The low deflection 250-ton automatic hydraulic vacuum press is fitted with 20” x 20” solid steel platens with heating elements divided into multiple zones for enhanced temperature uniformity.
Piqua, Ohio (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
TMP Inc., a division of French, introduces a new heavy-duty slab side automatic hydraulic vacuum press for cold pot transfer molding parts for the automotive industry. The low deflection 250-ton press is fitted with 20” x 20” solid steel platens with heating elements divided into multiple zones for enhanced temperature uniformity. In addition, the platens are totally insulated to restrict heat transfer into press components. This hydraulic press can be customized with different size specifications and additional press features to consistently mold quality parts for a variety of applications.
A self-contained prefill-type hydraulic system is totally enclosed and driven by an energy efficient motor, which allows fast close, opening and accurate, repeatable tonnage control. The press operator can manage overall press operation, including temperature, pressure, times, bumps and counts with Allen Bradley base controls.
The press vacuum system features doors mounted on the front and backside of the press that completely seal off the daylight opening and allow rapid vacuum to be drawn on the press’ total working area. The front door is opened and closed via a double acting cylinder and is sequenced with the press operating cycle. The rear door can be opened manually for maintenance purposes.
To increase production time, the press is designed with mold automation. After the cycle time is complete, a mold section is shuttled forward out of the press onto a knock out table to allow the operator to easily remove parts, inspect the mold and rapidly shuttle in the mold to repeat the cycle.
