Servos Offer Solution for AHSS Servo mechanical presses provide solid options in combatting tough-metal challenges such as springback, reverse tonnage and more
"AIDA, for example, employs a capacitor-bank energy-management system, where capacitors store energy in DC form, with capacitor sizes based one a user's speed and stroke requirements. Here, the capacitors are charged continuously, and when the servo motors need excess energy, such as when drawing or coining, the capacitor banks bump up the supply."
We're well on our way to running out of adjectives to describe the new steels invading our forming and fabricating operations: high-strength steel...advanced high-strength steel (AHSS)...ultra-high-strength streel. Before super-duper-strength steels hit the market, we've got to learn to tackle what we already have, and develop plans for what's coming..
