The heat treating of steel continues to play an increasingly important role in the automotive industry, machinery and plant construction and tool construction – especially since it allows superior performance at lower weights. The area of fixture- and press hardening has evolved in recent years and decades, receiving particular attention in the industry.
It was therefore almost to be expected that the specialist seminar organised by Wickert Maschinenbau GmbH in cooperation with IBW Dr. Irretier GmbH in Landau on 7 and 8 May “Fixture- and press hardening” was met with great interest, attracting visitors from the field. Over 30 experts from Daimler, Magna, SKF or ZF, for example – from Germany and Austria – took the opportunity to learn about process and plant technology in fixture- and press hardening in practice-orientated lectures. The opportunities and advantages offered by this process in particular in terms of dimension- and shape stability of the components were the subject of lively discussion among participants.
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 150 employees, WICKERT manufactures presses up to a total pressure capacity of 100,000 kN. The primary markets are in Central and Northern Europe, USA and Canada. WICKERT has everything you need in one place; in addition to an engineering department, which represents a quarter of the workforce, there are also divisions for mechanical processing, control cabinet construction, hydraulic power packs construction and final assembly.
If you are interested, WICKERT Maschinenbau GmbH will be happy to send you the seminar documentation.
