III. Preparation before Operation

In order to make the punch press work in the best status, the user should use the press properly and calculate and refer to the following items before operate the press.

Rated Load Capability

The working load should be limited under the nominal pressure strictly. The overloading protector prevents overloading caused by mis-punching or sheet of non-uniform thickness in the process. It is wrong to use press with random overloading and easy to damage presses. So it is very important to calculate the working load before working.

Torque Capability

The punching force will be changed with the change of slide position. You should use the press according to the stroke pressure graph which shows this change.


Stick will happen if the working pressure exceeds the rated torque. Besides that, the punch press machine will be stuck if applying load before clutch engaged.

This phenomenon will do harm to the clutch. So, you must stop the punch press machine before in the course of processing immediately if it happens and take measures to prevent happening next time.

Eccentric Load

In principle, it must be avoiding the eccentric load that will cause non-parallel between the lower surface of slide and the bolster, and uneven force to slide gib which will infect the precision. If not, please do it according to the figure of allowable distance that the load center deviates from the bolster to assure the precision and safety.

working pressure

Single Turn on Frequency

In order to make the punch press work in the best status and assure the service life of the clutch and brake, please work according to single turn on time listed in the main specification of the press. It will cause the abnormal wear of the clutch and brake and failure if exceed the single turn-on time. The single turn-on time of this press is not more than 25/minute.

IV. Construction and Adjustment of Principle Units

Frame (Figure 2)

The welded frame adopts high-strength steel. The slide moves to and fro inside the gibs. The screw of right side frame is used for adjusting the clearance of gibs and slide.

The adjustment of knockout rod will make punched parts to be pushed down when the slide approaches the top dead center. But, if should care not to make the stripper touches the bottom of slide knockout rod groove to avoiding the accident.

The bolster of frame is the basic measurement of the precision. It should maintain the surface roughness and flatness for avoiding the smash, hit and scratch of tools and cutting tools.

Driving Parts (Figure 3)

The main motor drives the flywheel by the V belt and makes the energy be saved in the flywheel then transmitted to gear shaft by the friction clutch and brake. The gear shaft will drive the big gear dipped in oil bath, then the big rear will drive the crankshaft to make slide move up and down.

V Belt adjustment: First unscrew 4 locknuts, then turn equally 4 adjusting screws.

The motor bracket will be adjusting up and the belt could be adjusted. When the v belt is straightened, press about 2 kg forces on the center of V belt, and the belt will bend to 10 mm of proper tension. After adjustment, tighten the 4 locknuts. The new v belt will work stably after used for several days. Adjust the V belt again if necessary. The v belt should be kept in the cool and dry place, and avoid light and oil

When replace the V belts, first unscrew the adjusting screws, loosen the belt, uninstall. the clutch brackets, and pull out the belt. It is very necessary to change all belts to new ones. Using new and old ones simultaneously will cause the service life reduction of belt for different tension. These old V belts Gan cooperate with other old ones. In addition, it is noticeable that belts of same nominal dimension maybe have length variance of several centimeters. So, the belts of same group should.be same length.

Auto Feeding. Shaft End: If users need auto-operation, they can assemble the auto feeder to the output shaft of frame face. (Output shaft is for special order. Ordinary products do not have)

Clutch and Brake (Figure 4)

This punch press adopts pneumatic friction clutch and brake which is assembled in the inner cavity of frame. (Refer to the clutch manual)

Slide (Figure 5)

The slide is one of the key parts of presses. Its precision directly influences the precision of presses. This punch press adopts square hexagonal long gibs which can attain good precision and stability.

Connection rod and ball-head screw are components that change the rotation motion to reciprocating motion. The lower end of ball-head screw touches the ball-seat There is the hydraulic overload protector under the ball-seat. The protector could exhaust the oil in the hydraulic die cushion in about 1/100 second, then at the same time send out electric signal and make the press stop emergent for assuring the safety of die and press. After the failure is eliminated and the slide moves back to top dead center, the hydraulic die cushion will rebuild the pressure automatically. Then the punch press could go on working.

User can adjust the die height. Please refer to relative operation of electrical parts of service manual.

There are shims in the connection rod and cap. After long time operation, the clearance of crankshaft and bushings will be increased. user can take out shims to adjust the clearance of crankshaft and bushings. (Normal clearance: 0.08-0.13mm)

4.1 Clearance Adjustment between slide and gibs

The distance between slide and gibs must be appropriate. It will make slide run smoothly and reliably. If necessary, it should be adjusted properly with the following procedure.

(1) Loose the screws on the gibs and loose the set screws on the right side of frame.

(2) Adjust the left side gibs and tighten the screw.

(3) Adjust the right side gibs, choose the shims according to the clearance for the decision of taking out or increasing. After adjustment, tighten the front screws and right-side set screws.

(4) The clearance between slide and gibs should be 0.03-0.05mm, but the total allowable value of front and back contact surface clearance should be 0.04-0.0Bmm. Usually the clearance between upper and lower ends is large. When depth of the thickness gauge is above 30mm, the measured value is right.

Note: 0. 03mm gauge in, 0. 05mm gauge not in。

(5) When all is adjusted, check the clearance of every part. If not right, re-adjust it.

4.2 Slide Knock-out Device

The knockout force is of 5% of nominal pressure.

4.2.1 Structure of slide knockout equipment

(1) Be combined of knockout rod, knockout seat and knockout bar.

(2) Knockout bar is set above central line of slide, which crosses slide.

(3) When the slide rises, knockout bar touches knockout rod, which ejects out the punched parts.

4.2.2 Operation and Adjustment of Slide Knockout Equipment

(1) Unscrew fix screw of knockout rod, and adjust knockout rod to proper position. It is noticed that knockout rods of left and right sides should be with same height.

(2) After adjustment, retighten fixed screws.

(3) When using knockout bar, the touch of transverse bar and slide will cause noise.

4.2.3 Notice

When user changes the die, it should be noticed that before adjusting the height of slide, raise knockout rod to the highest position to prevent striking knockout rod when adjusting die height. Adjust the position of knockout bar, which could make material being pushed when slide moves close to top dead center. But don’t let knockout bar touches the bottom of knockout slot for fear of accident.

4.3 Counter

The counter installed in the electric panel is used to calculate and display cumulative number of strokes. When the slide moves up-and-sown once, the counter will take count of 1. lf it need be reset, press the reset button. The counter can calculate the production output.

  • Notice

When reset the counter, it must stop the slide in the top dead center. If reset the counter when the punch press is still working, it is possible to damage the counter.

Hydraulic Overload Protector

The hydraulic overload protector could auto=detect the oil pressure of oil hydraulic cylinder in the slide. When the oil pressure is not enough, it could supply the pressure quickly to maintain the normal work ability. When the overload caused by mis-punching and uneven thickness of sheet in the process happens, the protector can unload immediately to protect the service life of accessories and die. The hydraulic overload protector consisted of pressurized cylinder, pressure relieve valve and inductive switch.

5.1 Preparation before operation of Hydraulic Overload Protector

  • Check the oil level and check if there is enough oil in the air pump. If oil is not enough, loose the screw of pouring orfice and charge antioxidant pickling hydraulic oil (ISO VG-32) or other hydraulic oil of same performance.

VI. Lubrication (Figure 7)

The punch press machine adopts intermittent auto lubrication system and manual oiling lubrication. The oil is pumped to all lubrication points through the oil promoting distributor. The flywheel rolling bearing, rotating joint and air cushion are lubricated by oil gun.

The lubrication system is very important to the crankshaft press. Through the lubrication, it can reduce wearing of accessories, increase the service life, assure the precision, and reduce the power consumption and maintenance fee. So except the friction surface of friction clutch anti brake, ·all parts in relative motion must be lubricated.

① When operating the press, it should notice the lubrication effect to prevent the oil way jamming. Prevent the main bush, connecting rod bearing and slide gibs being heated and burned. The temperature should not be over +70°C and rising, temperature Should not be over <+-35°C. It should stop the punch press machine once heating. the temperature of main motor can not be over +60°C (Measure the cover of the motor).

② Replacement of lubrication oil in the gear case:

It should replace the lubrication oil for the first time after 3 months (about 750 hours) use. After that, it should replace the lubrication oil for once every 6 months and clean the gear case every 6 months (about 1500 hours).

③ The lubrication of the flywheel bearing and driving shaft bearing is enclosed type, fill the grease before assembling. It should fill the lubricating grease for once (3# lithium grease) every 2 months, and check for once every half year. When fill the grease to bearing, fill about 60-70% between flywheel and bearing.

④ The counterbalance cylinder adopts lubricated air lubrication and oil hand gun lubrication.

⑤ In order to assure the lubrication of ball screw and ball seat, it should add 100ml 20# oil before testing after the installation.

⑥ Lubricator: Add 20# oil to lubricator and check it every week


Lubrication and oil changing should refer to the lubrication direction on the press.

Lubrication on working:

  1. First, start the main motor, the lubrication pump will work and operate the press after 5 minutes.
  2. The punch press machine should go into production after the main motor running for 10 minutes when the press stops working for 24 hours.

Lubricating Oil Box:

Check the lubricating oil box every day and fill the oil according to the need. During the initial installation period, the requirement of oil is large and it should fill the oil in time.
