Incremental Die Cutting Fabric for Automotive Interior Trim

SCHWABE USA Manufactured Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press Model SR350

Edited Logo

Dual Sided Cutting Press

Manual Incremental Feed System

With lateral transfer capability for up to 18’ long die boards.

Two (2) clip-on trolley units for sequencing die boards through press, complete with anti-tie down device for stroke activation.

The manual push/ pull trolley unit, with extended handles for activating the press outside of guards, is clipped onto die boards and incorporates a guide mechanism for the die boards.

The operator controls the feed distance manually. For operator convenience, there is also a wire festooning mechanism with wire support trolleys so the control cable moves in a neat controlled manner as the die board is cycled through the press.

Schwabe Model SR350 Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press With Dual Sided Manual Progressive Feed System

Press Construction

SCHWABE PressCentral Guide Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with (4) cylinder hydraulicsystem; 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.
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 working height 36” – standard
