This unique machine can function similar to a YODER by using a leaf spring setup to "throw the die", causing a dead blow hammering effect. This mode would be used for aggressive shrinking and planishing, or by disconnecting the leaf spring and making the top lever a "rigid link", the machine can function similar to a PULLMAX. In this mode, there is no "give" between the die heads. Used for short stroke shaping, flanging.
Stroke lengths can be adjusted "on the fly" without changing the final stroke position of the die. The position of the stroke will remain the same no matter what the stroke is set to. This is accomplished by the stroke toggle mechanism. By changing the pivot point of one of the links, the stroke can be varied & can be adjusted in any mode while running. Stroke range is from .175" up to .550"
An eccentric adjuster is used to adjust the upper stroke mechanism up or down. This would be used to get the correct distance between tools as well as setting the down force. Can be adjusted in any mode while running.
The motor for controlling the system has the ability to vary the speed via foot potentiometer and the maximum speed limit can also be set. The foot control allows the user to "feather" the beats. Currently the machine will produce 1500 beats per minute, with infinite adjustability down to 0 bpm by means of the potentiometer foot pedal.
The DC servo option has a very definite control as the commands to the motor are instantaneous. In the servo mode the machine can be set up to deliver a single hit or blow and return to the upper most position. This is perfect for slow operation requiring lots of power at slow speeds.
Note: Machine does include English wheel option with an 8 inch top roll, and 4 two inch bottom rolls with different profiles.
