Closed-die forging

Forging - Pressing processes
High-quality products for key industries

Famous names such as Eumuco and Hasenclever have represented the epitome of top performance worldwide for more than 50 years. Today, the know-how and technology associated with these traditional brands is pooled in SMS group's closed-die forging operations.

Whether you are interested in eccentric presses, screw presses, wedge presses, all upline and downline forming accessories, or the entire automation technology - SMS group offers everything you need for closed-die forging. What's more, with over 3,100 reference plants built worldwide, we draw on perhaps the greatest wealth of experience in this field.

Drive technology

Closed-die forging presses with MEERtorque®

High torque at low speeds

Here is a sustainable innovation that applies advanced torque motor technology to reduce pressure dwell times.

30 Strokes per minute

Our MEERtorque® for forging presses works on the principle of separating the pure press movement from the energy supply. This is how it works: The forming energy is stored in a flywheel that rotates at up to 110 rpm. Next, when the stroke is applied, a torque motor accelerates the eccentric shaft and the ram to flywheel speed. Only then are these components coupled to the flywheel in a slip-free manner, so the press loses no energy.

Breakthrough in die maintenance

3D spray heads by additive manufacturing at SMS group

Drop forging presses are used, for example, in the automotive industry. The spray head removes scale from the dies, cools the die surface, applies lubricants and dries the dies. The tool cavities of drop forging presses are in part geometrically so complex that conventional manufacturing methods of spray heads reach their limits. This is exactly where additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, reveals its strengths.
