SPOTTING PRESSES FOR ASSEMBLY, ADJUSTMENT, CHECKING AND REPAIR OF MEDIUM AND LARGE DIES

MIL SERIES

The press is used for splitting, adjusting, maintenance and try-out operations on dies and moulds (thermoplastics, die casting, thermosetting, rubber and blanking).
It is also possible to inject special waxes at low pressure into the mould.

The MIL series consists of 2 lines: Classic and Compact Series, declined in different models depending on the size and capacity of the platens.
Available platens sizes are from a minimum of 1.200×1.000 mm (47×39 inches) to a maximum of 5.000×2.500mm (196×98 inches).

Each line is available in two variants: the floor version and the pit version.

All components are purchased from well-known manufacturers, such as for example: hydraulic system Bosch-Rexroth, Hawe; electrical system Siemens, Schneider Elektrik, Phoenix Contact, Weidmüller. This guarantees a general good functionality of the press, and a quick procurement all over the world.

EC Declaration of Conformity and compliance with safety provisions in accordance with the current EC standards.

MIL CLASSIC SERIES

The die & mould spotting presses of the traditional MIL/CLASSIC series feature the extensible plate exit on the side, towards the short side of the distance between columns.

They are typically used in the plastics, rubber and die casting sectors.
This solution allows tilting on the extensible plate short side up to 70° on both sides.
In this version, the upper plate, too, is tilted on the short side from 100° to 180°.

MIL CLASSIC FLOOR VERSION

MIL CLASSIC PIT VERSION

The MIL/CLASSIC series provides great advantages compared to other solutions with long side rotation

  • Better working ergonomics, granting the operator to have easy access to any mould part without the use of platforms;
  • Much shorter total press height above ground, which often reduces excess costs for foundations;
  • Wide base press structure with greater stability;
  • The two mould-halves are located on the same side, so operators have an overview of the whole mould and can work more comfortably

MIL COMPACT SERIES

The MIL/COMPACT series die & mould spotting presses are a riveting innovation to optimize adjustments in the die casting sector.
They feature the extensible plate exit on the backside, towards the longest side of the gap between the columns.

In this sector moulds are relatively small, but they are often equipped with internal sliding beds that are driven by very long auxiliary cylinders, considerably increasing the total dimensions of the mould overall.

MIL COMPACT FLOOR VERSION

MIL COMPACT PIT VERSION

Therefore, the MIL/COMPACT series provides significant benefits:

  • Carrying out adjusting operations on a smaller and therefore cheaper press with subsequent reduction of the investment amortization period;
  • Handling of moulds with very long auxiliary cylinders without the need to disassemble them, providing substantial time-saving gains;
  • Possibility to design the plate exit on the backside with special travels

Standard movements of the platens

For optimal access to the mould, the press upper plate can be tilted forward by 100°.
By tilting the press plate on the short side, the operator can work at an optimal height, normally standing, without having to use unstable ladders, platforms or lifting equipment, which are often necessary in case of presses with long side rotation.
Moreover, with tilting rotation on the short side, the overall press height is considerably reduced.

The lower plate is hydraulically extensible, sliding on the base guided by ball bearings.
In the final position, the plate comes down and is held by means of 8 hydraulic cylinders, thus completely leaning on specific ground support bands.
The system guarantees high repeatability accuracy equal to ± 0,04 mm.
It allows to draw the lower part of the die or mould out of the press into an effortless working position
