Clamason have invested in a new 400t press. This key acquisition is in accordance with a wider company strategy geared towards the EV component market.

Our output is becoming ever more complex, necessitating larger tooling to produce a finished part using a single progression tool.

And 2023 will mark a significant milestone for the business, new machinery coinciding with an ongoing site expansion in Nitra, Slovakia.

The GTX series is a line of high-speed, high-precision mechanical presses that are designed for a variety of applications such as punching, blanking, and forming. They’re built with a double-crank mechanism and straight-sided design – providing reliable, high-quality production.

Forecast to be operational in Summer 2023, the new 400-tonne machine will encompass a full stamping line – including the latest in decoiling and straightening technology. This complements existing high tech processes including the trademarked ATC100 cleaning process and laser KTL paint removal cell.

Both of those will play a key roll in the expansion of producing complex components for electric vehicle and hybrid components at Clamason Slovakia.

Known for its productivity, reliability and operability, the GTX 400 has a number of benefits for customers – as well as machinists.
The state-of-the-art press offers…

  • Improved flexibilities to deliver a variety of cutting solutions.
  • Better stamping quality to produce high-calibre components.
  • Noise and vibration reduction for safe operation.
  • Prolonged tool life to create long-term value across production cycles.

The GTX 400 is produced by Chin Fong, a Taiwan-based manufacturer of mechanical presses.
Founded in 1960, the company specialises in the design and production of high-performance presses for a variety of industries, including automotive, electronics, and metalworking. Chin Fong’s presses are known for their precision, speed, and energy efficiency, and the company offers a wide range of models to meet the needs of different customers.
