Top 5 Hydraulic Press Machines in factories
In so many factories, some machines catch your eyes immediately when you enter the production hall. After some time you realize that that those machines are the heart of the production and they shall never stop or have any problems that will effect the production and delivery of the parts. If there is a bending operation in a factory, then those most cricitical machines usually are hydraulic machines. Here we will talk about which 5 hydraulic machines are the most essential ones for factories. As you know hydraulic machines operate with the help of the hydraulic powder generated from a compressed hydraulic oil. The generator of this pressure is a hydraulic pump that takes the hydraulic oil from a tank and pumps it into the channels, pipes, hoses and cylinders under high pressure and with the help of this hydraulic pressure, we carry out some operations with our machines
No 1 of all the hydraulic press machines comes the press brake that operates with 2 hydraulic cylinders. Press brakes are bending machines that operate vertically and have some different working heights and lengths according to your operation needs. Press brakes have some various types as mechanical controlled press brakes and CNC press brakes (There are also some NC press brakes). The CNC and NC press brakes are mostly available in the market. Here the press brake operator controls the machine by entering some numerical values like the working height, the steps and the movement values of the jaws. Press brakes bend the sheet metal with the dies placed on the jaws and those dies can change upon the form to be given to the part. Dies are usually manufactured by a more hardened material than the sheet metal so that it will change the form of the sheet metal without letting change its own shape. An operator or a company owner may get interested in how to use a press brake machine so that he/she will understand what kind of capabilities the operator or the company itself needs to operate the machine. Novadays there are so many videos on the internet explaining this easily No 2 of the top 5 hydraulic press machines is the hydraulic press, that is used to form sheet metal into a sink or vase shape objects. The hydraulic presses operate again with 1 or 2 hydraulic cylinders that are moved with hydraulic oil under pressure. There is usually one main cylinder on the top and sometimes one auxillary cylinder in the bottom. the main hydraulic cylinder on the top carries out the main bending operation while the smaller on on the bottom is usually used for drawing presses. Hydraulic presses can be as small as 20 tonnes and can go upto 5000-6000 T for some big bending operations in one pressing cycle.
No 3 of the top 5 hydraulic press machines is the horizontal press. Horizontal press is a small version of a press brake which operates horizontally and in shorter cycle periods. Horizontal presses are small, compaque, easy to use and economical hydraulic press machines that are used to bend some small parts. Their capabilities can be as low as 20 tonnes and go upto 100 tonnes. Horizontal press are operated with an NC controller and a PLC operated electrical board. Horizontal press bend the parts with a set of dies which are manufactured according to the part to be manufactured. Horizontal presses are manufactured with a rigid welded frame and inside an electrical control board and on the press there is the hydraulic cylinder with small working stroke and dies.
No 4 of the hydraulic press machines is the pipe bending machines. Pipe bending machine is a similar bending machine to the horizontal press which acts the same way. Pipe bending machines can differ into two, one is the 2D bending machine and the other is 3D bending machine. The EMS Metalworking machinery bending machines operate without mandrell and can bend steel pipes from the diameter 1/2 inch upto 5 inch. No 5 and the last machine of the top 5 hydraulic machines in factories is the profile bending machine. Profile bending machine is used to bend profiles with the help of 3 rollers whose distance between them can be regulated thus the the diameter of the profile can be adjusted easily. Profile bending machines can be opreated with a NC or and CNC.
