The large number of tools with Prima Power punching machines results from a set of technical features which is not available from any other manufacturer:
• Two turret construction alternatives: 16 and 20 stations
• A vast variety of special tools
• Rotating Auto-Index system
• Intelligent ram
Tooling can be flexibly selected as required by the application. Up to 400 standard or 384 index tools can be simultaneously available in the turret for active use. Turrets with 16 and 20 stations are available in both Sharp and Genius series. The turrets are also compatible with Amada® tools.
The setup of all punching, forming and special tools is easy using the graphical tool library of the Tulus® operating system. Automatic tool lubrication system and vacuum assisted scrap removal are available as options.
Multi-Tool® is like a turret itself with separate tools in a cassette. Each tool can be selected with the rotating and locking mechanisms of the machine.
A large number of index tools facilitates setups and programming, shortens tool change times and increases production speed. The rotation mechanism of the punch and die is mechanically engaged and disengaged vertically. It enables full tonnage and punching
speeds to be used in any station, with any tool size.
Intelligent ram shortes tool change time and increases the number of tools in turret and especially that of index tools. Intelligent ram includes a rotating ram head, which enables old Multi-Tool® types to be used
as indexable. Automatic overload protection and central lubrication ensure dependable machine operation.
