Design and performance
The Farina forging press (left) ordered by thyssenkrupp Forged Technologies represents one of the world's largest mechanical systems designed for such an operation. The largest forging press built to-date by Farina (right) has a press force of 8,000 tons.
This will be the 10-m high machine designed to deliver 16,000-mt of force, for forming “powertrain-independent” trucks, beginning in 2021.
Once it starts in 2021, the Farina GLF 16000 machine will form truck front axles and crankshafts at thyssenkrupp Forged Technologies in Homburg, Germany.
