AIDA Presses | Straightside Mechanical Stamping Presses | ULX

Straightside Press | Precision Press | 160 - 600 Metric Tons

AIDA Straightside Precision Press, ULX The Ultimate in Precision Stamping Presses The major problems in conventional press work are:

The shimmy motion of the slide caused by shocks at the time punches contact the material

The tipping motion of the slide caused by off-center loading

The snap-through during stamping operations

The industry demands:

Improved part quality

Increased die life

Improved versatility of forming systems

The AIDA Solution - The ULX SeriesThe first industry design where the press is more accurate than the die. The AIDA ULX Precision Stamping Press Series is designed to prevent the shimmy motion of the slide or the rotating moment of the crankshaft. The arrangement of the eight zero-clearance spherical shoe type gibs on the slide allows for high-precision forming.
