Innovative Hydraulic Press Solutions

Greenerd Press & Machine Company will be highlighting the company's extensive hydraulic press and automation capabilities at FABTECH in booth D47138. Application experts and design engineers from Greenerd will be available to discuss specific user applications and press requirements.

Greenerd offers unique hydraulic press application solutions for metalforming and fabricating as well as other industries. One example that demonstrates this versatility is a large 2,500 ton Compression Molding Press for rubber molding, which Greenerd will highlight at the show. The press features a new control system that allows automatic bumping (pressure release of the top platen while maintaining continuous contact of the mold). The process may also be done manually at any time. The press features a ventilation system that draws all fumes away from the molding area without interfering with the operation or access to the press; a bottom platen shuttle system with 120" of travel to fully exit the press for clear overhead access; and an energy-reducing dwell latch.

"To meet the demands of today's challenging applications, we are providing manufacturers with press solutions that are flexible, productive and reliable as well as often being quite large and complex," said Greenerd Press & Machine Company CEO, Jerry Letendre. "For even greater manufacturing efficiency, we are able to provide our hydraulic press customers with turn-key, state-of-the-art robotic product handling solutions."

Greenerd is a Tier 1 Industrial Authorized Robot System Integrator for FANUC America Corporation. The partnership gives Greenerd full access to the comprehensive range of FANUC robots. Greenerd provides training and support and offers state-of-the-art automation solutions in short time frames. Complete, fully integrated production systems can be provided, including simple raw material feeding systems and robotic solutions for loading/unloading the press, optional secondary part manipulation or process, automated inspection of parts and stacking finished products for downstream processes. The scope of automation can also encompass part inspection systems ranging from small sensors to complex camera inspections, and temperature monitoring/control of press and non-press related systems. Streaming critical production data to and from the press is also offered.

Greenerd's extensive line of hydraulic presses are available in a variety of styles ranging from gap frame and straight-side to die-spotting and forging presses, with unlimited size and tonnage capabilities.
