With more than 200 references in transfer presses, Fagor Arrasate has been supplying transfer presses for over 30 years, more than 20 of which have been spent manufacturing large transfer presses of over 3,500 tons. Our presses are fully automated. We have our own automations that we have been developing for more than 20 years, such as transfer systems or pick-up destackers.
At Fagor Arrasate, we can offer a 100% FAGOR ARRASATE solution, with a single control architecture for the entire line, optimizing all manufacturing and maintenance operations, taking up a minimum amount of space and ensuring better access to the various accessories of the installation. This ensures an optimal synchronization for the entire installation, resulting in higher productivity ratios and a user experience that is safe and simple.
One of the main requirements to ensure the optimal synchronization of the installation, thereby achieving higher productivity ratios, is to have a fully integrated HMI into the press.
Easy to use, user-friendly and intuitive
Monitoring of the most important variables, allowing for the installation to perform at maximum capacity
Over 1,000 recipes can be stored
Configuration and monitoring of the press and automation (transfer and destacker) on the HMI itself
Accessibility to automation and press maintenance displays
Synoptic displays for transfer and destacker movements
Different HMI access levels for the operator, maintenance technicians and tool manufacturers
FAGOR ARRASATE’s ability to design and manufacture conventional mechanical presses, hydraulic presses and servo presses with a proprietary technology electronic transfer guarantees the highest performance and productivity while taking up a minimum amount of space, ensuring, in turn, better access to the different accessories of the installation.
The large transfer presses are capable of producing structural and chassis pieces from materials such as HSS and UHSS—establishing themselves as an alternative to small-medium size press lines—and even some hot stamping processes.
With more than 15 references of presses of over 30,000 kN, at Fagor Arrasate we have experience in the construction of structures capable of supporting the loads generated by these pieces and materials. Using the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method, we are able to optimize large structures in each installation. The FEA method allows us to detect the areas of the press that endure the greatest stress, allowing us to reinforce said areas in the design phase without running into the problems caused by oversizing.

The installation of an electronic transfer grants us the option to program and store a great variety of cyclograms, biaxis, triaxis, triaxis suction cups, crossbar, etc., thus adapting to the movements and operations required by the dies. This electronic transfer provides great flexibility to this installation, allowing it to manufacture a wide range of pieces. In addition, these are light transfer developments, which seek to respond to our customers’ main concerns:
Fagor has 8 different models for the differently sized installations and pieces to be manufactured. The main features are:
These elements’ optimized design ensures a synchronized process with a positive effect on the system’s productivity. At Fagor Arrasate we offer services for an optimized design of all transfer system components.

There are many critical aspects to a transfer, but one of them is the automation system’s vibration level. To significantly reduce the vibration level of the transfer bar, Fagor Arrasate has developed the anti-vibration bar system. Thanks to this system, we have improved the transfer bars’ behavior making them much more stable.
Within the SYNCRO software, designed by FAGOR ARRASATE, we find the ideal tool to optimize the interference curves between press and transfer, as well as the support needed during the die design phase to avoid unwanted interference. The main advantages of our software’s application are:
SYNCRO optimizes the press stroke, calculates the press cycle and then adapts the transfer motion so that the piece can move without interfering with the press. The use of 3D software provides detailed information on the project and makes it possible to constantly check and update its progress:
All this allows us to obtain the maximum press-transfer synchronism thereby achieving the highest processing speed. In addition, we offer transfer use training to our customers in order to achieve the highest productivity.
The transfer installations are characterized by a high degree of automation and high productivity. In addition to the mechanical press itself and the electronic transfer, this automation process involves other electronic and mechanical components and accessories (such as loaders, stackers, clamps, as well as production software, dies and safety elements):
