Quick Die Change
for Transfer Press.
Transfer press bolsters must be changed during die changes. The control signals are disconnected and reconnected using traditional pin and socket connectors. But the pin and socket interface cannot endure heavy cycle usage, leading to connector pins that wear and break causing costly downtime.
Solution in reach.
Applied Robotics' electrical docking systems utilize contacts in the electrical block that are spring-loaded to reduce wear from repeated coupling and uncoupling. Housings are designed with internal compliance that provides automatic alignment over millions of cycles.
The solution is longer lasting and more cost-effective. And less maintenance is required, resulting in higher overall production rates.
