This paper focuses on a hybrid-driven servo press, which uses not only a servomotor but also a regular ac motor with a flywheel. A PC-based control system is developed based on both feedback and iterative learning control theories on a prototype. The stamping performance, improved forming ability, and energy saving merits have been verified by the experiment. The results show that the advantages of the hybrid-driven servo press have been validated, such as its energy saving features, flexible punch speeds, and adjustable strokes, for any kind of stamping operations.
