The new revolutionary TS180 press has been designed and developed for the production of aluminium and paper food containers, dishes and trays. These products are obtained by blanking and forming of aluminum or paper which has been unwound from a coil.
Servo press is characterized by maximum flexibility ,high production rates and short die changeover times. The slide motion curve of the press can be adapted to the forming process , the die and the automation.
The TS180 servo press is a "C"-frame press with an equivalent standard press 180-ton capacity. It has large side frames spaced out to allow the passage of wide aluminium or paper strip. It has the possibility to use two foils at the same time with a special coil. The large working bedplate of the press is equipped with two removable supports with adjustable position to facilitate changing the tools and adapting to the different dimensions of them. This permits the press to use standard tools as well as tools designed with air cylinders below the bottom plate.
The press uses two brushless motors to feed the aluminium or paper strip allowing accurate control of step and speed. The height of the feeding system is electronically adjustable to match the strip height of the tool currently in use on the press.
There are 24 electronic cams (solenoid valves) controlled by a PLC and 12 fixed air connections with pressure regulators, providing easy tool set-up. This large number of air outlets, located on both sides of the press, permits the use of multi-cavity tools.
The TS180 servo press is equipped with eight compressed air tanks and two vacuum outlets. The pneumatic control panel is easily accessible during operation of the press.
The press may be equipped with tools for wrinkled-wall, smooth-wall, or paper container production.
The advantages of the TS180 servo press includes:
Good accessibility and easy handling during tool loading and unloading operations.
Complete visibility while the press is operating.
The ability to run medium and large size single-cavity and multi-cavity tools.
The stroke of ram is automatically adjustable, and the height is automatically adjustable to permit use of tools of various shapes and sizes.
The big advantages of this servo press are:
Flexibility in the forming process;
Slide motion freely programmable;
Ability to optimize a variety of forming processes;
Production rates up to 90 Strokes/1';
Improved maintainability due to elimination of high maintenance components such flywheel and clutch;
The TS180 servo press complies with all "CE" marking requirements.
