KERS SYSTEM – KINETIC ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEM
Farina Presse has developed and implemented a new highly energy-efficient system applied to hot forging presses.
• Energy-saving, state-of-the-art Kers presses (GLK Model)
• Installation of the Kers system on older presses
How the KERS system works
The traditional presses used in hot forging are not energetically efficient. Indeed, up to 40% of the energy is dispersed into the environment in the form of heat.
The flywheel loses up to 20% of thermal energy during clutch engagement. Another 20% is lost during the braking phase at the end of the cycle.
The KERS Press
The KERS System eliminates all energy losses during press operation. A torque motor starts the forging process without the clutch. In this way, all the energy of the flywheel is used for the forging process.
Moreover, the KERS system conveys all the energy released during the braking process to the flywheel. Thanks to the KERS System, it is possible to reach almost 100% energy efficiency.
