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

AIDA 630 Ton Servo Press Installed at Omex Manufacturing ULC Increases Production and Provides Additional Benefits

AIDA-America, metal stamping press manufacturer in Dayton, OH, USA, congratulates Omex Manufacturing ULC on the installation of their first servo press, a 630 Ton model DSF-M2 transfer press. By moving the stamping of an automotive spindle from a mechanical press to their new AIDA DSF Series direct drive servo press, Omex improved their part quality, increased their production speed by over 20 percent, reduced their scrap rate by 1.5 percent, and increased their tool life by 15 percent. To achieve these improvements, Omex partnered with AIDA-America through servo application training and created the optimized motion profile now utilized to form this automotive spindle.

AIDA-America Introducing New High-Volume NSX Series Unitized Frame Press, Plus Demonstrating Near-Net Shape Fine-Blanking and Silent Blanking Motion Profile, Both with its Exclusive Allen-Bradley Servo Press Control at FABTECH® Chicago 2021, Booth D46527

AIDA-America, metal stamping press manufacturer, Dayton, OH, USA, will demonstrate new and advanced industry-leading press technology with multiple presses and control systems in booth D46527 at FABTECH® Chicago 2021.
Visit AIDA-America in Booth D46527 at FABTECH Chicago 2021 to see multiple press demosAIDA's new high-volume, unitized frame NSX press will be on display, along with two Allen-Bradley controlled DSF Series direct-drive servo presses, all powered-up at this year's FABTECH® show, taking place from September 13th through 16th at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL.

AIDA-America will introduce and demonstrate its new NSX 110-ton, unitized frame, mechanical stamping press, which runs at speeds of 120 to 300 SPM with a stroke of 62 mm. Locally engineered at AIDA-America in Dayton, OH, the NSX features a low deflection, one-piece frame and a low deflection cast iron slide. Accuracy and consistent high-volume production are assured using zero clearance roller type slide guides and counter rotating eccentric shafts. Press and die integrity are protected with the inclusion of hydraulic overloads. Ease of installation is provided by the choice of plug and play Wintriss, Link, or Rockwell Allen-Bradley controls, as well as the press's floor mounted design, which utilizes leveling isolators. The automotive, appliance, hardware, consumer goods markets, and beyond will benefit from the applications of this press system.

AIDA-America will also introduce and demonstrate its new DSF-N2-3000A 300-ton, two-point, straightside, direct-drive servo press, part of its new DSF-N2-A Series, showcasing AIDA's exclusive Allen-Bradley control. It will be part of a full progressive die production line stamping near-net shape fine-blanked parts made from 4.5mm thick steel. AIDA's industry-leading servo technology will showcase how AIDA DSF Series servo press accuracy and programmability can be utilized to transition production from a high-cost, labor-intensive machining process to a much more efficient, economical stamping process, presenting the opportunity to dramatically reduce the per piece cost, while also adding flexibility to any pressroom. AIDA-America will be coordinating with Dallas Industries and Pax Products for this demonstration.

Standard DSF-N2-A Series, as well as DSF-C1-A Series, Allen-Bradley control features include an ergonomically designed 12" swing-arm mounted color touchscreen HMI with opti-touch run buttons, an Allen-Bradley servo motion controller on ControlLogix® platform, 125 job recipe storage, a step-feed (CNC handwheel) slide motion control for ease of die set-up, 8 PLS cams, 8 channel die protection with PNP/NPN signals, and display of actual and virtual crank angles. Both models also feature a capacitor-based Energy Conservation and Optimization (ECO) system that reduces peak energy draw.

The second servo press on display, a DSF-C1-1500A, 150-ton, direct-drive gap frame servo press, will be blanking parts with AIDA's optimized servo silent blanking stroke motion profile, which can only be achieved on a servo press. In addition to the above control features, other DSF-C1-A Series highlights include an integrated tonnage monitor (peak only), next generation servo motor with 5-10% higher speeds than AIDA's previous generation gap frame servo presses, and a state-of-the-art Electronic Over Load Protection (EOLP) system that monitors applied torque through the complete stroke to prevent overloading.

AIDA will also 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 19 in. PC touch screen Allen-Bradley control will demonstrate several servo press stroke motion profiles in real-time on a virtual press. Control features include direct access to a pdf of the press manual and display of actual and virtual crank angles.

Knowledgeable AIDA-America associates will be available to discuss AIDA's full metalforming equipment line-up, including examples of production optimization driven by AIDA DSF Series servo presses used in the stamping industry. They will share how AIDA presses can help maximize stampers' productivity and profit in the press room. Please visit booth D46527 to experience first-hand why AIDA continues to be the stamping press technology industry leader. Register for free to Attend FABTECH® Chicago 2021

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
