Column guided Die Sets with wedges
Column guided Die Sets are manufactured product-specifically and offer the advantage of setting multiple joints in just a single press stroke. Bending or punching processes can also be integrated in this operation.
Die sets do not have their own drive unit and are installed, for example, in eccentric presses, bending presses or press brakes. The guiding and alignment task of the clinching tools to each other is carried out by the SFG.
The quality-determining base thickness of the clinching joints is achieved via integrated end stops within the tool. The number of clinching joints to be set is only limited by the max. pressing force of the press used.
Using sliders, clinching joints can also be set at different angles to the press stroke. This means that it is also possible to set clinching joints in the horizontal direction.
