Transporting pressing and punching dies as well as moulds is safe, effortless and time-saving with die changing carts from Roemheld, the company states.
Four ergonomic types with comprehensive safety equipment are available for loads of up to 1,600 kg. The RW die changing carts for dies and moulds of up to 500 and 1,000 kg are moved manually; two electrically RWA driven lifting die cart types are used for weights of up to 1,600 kg.
The Roemheld Group also provides carrying consoles as well as roller and ball bars for the quick and safe exchange of dies and their facilitated insertion and positioning in the press. In addition, they offer complete die changing systems for forming technology in combination with modular hydraulic power units and their comprehensive clamping technology portfolio.
Docking station for a safe die exchange
A docking station ensures the quick and safe die change for all four changing carts. While the cart is connected to the station, ball bearing inserts in the loading platform facilitate shifting and positioning. When the cart is undocked, these inserts are lowered and fix the die. Plug-in side bars provide for additional protection against displacement.
A hydraulic lifting column ensures the changing carts ergonomics. The loading platform height may individually be adjusted to the operator’s requirements by means of a pedal.
Support by auxiliary drive
An auxiliary drive completely integrated into the front axle is optionally available for the die cart with a capacity of 500 kg die weight. An appropriate casing protects it against impact and splash water; the maximum travel speed is 3 km/h. It is operated via a lever on the right-hand handle of the cart.
Electrically driven up to a weight of 1,600 kg
The electrically driven RWA lifting carriage for very heavy dies with a maximum weight of 1,600 kg is completely operated via a multi-functional shaft. Among other features, it accommodates a rotary switch for gradual speed control up to a maximum of 5 km/h and a toggle switch reducing the speed to 2 km/h.
The die cart is available with varying sizes of transport platforms and the associated four, six or eight integrated ball bars. Both the platform and the bars may be lifted and lowered precisely via a slide switch. A quick-action coupling allows for lifting the hydraulic ball bars in the press bench so that no additional hydraulic power unit is required for this.
