Greenerd Press & Machine Co. (Nashua, NH) is the exclusive North American representative for Tianjin Tianduan Press Co., China’s oldest and largest manufacturer of hydraulic presses to 40,000 tons.
One example of the company’s hydraulic press and automation capabilities is an automated 30-ton gantry-style hydraulic press that was built for an application requiring precise positioning of pins. A linear transducer mounted in the press cylinder enables a minimum depth to be programmed into the control to ensure proper pin depth is achieved. The 25-foot-long hydraulic press features automated gantry positioning with optical recognition of the distance between each set of pins to be inserted. The cycle can be initiated in autonomous operation where the gantry moves to each pin location and applies the set of tonnage on the pins.
As a Tier 1 industrial authorized robot system integrator of FANUC America Corp., Greenerd has full access to all models, training, and support to provide automation solutions in short time frames.
Complete, fully integrated production systems include raw material feeding, robotic loading and unloading, secondary processes, and stacking finished products for downstream processes. Automation capabilities include part inspection ranging from small sensors to complex camera systems, temperature monitoring, and control of press and non-press-related systems. Streaming critical production data to and from the press is also offered.
Presses are available in styles ranging from gap frame and straight-side to die-spotting and forging presses, with unlimited size and tonnage capabilities.
