Lindberg/MPH Ships Hot Stamping Furnace to Gestamp Research and Development Facility

Riverside, MI – July 30, 2019 – Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of an Electrically Heated Four Chamber Hot Stamping Furnace to the Gestamp Research and Development facility located in Auburn Hills, MI. Gestamp is an international corporation that designs, develops, and manufactures metal automotive components.

This hot stamping furnace features one stack of three high heat chambers and one low heat chamber. The maximum temperature rating of the high heat chambers is 1050°C and the low heat chamber is 540°C. Each furnace chamber was designed with load space dimensions of 36” W x 30” D x 8” H.

The furnace is integrated at the Gestamp facility with a robotic transfer system and hydraulic hot stamping press. The four chambers operate independently with the top chamber designated for aluminum treatment. This type of hot stamping system allows the customer the flexibility to treat different steels simultaneously and takes up a much smaller footprint than a continuous system.

“This Lindberg/MPH hot stamping furnace provides uniform heating for a wide variety of high-strength steels or aluminum materials prior to hot stamping or hydro-forming applications. The team at Gestamp has been incredible to work with on this project and we are proud to be their supplier.” – Bill St. Thomas, Business Development Manager

Unique features of this Lindberg/MPH hot stamping furnace include:

  • Hydraulically actuated, independently controlled furnace doors

  • Exterior fans to provide cooling between the four heating chambers

  • Two heating zones of rod-overbend elements in each chamber

  • Allen Bradley Compact Logix PLC with temperature control and logic functions

  • One (1) dew-point monitor connected to sample tubes in each chamber

  • Ethernet and Modbus-485 communication capabilities

  • Excess temperature controller in each chamber
