Fully automatic handling and testing of disc springs
31 July 2020
A spring manufacturer recently commissioned servo press and automation specialist, IEF-Werner GmbH, to develop a complete solution that involves the fully automatic testing of punched disc springs for characteristic values.
The result is a system that consists almost entirely of IEF's own automation components and runs reliably at high cycle rates around the clock. Solutions from IEF-Werner are available in the UK from value-added reseller, RARUK Automation.
Every machine and device is born from an idea. In the development process, this idea takes shape and finally becomes a production-line reality. The engineers at IEF-Werner GmbH adopt this ethos for every project, in line with specific customer requirements and regardless of complexity.
"In many projects, we’re on board from initial contact to final commissioning," says Frank Neugart, Product Manager for Servo Presses at IEF-Werner. This strategy proved no different when a request arrived to provide a completely automated solution for the testing of disc springs.
Once the initial concept and design had been agreed upon, the test system was set up at IEF-Werner’s technical centre in Furtwangen, where the implementation process began in close co-operation with the customer.
