Equipment and Process
The base is a 150 ton Hydraulic Press with a PLC operated Servo driven, conveyor belt feeder system. Exceptional “run at” averages are achieved by using multi cavity dies.
The press is designed to decoil rolls of material on a continuous basis. Sheets of material can also be die-cut. Indexing is done by a PLC controlled servo-motor. Dies are designed to minimize material wastage. The finished goods product is stacked by a shuttle system. The product is manually inspected, counted and packed.
Working one shift in a 42 hour week and meeting demand at 70% of available capacity.
