AIDA-America, metal stamping press manufacturer in Dayton, OH, USA, booth D46027, will introduce and demonstrate its new DSF-C1(A) series direct-drive gap frame servo press, showcasing AIDA’s exclusive Allen-Bradley control, at FABTECH® Chicago 2019. Standard DSF-C1(A) Allen-Bradley control features include the following: a 12” color touch screen HMI mounted on a swing-arm, an Allen-Bradley servo motion controller on CompactLogixTM platform, Allen-Bradley GuardLogix® safety controller, 200 job recipe storage, job recipe download/upload capability to a flash drive, an integrated tonnage monitor (peak only), a step-feed (CNC handwheel) slide motion control for improved set-up and precise functionality, 8 PLS cams, 8 input die protection with PNP/NPN signals, display of actual and virtual crank angles on an electronic crank angle indicator, and ergonomically designed opti-touch run buttons to provide the highest level of safety while helping to reduce operator fatigue. Control options include AIDA’s DSF servo automation interface, up to 16 additional PLS cams, and up to 8 additional die protection inputs. AIDA’s exclusive Allen-Bradley controlled DSF-C1(A) series of gap frame servo presses integrate seamlessly with Allen-Bradley controlled auxiliary equipment, while also offering readily available components, service, and support in North America.
Additional AIDA DSF-C1(A) series highlights are higher pendulum speeds than AIDA’s previous generation gap frame servo presses, light curtains with guards, three reset type production counters with six-digit display, motor-driven die height adjustment, a capacitor-based Energy Conservation and Optimization (ECO) system that reduces peak energy draw, and a state-of-the-art Electronic Over Load Protection (EOLP) system that monitors applied torque through the complete stroke to prevent overloading. AIDA designed and built high torque, low speed servo motors, which are specifically engineered for high productivity and demanding stamping applications, power its new DSF-C1(A) series presses.
AIDA-America will exhibit a DSF-C1-800(A), 80-ton, gap frame, industry-leading servo stamping press in booth D46027 at FABTECH®
Chicago 2019. This press will be blanking parts with AIDA’s optimized servo silent blanking stroke motion profile, which can only be achieved on a servo press. The DSF-C1-800(A) demonstration will also highlight the versatility of AIDA servo presses and show how they can improve virtually any stamping operation. These improvements include increased productivity, improved part quality, extended die life, and reduced maintenance, as well as addressing many more important issues for those in the stamping industry. Please visit booth D46027 to experience first-hand why, with more than 20 years of servo press experience, AIDA continues to be the servo press technology industry leader.
