8.18360 Die Changing Consoles, electrically Driven


The push-chain console, designed based on standard die change consoles, is easy and space-saving to install and suitable for retrofitting and new installations. 
Depending on the customer’s individual requirements, different automation levels can be realised with integration into the press control.



The main components of the die changing console are the manually movable carrying console and an electric push-chain drive. The die changing station with special push-chain drive makes the handling of dies easier and ensures effort and time-saving change of dies with a maximum weight of 50 tons in places difficult to access (higher loads on request). Roller and ball bars in the T-slots of the press bed allow easy handling when moving the dies. The carrying console is also equipped with a hydraulic lifting column with a foot lever for easy docking into the hooks. Steering rollers allow easy transport of the complete system from one installation to the next. Tandem die changes are also possible to optimise set-up times.
