High - rigidity double construction frame
The ARIES series utilizes a double construction frame which combines a high-rigidity main frame with a high-rigidity turret tool holder. Since the striker which punches a tool is installed to the main frame and the tool is held at right angles to the workpiece at all times,the press load does not affect the tool. The ARIES series can thus sustain high-precision working for a long period and ensures a long tool life.
New dead zone detection mechanism
The ARIES series is designed to allow the clamps to pass through between the upper and lower turrets, in order to minimize the portion that can not be punched (deadzone). The clamps, however, may be punched if punching is done when the clamps come under the punch. To ensure that the work clamps are not punched, the override detection device monitors the positions, and if the clamps move intoacritical zone,the machine will automatically stop. In addition, the ARIES series features a mechanism to detect the dead zone for each individual tool size. If the clamps are located under the punch, the sensor automatically detects it, thereby completely eliminating the possible damage to the tool and clamps as the tool will never punch the clamps even if the override button is pressed. Once the override is turned to the "OFF" position, it is not required to ascertain the override from the first work sheet.
Simple tooling replacement
The use of standard 'tool sets' minimises setting time and eliminates the need for tool alignment. Processing can be restarted immediately after tool replacement.
ARIES-245 II - Low noise cam drive mechanism
The ARIES-245II adopts a newly developed low-noise type double cam mechanism for its driving system. This mechanism is designed for a production cycle that provides a slow momentary speed when a workpiece is punched in order to reduce the cause of noise and then resumes the speed again after punching. This system in combination with the above frame construction design has successfully helped decrease the noise and vibration as much as 20%(comparison using our own machines) without any reduction in productivity. This is the first machine of this type among mechanical systems. The low-noise machine has brought about a great improvement in the factory environment.
Hydraulic clutch & brake
The noise levels of the ARIES series have been minimized by utilizing a hydraulic clutch. The hydraulic unit has a low power consumption and is virtually maintenance free.
Striker and shear plate
The punching operation is performed by a striker attached to the bottom of the ram.
Should the 20 ton press capacity be exceeded, the press mechanism is protected by the failure of a shear plate.
Extended processing range can be achieved with NC controlled work clamp repositioning.
The work holders firmly secure the worksheet while clamps reposition ensuring processing accuracy.
