This new high-speed Maxform hydraulic press includes a linear-motor drive-back-gauge as an option. The six-axis back-gauge uses linear motor drive to deliver re-positioning speeds of 3,000 inches per minute in X (in/out) and Z (left/right) axes. Advanced hydraulics and control technologies deliver up to 700 inches per minute ram speeds. The machine is suited to high-volume manufacturing operations and is available in 90- to 350-ton models and lengths to 14 feet. Also, graphic controls help guide operators through each step of the bend sequence with 3-D part views. The Maxform comes standard with bolt-on Cincinnati Quick Change ram nose, which company officials claim will maximize ram protection by doubling load capacity from 15 to 30 tons per square inch.
