Hyson Products, a business of Barnes Group Inc., has released its modular Di-Dro Advanced forming system. This hydraulic pressure system enables metal formers to use high force in areas where space is limited. Applicable in both upper and lower operations, its low-contact and delayed-return forces help improve part quality and increase the life of the press, the company states.
The modular system is retrofittable in nearly any system with up to six corrosion-resistant cylinders in individual bases hosed to a control center. Four cylinder models provide contact forces from 1,780 to 125,440 N and stroke lengths from 0.51 to 8.86 in.
