Technological Advances at AEO
AEO in Redditch are proud to announce an increase in press capability with the installation of a new 630T Aida Servo press line.
The Aida Servo package enables AEO to optimize, in accordance with the part height, slide motion and stroke length, allowing superior parts forming, increased tonnage and capacity. The superior control of the impact speed on the material available for the Aida Servo package enables increased productivity, improves die life and reduced die maintenance.
The investment will facilitate AEO to diversify into products with higher strength alloys and more complex components. The press also simulates fine blanking and is equipped with roller cleaners to enable changes from Ferrous to Non Ferrous metals. This along with the purchase of a further five 150T Aida presses will enable them to provide a more encompassing presswork solution, which will benefit both their current and prospective customers.
Weller Wheels part of the AEO group, designers and manufacturers of steel wheels since 1969, will also benefit from this technology. Recent growth in Weller Wheels has come from their innovation in designing and developing a spare wheel solution for the AA, on top of the supply of the Big Foot LR defender wheels for the recent Bond movie, Spectre, a solution for the Toyota Hilux and recently, securing a deal with Silverstone UK Experience.
Chris Oscroft , Managing Director said “ It is a courageous decision to make a commitment to invest so much in a short space of time, but with increased orders and volume of pressings enquiries we look to move the company forward into new ventures and support the growth of our current customers in both capacity and technology.’
