Multi-Power Air Presses

Provisions for operator protection are always the full responsibility of the user Page 3 Use it in unlimited applications in metals, plastics, ceramics, leather, etc. ■ Multi-Power ® Presses are economical and easily adapted to your needs ■ Light weight and portable ■ Easily located at the work site ■ Small footprint requires less mounting space and requires less of your machine or bench space ■ High force combined with low impact saves tooling ■ Power return is strong enough to strip dies and/or lift heavy tooling ■ Accuracy is ensured with an extra long Duralon ® ram guide bearing ■ Repeatability: Dial-A-Stroke ® design provides rigid, precise control ■ All air operation is clean. No hydraulics to contaminate clean rooms or laboratories ■ Adjustable base makes the press easy to tool and do change-overs ■ Replaceable base enables you to mount tooling and change over quickly for short run jobs ■ Open front-to-back and left-to-right simplifies tooling and set up ■ Easy and accurate force adjustment (See explanation at top right) ■ Low maintenance ■ Saves air consumption Put it to work on these applications: Riveting Bending Punching Nibbling Lancing Notching Blanking Shearing Coining Marking Skiving Piercing Broaching Squeezing Crimping Pressing in Pressing out Straightening Assembly Clamping Embossing Forming and much more. . . A compact, powerful and versatile tool Delivering forces up to 11,000 pounds with Shop Air! Symbol for F55 Power Cylinder Shown Supply Precision Regulator 4 Way Control Valve An easy, economical way to accurately determine force requirements for your application Pressure (Force) Sensing Control Application: How much force does it take to press a bearing into its housing or to crimp a piece of tubing? When the press force application (pressure) is sensed and controlled by Fabco-Air's Pressure Sensing/ Sequence Valve (see description, page 10 , the press will apply a pre- selected (adjustable) force and automatically retract. This provides extremely accurate control for applications such as crimping, coining, assembly, etc. It also provides automatic quality control . 7. At the moment application is completed, read pressure gauge. 8. Multiply gauge pressure by effective piston area of your press (find piston areas in the "Power Cylinder Selection Guide", page 4) 9. Result is the force (lb.) required by your application. If the supply pressure should fall below the Sensing Valve setting, the valve will not provide a "ram up" signal to the press. And the press will stall without making a bad crimp or ruining the part. Once pressure is restored, the cycle will continue. The part that had been under the stalled ram will be finished as a "good part". The pressure gauge confirms the sensed pressure. Gauge Symbol for the F38 Power Cylinder Shown Pressure Sensing/ Sequence Valve (page 10) Regulated Supply 1. Adjust regulator to zero pressure. 2. Situate application under ram. 3. Shift valve to ram down position. 4. Slowly adjust regulator to raise pressure. 5. Ram will move down to application. 6. Continue increasing pressure while watching application. 4-15-98 Specifications subject to change without notice or incurring obligations
