In the past month, Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH has delivered two automatic rim hardness testers to Otto Fuchs KG. They shall be used to test forged aluminium rims, manufactured by Otto Fuchs KG for premium vehicles, such as Lamborghini, Porsche, Rolls Royce, Jaguar.
Hegewald & Peschke MPT GmbH has thus already built seven hardness testing machines of this type. The hardness testers delivered to Otto Fuchs KG test the rims after each individual production step and that along the entire production line. The test specimen is positioned by a robot station already existing at the customer. The cycle time of the tests lies at 30 seconds.
Compared to the predecessor model, the frame was reinforced to minimise bending during the test. The test bench was adapted according to customer preference.
In addition to the production of forged aluminium rims, Otto Fuchs KG has become renowned especially as manufacturer for parts for the aerospace industry, construction industry as well as machine and plant engineering.
