ROEMHELD unveils Industry 4.0 suitable press clamping systems

A new series of rapid clamping systems called Flexline suitable for predictive maintenance and use in Industry 4.0 applications will be introduced by Roemheld at the international metal working trade show, Blechexpo (Stuttgart, Germany, 5-8 November 2019).  

For the first time an element for the fully automatic clamping of dies on the press ram, which can measure real-time data on clamping forces and transmit them to the machine control, is featured in the Flexline system. Roemheld will demonstrate the clamping elements and components for optimizing set-up times in sheet metal forming at the Blechexpo trade show. 

We are taking inquiries for the Flexline system in Australia and New Zealand as the official distributor for Roemheld products here at Romheld Automation: 1800 465 348.

Real-time data from the clamping element for condition monitoring

With a series of integrated sensors, the rapid clamping system Flexline determines process data on the press ram in real time and forwards it to the machine control. The operator receives information about real clamping force on the die at any time and is immediately able to detect overloads on the clamping element, the occurrence of unusual tearing forces as well as die breakages and wear. The protocol of the clamping force progression facilitates error analysis and serves to solve problems quickly when servicing is required.

Thanks to a wide range of configuration options, the modular rapid clamping system Flexline can be used on almost all press models and for every die. It is suitable for both initial installation and retrofitting and is suitable for use in the automation of press lines. 

Changing technology to optimise set-up times

The ROEMHELD Group also offers a selection of components for fast and safe change of heavy dies. They have four versions of transport carts for different loads up to a maximum of 1,600 kg. These can be used to move heavy loads quickly, effortlessly and ergonomically. Options of supported, hanging and swivelling carrying consoles facilitate the insertion of dies into the press and the punching system. 

The use of freely configurable ball and roller bars is particularly economical. They allow dies to glide easily over tables, surfaces and feeds, making them easy to slide and position. The trade fair presentation will be supplemented by a selection of hydraulic, mechanical, electro-mechanical and magnetic clamping elements. 

Change technology on an Andritz Kaiser press

Various components such as magnetic clamping plates, locking cylinders, carrying consoles and roller bars can also be used on a “TOP Line 2000” press from Andritz Kaiser.
