When manufacturing a medium volume of parts, hydraulic press lines are an extremely profitable and efficient alternative
Many sectors, including the car, industrial vehicle, agricultural, domestic appliance, aeronautical and rail industries, frequently need to produce parts in medium batches. Manufacturing a volume on this scale substantially differs, in terms of profit and concept, from the production of long batches and a common mistake is to apply the same formula to both types of manufacturing process. This is particularly clear in sectors in which, depending on the model, companies need to manufacture some long batches and others that are short or medium. It is highly tempting to use the same equipment to resolve both problems but this usually implies a significant reduction in profitability. This is due to various reasons: being used to one type of installation, not being aware of the alternatives, inaccurate profitability calculations, etc.
When manufacturing a medium volume of parts, hydraulic press lines are an extremely profitable and efficient alternative in comparison to other options that may be more productive but they are also proportionally far more expensive; this unnecessary extra cost is unjustifiable as it cannot be recouped. In addition, the distinctive technical features of a hydraulic press guarantee the quality of complicated parts that are difficult to produce due to their geometry, the hardness of the steel, the manufacture process (particularly press hardening) and the necessary material, such as SMCs, IMCs, etc.), frequently making this type of press the ideal solution.
Hydraulic press lines enable greater growth and are more profitable because:
