SAG invests in lock production with a high-tech automatic punching press

The facts speak for themselves: with around 12 million compressions a year and 250 tonnes of compressive force, the new automatic punching press at the Velbert site is a heavyweight in two ways: not counting the peripherals, such as various control elements, this state-of-the-art machine weighs a whole 33 tonnes, and is therefore the most powerful machine of its kind of the eight punching presses at Velbert.
