FOR ASSEMBLY, ADJUSTMENT, CHECKING AND REPAIR OF DIES

AM SERIES

The die-splitter was developed following our customers’ needs to easily handle big moulds, also in the sheet metal sector.

The die-splitter is an innovative, versatile and efficient solution, in line with the increasing automation of the manufacturing process and with the higher and higher safety standards.

Advantages of the AM series:

  • Remarkable reduction of assembly and maintenance theme.
  • Ergonomic positions for performing work on the dies.
  • Extremely easy die handling.

Solutions for small and medium dies

Die – splitter used for assembly, adjustment, checking and repair of dies for blanking, die casting, etc. with a very stable structure and a robust base made of welded, normalized steel.

The plates of the die-splitter have 2 large cavities that give the operator direct access to the lower parts of the die – halves, allowing rapid assembly and disassembly of the various parts of the dies.

The lower plate is removable and slides on the base plate via ball bearings and is hydraulically actuated to move the lower part of the die outward (to the back of the die splitter), rotated by 90° to provide access to any part of the half – mould. As the removable plate returns back to its initial position, it stops mechanically and precisely, to ensure perfect repositioning, along with repeatability of the die halves’ closure.

The hydraulically actuated upper plate slides vertically on four guide columns and can rotate by 360° by reduction ears, to bring the upper die half in a comfortable position for working on it. The clamping of the upper plate in the exact horizontal position is ensured by four hydraulically actuated locating pins.

Solutions for big dies

Die – splitter used for assembly, adjustment, checking and repair of dies for blanking, die casting, etc. with a very stable structure made of welded and normalized steel. All the moving parts run on ball guide roller guides.The die – splitters is made up of two separated and independent vertical columns, one of which is mobile, equipped with vertical sliding brackets for fastening the upper part of the die, suitable for any die shape and width. The lower trucks are independent and slide externally of the columns, providing direct access to the lower part of the die half. This makes it possible to rapidly assemble and disassemble the various parts of the die.

The extractable lower trucks are independent and adapt to the die width, by sliding on ball guide rollers with hydraulic drive. They make it possible to bring the lower die section beyond the columns, and in some versions they have a 90° tilting option to facilitate inspection of the die.

The independent, vertically sliding upper brackets are actuated by means of electronically controlled parallelism axes recirculating ball screws. They allow a 180° rotation of the upper die half to achieve a comfortable working position. Clamping in the exact horizontal position is ensured by four hydraulically actuated locating pins.

Standard movements of the platens

For optimal access to the dies, the die splitter upper plate can be rotated forward by 180° on the short side and blocked by four hydraulic wedges. In this way, the operator can work at an optimal height, normally standing on the dedicated platform on the front side of the die splitter easily accessible through stairs.

Moreover, with rotation on the short side, the overall die splitter height is considerably reduced. This means an advantageous working position, and at the same time maximum working safety

Hydraulic cylinders drive the lower extensible plate outside the columns in an easily accessible position for the work outside the die splitter.
It slides on roller bearings and is laterally guided by ball bearings, completely friction- and wear-free.
In the final position, the plate comes down and is held by hydraulic cylinders.
The system guarantees high repeatability accuracy equal to ± 0,04 mm.

All functions are comfortably performed from the touch panel.

Standard equipment

Lower plate

Hydraulic cylinders drive the lower extensible plate outside the columns in an easily accessible position for the work outside the die splitter.

It slides on roller bearings and is laterally guided by ball bearings, completely frictionless and wear-free.
In the final position, the plate comes down and is held by 4 hydraulic cylinders, thus completely leaning on specific ground support bands. The system guarantees high repeatability accuracy equal to ± 0,04 mm.

The platen is equipped with dedicated openings in order to facilitate the access even on the backside of the dies, in case it was necessary to act on the components installed with a backward fastening.

Rotating upper plate

For optimal access to the dies, the die splitter upper plate can be rotated forward by 180° on the short side and blocked by four hydraulic wedges. In this way, the operator can work at an optimal height, normally standing on the dedicated platform on the front side of the die splitter easily accessible through stairs.

Moreover, with rotation on the short side, the overall die splitter height is considerably reduced. This means an advantageous working position, and at the same time maximum working safety.

The trucks are mobile and they can be adapted to any kind of die dimensions.

The platen is equipped with dedicated openings in order to facilitate the access even on the backside of the die, in case it is necessary to act on the components installed with a backward fastening.

Electronic management of the upper plate up/down stroke

The upper plate up/down stroke is based on a fully electronic management of the main hydraulic system, which through special proportional servo-valves controls and manages, with maximum accuracy, the oil flow generating the parallel movement of the 2 up/down stroke cylinders.

Movement is monitored by means of absolute linear Encoder with magnetic codification.

The device fully manages the synchronized movement of the two up/down stroke cylinders which move the press upper plate.

Electronic upper plate parallelism anti-unbalance safety device, protection od the press and moulds

The control system includes measurement devices (absolute linear Encoder with magnetic codification), which continuously check the press upper plate position and parallelism compared to the lower plate.

The value is dynamically displayed on the touch panel for the entire stroke.

Using this system both the press and moulds are protected from possible damage.

Full control of the machine

SIEMENS S7-1500 / MULTIPANEL TP900 CONTROL PANEL
The control panel is equipped with a touch panel with user-friendly graphics to simplify the use of the die splitter. Due to security reasons, some functions can be activated only through traditional buttons (i.e. the downstroke has to be performed with two-hands in accordance to the EU safety legislation).

The control panel is mounted suspended on the die splitter right side and can also be rotated to the back so that it is even easier to use for the operator.

In the pulpit station a new Siemens multi-touch ITP 1000 can be embedded (OPTIONAL). This new Siemens multi-touch ITP 1000 is supported by a dedicated app called MyMILL© App, that has been developed by Millutensil as a result of the ongoing cooperation between Millutensil and their customers.

Integrated diagnostic system

The Millutensil die splitters are equipped with a specific and exclusive diagnostic program. Any failures occurred during operations is displayed on the control display, where the affected point is indicated, as a result the machine downtime is minimized.

Main advantages:

  • Quick and easy troubleshooting
  • Considerable reduction of service costs

All die splitters are equipped with a E-Won modem, so that our Millutensil technicians can remotely operate on the spotting press to fix it.

Remote assistance service

The remote assistance can be easily performed through a mobile phone hotspot and a password that is provided in case of need.
Thanks to the Siemens multitouch ITP 1000 tablet (optional) and its MyMILL© App (optional) remote assistance is further simplified, as the tablet can be used to directly start the remote assistance call.
