Since its foundation in 1863 LASCO has been devoting its efforts to the development and manufacture of economical machines for forming tasks in the metal industry and for the production of wall building materials. LASCO has been one of the leading system providers of a comprehensive range of production lines, individual units and automation technology in the global market.
Our customers' demands and expectations are the yardstick for our activities. Our solid technical expertise and experience allow us to find and realise the optimum solution for individual requirements. This applies to the manufacture of machines or lines and automation technology as well as to the modernisation of existing lines.
With LASCO not only as a supplier but also a partner, customers continue to enhance their competitiveness in the global market for decades to come.
Rugged construction, demanding jobs: LASCO offers a comprehensive range of traditional forming machines that are adapted to individual customer requirements and can be automated:
Hydraulic deep-drawing presses are particularly suited for difficult drawn parts and special materials. Specialized in hydraulically driven forming units, LASCO designs deep-drawing presses that are customized to meet even highest demands of sheet metal forming. Press force 4,000 – 40,000 kN.
The hydraulic double-acting hammer HO-U is an ideal forming unit for the forging industry from a technical and economical point of view. Maximum forming force is generated with minimum effort. Due to its forming characteristics, the hydraulic double-acting hammer is a universal forging unit for a wide range of applications.
The cross wedge roll is designed for the preforming of round material and is ideally suited for the finish-forming of e. g. gear shafts, stepped as well as hollow shafts. The QKW can be used both as a stand-alone unit and as an integral part of an automated forging line.
Roller diameter 350 – 1,400 mm.
LASCO machines and lines are characterized by high availability and operational safety. In order to guarantee this in the long term, it is particularly important to us to offer our customers the fastest possible assistance and to be able to provide them with competent support. Remote diagnosis provides
the service technician with valuable information on the actual condition of the system.
The system represents the technically superior alternative to conventional means of communication. Video stream and SmartGlasses enable bidirectional image and sound transmission from the first-person perspective as well as fast and direct troubleshooting by the technician on site. This reduces downtime and ideally avoids production inter-
ruptions. The virtual support by a LASCO expert during the execution of the individual work steps significantly increases the quality of the measure. Furthermore, upcoming repair work can be prepared in a targeted manner.
Already in the engineering phase, automation
systems are optimized virtually for commissioning.
LASCO uses real process parameters for this
purpose. Long before assembly begins, all machine sequences and operating conditions are simulated on the computer.
The use of this method in the development process of machines/production lines detects and eliminates errors at an early stage.
This minimizes correction loops in the engineering stage. Cost-optimized and shortened commissioning on site are the beneficial outcomes.
The "virtual commissioning" technology can also be used for planned changes to the setup of the production line. Changes of products and production processes can already be tested and adapted virtually parallel to production.
