Forming machines and presses
Operating authorities of diverse type of forming machines, presses (such as hydraulic, mechanical and servo presses) have the same challenges in various industries:
- improve productivity (reduce press cycle time)
- have better sliding motion control (position, speed and dwell)
- lower operating costs
- improve manufacturing accuracy and press cycle repeatability.
Heavy-duty hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders of these presses play key roles in the productivity, motion control and in manufacturing accuracy. That is why high-performance sealing solutions are required in all critical cylinder applications, which are able to withstand such operating condition and meet requirements.
Other technical challenge is the physical condition of the aging press population: wear, tear, corrosion, excessive side load and radial play of the cylinder component. Accelerated wear out, extrusion, high friction, short service life and low performance are typical seal related issues, endangering the reliability and productivity of the equipment.
SealFluid and FP offer advanced sealing solutions in combination with industry expertise for all kind of forming machines and press application, providing reliability, safety and increased productivity, reduced downtime for massive forming machines.
