Double Straight Sided Press
MDE SERIESOur MDE Series double straight-sided hydraulic presses feature a double connecting rod and are used for a variety of applications such as metal forming, stamping, molding, forging, and punching. They work by applying pressure on a workpiece through a hydraulic cylinder, which generates force that is then transferred to the die or tool. The straight-sided design of the press provides a stable and uniform force distribution throughout the press stroke, allowing for precision and accuracy in the shaping of the workpiece. The hydraulic system provides high force capability and flexibility, allowing for a wide range of materials and workpiece sizes to be processed. These hydraulic presses are commonly used in manufacturing industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction, and appliance production. They are also used in metalworking shops and other industrial settings for various types of metal fabrication and processing applications.
OPEN SOURCE CONTROL SYSTEM
Get Parts Anywhere.
Our control systems are made with open source, readily available components. We use no custom-made OEM parts.
HIGH FEQUENCY QUENCHING
Improved Service Life.
We use a high frequency quenching on our slide guides which reaches over HRC 48. Rail grinding is above RA 0.4 and the average flatness is 0.03 mm/m2. The result is reduced wear, sustained precision and longer service life.
BRONZE WORM GEAR
Strength and Wear Resistance.
Bronze worm gears reduce the probability of seizure and greatly reduce the process of die adjustment. The bronze-copper alloy (ZQSN10-1) extend the service life when compared to cast iron worm gears.
We use a sintered TM-3 copper alloy ball seat as opposed to cast iron. The TM-3 copper alloy has a surface strength of 1000 kgf/C m2. This alloy reduces the probability of seizure and at the same time extends the service life of this part.
Less Wear and Tear.
The all bronze-copper alloy sleeves are made of Tin, Phosphorus Bronze ZQSN10-1 and are about 1.5 times stronger then just copper BC6. The result is reduced wear.
Stronger and Bigger.
Our crankshafts are made of high strength 42 CrMo alloy and are larger than most. They are forged, heat treated and inspected for flows. The result is that the strength is 1.3 times higher than that of 45 steel and breaking is reduced.
CHROMIUM PLATED THIMBLE
Hardened and Stronger.
Our thimbles are chromium plated with a surface between RA 0.4 and RA 0.8. They are then hardened to HRC 48. This provides an excellent oil seal to ensure seal life.
HARDENED GEAR SHAFT
Less Wear on Tooth Surfaces.
The gear shaft is made of high strength 42CrMo alloy and all tooth surfaces are treated with intermediate frequency which increases hardness. The advantage of this is less wear on tooth surfaces and higher meshing precision.
HIGH FREQUENCY QUENCHED GEAR DRIVE
Improved Service Life.
We use a high frequency quenching on our gear drives which reaches over HRC 48. Rail grinding is above RA 0.4 and the average flatness is 0.03 mm/m2. The result is reduced wear, sustained precision and longer service life.
SAFETY LIGHT CURTAINS
Worker Safety Should Not Be An Option For a Press.
We are very serious about worker safety. That is why all our presses include full size CAT4 safety light curtains as a standard feature. The light curtains work along with the other safety features to ensure worker safety at all times.
BIGGER OIL PIPING
More Oil, Less Wear.
We use 8 mm diameter copper lubrication pipes to ensure proper lubrication on all critical points. The larger and higher gauge pipes reduce the possibility of breaking and ensure a constant flow of oil.
FINITE ELEMENT ANALISIS (FEA)
Through SolidWorks finite element analysis (FEA) we optimize the press structure and refine the design for maximum performance.
HIGHEST RETURN ON
We Give You More Press For Your Money.
To be competitive today’s economy requires that manufactures run their operations more efficiently and cost effectively than ever before. We offer the highest ROI (return on investment) in the industry. MetalPress gives you high-quality products for a reasonable investment and with more features than any other company. Simply put, we give you the most bang for your buck!
We Can Remotely Troubleshoot Your Trim Press from Our Facility.
Our Trim Presses include a Remote Connectivity Unit which allows our press technicians to remotely check the performance of the press, make any needed changes to the program or HMI, or to troubleshoot it directly from our service center. The customer is only required to connect the unit to the Internet via an Ethernet cable. We handle the rest.
We Use Brand Name Components You Know, Already Use and Trust.
We use only the finest quality components that are open source, and readily available locally in your area, or from our online parts store. We do not use any impossible to find proprietary components.
Remotely Monitor Your Trim Press Performance From Any Device.
As an option, all our presses are available with Industry 4.0 remote performance monitoring units which feature a custom dashboard. You can not only monitor press performance, but you can be notified before an issue occurs. Included are condition based maintenance reminders and shift performance statistics. Minimize impact of emergencies and maximize press uptime, and productivity. Monitor what is going on with the trim press and your production efficiency from any device, anywhere in the world.
Flexible Range of Applications.
Available from 88 tons all the way up to 880 tons the MDE Series of servo hydraulic trim presses can handle any application.
