THE LATEST IN FORGE PRESS TECHNOLOGY

Our F-Series forge press showcases our technological advances, as seen in the digitally rendered section in the left-side image. Intelligent and thoughtful design details were built into every machine, allowing tighter tolerances, faster heat dissipation, and easier access for maintenance.

Separating Clutch & Brake units help to reduce heat build-up and increase stopping times. The vented clutch is housed on the right side, activating slide movement. Equipped with multiple quick dump exhaust valves creates improved stopping time.

The brake unit on the left side of the frame is air-cooled on presses from 400 to 1000 tons and watercooled on presses from 1300 to 4400 tons.

Slide guidance & motorized slide adjustment allow for higher accuracy. That enables longer tool life and faster setups during die change. Our X-Angle slide guides allow for thermal expansion of the slide body

and, at the same time, allow for close tolerance settings. Motorized slide depth setting adjustment eliminates the need for shimming tooling like most conventional forge presses. Patented HOLP, Hydraulic Overload is built into the slide adjustment, enabling un-sticking when the press and tooling get stuck near BDC, Bottom Dead Center.

The main eccentric shaft has larger bushings with more contact surface, preventing shaft deflection. Each bushing has thermal sensors to monitor heat build-up. If factory-set temperatures exceed their limits displayed on the main run screen of our I-PRESS® control, the press will stop and show a fault of the bushing that is overheating.

I-PRESS® & AUTOMATION CONTROL FAMILY

Our patented I-PRESS® control system is available on three platforms, forge presses, mechanical stamping presses, and servo-hydraulic presses.

Click HERE for our interactive I-PRESS® control system for all three types of presses.

SERVO HYDRAULICS REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTION

Our servo-hydraulic presses reduce energy consumption and offer programmable motion and speed profiles during the slide stroke. Better formability and material flow improve the grain structure of forged parts.

With our multi-point setup screen, one can regulate speed and pressure up to seven times in one stroke.

Visit our I-BUILD to learn more with our 3D interactive press educational tool.

Our Servo Hydraulic presses are available from 200 to 4000 tons with a wide range of die area sizes.

CORED FORGE PRESSES SAVE MATERIAL & MACHINING TIME

The LSP SERIES forge press is ideally suited for “cored forging” which offers tremendous material savings and reduce secondary machining operations.

LSP stands for Long Stroke Press that comes with a lower in bolster hydraulic cored forging unit that drives the pins horizontally into the material as shown in photo.

The LSP as with all Sutherland forge presses comes with our I-PRESS FORGE® press and automation control which is the most fully featured and safest press control available in the metal forming industry.
