AGME Hydraulic Presses have been installed in the main automotive companies throughout the World in forming processes like tube crimping. Our engineers offer a complete turnkey package from the initial design to the final machine installation. Agme´s machines are constructed to offer the fastest solution to their automation needs. These hydraulic presses control the crimping process in order to achieve the parts´ homogeneity and minimize the cycle time.

This crimping module consists of:

-One AGME hydraulic press model PH15
-Flattening tools
-Two units with their tooling to penetrate the tube driven by pneumatic cylinders
-Four 10 Tn hydraulic units with their individual axes and mechanical stops
-Two hydraulic power packs 
-Pneumatic components
-Electric components:
Power elements Siemens
Control by plc Siemens Automation S7-300
Tactile operating board “Siemens ref TP-177B”
-One OK ejection ramp and
Automatic eduction to a ramp the OK parts and with NOK parts selection to a box

Process Description:
- The operator loads the tube manually into the machine
- Pushing the button: The security systems is activated
- Inserting two axes/dies inside the tube to allow the correct deformation from the inside
- The hydraulic press PH-15 advances together with 4 hydraulic cylinders to carry out the crimping operation. 
- The press and the cylinders return to their initial position
- Two axes/dies return and release the tube
- Automatic unloading to one ejection ramp with OK/ NO OK part selector
