Press Information & Overview

Two-Point Unitized Frame Stamping Presses AIDA N2-2000
  • Highly rigid frame
  • 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 safety controller
  • Quill mounted flywheel with a flywheel brake
  • AC variable frequency drive

AIDA NS2, two-point unitized frame mechanical presses are available from 110 through 300 tons capacity. 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 nearly 7,000 AIDA servo and mechanical presses and forming system equipment installations in North America, it is easy to see that AIDA presses are an industry standard.

6-Point Slide Guide System

6-Point Slide Guide System Simple, Yet Effective Slide Guide System for Stamping Presses

Extra-long gibs with extensions on the slide minimize "tipping" of the slide within the guides and provide superior off-center guiding vs. industry standard

AIDA Wet Clutch and Brake

AIDA Wet Clutch and Brake High Single Cycle Rates, Low Mainenance

High performance torque transmission system for mechanical press drives. Very little heat generation and component wear so performance does not deteriorate over time.

Ball and Socket Connections

Ball and socket connections Improved Design When Compared to Wrist Pin Connections

Eliminate one of the largest maintenance costs of a stamping press: the wrist pin slide connections. Designed to withstand the rigors of heavy stamping.

AIDA hydraulic overload protection system (HOLP) diagram Hydraulic Overload Protection System

AIDA's press technology - the industry's fastest protection system. When overload occurs, oil evacuates 360 degrees around the ball seat with minimum oil flow resistance as compared to conventional systems

More about HOLP System

Quill Mounted Flywheel

Quill mounted flywheel Increases the Life of the Flywheel and Main Driveshaft Bearings

The flywheel is mounted on a quill that is attached to the press frame. The driveshaft passes through the quill and operates in an oil film bearing.
