Bring us your most demanding requirements. R.L. Best engineers will design your press utilizing the latest design technology. Each precision component is then fabricated and machined in our fabricating shop.
Manufactured to Your Specifications
The press is then assembled, tested, delivered and installed on your premises with
the use of our own mobile crane system. Our technicians have the ability and qualifications to make
lifts of 200 tons with ease or provide precise alignment of components utilizing a laser transit and
A. Hydraulic system: High capacity; cartridge-insert and manifold-mounted hydraulic valves reduce potential sources for leaks; and all hydraulic lines have large radius bends or formed fittings.
B. Vee-guided shear with butt knock-off: Automatic knock-off device prevents butt end of billet from hanging up on die; fully guided on dual, adjustable vee-ways; heavy construction and chisel type knife ensure minimum deflection, clean shearing; eliminates “flares” that damage containers and cause production delays; and wear adjustment takes only minutes.
C. Flat ways: Alignment is much easier; maintenance downtime is reduced.
D. Container – Three-point alignment: Rugged, one-piece housing has top guiding, rides on flat ways; adjustment is simplified; precise alignment permits use of fixed dummy blocks; held by quick release locking rings; heating is more uniform; has stainless steel heat shields, and two thermocouples provide heat control and thermal protection.
E. Die-changing system: Die station is adjacent to operator’s control panel and die changes can be made in less than one minute.
