Schwabe USA Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with Belt Feed System Model SR150

SCHWABE USA Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Die Cutting Press Construction

DSCF7132 (1)

Central Guide Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with two (2) cylinder hydraulic system; the cylinders also act as the actuating mechanism of the press, pushing down from a top structure vs. pulling down from a bottom structure.

The cylinders are mounted inboard on the press in order to create a matching deflection between the head and bed, rather than having the head and bed gap the way conventional four post presses tend to do.

The heavy duty, rigid, large diameter center guide is used to keep the head and bed parallel vs. a hydraulic balancing system or some type of linkage/toggle mechanism.

The Schwabe exclusive design eliminates the need for adjustment should the system be carrying an unbalanced load.

There are only five (3) moving parts in the Schwabe SR Press design; there is no linkages thereby resulting in less scheduled maintenance and easy serviceability.

Press and any other necessary accessories must be bolted or pinned to the floor to protect against “walking” out of alignment to the other process equipment. This is buyer’s responsibility.

Press and Hydraulic Power Unit to be painted Pantone 3015/ RAL 5017. The moving platen will be painted Safety Orange RAL 2009/Pantone 172. Any safety items will be painted Safety Yellow RAL 1021/Pantone 1235

Working Height – 36″

General Specifications

  • Country of Manufacture – USA

  • Cutting Force – 150 U.S. Tons

  • Head & Bed Size – 50”D x 64”W

  • Cutting Stroke – 8”

  • Daylight Opening – 13-11/16″ Due to Spacers being added

  • Cutting Surface – Nylon cutting belt

Controls are Allen Bradley PLC with touch screen operator interface

  • Capable of 250 die recipe storage.

  • Includes die memory for recall of feed length, sheet rows, etc., (accessed thru a touch screen).

  • Includes various production/maintenance reports (screens) menu driven as well as computerized diagnostics with Ethernet capability for telephone diagnostics/trouble-shooting.

Feed System

DSCF7132 (1)

  •  Direct drive belt using servo drive and motor.

  • The use of the servo will allow for precise timing between the cutting belt of the die cutter with the incoming and outgoing conveyors

  • Material Alignment Device – includes stop gate to help position material before going into press

  • Acceleration Conveyor – to help stage material from customer line before going onto cutting belt. Servo driven to assist with the timing between the conveyor and the cutting belt. 

DSCF7150

Additional Features of feed system:

Cutting Surface – Nylon cutting belt included

The cutting belt will extend passed the die loading rails approximately 54” to allow for the operator to pick directly from the cutting belt.

Safety Guarding – Meets or exceeds all OSHA machine safety requirements including specification 1910.217(f) as interpreted by Manufacturer.

-Head Safety Block – For working under the head of the press.
-E-Stop Safety Relays – These relays provide 3 primary functions:
-Detect faults on safety-related electrical control circuits (i.e. faults in sensors, wiring, contactors, etc.)
-Provides an ensured switching action.
-Provides a manual reset facility.
-Outfeed guarding
-Swing up guard (with interlocks) for convenient access to the cutting area. Guarding to be supported with heavy duty gas shocks. Outfeed guard to cantilever backwards past 180° in the up/down direction with pins to be added to prevent guarding from falling during die change
-Infeed/Outfeed Guarding: to be plexiglass (or similar material) and not mesh
-Infeed guard door will slide open to avoid interference with HPU

Bellows Protection – Reduces chance of premature failure of precision components due to abrasive environment. Protective
boots on the center guide and four (4) cylinders

Outfeed

Allen Bradley Compact Logix Controls

Panel Control – Location of the electrical panel to be on the left side of the press form the infeed. Allen Bradley CompactLogix controls which allows die recipe storage, assuming only rolled goods are ran, of 2,600-2,800 (approximately).

Upgraded electrical enclosure to help prevent debris from production material from entering the enclosure. Due to tighter seal of the enclosure, an air conditioning until will be installed on the until opposed to a standard exhaust fan.

Includes various production/maintenance reports (screens) menu driven as well as computerized diagnostics with Ethernet capability for telephone diagnostics/trouble-shooting.

“Spacer fabrics are extensively used in the production of three-dimensional materials by the technical textile sectors, which include automobile textiles such as car seat and dashboard covers; industrial textiles such as composites; medical textiles; sports textiles; and foundation garments.

Their breathability is high so that moisture can be released, thus reducing the possibility of skin maceration. Therefore, the level of comfort increases in comparison with other materials such as neoprene, foam, and laminate fabrics.”https://www.sciencedirect.com
