The press frame consists of statically safe ground finish head and table plates with four circular columns. The hydraulic system is installed next to the press. Upstroke press version. The piston is integrated into the press table. Control unit, press and hydraulic system are connected by the machine base.
The pressure intensifier‘s dimensions are large enough to enable a piston stroke of approx. 7 mm in one movement. This has proven to be efficient in a series of tests which have been performed. If increased stroke is needed during the execution of tests, the pressure inten-sifier is automatically re-filled via the control software and the current pressure is maintained largely constant during this time (approx. 1 minute).
The supplied press includes a SPS control unit (Siemens) enabling the manual operation of the press in low and high pressure operation. The switch cabinet houses a digital pressure indicator. The press itself has an analogue manometer. All important switching states and values can be transmitted to a PC via the Ethernet interface. The PC, on the other hand, presets target timing and pressure values.
Software for press control via PC
Option: Module heating, integrated in press switch cabinet, consisting of:
The heating system control uses some of the hardware and software components of the press and can only be operated in combination with the press.
Option: Tool handling for shuttle mode operation with two press tools
During production, it is especially rational to use two tools at each press: one tool can be prepared outside of the press while a second tool performs the pressing process. The tools are changed automatically by means of pneumatic cylinders. Including all required sensors and pneumatic valves and extension of the control hardware and software for partially automated shuttle mode operation.
