Applications : Cutting out


Strip cutting is a common operation in the production of metal parts. The operation consists in separating all or part of the zones of the same strip in order to obtain the desired shape. One of the solutions often used in industry is the use of mechanical presses or pneumatic presses to cut all kinds of parts.

EMG presses offer quality and precision in cutting. They also bring speed and rapidity of execution when the production of parts must be carried out in large series. 

Stamping with a pneumatic or mechanical press

Whether pneumatic or mechanical, a press can cut all types of materials (steel, aluminum, stainless steel...) regardless of the shape of the metal parts to be machined. The power of the press must be adapted to the thickness (up to several millimeters) and characteristics of each material in order to obtain a perfect cut. The depth of the gooseneck informs the length and width of the parts that can be machined. 

The choice of the type of press is also made according to the production needs, for example, in small or large series. Pneumatic presses are ideally suited for small to medium-sized production runs. The high power of these EMG presses allows for high precision cutting, without burrs and without effort for the operator thanks to an effort management system.

For large series, EMG mechanical presses are by far the most productive process for cutting metal strips. The presses can be integrated into production lines with decoilers, straighteners and feeders and can work at speeds of up to 240 strokes per minute for the 6T press. 

The mechanical presses allow the rapid processing of a very large number of parts with a simple feeding process up to the removal of each part in total safety for the operator. 

It is also possible to work piece by piece with a manual introduction in the tool of the part to be cut. The choice of the press will be made according to several criteria:

  •     The force required for cutting
  •     The characteristics of the tooling (dimensions and stroke)
  •     The desired rate.
