Metal stamping and press transfer

Metal stamping and press transfer

Sheet metal is moved through a series of presses and formed into a panel. Slippery panels due to oil, narrow areas to grip and high speed in the press makes the selection of cups crucial. Vacuum tooling for handling the panel changes each time a new part shall be pressed. Tandem press-lines feature multiple presses with press-to-press transfer by robots or special feeders. The big benefit with a Tandem Press line is the high degree of flexibility. The ”crossbar” press has crossbar feeders which move in the transport direction on a longitudinal rail that is mounted to the frames of the press upright. This is a high-speed application where friction cups for oily surfaces are needed for maximum performance.




Advantages with Piab

  • Increased productivity and safety thanks to special designed friction cups for oily surfaces which also reduces the risk for sliding sheets.
  • The productivity is also increased thanks to vacuum pumps using the COAX® technology and optimizers to minimize the energy consumption.
  • Great grip will also be achieved thanks to a secure and fast grip thanks to high initial vacuum flow of Piab vacuum pumps.
  • Increased safety with special vacuum check valve.
  • Flexible tooling components for easy positioning of the suction cups.
  • Higher degree of process control, sensing vacuum at each suction cup.
  • Easy trouble-shooting.
