Warren’s new press

by David Zatz on

The Warren Stamping Plant, close to the Warren Truck plant and Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, showed off its new stamping press on Friday. This was part of a $63 million investment in the 65-year-old facility.

The last press line was installed 15 years ago.

The high-speed Servo Tandem Press is part of a 180-inch press line, the first of its kind for FCA in North America. Construction for began in the spring of 2014 and the press actually started up in December 2015.

The new press line increases capacity by up to around 3.6 million parts per year.  Warren Stamping has 12 other major press lines and three large progressive press lines, for a total plant capacity of nearly 84 million parts annually. More than 2,000 employees work at the plant.

The Servo Tandem Press increases the output rate, reduces press complexity, improves reliability, and cuts energy usage. It can be totally programmed at any position in the press stroke, unlike a mechanical press, which operates at a fixed speed. It also allows faster die changes (around four minutes, rather than 20 in the older presses).

Warren Stamping supplies Windsor, Jefferson North, Belvidere, Toledo, Warren Truck, Sterling Heights, and Saltillo.
