The MT 5000 is one of the latest generation of eccentric presses from SMS group. The eccentric shaft and the flywheel are directly driven by dynamic torque motors. This type of drive separates the pure ram motion from the forging energy supply, and combines the advantages of servo presses with those of presses featuring a flywheel and conventional clutch-brake combination. This means the forging process is both highly energy-efficient and resource-friendly. The energy generated during the deceleration phase can be used for the re-acceleration of the flywheel.
Thanks to the reduced number of mechanical components, Musashi Europe benefits from considerably lower maintenance and inspection costs. What’s more, sections of the MT press casing can be easily opened to offer the best possible access. Furthermore, the utilities are supplied via a central energy column, which also provides particularly maintenance-friendly access.
The construction of the robust, FEM-optimized press housing is based on the proven split tie-rod design. Extremely large press windows offer perfect automation capability and allow for easier changes of the die and holder. To enable individual dies to be replaced, the MT 5000 is equipped with a die change arm, which is fitted to the press housing. The integrated die spraying system cleans, cools and dries the dies in precise doses, to achieve maximum forging quality and increase the service life of the dies.
