Die manufacturer adds high-tech press to maximize efficiency, decreasing lead time and costs for clients in need of short-run fabrication.
SCHILLER PARK, ILLINOIS – Manor Tool & Manufacturing Company, a leading metal stamping company in Illinois, has added a 33-ton Finn-Power C5 Express Turret Press to their extensive line of equipment. As a lower cost option for initial low-volume, development volume, or prototyping, the new press will offer customers the ability to develop parts before investing in hard tooling for large volume runs.
Manor's new Finn-Power C5 Express features an auto loader, robotic pick up sheets and loads, and remote programming, all designed to increase production time. Fully networked, the machine allows engineers to develop processes from drawings, using sophisticated NC Express Cam software that generates the G-code for tool paths that are sent to the machine for manufacturing.
The new press adds full networking capabilities, faster processes, lower noise levels, more energy efficiency, and a safer operation. The Finn-Power C5 Express features 20 main tool stations and three multi-tool stations, utilizing one station with 24 tools up to ½" in diameter, and two 6-tool stations with up to ¾" diameter. The result is 53 total tool stations, and a maximum punch diameter of 3.5".
Additional features include multiple tool-holder sizes that can be switched from station to station, the option for additional index stations, multiple shaping capabilities, multiple job runs from one setup, and an automatic built-in conveyor for fast part or scrap removal. The machine also offers fast loading and unloading with a smaller footprint.
Manor notes that the acquisition of the new press will allow for significantly faster part availability. When combined with the company's large catalog of tooling with varied diameters and its supplier relationships, Manor will be able to deliver parts to clients in as few as two days.
Manor Tool & Manufacturing Company began as a tool-and-die shop in 1959, and has grown to become a first-class metal stamping company, specializing in punching, bending, forming and deep draw stampings. Based in Schiller Park, Ill., Manor produces both low-volume needs in the prototype stage and high-volume needs that require progressive tooling.
