New "Direct Drive" Screw Press with Rotary Linear Motor

Carbide Disc Saws for Billets S Series

This new technology from Ficep extends the long history of Ficep as an established manufacturer of innovative products for the forging industry. This proprietary drive system eliminates the traditional flywheel and brake systems that have historically been part of every mechanical forging press and screw presses.

Features

The proprietary lineal motor drive provides a new degree of simplicity compared to the traditional flywheel systems typical of eccentric forge presses. This new technology provides for the following features:

  • Higher impact speed reduces the wear on the dies.
  • The production stroke can be reduced and still achieve the required energy.
  • Faster cycle time increases the productivity.
  • The optimum energy is programmable with absolute accuracy and repeatability.
  • Reduced operating energy due to the elimination of energy transfer to a flywheel and the friction brake to stop the ram. The force needed to bring the ram to a stop is converted by the liner motor to energy that can be stored and used for the next forge stroke.

Benefits

  • The ability to recover and store energy when the ram is stopped and use that energy for the next cycle has documented overall energy savings of up to 60% while forging identical parts on traditional forging presses.
  • Greater machine reliability is achieved by the elimination of numerous mechanical components and wear parts.
  • System longevity through the ability to program only the required energy which eliminates the possibility of mechanical overloads on forge tools and the press.
