CASE HISTORY: VATRON HAS CHOSEN SIMASV® PRECISION


THE ACTORS VATRON GMBH, Austria - Access to precision VATRON GMBH is an Austrian company whose core expertise is in the innovative development, production and startup of mechatronic measurement and control devices for industrial systems. Thanks to high-tech equipment and the many years of experience of highly skilled employees, the company is able to propose standard or highly specialized system solutions, always focused on customers’needs. Technological expertise combined with innovative solutions makes vatron one of the leading companies in the optimization of industrial plants. S.I.M.A.S.V. S.r.l., Italia – A 55 year-tradition in Metalworking S.I.M.A.S.V. S.r.l. is a company that has been producing since more than fifty years machinery for metal working and forming. In 1962 the company has entered the market the very first prototype of horizontal hydraulic press for bending and cold forming of profiles of various kinds. SIMASV ® presses have been a real revolution in the field of cold deformation and due to their extreme versatility gave their input for developing a line of equipment and applications that enable the realization of a wide range of processing . S.I.M.A.S.V. today is a company of established international reputation, which has a large production of machinery for the metalworking - more than thirty models of bending presses, notching, bending, punching and bevelling machines - and has numerous patents, the result of a policy of avant-garde technology and attention to quality. THE CHALLENGE The task commissioned to the company vatron gmbh was to design and build a semi automated testing machine for bending tests for VOESTALPINE STAHL GMBH. Therefore the challenge was to find in the market an horizontal bending press whose adjustment was controlled at 100% and whose working precision was absolutely reliable and consistent over the time. The engineering teams from VATRON and S.I.M.A.S.V. have started a long and synergistic work together to choose the most suitable equipment for the application, then to locate it in the line and harmonize it with the automated line commands. VATRON thus needed to find a manufacturer of high precision presses who was able to collaborate with the company to adapt the machinery to the automated structure of the plant. For S.I.M.A.S.V. the challenge was to suggest the most high-precision machinery and to intervene after to calibrate it on a technological structure that was not of its own production. THE WINNING SOLUTION The chosen SIMASV® machine for this project was the HORIZONTAL HYDRAULIC BENDING PRESS T70 DIGIT: since the precision was an absolutely fundamental requirement, it became evident that SIMASV® bending presses are the only machines in the market that are equipped with a stroke micrometric adjustment so accurate in measurement to enable to produce prototypes in line for the big series. The HORIZONTAL HYDRAULIC BENDING PRESS T70 DIGIT has well fit to the line context thanks to the versatility of programming devices and to the special applications it can be equipped with. VATRON and S.I.M.A.S.V. have therefore put their technological expertise and creativity at the customer’s service by building together a successful high precision customized product.
