C Frame Hydraulic Press
As a widely used machinery in various industrial sectors, a hydraulic press is a machine press using a hydraulic cylinder that generates great and sudden compressive forces. The design of hydraulic press is based on Pascal's principle, that is, the pressure throughout a closed system shall be constant as always. In a press machine, one part of the system is a piston which acts as a pump, with a moderate mechanical force acting on a small cross-sectional area. Besides, the other part of this machine is a piston with a larger area which generates a comparatively relevant large mechanical force . The C frame hydraulic press is a press machine based on the same mechanical principle that is designed with the appearance of a bowed shape that looks like the letter C, and is usually operated vertically.
Usages and Applications
Nowadays, hydraulic presses are commonly used in the metalworking sectors for many kinds of forming operations, such as clinching, forging, molding, punching, blanking, deep drawing, and other metal forming operations onto a wide variety of metal materials. With the press machines, the cycle time of the production procedure could be shortened in a large scale, and at the mean time, within an acceptable tolerance values regarding the output. Because compared with metal cutting processing, the procedure of metal forming offers faster shaping process that makes mass production feasible and practical.
Most of the press machines are used for mass production model, rendering work pieces in a targeted shape within a short period of time with a large amount of items. While currently, the trend of small amount but largely diversified production takes the leading role in the world industry, so that the issue of a quicker die change mechanism in order to achieve agile manufacturing becomes very important and critical for manufacturers across all kinds of industries in the global market. Business owners in the automotive and electrical sectors are those who adapt to this trend well among many other sectors because of the assistance of computer assistance.
Automation & Forming
For instance, the production line of wheel rims requires complicated pressing processes due to the design of automobile wheels. Just for producing one type of rim, it takes a long production line to complete. However, manufacturers are faced with the demands to produce various rim products within the demanded period of time. So that they come up with the automation system that can accelerate the operation of the hydraulic pressing manufacturing in the manufacturing sites. As a result, the correlation between forming machines and automation systems are getting more and more intimate nowadays. On the other hand, servo presses and mechanical presses are also widely applied as well as the hydraulic presses and each of them represent different mechanical advantages.
Besides the metal working industry, with the ongoing development towards light-weight parts for sports, aerospace, and automotive appliances and many other industries, servo hydraulic and hydraulic presses have become a crucial tool for the thermoplastic industries in the plastics and rubber sectors.
