Hatebur (Reinach, Switzerland) presents the servo hydraulic bar stop, designed to make metal forming manufacturers more productive. According to the company, the servo hydraulic bar stop optimizes the shear surface and boosts the quality of forged parts. That facilitates and speeds up the quality control and can make post processing obsolete. The technology enhances the productivity of manufacturers, and will be offered on a variety of machine types.
Thanks to the innovative servo hydraulic bar stop, the tilting and oblique positioning that often occurs during shearing can be drastically reduced, and the surfaces are now virtually parallel. In addition, the shearing process is incredibly fast: Depending on the bar diameter and the machine speed, it takes between 60 and 100 milliseconds.
