1. Explanation of Model Numbers
2. Selection of Clamps
|Basic clamp selection||Select TX Clamp when die U-slots are provided.
Select TY Clamp when die U-slots are not provided.
|Determine the required clamping force||Clamping force = 20% of Press Tonnage|
|Distribution of upper to lower die clamping force||Higher press tonnage for the upper die.
Ratio of upper clamping force to lower clamping force=3:2
(Single die clamping force)=(upper or lower die clamping force)÷number of clamps
|How to determine the number of clamps required||Determine the number of clamps according to the dimensions and configuration of your die and the T-slot arrangement on the press.|
|Clamping Force (tf)||3||4||6||10||15||20|
3. Selection of Die Lifters
Select Spring-Loaded or Hydraulic Die Lifters
Select Spring-Loaded (DR DU) or Hydraulic (DL) Die Lifters according to the press tonnage, die weight and the die positioning accuracy required.
