FORMAX® PLUS for Large Parts: 5-6 Dies, Short, Medium, Long Work Models
All dimensions are in millimeters unless otherwise noted. Max speed refers to shortest stroke model specification.
Zero-Clearance Heading Slide Guiding
The Zero-Clearance Heading Slide is a 2-axis design that utilizes fixed liners that provide ‘Zero Clearance’ during the work stroke of the machine. Zero Clearance Heading Slide Guidance system precisely aligns punches to dies, and part concentricities are held to tolerances once thought impossible.
FORMAX is the only Cold Forming machine designed with heading slide liners that are Sealed to prevent foreign materials from damaging the liners and causing excess/pre-mature wear.
Pick Move Place allows for excellent control of complex part shapes, and is ideal for head heavy, difficult to transfer parts. The extra wide finger opening capability clears larger punches.
