Automated Ram Height Adjustment Solution

Marposs and Bruderer Machinery North America have established a partnership that enables Bruderer presses to be sold with an integrated Marposs Brankamp process monitoring solution featuring a special automated ram height adjustment. Developed cooperatively, this feature uses special control algorithms to carry out a step-by-step adjustment of the ram height.

The system automatically compensates for variation in sheet thickness, material hardness, tool and machine temperature, speed, etc. during the manufacturing process. Monitoring systems are an effective method to gain insight into the forming process and its stability, to detect production faults and quality deviations and, if necessary, to intervene in the machine to control it (ram height adjustment).

The Marposs Brankamp monitoring systems for sheet metal processing (stamping, drawing, coining, piercing, blanking and bending) protects the machine and tool from overloads, and detects process disturbances such as feed failures, rising slugs, punch or die breakage, providing 100% monitoring of each individual stroke. This helps operators to immediately identify manufacturing faults as well as part or tool variations, enabling manufacturers to optimize machine efficiency, improve part quality and limit unplanned downtime and tooling costs.

Bruderer Machinery's SBT line of presses, featuring patented technology, are available with speeds of up to 2,500 strokes per minute and 250 tons capacity. These systems are suited for a variety of applications, including components for the automotive, electronics and food service industries. The presses are available with optimized feeders, controls and support in the planning of complete production systems.

Brankamp, founded in 1977 and acquired by Marposs in 2012, is a Marposs Monitoring Solutions GmbH brand marketed through the Marposs worldwide network.
