Converting Material for Automotive Interior Trim
SCHWABE USA Model SR270 Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with Infeed / Outfeed Pinch Roll System
We recently built a SCHWABE USA Model SR270 Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press at the SCHWABE USA manufacturing plant in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA for a Top OEM supplier of Die Cut Parts to the automotive interior trim industry focused on non-metallic die-cut parts delivering solutions for acoustic, air/water sealing, and BSR applications, and our customer continues to be “fast and flexible and capable of producing 2 million parts per day or die-cut prototype parts with 24-48 hours”.
We are proud to supply the SCHWABE USA Hydraulic Beam Press Model SR270 to this Top OEM manufacturer which was the first in it’s field to achieve TS 16949 / ISO 14001 certification.
SCHWABE USA Press Construction
Central Guide Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with quad (4) 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 (5) moving parts in the Schwabe SR design; there is no linkages thereby resulting in less scheduled maintenance and easy serviceability.
Cutting Force – 270 U.S. Tons
Head & Bed Size – 48”D x 68”W Max. Material Width – 60″W
Cutting Stroke – 8”
Daylight Opening – 10” from head to bed without cutting surface.
Stroke Control – Linear transducer
Cutting Surface – Nylon cutting pad
Pad Shifter – Shifts the pad in a linear motion to extend the normal life of the cutting surface. Pneumatic Adjustable Die Rails – Mounted to the head
Hydraulic System – Freestanding hydraulic powered unit includes pump, hoses, valves, gauges, etc.
Operates at 3600 psi
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.
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.
Infeed / Outfeed Pinch Roll System
Infeed Pinch Roll Feed System with Conveyor Belt – Manually adjustable pinch roll able to accommodate various material thicknesses up to 5”.
Both rollers power driven by VFD complete with heavy duty steel frame construction conveyor system. Infeed conveyor approximately 6” beyond fixed guard.
Outfeed Pinch Roll Feed System with Parts Picking Conveyor – Manually adjustable pinch roll able to accommodate various material thicknesses up to 5”.
Both rollers power driven by VFD complete with heavy duty steel frame construction conveyor system. Length is approximately 110” and will roll away on locking casters with electrical interlock. Roll away parts picking conveyor to roll straight back approximately 70” from press to aid in tool change.
