Total Transfer Knowledge The Evolution of Transfer Presses
"A transfer press should have the capability to eliminate production problems to avoid shutdowns, as well as enhance the work ratio to increase unit and time productivity by reducing die changeovers."
Historically when a stamping job shop required an automated press system, its choices were limited to progressive-die operations equipped with coil feeders or transfer-die operations with transfer feeds on a straight-side press. Some years ago gap-frame presses with an automated transfer system emerged as a third option. Since then industry demands have pushed the evolution of transfer press technology.
