Custom designed and built for each application, automatic load/unload systems increase pressroom production while at the same time creating an efficient, operator safe work place. Automatic load/unload systems is the first step in a complete work cell that starts with raw materials at the input and finishes with a completed, ready-to-ship part at the output. The ability to custom design pre and post press machines and then integrate with automatic load/unload systems make it a great fit for pressroom automation applications.
The End Crop Stacking System (ECS) is an end cut operation that allows the stacker to catch the lamination as it is being cropped from the end of the die and accumulated on an escapement mandrel. The escapement allows a short stack of laminations to stage on this mandrel. A transfer system moves smaller stacks to an area where they are constructed into taller stacks, to the programmed number of laminations entered by operator.
The DES system is a parts handling system designed specifically for top die ejection stamping. Positioned and secured to the front of the press, the compact design provides the flexibility required to adjust to different drop zones on a press and may adapt to multiple presses.
The BBS system is designed to transfer parts from inside a press to stations outside the press for continued manual or automated processing. The unit is positioned to process parts below the press and present stacks from below floor line in front of the press. The unit is constructed with a heavy duty frame which provides increased payload capacity to process large parts. With the increased payload capacity, the system may also process tall stacks resulting in an increase in press speed. The innovative quick change tooling offered with this system effectively reduces setup time increasing efficiency and productivity.
The ABS system is designed to transfer parts from inside a press to stations outside the press for continued manual or automated processing. The innovative quick change tooling offered with this system effectively reduces setup time increasing efficiency and productivity. A rapid exit concept provides real time quality assurance to reduce costly scrap issues seen with traditional chute designs.
