Italian manufacturer orders counterblow hammer for large forgings

For more than 50 years, the old counterblow hammer from Bêché — which is now a Schuler brand — has been faithfully performing its duties at the Italy-based Siderforgerossi Group. But now the time has come for a refurbishment of the Busano Canavese production site near Turin — along with a new Schuler DG50h counterblow hammer will be used there to produce large steel and aluminum forgings for the oil and gas, automotive, mining, or aerospace industries. The corresponding order has now been placed by Siderforgerossi.

Managing director Frank Klingemann said: “We are very pleased that our customer has once again awarded the contract to Schuler. Air-powered counterblow hammers are characterised by high availability, as can be seen, after all, from the long service life of the predecessor model.”

Because the drive components are not in the vibration range, there are low downtimes as well as maintenance times and thus a high degree of utilisation. The pneumatic drive also allows a high number of consecutive strokes without a drop in stroke frequency — in the case of the DG50h, up to 36 per min. The energy-efficient expansion of the drive medium during the impact stroke results in an almost unchanged working capacity of 500 kilojoules at different die heights up to a maximum of 900mm. Commissioning of the system, which weighs 355 tonnes, is scheduled for later this year.

The scope of supply also includes an intuitive control system, which Schuler has developed specifically for work-bound forging units. Functions include various impact programmes, monitoring of impact energy, part thickness or temperature, and documentation of die and production data. Access to the operating instructions is possible, as is remote maintenance and connection to the customer’s network.
