Reconditioning this large press was a highly stimulating challenge for the engineers in the Galbiati Group. The objective was to modify an old deep drawing Weingarten press, used in a large factory in Germany, and adapt it for blanking lamination. Our engineering department designed the required changes, updating the technology of the machine by adding an automatic extraction system for the blanked disk. The press was completely overhauled in our plant. Once reassembled in our factory pit (13 m high), the machine was thoroughly tested to ensure that all functions performed to the customer’s specifications.
At this point, the press was dismantled and transported to the end-customer’s plant in Hungary. Here, all large dimension parts had to be moved in through the roof as they could not fit through the normal access to factory premises. Then the press was reassembled, commissioned, and the final tests performed for customer acceptance.
