Schwabe Model SR115 Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press With Cutting on Belt Clamp Feed System
Customer Requirement and SCHWABE USA Solution
A recent client required an efficient manufacturing process to cut and shape a Non Woven Material to be used as Insulation in a new large car battery innovation, the material is a low bio persistent fiber and supplied as roll goods.
Schwabe USA recommended die cutting with a steel rule on a SCHWABE Model 115 Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press on a continous nylon conveyor with a clamp feed system, from dual unwind system custom roll stand by DoubleE with brake system.
Cutting Force – 115 U.S. Tons
Cutting Platen Size – 66”D x 80”W
Cutting Stroke – 8”
Cutting Speed – 10 to12 Strokes per Minute with 63” feed
Daylight Opening – 9”, not including cutting surface.
Stroke Control – Linear transducer
Cutting Surface – Nylon cutting belt.
Die Mounting – Head mounted die with fixed position die rails
Hydraulic System – Freestanding hydraulic powered unit includes pump, hoses, valves, gauges, etc.
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.
The continuous Nylon Belt Conveyor traveling through press, is utilized as a material carrier and cutting surface, transported by a rear-mounted motor combined with a clamp feed unit. Pneumatic Clamp Feed mounted on rear of press set to operate automatically in conjunction with cutting cycle.
Clamp Feed complete with one (1) movable pneumatically actuated clamp bar with linear bearing guide (for a maximum feeding distance of approximately 63” roll material in one movement); one (1) pneumatically actuated fixed clamp bar with controls, and both clamps equipped with stop mechanism to control closing position so that material is not crushed.
Out feed belt length is approximately 40″ and is completely guarded. The guarding is made of aluminum frame with 1’ mesh guarding, which allows the operator a clear vision of the cutting area.
