Congratulations to the WINNERS of Wards Auto 2020 Best Interiors vehicles made with SCHWABE USA Die Cutting Presses DIEVAC® System.

Wards Auto 2020 Best Interiors vehicles using SCHWABE USA Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with a Progressive Feed System using the DIEVAC® System by ODI.

How does the DIEVAC® System work with the SCHWABE USA Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press with a Progressive Feed System?

Up to 40cm (10″) of tri-laminate material is positioned on top of the steel rule die or Dieverse TM. Tooling. The hood then encloses the die and material within the carrier, the cutting matrix being mounted in the hood. A vacuum pump then expels the air from the system which draws the hood down and compresses the material to approximately 5cm (2″) in height.

The entire system is then incrementally fed through the SCHWABE USA Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press specially fitted to suit the DIEVAC® process. When the vacuum is turned off, the lay recovers to its original height and the hood is automatically lifted clear. The components are then removed and the cycle can be repeated with a new lay of material.
