Press Information & Overview

Single-Point, Link Motion, Cold Forging Press, K1-E Overview AIDA K1-E

K1-E Series Press - a high performance cold forging press, enables 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 overload protector in case of unusual overload. The compactness 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.

Flow Control Forming

Photo examples of cold forging parts manufactured with Flow Control Forming Combining Conventional Stamping & Cold Forging

The benefits of Flow Control Forming (FCF) include the ability to produce high precision components with high added value, at lower costs. Both progressive forming using coil stock and transfer forming using blanks are possible with FCF.
