Simulation Software and Force Control System

Fagor Arrasate offers its Syncro software, Visual Stamp and Smart Connect systems, as well as a servo-mechanical cushion designed to reduce energy consumption by 75%.

The Syncro 3-D simulation software optimizes the process between the press and electronic transfer or feeder. This turn-key solution uses an offline virtual model on which the paths and appropriate speed of the press and transfer are calculated to prevent possible collisions with a full simulation of the entire cycle. Hence, during the planning and control of the program run, rates are optimized and greater output is achieved.

Visual Stamp, the force control system on the Fagor press, makes monitoring, control and diagnosis of the stamping and/or cutting process on the press possible in real time through an independent cyber-physical system integrated in the press control. This allows the customer to ensure the press is working in ideal conditions. It also allows the customer to check if incorrect force graphs are due to poor settings on the press or die.

Among some of its advantages, the Smart Connect integrated maintenance system makes it possible to predict future maintenance needs on a machine with a view towards optimal planning without interfering with normal production. "In addition, the system developed by Fagor Arrasate provides maximum confidentiality, security and reliability in the management of information, providing a correct data exchange," said a company spokesperson.

Fagor Arrasate's servo-mechanical cushion is designed to reduce energy consumption significantly since it only consumes 25% of what a hydraulic cushion installation requires. "The notable decrease in consumption is not the only advantage-incorporating the electric cushion facilitates lower maintenance by eliminating the hydraulic unit with approximately 5,000 liters of oil, requiring less space in the press pit," said the spokesperson. In addition to providing a more precise control of the forces, position precision and repeatability are much higher than that of a hydraulic installation."
