When an overload occurs, an oil-filled chamber trips,enacting AIDA's patented oil escape system that delivers the fastest response in the industry (ten milliseconds), ensuring that your press is not stuck at BDC or damaged.This instantaneous reaction is only possible with the AIDA ball socket type HOLP system.
Ball socket connections eliminate one of the largest maintenance costs of a stamping press: the wrist pin slide connections. This improved design withstands the rigors of heavy progressive die stamping by providing increased surface area to transmit high forces. Slide tipping, caused by off-center loads in multi-station dies, has a direct effect on the slide suspension point. When off-center loads exist and slide tipping is the result, the ball seat rotates with the slide but maintains a full load carrying area so that no excessive stress is placed on the suspension point components and there is no additional wear of the components.
The AIDA six point flat slide guides are found on the NC1 and NC2 Models. These guides are designed with extra length and surface area to provide the greatest possible resistance to slide tipping caused by off-center loading in the die. Guide clearance is set and maintained using full-length shims both right to left and front to back. This requires less maintenance than other press manufacture's setting system, which uses small screws to control the clearance.
AIDA is the premier global manufacturer of metal stamping presses and continues to take the lead in developing new and innovative metalforming solutions.
