Hydraulic 4 Post Trim Presses
MPTP SERIESOur hydraulic four post trim presses, also known as 4 column presses or four pillar presses, are available in different sizes and are available with a variety of options like custom bed sizes, additional stroke, additional daylight, additional side cores, and many other options to fit your specific requirements.
These are high-performance trim presses that provide a time saving and convenient method of quickly and easily adjusting die setup to maintain maximum productivity. The Safety PLC and HMI control system is state-of-the-art in flexibility and operator feedback. Having the ability to quickly set and save die recipes means fast turnaround times for die installation and die switching.
Transportation, maintenance and future refurbishing to extend the useful life of a press is something that is not usually considered by most when purchasing a trim press. Our presses are designed in a modular way so they can be quickly knocked down into 4 main sections which are easier to handle, move, work on and refurbish in the future. The four sections are the base, the ram assembly, the control panel, and the hydraulic power pack.
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!
Added Flexibility for Your Trim Dies.
All our trim presses include hydraulic center ejection as a standard feature. This gives to tremendous flexibility in the type of trim dies to can use in our trim press.
It's All About
Greater Control Means Greater Efficiency.
Our trim presses feature advance Safety PLC control with large color HMI screens with easy to read graphics - all at no extra charge. See all press functions and parameters on a clear visual layout, and easily change anything on the fly. Now that is real control.
No More Messing Around with Setting Up Limit Switches.
We use digital micropulse transducer sensors which provide precise ram positioning, infinite setup flexibility and greatly simplify and speed up die setup. The setup data is fed back to the control system and can be recalled as a “recipe” for future reuse.
Important for Worker Safety and Good Health.
Our standard touch buttons have to be pressed together or the press will not start the down cycle. This is another layer of worker safety. In addition, the buttons are designed to fit the shape of the hand and to help alleviate the effects of carpal tunnel syndrome and other nerve disorders common to repetitive operator interfaces.
Worker safety should not be an option when ordering a press.
We are very serious about worker safety. That is why all our trim 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. Worker safety is our highest priority, and it always will be.
Flexibility for Your Changing Production Needs.
All our trim presses have the built-in flexibility of having a drop through hole or a solid base platen using a removable plug plate. We understand each project is different and we give you the option to adapt the trim press to meet your current and future needs.
No Need for Centralized Cooling.
All our trim presses feature a built-in, full size, high quality, water cooled heat exchanger that will keep the press oil at an optimal level.
4 AIR BLAST VALVES
Keep Your Dies Clean Between Every Trim Cycle.
We include four air blast valves with a programmed timer built into the HMI screen.
TIE BAR LUBRICATION
No More Need to Remember to Lubricate the Tie Bars
Our standard automatic tie bar lubrication system will reduce the scoring on the tie bars and thus will extend the lifetime of the press and the press precision. The “set and forget” system simplifies maintenance and even warns the operator to refill the lubrication oil container.
All our trim presses include two core punches. More core punches can be added as required. The core punch sequence and timing is fully customizable using the HMI screen, and the simple step-by-step setup routine. The setup then becomes part of the overall die recipe that can recalled at any time.
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.
Increase Production by Adding A Robot
We include robot interface I/O's built right into the HMI screen with 3 different modes. Choose from manual mode operation having the worker operate the whole press, semi-automatic mode having the worker on the front removing trimmed castings and a robot on the back loading castings, or fully automatic mode with our automated part unloader on the front and a robot on the back. We can customize these modes to your specific requirements.
Automate Trimmed Parts Removal.
Our optional pneumatic or hydraulic parts unloader can fully automate the removal for trimmed castings. Increase production speed and accuracy.
Add Even More Worker Safety.
Add our optional pneumatic safety door for enhanced worker safety. The door has an electronic safety edge which stops the press if triggered.
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.
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 35 tons all the way up to 200 tons the MPTP Series of 4 post hydraulic trim presses can handle any application.
