AP&T's engineers have equipped the press with a closed, robust hydraulic system with a small oil volume and few components. Thanks to the modular system, each press can be optimized to use one or more cylinders depending on the application. The new version of AP&T's servohydraulic press is suitable for embossing heat exchanger…
The headset works much like a smartphone. It communicates through Wi-Fi or the mobile network and the user connects to AP&T’s support through Teams or the like. Why not just use a mobile phone then?
During the rebuild process, AP&T technicians disassemble and thoroughly examine the press. They replace worn parts and outdated systems and components before reassembling the press and performing a test run and safety check. All exchanged parts are covered by AP&T's new-part warranty.
Aside from having low energy consumption, the servohydraulic press is also considerably quieter. In addition, it only requires a tenth of the hydraulic oil needed by a conventional hydraulic press.
For manufacturers who produce different components on the same line, and therefore need to regularly change grippers, this system is highly beneficial. One and the same programmable gripper solution is used to handle all blanks, regardless of shape and size. The transition is automatic and takes less than two minutes. 
AP&T, a provider of high-performing production solutions for the sheet metal forming industry, has developed a press-hardening production solution that it says lays the groundwork for providing car manufacturers with lighter, safer, more flexible designs that are cost and energy efficient.
PVI Esskå in Landeryd, Sweden, manufactures chassis and body parts for trucks and uses hydraulic presses supplied and installed by AP&T. In summer 2022, AP&T upgraded and future-proofed one of the company’s press lines by rebuilding the control systems and installing new automation equipment. The investment reduced the line's cycle…
With a modern control system, a 20-year-old production line can perform and have the same availability as if it were new. Shiloh in Olofström, Sweden is well aware of this – they tasked AP&T with exchanging the control system on one of their existing press lines in 2019. 
How can you get the most out of an existing press-hardening line? According to AP&T, a company that develops high-performing production solutions for the sheet metal forming industry, when updating a press-hardening line there is significant potential to shorten cycle times and increase production.
Spartanburg Steel Products automated one of its existing tandem lines with five large presses that were manually operated at the time. The solution was an AP&T SpeedFeeder.
Making cars lighter, more energy efficient and safer is a challenge for the entire automotive industry. American electric car manufacturer Lucid Motors chose a new, innovative technology to address the challenge.
