Wickert offers presses with the appropriate pressing surface and pressing force from a modular system for all conceivable friction lining sizes.
The presses themselves can be customised to the desired output quantity with the appropriate automation concept in multi-cavity nested bonding or manually operated.
An independent single-ram system in the multi-cavity design of the presses guarantees an individual stroke per mould and thus achieves the greatest possible precision in the mould, which results in only a very small thickness variance per lamella paired with a high component output of the system.
The drive concept of the presses is a benchmark in the application, because in addition to outstanding performance during opening and closing as well as pressure build-up and reduction in terms of speed, the energy requirement during the gluing time is reduced to a minimum, which means energy-optimised production. The same applies to the design of the servo-driven automation.
In addition, our systems can be integrated directly or decoupled into the upstream and downstream production processes, such as a connection to the automatic test cell (EOL END-OF-LINE) after hot bonding or before gluing in an inline interlinking system.
Wickert provides the right automation solutions with transfer and transfer handling or cycle time-decoupled component magazines, preheating stations for the friction discs to be bonded, press loading and unloading systems and the appropriate conveyor systems in our product portfolio.
In terms of availability, care is always taken to ensure that the gripper systems are set-up-free or that automatic tool clamping guarantees the shortest possible set-up time.
Preheating stations also enable preheated tools to be replaced. This reduces the heat-up time in the press and therefore makes a significant contribution to increasing system availability.
