Press Information & Overview

High Quality, Industry Leading Mechanical Gap Frame Presses AIDA NC2-2000, 200 Ton Gap Frame Mechanical Press
  • Highly rigid frame with low angular deflection
  • Fast acting HOLP system (10 msec)
  • AIDA Wet clutch and Brake
  • 6-Point full length Bronze Gibs
  • Brake stop-time monitoring display
  • Automatic lubrication system for Gibs and Crankshaft Bearings
  • AIDA MPC/SVC safety controller
  • Quill mounted flywheel with a flywheel brake
  • AC variable frequency drive

AIDA NC2 gap frame mechanical presses (also known as C frame mechanical presses) are available from 110 through 250 tons capacity. A compact rigid frame design minimizes the deflection rating and the low overall clearance minimizes reverse tonnage. The six-point slide guide system provides a long useful life. The wet-type clutch and brake provide higher intermittent rates and long life - important factors for hand-fed and top-stop applications.

An AC Variable frequency drive allows for wider speed ranges. The Quill mounted flywheel results in a larger bearing surface. The front to back mounted forged steel crankshaft along with hardened and precision ground gears are well suited for high stress blanking applications. Micro-Inching provides die setting at very low speeds. Additionally, an extensive spare parts inventory in Dayton, OH ensures continuous product support.

With over 3,000 AIDA mechanical gap frame presses installed in North America, it is easy to see that AIDA NC presses are an industry standard.
