News Article About Hydraulic Presses
Hydraulic presses are basically machines which make forming or gluing by pressing (compressing) with the pressure obtained from hydraulic (fluid) power. Hydraulic presses used in the furniture and woodworking sector can be classified according to the material to be processed. These basic operations can be listed as main headings;
– Bonding of materials such as chipboard, mdf for different works,
– Gluing the massifs together for different works,
– Gluing veneer sheets together to obtain plywood,
– Production of door wings by gluing panels on the bushes,
– Bonding of materials such as natural-artificial veneer, paper, pvc, laminate on the plates,
The first thing that should be considered in the selection of hydraulic press is to determine which of the works that the press will be used.
First, the specific pressure required for each process (kg / cm2), ie the pressure in kg to be applied to each cm2 of the surface, can vary, and the hydraulic unit and machine construction can also vary. Our company AS METAL gives the utmost attention to perform these calculations with a qualified engineer team. In addition, thanks to the European-made hydraulic units (pumps, etc.), we can provide all the necessary pressure and provide a quiet working environment.
Secondly, a press size should be determined in order to obtain optimum productivity by considering the work dimensions to be pressed. Standard sizes are available for basic operations as well as hydraulic presses for special processes. Our company AS METAL offers unlimited options to our esteemed customers in this regard, capable of manufacturing all kinds of qualified technicians after the calculations made with precision engineer staff.
Thirdly, the material to be used on the surface of the press plates can vary. For example, in the application of materials such as paper, laminate, chromium-nickel stainless steel plates should be placed on the surface, while in the application of materials such as veneer and massive aluminum plates should be placed on the surface. Our company AS METAL is pleased to provide the necessary guidance and information flow to our valued customers in this regard, and will not hesitate to achieve the optimum efficiency with the right machine principle for the right job.
Press plates should be selected in this direction as the fourth pressing process can be cold or hot. Hot plates in terms of heating techniques; They are divided into two main headings as plates heated directly by electrical resistances or plates heated by hot oil circulation.
Our company AS METAL offers both self-developed solutions to our valued customers for both heating techniques. In the plates which are heated directly by electrical resistances, our company uses self-developed tube resistors, each of which is independent of each other. In this way, each resistance can be intervened one by one and further maintenance costs can be minimized. In the case of the plates heated by hot oil circulation, the oil heated in the special cartridges developed by us is turned into the plates with the European circulation pump. This allows you to save up to 40% in electrical energy.
Fifth, the work volume and capacity should be calculated correctly and the hydraulic press of our choice should have the production capacity according to your wishes. Standard manual feeding single or multi-layer hydraulic presses, automatic feeding single or multi-layer hydraulic presses or short-long cycle semi-automatic line presses can be selected for this purpose. Our company AS METAL has the capacity to offer every kind of selection to our esteemed customers. Below are two examples of our pressing lines.
- a) Single-daylight, top-pressed semi-automatic press line.
- b) Multi-daylight, semi-automatic press line.
Our company AS METAL uses the manual-automatic opening system as standard in all of the hydraulic presses it produces. In fact, all of our presses can be set by the operator to select whether the movable plate is opened by command or automatically as a result of the operating time by means of a selector button.
Our company AS METAL exports to many countries, including the European countries, as well as domestic production is showing maximum sensitivity to CE norms. All the equipment on our machines are in CE norms and carefully selected and assembled in accordance with CE norms and tested one by one after production. In this respect, electrical, electronic and safety equipment of leading European companies are used in our machines. One of the most important safety features of As Metal branded hydraulic presses is that while the safety wire that rotates around all other presses is pulled, only the machine stops (in this case it is not possible to recover the limb trapped between the movable plate without the help of another person.), while the As Metal brand presses the machine and stops the moving plate. In this way, the operator can secure himself against accident even if he is alone.
Our first hydraulic presses and wood furniture in Turkey, which has pioneered the manufacture of the company performing sector for the processing industry AS METAL, which is a continuation continuous R & D in the year 2000 the collected studies on the fruit; has been successful in being the first European company to install PLC control unit as standard on the hydraulic presses manufactured in general. We know our company’s leadership in our sector and pioneering technological developments with the support we receive from our valued customers.
