Römheld Rivi present new service network for Europe, the USA and Asia

The company Römheld Rivi GmbH, specialists in magnetic clamping technology, is presenting its new service network for Europe, the USA and Asia at the K 2019 trade fair. The network comprises 15 service points throughout Europe, and one each in the USA, China and Japan. The service points will provide support for customers in North America and Asia. Among the service technicians, who have been provided with intensive training by Römheld Rivi, are some who speak several languages, which will enable communication in the respective national language. Furthermore, the service points will have access to replacement parts so that Römheld Rivi can provide rapid solutions in the event of any problems. Römheld Rivi will be exhibiting at the K 2019 in hall 11, stand C68.

Growth in all segments, particularly strong in the rubber industry

Last year, the provider of magnetic clamping plates for the clamping of dies and moulds enjoyed growth in sales in all segments of the plastics processing industry as well as in forming technology. And in 2019 again, both order numbers and revenue are considerably higher than last year.

In the rubber industry, demand is particularly high for magnetic clamping plates for high-temperature applications. In this segment, Römheld Rivi remains the only provider on the market. The magnetic clamping plates of the M-TECS series are designed for temperatures up to 80°C, 120°C or 240°C.

Magnetic clamping plates: quick-clamping technology for dies and moulds

Using magnetic clamping plates, all dies and moulds made from ferromagnetic materials can be clamped, and subsequently released, over the full surface and with a high bending stiffness. In operation, they work without any power supply and require only a short current pulse lasting a few seconds for activation and deactivation of the magnets.

Standardisation of the dies is not necessary. The uniform distribution of the clamping force ensures low die wear. Permanent magnets generate a magnetic field that penetrates a few millimetres deep into the mould and hold even heavy mould halves weighing several tons in the correct position and bring them together in absolute parallel. Even moulds with complex geometries can be exactly clamped without deformation.

All magnetic clamping systems are customised by Römheld Rivi using standardised components and are virtually maintenance-free. They can be configured flexibly with regard to size, geometry, clamping force and fittings, and can be delivered at short notice. They can generally be retrofitted on existing machines within just a few hours.
