Engel Diversified Realizing ROI on 330 Ton Unitized Frame AIDA Servo Press

An October FFJournal Magazine article by Lynn Stanley details the ROI Engel Diversified Industries, Inc. is realizing on their recently installed 330 U.S. ton unitized frame direct drive AIDA servo press. Metal stamping is the heart of Jordan, MN based Engel Diversified, a family owned Tier 1 & 2 contract manufacturer. A few of their AIDA servo press successes include:
• minimizing springback with AIDA's multiple restrike motion profile, which is particularly helpful for high-strength steels
• utilizing the DSF-N2-3000 press's infinite programmability to dwell at the bottom of the stroke during forming, producing better quality parts & eliminating some progressive die tooling stations
•moving a 1-1/4 in. deep stainless cup from a hydraulic press to their new AIDA servo press, eliminating 1 draw & a trim operation
•achieving a 60% throughput increase by moving an automotive running board bracket from a mechanical press over to pendulum mode in their AIDA servo press
•extending tool life by slowing down the speed only during forming to minimize shock & vibration

Presses Demonstrate AIDA's Industry Leading Stamping Press Technology at FABTECH® Mexico 2019, AIDA-America Booth 408

AIDA-America, Dayton, OH, USA, will demonstrate industry leading press technology in booth 408 at FABTECH® Mexico 2019.

Two AIDA Presses will be demonstrated at this year's FABTECH® Mexico event, taking place from May 7th through 9th at Cintermex International Convention and Exhibition Center, Monterrey, MX.

The first, an AIDA NC1-800(2)E, 80-ton, mechanical gap frame press is part of AIDA's high quality, industry leading gap frame press line, with models ranging from 35 to 250 tons. The fastest acting hydraulic overload protection (HOLP) in the industry at 10 ms, a highly rigid frame with low angular deflection, and the tightest clearances available in a gap frame press, which minimize reverse tonnage, are just a few standard features of these presses.
AIDA NC1 Gap Frame Mechanical Press The second is an 80-ton AIDA gap frame servo press, model DSF-C1-800, and part of AIDA's gap frame servo press line, with models ranging from 80 to 250 tons. Utilizing the same mechanical drive train of the tried and true NC1 mechanical gap frame, these DSF-C1 series direct drive servo presses combine the versatility of an open die space area with the flexibility of the freely programmable servo motion. The DSF-C1-800 press will be blanking parts, demonstrating AIDA's Silent Blanking motion profile, which can only be achieved on a servo press. This demonstration will also highlight the versatility of AIDA servo presses. AIDA DSF-C1 Gap Frame Servo Press Additionally, AIDA will be exhibiting its exclusive Allen-Bradley based servo press control, the latest in servo press control technology, for servo presses from 315 - 3,500 tons. This fully operational and interactive Allen-Bradley control will demonstrate several servo press stroke motion profiles in real-time on a virtual press.

Knowledgeable AIDA associates will be available to demonstrate both presses and the Allen-Bradley servo press control, share their features and benefits, and explain the advantages AIDA's top quality presses can bring to any pressroom. Register to Attend FABTECH® Mexico
