The Press machine developed in the bronze age of human history. It used to be weapon processing equipment and has been evolved for thousands of years. Today, many manufacturers are using die spotting press to produce various molds and dies, which are mainly used in automotive, consumer electronics, and household appliances. The size of the die spotting presses depends on the size of the die to be spotted.


Size of Die Scales

If the manufacturer's product size varies greatly, then the required die spotting press size for accommodating the die will be different. Compared with the try-out press and ordinary mechanical or hydraulic press for production, the mechanical force of the die spotting press is much smaller because the main task of the die spotting presses is to check whether the upper and lower molds match.


Trial Pressing Is Important

In addition, since die spotting press is not responsible for the actual production, its mechanical differences are not limited to force, but also include many other specifications. For example, many die spotting presses are equipped with a 180-degree reverse casting design, which allows detailed inspection of the upper and lower molds during the process. The dies material can be metal, plastic, or other synthetic materials, and different material properties require different inspection and testing methods.


Test Spotting

The hydraulic die spotting press was developed to provide very mature die accuracy spotting capabilities. Some die spotting presses suppliers also provide an optional wax trail system to make it easier for machine operators to check the closing accuracy.

Manufacturers of die spotting presses can use high tension rods to achieve higher accuracy and to make the platen parallelism of the machine better when the molds are closed under high pressure. In addition, the modern die spotting presses usually equip with safety devices, such as pneumatic mechanical locks for the upper table, four-mold clamping cylinders for stability, anti-dropping devices with suspension type to ensure the safety of personnel and molds.


Protection Model

There are more protection mechanisms for machine operators and dies to improve production conditions, which in turn brings better product quality to manufacturers and their customers.


Design of Pressing Mechanism

The design of the die spotting press has distinctive characteristics, especially in the stopping and guiding positions, because the punches that cause one end to cut is necessary to damage the other side of the die part. Conversely, the guidance of molds is less acute. The columns on the injection machines are used to achieve these goals.

Even if the press is designed for both mold and die spotting, its modification and related settings will be different because it must be applied to mold spots. Experienced press operators will know how to tilt the casting and adapt the settings to the usage requirements.


Insight: Deep Drawing Press

Die spotting press and deep drawing press are often compared. In fact, die spotting is a frontier step of deep drawing. Hydraulic deep drawing press is one of the most commonly used hydraulic press in the industry today. Any manufacturer can use it to make various industrial items as well as items for daily use. In industrial applications, deep drawing presses are used to make furniture, sports facilities, consumer electronics, and household appliances. The size of the die determines the tonnage of the press is used. If the manufacturer's product size varies greatly, the scale of its hydraulic deep drawing press will be different.

Categorizations of deep drawing machines

Deep drawing can be divided into conventional and unconventional models. The main purpose of the unconventional deep drawing process is to expand the original formability limit of the workpiece. Some of the unconventional processes include the Aqua-drawing process, hydro-mechanical deep drawing, Hydro-forming process, etc. After die spot, the user will check all the pressing variables, and then set up their following deep drawing pressing steps for the massive production line.
