|Products & Services|
The international focus of the special purpose machine development is on fully automated 3D straightening systems for aluminum components in the automotive industry.
More than 130 straightening machines with forces up to 130 tons are currently in operation worldwide for the following component types:
Different straightening techniques are combined depending on the part specification or part distortion type:
In each case, each system is designed individually and optimally for the part in question.
|References and export activities|
Laubinger + Rickmann’s machines are on site with our customers worldwide. In 2020, the export share was about 70%.
Thereby, the straightening machines are in use from Asia to America for the plants of all German OEMs, but also especially at TIER 1 and TIER 2 suppliers and thus part of the process up to the latest BEV startups. In fact, everywhere where parts are getting bigger and more complex, wall thicknesses thinner and tolerances tighter.
The professional knowledge of L+R’s experts is already actively utilized in the development of new parts or casting processes.
OEMs who cast themselves and expand the use of aluminum for structural components, or want to increase the degree of automation in existing straightening processes.
OEMs who are interested in the possibilities and limitations of the straightening process.
Structural components in die casting
Manufacturers of extruded aluminum profiles
In the words of our customers: L+R’s self-learning straightening software is unique on he market. It continuously adapts to different deformations and material properties, optimizes the cycle time and minimizes the load on the part and machine.
