Titan Steel Wheels Press Fixturing

To produce fixtures which clamp two variants of wheel for pressing in a new press. The fixtures will be moved in and out of the press using an automatic process. The fixtures will require to be interchanged using a simple method. Interaction between the two machines will be required.

To meet the specifications the following was used:

  • Siemens servo motor, gearbox and S110 drive and Bahr linear actuators. These were programmed to move to set positions for loading and pressing within the press.
  • Two hand start used to activate all movements.
  • Hydraulic power pack used to clamp the wheel in the fixture, lower, locate and clamp the fixture within the press.
  • Quick release hydraulic fittings for fast and clean fixture change over.
  • HMI interface for diagnostics and process information.
