Troy, MI (October 23, 2020) – MetalForming Magazine and SIMPAC America, North American subsidiary of South Korea’s SIMPAC Inc., inform readers about the continual relevancy of mechanical press systems despite the current industry’s focus towards servo solutions.

“Mechanical presses are still highly recommended for the ever-growing EV market as these presses have proven capabilities to handle the aluminum and high-strength steel required for battery production and also other general stamped parts,” explains Stephan Robertson, General Manager/VP of Sales & Operations at SIMPAC America. “SIMPAC enjoys working closely with our customer base and finding optimal and flexible solutions for their specific needs. Servomechanical presses are very expensive, and press manufacturers truly catering to the customer understand that servo technology is not always the best solution for the production of various products.”

Read the full article for which SIMPAC showcases examples of its mechanical press portfolio with press capacities ranging from 39-3,375 US Tons. Or, find the hyperlinks below for the technical specifications of SIMPAC’s recommended mechanical presses: the CS Series, MC Series, and DTE Series.
