Let’s dive in and talk about traditional and automatic presses. It is crucial to differentiate between the manual and automatic press to realise how Expert AMT adds value to your business. So, read on to discover the hidden possibilities that an automated press machine can give you. In manufacturing, a machine press uses high pressure to deform a workpiece by pressing with two dies opposite to each other.
This press exists in many forms depending on the shape of the workpiece. For example, the manufacturing industry uses extensively press brakes, punch press, shop press, and much more, to solve its daily problems. The only common factor is using high pressure for deformation. However, the design of the press machine itself makes it insufficient for today’s required speed as the demand increases.
Imagine a scenario where we can spot the inefficiencies that a traditional press will have and the advantages that press automation will provide your business with. Every press is made up of two heavy dies facing each other, and they are the essential parts of any press machine. The pressure they provide when colliding deforms the material into the expected shape needed to carry out the coming manufacturing stages.
Every facility must change the dies of its presses to produce the different shapes of the parts involved. However, given the circumstances of current businesses willing to produce more orders per day, such heavy dies cannot be replaced easily. So, what’s the problem at hand?
Imagine that during a press operation, the dies need to be changed every two hours. But, these 15,000-lb dies will take four hours to be replaced. Such operations unacceptably stall production. This is a problem that many businesses encounter, but we have pinpointed many limitations and turned them into growth opportunities.
At Expert AMT, we understand that the future belongs to those who can supply the market faster. We can make this happen for you. We can create an automated quick-die-change system that can drastically reduce the change time required. Instead of four hours of manual replacement, the system can do it in less than an hour.
Even better, it comes with a safety bonus since no humans are required for the risky task, just like all automated solutions that we have at hand. You only have to come to us to cut down unnecessary and wasted time.
