Fixture hardening

Fixture hardening presses and fixture hardening systems with 4-axis guiding for highest component precision

The heart of the fixture hardening presses consists of a one-station press with a range of 250 kN – 2,000 kN. They form the platform for the multi-station press systems. Wickert also provides complete systems including the whole of the periphery complementing the hardening presses.

Your competitive benefits with Wickert fixture hardening presses

  • High component precision thanks to 4-fold guide columns and deflection resistant pressing frame.
  • Homogenous inflow of the components thanks to flow-optimised base dies with component-specific interchange parts.
  • Huge flexibility thanks to hydraulic component lifter in the press – also good for safely feeding in and out complex geometries.
  • Fast tool change thanks to automatic tool clamping.
  • Comprehensive quality assurance thanks to the monitoring of the crucial quality parameters with the help of tolerance bands and envelope curves.

The following parameters are monitored within the base die:

Hardening oil temperature, hardening oil flow rate, hardening oil operating pressure, time to first oil, hardening time, holding pressure and ejection pressure
