This triple-action draw press is used to draw-form high-strength alloys for the aerospace and defense industry. An 8-point gib-guided system with fully adjustable self-lubricating graphite-impregnated bronze wear strips provides the ultimate resistance to lateral slide motion. A 300-ton clamp ram secures the blank material during downward draw forming operations. Once the material is clamped, the 800-ton draw ram extends to form the part. A third ram in the press’ bed can be used as either a knock out or a cushion depending on the tooling requirements. Both the clamp ram and knockout ram are regulated by proportional control valves allowing for dynamic cushion control through four different travel zones.
