Throw Away the Shims!
Hydraulico’s patented Electronic Shimming PlateTM offers extreme blankhold control and short start-up time in monoblock deep drawing. With deep drawing, material flow changes significantly during drawing, often causing problems with wrinkles and cracks.
Electronic ShimmingTM reduces scrap rates, facilitates production control, and allows for quick and uncomplicated tool changing.
The Electronic ShimmingTM system developed by Hydraulico has three components:
- The Electronic Shimming Unit which is a complete electronic and hydraulic system,
- A control panel and
- The Electronic Shimming Plate
The shimming plate holds individual pockets or zones, each pressurized by hydraulic oil and each controlled individually. The control panel allows users to set up pressure zones on the plate, modify pressure during a part of the press cycle and save the settings for future recall.
Fits into any Hydraulic Press
The Electronic ShimmingTM System can be fitted into any hydraulic press. If desired, Hydraulico can build the plate directly into a new die – a very cost-efficient solution.
We offer a range of shimming plates – single bowl, double bowl, 1 1/2 bowl and 2 1/2 bowl models, but many other types are possible.
