An overview of Hilma Division of Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg. Co. and its organization, products, services and capabilities.
Hilma Division of Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg. Co. (Ellisville, MO) has been safely clamping dies for more than 50 years. Hilma now offers magnetic quick die change, in addition to hydraulic die clamping.
The M-TECS magnetic die change system clamps existing dies without retooling. The clamping force is evenly distributed, reducing tool wear. Custom engineered to your application, the new magnetic die change offers a superior multi-level safety system. The M-TECS product line, introduced to the market several years ago, embodies magnetic clamping technology, which means rapid clamping, and offers decisive benefits to users, such as:
- Clamping times between 2 and 3 seconds, thus a shorter machine downtime, reduced set-up costs and higher productivity
- All stamping dies can be changed without any modification, i.e. no standardization of the dies is required
- The clamping force spread across the full die surface, ensures distortion-free clamping, thus providing improved product quality, less scrap and reduced die wear
- Reduced maintenance costs are a logical result
- Quicker set-up times allows for shorter production runs
- Safe, ergonomic die handling with reduced operator effort
- Short run-ins lead to increased productivity
- Press control interface provides a higher safety level
PRINCIPLE OF THE FUNCTION OF THE MAGNETIC CLAMPING SYSTEM The technology of magnetic clamping plates is based on the principle of an electro-permanent magnet which means that it remains safely clamped, even in the event of a power failure. Electrical power is only needed for 2 to 3 seconds to clamp and magnetize or to unclamp and demagnetize the die. Once in operation, the magnetic platens, no longer need any power.
