Standard Industrial offers an
incredibly simple and easy to operate base machine. We
believe in starting with a good solid foundation and building from
there by adding features based on the customers needs. We
offer a wide variety of options and features that will provide
each customer with their particular level of sophistication, while
providing an un-complicated base machine as the power plant.
This simplicity drastically cuts down on your troubleshooting
efforts by being able to operate the base machine independent of
an add-on type of control.
All 4 types of
presses use the same base functions to operate. All machines
typically have the controls on the right hand side located on a
main control panel. Each machine will also come with a
two-hand control pedestal with (2) anti-tie down buttons to
actuate the machine. This pedestal also has an emergency
stop button and a "normal-inch" switch. This switch controls
the ram and allows it to return to the upper limit in "normal"
mode when the buttons are released or in "inch" mode the ram stays
in the exact position you want when the buttons are
(3) limits are controlled through a very simple limit switch
assembly that controls the upper limit (top of stroke), the speed
change point and the lower limit (bottom of stroke). In
order to develop full tonnage and provide precision results it is
necessary to set the speed change point or "pressing" speed limit
so the ram slows down before it strikes the material. More
sophisticated programmable features can be added to control all
the base functions of the press, but you will always have this
simple, precision mechanical back-up in case of computer
failure. This assembly is particularly favorable in heavy
forming and punching applications when the machine is under an
atypical "shock" condition such as heavy punching and bottoming.
control panel includes an on-off switch for the main motor, and a
timer (for duration) for the decompression system which is
necessary during bottoming applications. All presses also
come standard with a counterbalance valve that allows you to punch
or blank to up to 2/3 of the machines overall tonnage for
the model DC, DCSS and AM and ½ of the machines overall tonnage
for the model AP. All presses come standard with a hydraulic
pressure tonnage control to allow you to vary your pressure.
Each style of press comes standard with many features as well as a
wide variety of optional features.
