NIDEC ARISA S.L.U. Wins an Order for the World’s Largest Class Servo Press

Nidec-Shimpo Corporation today announced that one of its subsidiaries, NIDEC ARISA S.L.U, a Spain-based large-size press machine manufacturer headquartered in Logroño, Spain (“ARISA”), has received an order for the world’s largest class servo press with a pressurizing capacity of 4,500 tons from Gestamp Automoción, a major manufacturer of metal automotive components based in Madrid, Spain (“Gestamp”). This servo press is scheduled to be delivered to Gestamp’s Bielfeld plant in Germany in December this year, and operate in its automotive component production line that processes high-strength steel plate.

To enable the ordered servo press to process high-strength steel plate, we installed two slides and three uprights in this single press machine, and successfully addressed the issue of uneven loading, which could easily occur to a multiple-process transfer press. Additionally, using independently developed software to control multiple servo motors, we achieved high processing accuracy and productivity based on a large, nine-megawatt output.

Since joining the Nidec Group in 2015, ARISA has been receiving a rapidly increasing number of orders from European and other places’ automotive component manufacturers. The Nidec Group is poised to further strengthen synergies in sales, development, production, and service operations among the three brands of ARISA, which operates in Europe; MINSTER, a high-rigidity press machine manufacturer in the US and other countries; and KYORI, renowned especially in Asia and elsewhere for its super-fast precision press machines, and support the increasingly diversifying manufacturing system based on our tripolar global business management system.
