What is an Automatic Power Press?

An automatic power press is a machine that is used to carve, mold, combine and press some sheet metal to the appropriate form. The automatic power press is a multifunctional sheet metal forming system designed to achieve the desired shape of components, which is used for devices in automotive, electrical, or electronic industries, etc. In the early days, the process of sheet metal forming was performed by manual forces. With the increased strength and precision, the automatic power press has made a revolution in the machine tool industry.

The Operating Principle of Power Press System

When it comes to reforming sheet metal by applying pressure to the workpieces, mechanical power press works. The bed, piston, clutch, flywheel and crankshaft are the primary components. The upper and lower dies are connected to the slide, and it is fed into the system after the workpiece is put on the bed before the procedure starts.

When the flywheel rotates, it helps generate the pressure produced by the upper and lower dies, which allows for further shaping the workpieces.


Applications of Automatic Power Press Controller

The automatic power press machine is a multifunctional machine used for sheet metal grinding, shaping and pressing in different industries. Let’s take a brief look at the various applications of a mechanical press.
 
In the manufacturing industry, the automatic power press is usually used to prepare the housing for devices. This device is part of every manufacturing facility for producing electronic and electrical equipment. In addition, the mechanical press is also one of the most important learning machines for any engineering student.


What are the Features of the Automatic Power Press Machine?


● The automation of operation

The multi-functionality of the mechanical press has provided us with a number of advantages listed below. Previously, the pressing and shaping operation was performed by hand. With the progress in the automation of power press, it results in enormous savings on the cost of labor expenditure. It is designed in such a way that the workpieces do not have to be repeatedly placed on the machine. For several uses, the automatic power press system is used for chopping, pressing, trimming, straightening, etc. When opposed to manual effort, the automatic power press machine is much simpler to run. The mechanical press is part of the division of heavy machinery, but when operating a mechanical press in a workshop or factory, it is very important to take note of those tips.
 

ž● Lightweight and compact design

Compared to the traditional left to right crank shaft configuration, the cross shaft design is lightweight, giving the frame more rigidity and anti-deflection. It would need less room in your workspace because of the compact size. This factor must also be understood in the age of expensive manufacturing facilities if you are preparing to set up the press shop.
 

● Hydraulic Overload Protection

The hydraulic overload protection prevents press overload and protects the valuable tools, jobs and press. Also, with just one reset button, you can restart the press. There is a shear plate protection in the traditional press, which is a brake that keeps the operation idle while the system is overloaded. You get less downtime, higher efficiency and reduced costs of upkeep here.
 

● Smart Technology Eases the Use

The HMI console, a simple to use and user-friendly touch screen electrical control panel, exhibits different alarms such as strike amount, counter, preset counter, alarm photocell, alarm overload, alarm lubrication and many more... With traditional rotary presses, you cannot picture this facility.
 
Compared to the traditional reel mechanical press, the above characteristics are the key benefits of the power press, and there are several other advantages. Initially, hydro pneumatic presses are only powered by compressed air and then a hydraulic power stroke is automatically actuated. By implementing a pneumatically powered high-speed stroke that reaches the workpiece with low force and integrating it with an automatically actuated hydraulic power stroke that engages when resistance is encountered, these presses incorporate the benefits of pneumatic and hydraulic presses.


The Multiple Uses of Automatic Power Press

The use of hydro pneumatic presses has many advantages. Compressed air is used by these presses as their primary source of power, and it helps in the implementation of piping structures and parts inexpensively and efficiently. This removes the need for costly hydraulic parts, such as hydraulic oil, absolutely.
 
The use of compressed air results in a quicker approach and retraction, leading to a faster reaction. Hydro pneumatic presses are lightweight and portable, so mounting them on a table is simple. In comparison, a hydraulic power pack does not need to be mounted, which will save you a lot of floor space. 
 
These computers are big energy savers. Compared to conventional hydraulic systems, they can save up to 50 percent in energy inputs over fully hydraulic and pneumatic systems, and can save more than 70 percent in terms of cost. It's pretty quick to use hydraulic presses. This is because of their basic materials and pneumatic parts for sealing.
 
For a number of uses, many people choose to use hydro pneumatic presses over hydraulic presses, such as bending, riveting, shaping, branding, clamping, punching, and straightening. And that's because the presses have several advantages over different types of equivalent hydraulic systems.
