Hill Engineering of Carol Stream, IL, a member of the Formtek Group, has supplied an OEM Roll Forming Manufacture with a flying slugless panel cutoff die and HAP 30 ton bladder style air press. The air press was shipped complete with press rails, back stop return plate and wired terminal box to be incorporated into a line they are providing for their customer with open loop measuring. The customer had multiple part widths that had to run, but because of the part configurations they could not be run as a center or edge constant. So engineering team at Hill designed slugless die was designed to handle multiple part width configurations with almost no changeovers required.
With Hill Engineering’s long history in design and innovations the initial system was designed to be flexible so to maximize the customers initial capital expenditures so future products to run on the line.
