Wedge Clamps for Forging are designed to suit the adverse conditions of forging while minimizing press downtime. The retracting clamping bolt and its rugged housing help to isolate forging heat and shock loads from the hydraulic circuit. The wedge clamp’s self-locking tapered bolt clamps on a mating 20° beveled surface on the die. Wedge clamps with a vertical clamping bar can be integrated into the lower master die set. The bar further isolates the hydraulics from the heat of the process and can be removed during the tool change.
||Roller and ball lifters make die changes fast and efficiently. For heavy loads, for linear movement of dies: On the underside of the roller bar, lifting pistons are provided. The pressure is applied to these pistons using hydraulic pressure generators, which lift then the complete roller bar. The die positioned on the roller bars is not in contact with the tabletop and can be easily moved.
Following manual positioning of the clamping nut against the clamping edge, the integral gear and the Belleville springs will be preloaded by turning the hexagon nut. As a result, a high clamping force is generated with a small torque. The required clamping force is reliably displayed by clamping force display and the integrated Belleville spring assembly ensures reclamping of the clamping nut in the case of clamping edge changes.
