General Manager Martin Klein said Magna Automotive Stity maintains its leading position as a valued supplier because of an emphasis on efficiency.
“We have similar goals as most suppliers, and that is to produce as efficiently as possible with minimal downtime,” he said. “Our benefits generally include a long-term stable team, a friendly team and an emphasis on a clean working environment.”
And according to Machine Technician Miroslav Tejkl, their newest press line contributes to increased efficiency.
“The press supplied by Nidec Arisa is the first press from this supplier and has the highest pressing force (16.000 kN) from our current presses in our plant,” he said. “The press is equipped with a microfeeder, and we are very satisfied with this equipment because it helps us to reduce material costs.”
The Arisa servo press at Magna features a six meter bed, two torque motors and double reduction with a Desch Planetary Gearbox. The press reaches 30 s.p.m. in sinus and up to 51 s.p.m. in pendulum mode.
“On this new press we will produce a very similar portfolio of products which we have been producing up to now,” Klein said. “We expect to reduce downtime during the semiautomatic die and coil change.”
