Servo pick feed, servo part eject, servo adjust shut height
, and side-trim tool loading.
The characteristics of AHSS are different, so there needs to be consideration of things including the hold-down pressure, bushing pressure, and shut height
. More overbend is likely to be designed in the die.
The DIRECT-AIRE Mini is offered standard with an EZ-Dial pressure regulator, adjustable dwell timer, adjustable shut height
and 2-hand anti-tie down Actuator.
The molding press for the new system is a 4000-ton vertical compression press that boasts 124 inches of daylight, a 112-inch stroke, and a minimum shut height
of 12 inches.
Standardizing the shut height
for all dies used in a given press is desirable because the shut height
remains constant, and because it can be done with the machine running.
Parameters to set include press shut height
, counterbalance pressure, die-cushion pressure, hydraulic overload, tonnage monitoring, signature analysis and die sensing.
But flat panels and molds with small shut height
(thickness) must be farther away from head tooling due to parison arching angles back to the head tooling.
Nonetheless, the new machine is reportedly compact and has a shut height
of 10 to 14 in, It uses a vertical injection unit and has fewer parts, resulting in less maintenance.
I'll take shut height
, front-to-back measurements, and strokes per minutes.
