High precision for all dimensions

Wedge presses type KP – nominal force 20 to 160 MN

What makes our KP wedge presses stand out is their extremely high forging precision. You can also rely on high productivity because the machines apply the full nominal force to several dies in a row.

Way ahead of the competition
Our wedge presses are perfect for forging long parts that demand close thickness and offset tolerances over the whole length. Typical fields of application here are twin con rods, front axles for trucks, crankshafts, balancing shafts, camshafts, and other precision forgings.

Your benefits at a glance

  • High longitudinal rigidity
  • Large wedge surface area for greater connection with the ram and exceptionally broad force distribution
  • Flat wedge surfaces permit a wide die space with minimum ram tilting
  • High productivity due to fast stroke rate
