A machine for manufacturing bulk metal forming parts (a cross rolling machine with flat jaws) will be used as an example to demonstrate the idea of retrofitting metal forming machines that is based on linking single mechatronic components to one overall mechatronic system. The purpose of retrofitting was boosting the machine's performance range while expanding its functionality. Ideas for applications will be developed supported by simulation and based on an analysis of the machine's system to evaluate how they fit into the overall system. The foremost features of the machine under analysis are the cascade-shaped regulation of the main hydraulic machine and secondary axes using decoupled physical factors and the decentralized control structure distributed physically over several levels. Selected experimental findings will demonstrate that this overall mechatronic system can be used in practical applications.
