Honda Engineering Co., Ltd. developed an innovative servo press line that achieves the world’s highest level of productivity in producing deep-drawn automotive body panels. The innovative press production system was made so that the press forming conditions and panel transfer motions are adjusted to the dies very accurately for each part to be produced. The servo press line is planned to be expanded to Honda’s production plants on a global scale while allowing further evolution.
