RETAIL SECURITY TAGS
C-FRAME PRESS WITH FORCE OVER DISTANCE MONITORING
Retail Security Tags
The customer, a world leader in supplying security systems and products to the retail industry required a press that would be easily integrated into their automated cells. Communicating with a Robotic pick and place unit, vision system, and a staging index unit, were criteria for the controls on this press.
A very large, specially designed 100ton C-frame press with design features including extended daylight, extended throat and extra stroke. The press had a deflection of .0002″ per inch of throat (press had 16″ of throat). The customer had a large precision die that had clearance of .001″ between the upper die shoe and the lower shoe. The press is also equipped with an oversized four-post guided tool mounting plate to accommodate the large tool that the customer runs in the press.
The hydraulic unit was designed with Neff’s standard 50 horsepower dual stage regenerative hydraulic circuit to achieve the cycle rate required. Neff’s press performed a 14″ total stroke, with 2″ of work in 2.9 seconds (higher cycle rates are available).
An Omron C200H PLC, Omron remote I/O, Heidenhain glass scale, and other critical components were in an oversized electrical enclosure.
Two certified Neff Press Technicians provided rigging support, start-up and integration services for this equipment. The press was designed to simplify the integration process as much as possible and the success of this project is proven with our South Florida customer’s recent purchase of their seventh press.
