Power Die Change Compacting Powdered Metal Press Details
Hybrid Press Design
The CINCINNATI Power Die Change Compacting Press combines the speed and accuracy of a mechanical press with the controllability of a hydraulic press. This unique combination is the solution for lean manufacturing pressing requirements of complex precision PM parts.
Multi-Level Part Capability
Complex PM parts with up to 8 levels can be produced on a CINCINNATI Power Die Change Compacting press using the following independent tooling levels:
- Outer Upper Punch
- Middle Platen Punch
- Inner Upper Punch
- Shelf or Straight Through die
- Outer Lower Punch
- Middle Lower PunchInner Lower Punch
- Through, Stepped or Blind Core Rod
Unique "Tri-Press Stops"
Outer and Middle Lower Punches are supported on "Tri-Press Stops" to facilitate production of complex parts that generate off-center loading. The combination of three press stops per platen and robust guiding ensure production of precise parts using tight tolerance tooling.
CINCINNATI Compact CNC Computer Control Center
Operator-oriented fingertip programming control is provided to simplify press set-up and operation. This powerful control not only provides basic control of the press, but also performs extensive press and process monitoring. With available options, it can make on-the-fly process changes to reduce part-to-part variability within a production run.
CNC Platen Motion Control
Critical Platen motions are established by generation of a Desired Motion Trace using basic part information. The color display indicates the programmed and actual traces of each lower tooling member. This speeds part development and facilitates part problem identification.
Power Operated Die Set Transfer System
Die Sets are exchanged in a matter of minutes using the power operated die set transfer system. Each die set maintains full time utility connections to speed exchange and provide a means to simulate press motion during tooling set-up. A power-operated hoist is provided to assist tooling installation/removal and is large enough to use for major die set repairs if necessary. A moving floor system increases operator access during tool changes and keeps unwanted debris out of the press pit.
