Die Spotting

Die spotting presses are special spotting machines that can do the spotting and inspection process for the dies and molds before the real manufacturing is on the way. This is more likely to be a try-out machine that is used for manufacturing under small mold spotting test tasks.

Spotting Presses: Not for Massive Manufacturing Frame

Die spotting presses machines are not responsible for the real production of goods through the tested molds and dies, the mechanical differences are not only confined to the forces but also to many other specifications such as molds, dies, pressing conditions, etc. For instance, many die spotting presses machines are equipped with invert cast design, which is mostly 180 degrees for the die spotting presses that enable detailed inspection in the die spotting processes.

Whether they die or mold materials are metal, plastics, or other synthetic materials, different variables of die spotting require different kinds of methods of checking. Hence, the development for trial die spotting press machines aims to offer the completely full-fledged capability for die and mold accuracy spotting. Some die spotting press suppliers also offer an optional wax trail system for users to inspect closing accuracy in order to meet the operators’ requirements. In sum, deep drawing presses are highly effective for the automotive industry as well as the household appliance sectors, together with die spotting presses machines, the functionality of deep drawings is fully-fledged to perform on the machines.

Die Spotting Process before Deep Drawing 

Before deep drawing processes, the die spotting process is a critical manufacturing pre-step in the working frames of die spotting machines. As one of the most commonly used press machines in the industry die spotting presses are used by many manufacturers in the production of a variety of molds and die items that are mostly applied to automotive, consumer electronics, and other manufacturing frameworks. The size of the die spotting presses is determined depending on the corresponding sizes of dies or molds that are to be spotted.

Therefore, generally speaking, if machine manufacturers do require an item whose size is largely different from their ordinary products, the scale of their die spotting machines would be different. Compared with other press machines such as try out press and ordinary production press, the mechanical force of a die spotting press would be much lesser because the primary task of a die spotting machine is to inspect if the contact points and surfaces between the lower and upper mold and die parts are appropriate or not.

More General View Points: Forming

Although die spotting is not a production process, it does belong to the production process of the metal forming process. The forming machine is one of the most commonly used forming machines in the industry. It is used by many manufacturers in the production of a variety of industrial objects as well as items used on daily basis. Regarding the industrial applications, many are applied to furniture, sports, consumer electronics, and household appliances. The size of the die determines the corresponding sizes of the press machines to be used.

To be precise, forming units such as hydraulic press have been classified into several categories, such as hydraulic deep drawing press, hydraulic try-out press, just to name a few. If compared with other press machines such as try-out press and ordinary production press, the mechanical force of hydraulic press machines would be much stronger because the primary task of this kind of machine is to make pressing on the workpieces no matter of its material essences.

Moreover, since conventional press machines are responsible for the real and massive production of products, the mechanical strength is not only confined to the forces, but also to many other specifications. After the try-out and spotting, it is the real working time. Most of the pressing machines now are still of hydraulic mechanism, and they are equipped with several features.

Hydraulic forming presses are commonly used in the metalworking sectors for many kinds of forming operations, such as clinching, forging, molding, punching, blanking, deep drawing, and other metal forming operations onto a wide variety of metal materials and mechanical components as workpieces. With the press machines, the cycle time of the production procedure could be shortened on a large scale together with the tooling advancement. In the meantime, within an acceptable tolerance value regarding the output, the tooling enhancement is the key to improved processes and stamping mechanisms.
