working on hot forming operations

Convenience: Decentralised process control with signal exchange between components in the process chain which may be administered via master control

Compatibility: Data exchange with other equipment in line and computer networks via bus systems

All products offered by this exhibitor

Cold extrusion press KFP

Today, cold extrusion is an important process for the production of close to shape parts in large quantities. The force-displacement-characteristics, the high working capacity and versatility of the hydraulic press are suited particularly to the cold forming process. Construction features: ~ Rigid more

Hydraulic counterblow hammer GH

The hydraulic counterblow hammer GH is considered for heavy parts demanding blow energies of more than 160 kJ. LASCO was pioneer and inventor of the hydraulic drive system for die forging hammers. Counterblow hammers have an upper and a lower ram, which are accelerated towards each other. The ratio more

Fully automated stretching unit AR

Fully automated stretching unit AR: Consists of a stretching manipulator in combination with a hydraulic multipurpose press, used for making difficult pre-forms in small quantities. Compared with rolling machines, stretch forming is accomplished with simple and low cost tools, which are very versatile more

Electro upsetters EH/EV

Electro up-setting combines heating and gathering of bar material in one process. The practical limits of mechanical upsetting are overcome by electro up-setting. For example, with automotive valves, the ratio of material in head to bar diameter may be as high as 20, and can be gathered in one cycle more

Cross wedge roll QKW

QKW Cross-wedge roll: Cross-wedge rolls are utilised for pre-forming of round billets for subsequent forging, as well as for the near-net-shape production of stepped shafts, and similar symmetrical parts. The rolls driven by two electronically synchronised high torque motors and coupled with low more

Hydraulic multipurpose presses VP/VPA/VPE

The VP/VPA/VPE series embody features which make them suitable for a wide range of applications and options, including automation. VP presses may be considered for scale breaking, upsetting, edge-breaking, pre-forming, material distribution, trimming, and piercing operations, which will necessitate more

Screw presses SPR/SPP

Screw presses with direct electric drive SPR/SPP have applications for forming, straightening, calibrating, parts made of steel, high-alloy materials and non-ferrous metals. Screw presses with direct drive have the rotor of the drive motor connected directly to the flywheel and screw. Lasco SPR more

Die forging hammer HO-U

From a technical and economic point of view, the forging hammer remains an ideal forming unit for the forging industry. A hydraulic hammer delivers maximum forming force with minimum energy consumption, ideal characteristics for forging a wide range of parts. LASCO is the inventor and pioneer of more
