Columbus, OH—June 30, 2008
Phoenix Hydraulic Presses, Inc. announces production of two 30 Ton, 2-Column multiple press units for a 1st tier automotive supplier.
Each unit, or cell, includes four separate 30 ton presses individually driven by a single power unit. Each of the four presses feature 13” x 14” heated platens with insulation on the bottom and side, capable of reaching working temperatures up to 700 degrees. The cells were designed to build pressure on one press while allowing movement of the next press platen for improved cycle times. Both cells will be completely automated at the manufacturing facility.
The presses are controlled by an Allen Bradley 505 programmable controller with an Allen Bradly Panel View 1000 operator interface to control machine functions.
The 150 gallon hydraulic reservoir is floor mounted and has spin on filters.
Both cells will be used in bonding applications, primarily bonding a paper material to a metallic ring.
Phoenix’s presses can be designed in a variety of tonnages and engineered to meet custom specifications.
