Neff Press designed and built three 30-ton hydraulic C-Frame bench presses. The presses required Canadian compliance CSA Z142-10 including safety rated controls and hydraulics with monitored load holding circuits. A custom manifold block was utilized to contain all of the hydraulic components and to provide easy accessibility.
The international safety rated control system incorporated a programmable safety relay and HMI for diagnostic and setup information. The safety features for these machines include light curtains, a pneumatically driven safety latch system and an interlocked die safety block. We also incorporated a flex spray lube system for lubrication of the parts. As with most automotive industry applications we were asked to decrease our lead time and Neff was able to meet that challenge.
