Features & Benefits

DESIGN - The design is the result of detailed examination of every component of the press. All parts are designed and manufactured using modern computer aided systems. The principal parts are verified by Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

FRAME - The structure is made entirely of welded and normalized steel. Where practical for transport, Series 2MR presses are manufactured from a single fabrication. Larger presses are made in four pieces shrunk together with tie-rods. The tie rod pre-load is applied with hydraulic nuts. Series 2MR presses can be customised in many ways; they have large end windows, and flat surfaces for the fixing of transfer mechanisms, motorized loading arms, coil feeders etc.

GUARDING - The press is equipped with automatic rising screen guards in the die area. The guarding is according to EC regulations. Upon request, guards can be provided with sound-absorbent materials.

DRIVE - The main drive motor is variable speed, controlled by inverter. Other drive motors are available upon request.

FLYWHEEL - Air-cooled clutch/brake unit with a low moment of inertia.

KINEMATICS - According to the specification, the crown can be fitted with a left to right shaft or front to back shafts:

  • Eccentric with fixed stroke
  • Eccentric with automatic stroke change
  • Link-drive optimized for deep drawing operations
  • Speed-link for shearing and blanking operations

LUBRICATION SYSTEM - A progressive centralized recirculating system is used, fitted with filters, feedback switches and fillup point.

SLIDE - The slide is made of welded and normalized steel, with eight point gibs. The gibs can be adjusted in all directions. The adjustment of the slide is by electric motor.

OVERLOAD PROTECTION - Adjustable Overload Protection by a hydraulic system.

DIE CUSHIONS - Many specifications of die cushions can be fitted according to the application

  • Pneumatic
  • Hydraulic
  • Locking at BDC
  • Damping on return stroke
  • Adjustable position, stroke and force
  • Multi stage for high forces
  • Programmable die cushions and systems are can also be offered to suit special applications

QUICK DIE CHANGE - Many systems for QDC can be offered, ether manual or fully automatic. We offer:

  • Die lifters in the bolster
  • Die loading arms
  • Hydraulic tool clamps, manually placed or automatic
  • Push - Pull systems
  • Fully automatic systems with die carts or shuttle tables

ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT - A standard PLC is used for press automation and control. The operator interface is by touch screen, controlled parameters:

  • Press speed setting and display
  • Preset parts and batch counters, non-resettable machine cycles counter
  • Manual and automatic setting of the slide position
  • Electronic cam programmer
  • Die feedback signals
  • Die data archive
  • Alarm display
