Press Transfer System
The small cross sectional size of the FLEX 1000 In-Press Transfer System is advantageous because it allows our customers to run the rails into exceptionally tight areas, like the heels of the die. This design also permits earlier entry and exit into the die when the window is opening or closing, giving additional die timing windows to work in and the capability of running at faster speeds. The FLEX 1000 is capable of transferring up to 300 pounds of parts and tooling, and features a transfer stroke of 0–36”. The FLEX 1000 Transfer System has eight standard die stations, but may be equipped with more in certain applications.
The FLEX 1000’s overhead mount design allows easy access to the dies. The Bolster is left open for scrap removal and the windows of the press are clear for part feeding equipment. The transfer rails are supported along the length of the rail rather than the ends, giving the FLEX more rigidity and less deflection than our competitors. As with all FLEX Transfer Systems, jog capability, both forward and reverse, are independent of press actuation allowing for cycling without the risk of die interference.
