Giving safety a hand

Metalforming Machinery Makers' Association : 16 November, 2006  (Company News)
The new power unit with two-hand control from Roemheld has been designed to increase the safety of hydraulically-operated fixtures in workpiece clamping, forming, punching, and pressing. A reworked hydraulic control with 4/3 directional control valve (poppet type) provides more safety in clamping and forming processes with operating pressures up to 500 bar.
The new power unit with two-hand control from Roemheld has been designed to increase the safety of hydraulically-operated fixtures in workpiece clamping, forming, punching, and pressing. A reworked hydraulic control with 4/3 directional control valve (poppet type) provides more safety in clamping and forming processes with operating pressures up to 500 bar. It is mounted on a newly designed valve block that also enables the direct mounting of further hydraulic control elements. An adaptation of the two-hand controls ensures easy realisation of manual coupling processes. Due to the reduced number of hydraulic valves and their connecting elements the power unit has a simple and function-safe design, which guarantees highest process safety and optimum protection of the operator. The reduction of components does not only provide safety-related advantages.

Less space is required for the hydraulic control elements and mounting expenses are reduced as no tubing is required. For more information on Roemheld’s new, power unit with two-hand control and a copy of the latest product catalogues, visit www.roemheld.co.uk or telephone 01604 497665. photo image caption: New power unit with two-hand control from Roemheld Note to editors: The individual companies within the Roemheld group together offer a comprehensive range of workholding products.
