Oil filter manufacturing with Punch Transfer Press
A customer of ours has ordered a new press for his company, which is dealing with production of oil filters. The capacity for the oil filter production was high and he had some troubles using his old press to draw the metal cases of the oil filters. When he applied to us, he had a requirement of manufacturing 3000 oil filters per hour. Oil filters are one of the most popular items that can be manufactured with our mechanical eccentric presses and a transfer system between each cycle. We started studying the project by analyzing the technical drawings of the parts to be manufactured and came to the conlcusion is that a 250 T mechanical eccentric press will be more than enough for his production
After the proposal and visiting of each side, he decided to order this press and after 5 months the press was already in his facilty and manufacturing oil filters. There were 5 steps of drawing with the same press and each one changed the outlook of the oil filter a little more close to the final outlook of the oil filter.
The press weighted nearly 50 Tonnes and it is now working in 2 shifts, manufacturing 48000 oil filters per day, which is a record for our customer. Manufacturing oil filters, fire extinguishers, water heaters, boilers and cookware are one of the main tasks that our eccentric presses do by drawing or deep drawing the material. The details of this press and a video showing how it is producing oil filters can be seen on our Youtube Channel.
