Press release date: January 17, 2013
Covington, Ohio – Airam Press Co. Ltd., has designed and engineered a pneumatic flying cut-off press to use a servo drive that gives it the flexibility to perform stamping and roll forming operations as well as extrusion applications. Customers using the new flying cut-off, servo-drive combination can stamp, punch, cut or pierce a variety of materials including steel, aluminum, plastic, cardboard, and rubber. With a servo drive, line speed can be accelerated which increases production. The servo-driven flying cut-off press can be used as part of a stamping work cell or anchor the front or back of a roll forming line.
“Fabricators continue to look for alternative ways to do more with less,” says Matt Barkman, sales manager for AIRAM. “Customers are primarily concerned with the number of quality parts they can produce in a specified period of time. The servo-driven flying cut-off can move in and out of the material three times faster when compared to similarly-equipped hydraulic and mechanical presses. Tooling doesn’t have to travel as far which decreases the overall footprint saving valuable space.”
The Airam press is an easy-to-install, low-cost alternative with a production uptime of 98 percent. Maintenance is minimal. With fewer moving parts and no recirculating lubrication, the only components requiring grease are the guideposts.
