Case Study: Effectively Decreasing Reverse Tonnage



A tier 1 automotive supplier was experiencing a serious issue with reverse tonnage. Their Komatsu 2000 ton press had reverse tonnage of 312 tons resulting in increased press wear and the looming possibility of down time. Unsure of what to do, the supplier reached out to W-Technologies to see what we could do. After a phone call and a technical assessment of the press’ operations we were able to come up with an effective solution. The press now has a total of 4 - H250 Hydraulic Shock Dampers. This resulted in an 87% decrease in reverse tonnage to only 40 tons, which is now only at 2% of total press capacity.
