Secret to Die Casting Copper Revealed

Secret to Die Casting Copper Revealed...

 

The greatest challenge of the copper motor rotor project has not been to die cast copper, but to die cast it economically. A fundamental understanding of the failure of past trials – namely short die life – has been the focus of current research. It was decided in the early phases of the project that the steel traditionally used in dies to cast aluminum rotors needed to be replaced with a high-temperature material suitable for molten copper. Numerous candidate materials were tested.

UNLOADING arm E-uARM 4000

Unloading linear spoon

 

New E-uARM 4000 is a simple and economical system to unload the forged pieces when it is possible to eject the pieces from the upper die.

It is used instead of the air jet system that is noisy and not always reliable. When this unloading system is used the die lubrication is made in two stages; the bottom die is sprayed by a nozzles mounted on the tray arm during the unloading operation and the upper die is sprayed by a nozzels mounted on the feed arm during the loading operation.In this way there is no lost time due to the lubrication cycle.

The unloading tray is available in various sizes according to the size of the press, and suitable for all makes of press.

Thank you to a mono loading arm  the movement of the spoon in working area  it is easier and permits also an easy entry to the dies area for fast die change.

Flexibility prominent in Straightening | Coil feeding lines

Flexibility prominent in Straightening | Coil feeding lines | Automations | Hot forging | Cold forming | Scoop.it

FLEXIBILITY PROMINENT IN STRAIGHTENING

From thicker traditional materials to the newer breeds of thin, high-strength steels, technology improvements allow straightening equipment to tackle it all.

As metal stampers continue taking on jobs requiring differing types of materials, the equipment employed must be flexible enough to handle whatever comes its way. In today’s market, flexibility is critical as stampers are not sure what jobs they will need to process and want a broad capability within the stamping lines so they can bid a wide variety of applications. That holds for the stamping press or presses and all related equipment and tooling. Coil-handling equipment in general, and specifically straighteners, falls into that category.

FLEXIBILITY BUILT INTO EQUIPMENT
Customers are continually looking for ways to stretch capabilities of coilhandling equipment from bottom limits to top limits, flexibility has been built into straightening equipment to process a wider range of material.
A main driver of that search for flexibility is the emergence of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel, and stampers seeking to maximize straightener utilization understandably want to run a variety of material through it, whether thicker traditional alloys or the new wave of tough and thin grades. So just how much flexibility can straightening equipment provide, and what innovations have equipment makers introduced to achieve that flexibility ?

STRAIGHTENERS CAN ADAPT
Straightening may be the coil-handling task most influenced by material type. Complicating the issue is the fact that higher-strength steels require more force to work than mild grades of the same thickness. Though no one straightener can process every type and size of material, technology improvements have greatly increased the operating ranges of straighteners.

That said, stampers should shop for straighteners armed with expected material-thickness and tensilestrength limits. A common industry rule states that a straightener can process higher-strength steel at settings equal those for processing mild steel that is 50% thicker. But check with your coil-handling-equipment supplier first.

BETTER CONTROLS
Innovations to handle greater ranges of materials are many, according to Coe officials. Straighteners can be adjusted to achieve roll penetration in higher-strength material. On top of that, the ability to thread varying materials through the straightener requires specific settings, as does the ability to process those materials.

For example, the amount of work-roll penetration required to back bend material to an acceptable level of flatness depends on the combination of material thickness, material type, roll diameter and roll center-distance spacing.

Controls advances and automation allow precise settings based on such a combination to be determined, saved and repeated, bringing quicker job changeover and reducing the possibility of damaged equipment and costly scrap.

STRONGER, MORE POWERFUL
The use of back-up rolls also assists in a straightener’s ability to process a range of material widths and thicknesses. Back-up rolls, when placed across the width of a work roll, minimize stress and potential deflection of the work roll. This allows, for example, straightening of a narrow strip of material, where forces and stresses are concentrated at the center of a work roll, precisely the area farthest from the end journals and bearings that support the work roll.

Placement of back-up rolls strengthens that area and gives the straightener the capacity to efficiently straighten the narrower material.

Straighteners today need to have small-diameter work rolls, backed-up to prevent deflection, this allows thin and thick material to be processed within the same machine, and also allows for high-strength material to be processed.

The small rolls allow good shape correction on thin material while the back-up rolls allow the thicker material to be processed. In addition, a high-rise straightener head allows a variety of materials, including pre-painted material, to be processed without marking.

Such a design makes it very easy for an operator to clean straightener rolls between jobs and material selections.

Another improvement in recent years: More rigid construction and use of computer modeling in designing straighteners have yielded tougher equipment that can process the toughest material, and withstand increased horsepower.

All of these improvements make the case for another look at straighteners to help optimize your pressline capabilities.

Improve the performance of your forming - coil line ! | Automations | Hot forging | Cold forming | Scoop.it

When planning production lines, customers generally focus primarily on the forming press itself and often underestimate the importance of the entire material flow for output and quality.

 

Each single item of the production line must be carefully coordinated with each other – from the front-of-line area with coil line and feeders to the press itself and through to the end-of-line area with removal devices and stacking units.

 

Material properties, such as yield strength, tensile strength, possible coatings or questions concerning the desired output performance and setup times are not only relevant for the press.

 

Besides, FPM Group spa coil feeding lines are equipped with high-quality components and technical features which assure quality, performance, flexibility and reliability.

 

FPM Group coil feeding lines are already used by a wide variety of industries such as the automotive, household appliance and packaging industries. By extending our standard range to handle smaller coil strip widths, small and medium-sized businesses can now also benefit from the advantages of a low-cost system.

Forging flanges - steel mechanical eccentric presses for forging flanges

Forging flanges - steel mechanical eccentric presses for forging flanges | Automations | Hot forging | Cold forming | Scoop.it

Flanges were used in pipe, railway, chemical industry, mining and many other places. Flanges were divided into forging flanges and casting flanges. Forging flange has the better quality, lighter weight and better strength than casting flange. Today forging flanges is more common used than the casting flange.

 

As we know that there are many different flange standards in different countries. Cheron forging company may manufactures many standards of flanges, including: ASA/ANSI (USA), PN/DIN (European), BS10 (British/Australian), and JIS/KIS (Japanese/Korean).The following is some pictures of our forging flange.

 

If you are looking for a good supplier of mechanical presses for forging flange, please send the standard requirements or drawings to us.
