Photo of the AIDA K1-E Cold Forging Press PressHigh-Precision Production of Components Over a Long Period of TimeThe AIDA K1-E Series Press is a high performance cold forging press, enabling production of the high-quality parts demanded by today's industries. In order to obtain such high precision, AIDA has increased the rigidity of the frame to prevent slide inclination, and introduced an over-load protector in case of unusual overload. The compact design of the press frame ensures easy installation and meets the necessary requirements of the working environment. All these new features have been developed to produce a stable machine for continual high-precision production of components over a long period of time. The K1-E Cold Forging Press performs efficient and high-precision processing of variously shaped components used in a multitude of applications across many industries.

Meeting the Demand of FlexibilityOne of the principal characteristics of the K1-E Series Cold Forging Presses is its versatility. Systems such as precision slug manufacturing, lubrication treatment, die design and manufacture, slug feeding and removal of finished parts, can be incorporated into the system to suit the individual factory circumstances. As a production partner, AIDA helps to develop and experiment with new methods to backup our customers' improvements in production techniques, with the vast experience of all types of forging processes.
