Efficient press lines with press automation from DREHER Automation
Large press lines are the giants of forming systems. An interlinked process consisting of several forming presses can also be profitable for smaller pressing plants. After all, press interlinking is also possible with C-frame presses. In this case, the reason for the distribution of the individual tool stages over different forming presses is not because of the size of the tools or the required pressing force. Rather, the reason, alongside the very high flexibility of these types of concepts, is usually the significantly greater cost-efficiency achieved when producing small and medium quantities.
Blank handling has been one of our core competencies for over 50 years. At DREHER Automation, we always have an overview of the complete forming process. Whether you are looking for small structural or large body parts, we can supply your perfect system solution.
Press interlinking - Success with various automation conceptsDepending on the size of the forming presses to be interlinked, DREHER Automation offers the user a wide range of automation concepts for press interlinking

Alternatively, based on our transfer systems, we offer our customers automation concepts with one-sided or two-sided transfer systems featuring a continuous transfer rail or individual transfer units. However, in general, our customers always benefit from the absolute flexibility of our automation technology. It does not matter how many axes need to be controlled or whether special sequences (e.g. crossbar sequence) will be carried out. Irrespective of whether the system is position-controlled, angle-synchronous, time-controlled or dynamic: DREHER Automation will always provide you with the right solution.
Small press lines with C-frame presses from DREHER AutomationIn the C-frame press interlinking sector, in addition to continuous press automation and our competent project management, we also offer you a technically and economically coherent overall solution featuring C-frame presses.
Your benefits: You receive a conclusive overall concept, customized to your specific application, from one source. Not only do we ensure the optimal combination of individual plant components. We also provide you with an integrated control concept from DREHER Automation for the entire press line.
Comprehensive control concept for a highly productive overall processOur control concept developed together with Siemens completes our comprehensive system concept across all system components. An integrated control concept has been developed in close cooperation with Siemens. It consists of the Simotion D motion control system, inverters from the Sinamics S120 family and the latest generation of energy-efficient servo motors from the 1FK series.
At DREHER Automation we appreciate the productivity-enhancing advantages of user-friendly and self-explanatory operation and visualization. For this reason, our system visualization is realized on spacious touch panels at a central location via WinnCC (TIA portal). Synoptics for automatic operation and sequence synoptics for tool changes are mandatory for all our customers.
Our systems are renowned in the industry for their longevity. This is also guaranteed by our excellent After Sales Service. For “just-in-time support”, all our systems are equipped with remote maintenance access.
