Flying cutoff press's servo drive adds flexibility for various operations
Airam Press Co. Ltd. has designed and engineered a pneumatic flying cutoff press that uses a servo drive for stamping, punching, cutting, and piercing materials such as steel and aluminum. It can be used as part of a stamping workcell, to anchor the front or back of a roll forming line, and for extrusion applications.
The press can move in and out of the material three times faster than similarly equipped hydraulic and mechanical presses, according to the company. Tooling doesn’t have to travel as far, which decreases the overall footprint.
With few moving parts and no recirculating lubrication, production uptime is 98 percent and maintenance is minimal.
