Ready for series production

This Omt die is a combined progressive-transfer tool, that simultaneously produces 2 pieces for automotive industry (RH piece and 1 LH piece).
Starting from coil width 510 mm, the die performs the first 10 steps with progressive die: 3 steps for blank cutting, 1 step for forming of recesses, 1 step for hole cutting, 5 steps for piece bending.
The last step, made with transfer system, performs the final closure of the piece.
The evacuation of the pieces is made laterally in the die, using specific pneumatic cylinders. The extracted pieces end up on conveyor belts, that carry the pieces directly to the mounting line.
The dimensions of the die are 3500x1500xH750mm.
The production of the piece is done on transfer press 1200 Ton.
The project of the die has been made with CAD 3D supported by dedicated application for the development of sheet metal.
Bending punches and matrixes are made with Toolox 33 with relative coatings, cutting punches and matrixes are made with hardened 1.2379.
All structures are made with 1.0503. The progressive die and the transfer die are installed on a single upper and lower union plate for the fixing of the die on the press with the help of fast clampings.
All the parts that build the die are made with machining centers and cutting edge EDM facilities, supported by CAM 3D programming. The samples produced with the die have been controlled and measured with 3D measuring machine.
The Omt die has been delivered to the customer already tried out and ready for series production.
