In the realm of high-speed machining and continuous stamping processes, the utilization of cutting-edge lubrication techniques stands as a pivotal factor for achieving precision and efficiency. As the punch press, equipped with an accompanying feeder, engages in rapid and dynamic machining, it triggers a surge in temperature within both the die and the material being stamped. In this critical juncture, the application of lubrication to the material entering the die through the punch press feeder becomes paramount. Neglecting this lubrication step not only jeopardizes the surface finish of the final product but also undermines the longevity of the die itself, ultimately compromising the accuracy of the end result and failing to meet the stringent demands of high-precision stamping processes.
Revolutionizing Lubrication Strategies for Optimal Results
In the current landscape, the lubricating oils employed in stamping production exhibit an elevated level of viscosity. These oils are meticulously formulated, incorporating an array of cutting-edge additives such as novel foreign compounds, oleaginous agents, film-forming agents, rust inhibitors, and antioxidants. The resultant lubricating oils possess a unique blend of lubricating and compressive properties, playing a pivotal role in safeguarding both the integrity of the stamped products and the longevity of the dies. Consequently, these oils effectively enhance processing efficiency and elevate the quality of surface finishing.
Historically, within the context of continuous stamping operations involving a punch press feeder, the conventional practice involved manually applying lubricating oil at the outlet of the punch press feeder, after loading the oil into plastic containers. However, this approach posed several challenges. The relatively high cost of stamping lubricating oils combined with the absence of efficient oil-dispensing mechanisms not only led to contamination of the workshop environment but also resulted in substantial oil wastage due to inadequate recovery measures. As a result, substantial economic losses were incurred.
Introducing a Cutting-Edge Solution for Lubrication Efficiency
In a decisive move to address the issues of lubricating oil wastage and uneven lubrication in punch press stamping production, we have developed a groundbreaking dual-sided oiling apparatus tailored specifically for use alongside the punch press feeder. This innovative solution encompasses an array of components, including an aluminum alloy oil tank, an automated oil dispensing pump, fluidic solenoid valves, oil conveying tubes, main supports, fixed seats, dependable oil-application drum supports, secondary oil-application drum supports, quality-assured oil-application drums, and secondary oil-application drum assemblies.
Situated atop the main support, the aluminum alloy oil tank incorporates a filtration mesh, facilitating the reutilization of reclaimed oil, thus promoting sustainability. Positioned at the apex of the tank, an automatic oil dispensing pump is seamlessly synchronized with the punch press control system, enabling automated adjustment of oil delivery volume in precise alignment with the punch press operation requirements. This synchronization ensures the uniform and timely application of oil. The oil-application drums of this apparatus are equipped with high-density wool felt, sourced from Taiwan, renowned for its exceptional abrasion resistance and unmatched oil retention characteristics. This strategic selection guarantees comprehensive and reliable lubrication of the material emerging from the punch press feeder, minimizing lubricating oil consumption, promoting oil reuse, and significantly reducing production costs.
Seamless Integration for Superior Results
Operational in conjunction with the punch press feeder, the dual-sided oiling apparatus finds its position just behind the material support frame at the outlet of the punch press feeder. In this configuration, the quality-assured oil-application drum and the secondary oil-application drum play a dual role as both material supporting elements and lubrication mechanisms. Simultaneously, the third oil-application drum serves as a downward pressure component. The metal coil material is elevated by the quality-assured oil-application drum and the secondary oil-application drum, with the third oil-application drum applying pressure via a pneumatic cylinder, thereby effectively lubricating the stamped material through the wool felt. Notably, the wool felt on the quality-assured oil-application drum and the secondary oil-application drum efficiently collects excess stamping lubricating oil from the metal coil material.
Conclusively, the stamping lubricating oil is drawn quantitatively from the oil tank into the conveying tube, from where it is seamlessly transported to the third oil-application drum. This meticulous process culminates in a fully automated and highly efficient lubrication mechanism that ensures precision, minimizes wastage, and maximizes the value of each stamping operation. The integration of this advanced dual-sided oiling apparatus not only signifies a monumental leap in lubrication technology but also embodies a comprehensive solution to the challenges posed by traditional lubrication practices in the realm of high-speed machining and continuous stamping processes.
