Hydraulic Press

Hydraulic presses are the most commonly used press machines in the industry that uses specific hydraulic oils as the operation medium and the hydraulic pumps work as the power source with the force of the pump, so the hydraulic oil goes into the piston via the hydraulic pipelines, and finally there are several sets of mutually matched seals in the piston unit.

In the metal forming industry, there are many types of press machines. The most popular type is the hydraulic presses, due to the high reliability of the hydraulic forces and hydraulic torques. Since hydraulic presses are the most traditional version of presses, they are widely applied in the industry, and after the hydraulic press machines, there are the mechanical presses. 

Cycle Time Reduction

Aside from the hydraulic press, there is another popular forming machine in the metal forming industry that is widely applied in the working cycle that requires fast cycle time. The things are the mechanical presses, and servo presses. They are not with hydraulic forces. Rather, they are press machines driven by mechanical motors which are widely applied as well as the hydraulic presses and each of them represents different mechanical advantages that are advanced than the existing turnkey solutions.

Besides the hydraulic forces, now as the technology of both servo motors and hydraulic cylinders are quite well developed, both servo presses and hydraulic presses are commonly used in the metalworking sectors for many kinds of precision forming operations, such as clinching, die pressing, molding, punching, blanking, deep drawing, and still many other metal forming operations onto a wide variety of different alloy materials with complicated chemical and metallic features.

The proper way to deal with them may be servo, or may not, depending on the working situation. However, compared with the hydraulic press machines, the cycle time of the mechanical presses in regard to the production procedure could be shortened in a significant scale. 

Hydraulic Presses and Accuracy Level

Within an acceptable tolerance values regarding the output, mechanical press machines are able to achieve much high standards that cannot be done easily by ordinary presses due to the servo features. Compared with traditional metal cutting processing that always requires a lot of machining time in cutting and profiling, the procedure of metal press based forming process offers faster shaping process that makes massive production much feasible and is able to be further studied and developed in the phase of speed.

CNC hydraulic presses are the popular models in the market now even though their competitor the mechanical presses are also hot in the manufacturing sites. Hydraulic presses are less expensive compared to the mechanical presses, and the high precision rates and the easy to control experiences still move the selling of this type of press units to a new top level in the recent years. They are much more popular in the common level manufacturing sites for the production of advanced automotive components and parts and other stuffs, since they can generate many valuable heavy duty outcomes for their owners within an adjustable automatic setting by the CNC system.

Hydraulic presses are mostly used for mass production model, rendering work pieces in a targeted shape within a short period of time while making a large quantity of items. Currently, the trend of small amount but largely diversified production orders are the leading trend in the world manufacturing industry, so that the issue of a quicker pressing die changes mechanism for achieving agile manufacturing becomes very critical, and the servo motors becomes important in this circumstance. 

Similarities within Hydraulic Presses Models

Since all kinds of manufacturers may use the similar hydraulic presses model, so that in the global market, it is important and critical for manufacturers across all kinds of industries in the global market to be in touch with the same hydraulic specification with little custom changes and modifications.

Business owners in the automotive and electrical sectors are those who adapt to this trend well among many other sectors because with the help of computer assistance such as CNC controller and PLC controller rather than the manual designs that only benefit the experienced operators but not all the workers, now all the trained junior workers can make precision pressing by setting off the numbers unto the control panel and have the actions done by the servo fashions.
