The Hydraulic Ironworker Machine: Steel Powerhouse

Posted on Dec 17, 2020

Hydraulic Ironworker Machine

Freestanding on the floor, hydraulic ironworker machines only need an electrical connection to get ready for operation. The hydraulic ironworker machine is perfect for punching, shearing, notching, bending, and other metal fabrication purposes–sometimes replacing the need for drill presses and bandsaws altogether.

The hydraulic ironworker machine is a class of machines that shear, cut, and punch holes in steel plates. It is one of the most useful machines in the steel fabrication industry. The hydraulic ironworker can shear flat sheets, round and square bars, as well as punch plates, angles, I-sections, and channels. Hydraulic ironworker machines come with standard tooling including repeatable backing tables in punching, shearing, and scoring stations, and with easily adjustable clamps on all five workstations to safely control operations. Comprehensive safety covers are fitted as standard at all workstations.

Freestanding on the floor, hydraulic ironworker machines only need an electrical connection to get ready for operation. The hydraulic ironworker machine is perfect for punching, shearing, notching, bending, and other metal fabrication purposes–sometimes replacing the need for drill presses and bandsaws altogether. The hydraulic ironworker has a multi-purpose machine made for efficiency. It is an easy win for shops looking to increase their productivity. Many hydraulic ironworker machines are well-engineered and built for high power, quality, and reliability. 

The hydraulic ironworkers can be unique powerhouses of production in the workshop for cutting the steel parts used like angle steel, H-beam, U-shape steel, right angle, or 45-degree steel. The hydraulic ironworker machines are ideal for machining and punching, shearing, notching, bending, and other metal fabrication functions. These ironworkers are a huge boost to productivity and can reduce downtime and increase profits, eliminate waste, and create sharp, and precise parts in steel.
 

Punching of Steel Sheets

A full range of universal punches and dies are available. Unique style enables high-angle iron punching and large channel punching. A large viewing window on the tilt-up stripper structure is useful for easy handling. A large two-piece measuring table with rulers and a stopwatch is the standard equipment. Quick change nut and connection sleeve provide the quick-change capability.
 

Cutting/ Shearing of Bars and Plates

Round and square bar shears have multiple holes for different sizes. Adjustable clamp works with round/ square bar, channel/beam cutting. The large strong cover helps reach maximum safety. Miter shear has the ability to cut at 45 ° both the upper and lower legs. This gives the operator the ability to make a corner of the picture frame to obtain perfect welds. Diamond-shaped blade for high-quality cuts with minimal material loss and deformation. Easily adjustable pressure device for the exact cutting of boards. Huge square plates with indexed part geometries. The special anti-deformation blade ensures a high-quality cut. The lower blade has four useful edges. There is a screw that allows the gap to be adjusted without the need for a washer.

Punching Details on Sheets and Bars

The unique design allows you to cut angles and flat bars. A protective cover with an electric lock and three measuring stops render the precise positioning. Notching functions of the machines and hydraulic features are perfect for cutting sheet metal, square, and much more. The cutting station also has an oversized table with material stops. This section of the machine can also be equipped with an optional prism cutter.
 

Universal Plate/ Bar Bending Features

All machine elements are of the highest quality in terms of safety and functionality. The main features of hydraulic ironworker machine can be the following:

● Solid and accurate steel frame
● Adjustable stroke controls with indicators on both cylinders
● Hydraulic system with overload protection
● Easy maintenance
● Emergency stop switch
● Large flat cutting table with a ruler guide
● 2 independent hydraulic cylinders

Advantages of Hydraulic Ironworker Machine

Due to the reduction in man-hours and effort required to cut or punch steel sections, hydraulic ironworkers play an important role in steel fabrication and manufacturing facilities across the globe. They can be re-fitted, flexible with various production capabilities, and can be operated by just a few people. The general advantages of such a machine are listed as follows.

● The hydraulic ironworker machine is fast and accurate and makes it easier to cut large amounts of metal in factories.
● hydraulic ironwork does not require much maintenance and is cost-effective.
● A hydraulic ironworker machine is usually compact and therefore takes up less space while exerting the same pressure as a mechanical ironworker machine.
● hydraulic joinery secures the metal with contractions during cutting, ensuring smooth cutting and even cutting at 90 degrees. There is a wide range of hydraulic ironworker machines on the market to suit all-metal sizes.
 

Hydraulic Ironworker Machine Applications

A hydraulic ironworker machine is the most trusted and versatile machine a person can have in their manufacturing facility, workshop, maintenance department, or vocational school. Hydraulic ironworker machines are designed for punching, shearing, bending, and notching soft steel plates, bars, and tubes. Many hydraulic ironworker machines are employed in many industries such as tower manufacturing and the construction industry.

A hydraulic ironworker machine is a modern system. High-strength carbon steel blades and dies of various shapes are used for metal processing. The machine itself is made of very heavy steel to withstand the enormous force generated during use. Steelworkers are judged by the force they can generate in tonnes; Ratings usually start at 20 tons and go up to 220 tons. Mechanical ironworkers are mostly used for cold winter production (down to -20 ° C) and are considered faster. Another reason for choosing a mechanical design is to cut large profiles (up to 300 mm and larger).
