The rubber industry within North America is getting more and more important for Wickert. A wider and more active customer base is interacting together with Wickert on potential projects or new process ideas in regards of compression or transfer molding for rubber.
Not only the presses are getting more user friendly and more energy efficient at Wickert.
Also the production environment is improving in the same way. For this reason Wickert released an energy efficiency investment project together with the European Union (Fund for regional development EFRE).
Injection Transfer Molding (ITM) has tangible advantages. Assuming the parts are suitable, the ITM press molding system offers a particularly economic return on investment than that of other presses for molded parts and pure injection molding.
This year the WICKERT “Fixture and Hardening Presses in Operational Practice” seminar was again presented for a second time at the beginning of May, due to the large interest from the first event, that took place in 2015.
A Wickert composite press, with a press force of 25,000 kN that builds up within one second, was purchased by the Institute for Lightweight Structures (IST) at the Mechanical Engineering Faculty of the Technical University of Chemnitz.
Wickert Hydraulic Presses looks back on a successful show in Paris. The JEC World exhibition is one of the major exhibitions worldwide for lightweight materials.
A global manufacturer of custom Hydraulic presses and Systems for the molding industry, has developed a line of precision High-Temperature Vacuum Heating (HTVH) Presses.
The manufacturing chain developed by Landau-based Wickert combine component forming and hardening in a single work process. Using controls to network all steps in a process not only allows comprehensive component tracking, but also provides continuous process data acquisition.
