Seminar "Fixture and Hardening Presses in Operational Practice"

This year the WICKERT "Fixture and Hardening Presses in Operational Practice" seminar was again presented for a second time at the beginning of May, due to the large interest from the first event, that took place in 2015.

This conference was presented on the edge of the Palatinate Forest. WICKERT gave all the visitors the opportunity to participate the seminar in this relaxed and peaceful setting.

The focus of this seminar was on press hardening. Presenting the new production technologies, including the innovations in this area, with lectures about the agricultural sector, metallurgical and structural aspects were further enhanced by the viewpoint of a furnace manufacturer.

The program was rounded out by introducing the attendees to new tool and machine concepts of press-hardening in reference to construction and wear parts.

Representatives from all areas of the heat treatment branch were among the participants and complementing, the lectures, it was also very interesting having an exchange of experiences in heat treatment by the attendees.

WICKERT Maschinenbau GmbH, founded in 1901 with headquarters in Landau in der Pfalz, Germany, manufactures hydraulic presses and fully automatic press systems for the press- and fixture hardening industry. Wickert also builds presses for hot working of wear parts and components in agricultural engineering. WICKERT covers a wide spectrum ranging from simple presses with manual loading through to fully automated systems. As well as fixture hardening presses, feeding systems, workpiece buffers, cleaning machines and blasting machines are also integrated into the fully automatic systems.

Supported by 160 employees, WICKERT manufactures presses up to a total pressure capacity of 110.000 kN. The primary market locations are Central Northern Europe and North America. WICKERT is a vertically integrated manufacturing center, from engineering department, which represents a quarter of the workforce, with integral machining of critical components, control cabinet construction, hydraulic system construction, to final assembly and machine certification for critical systems.
