Greenerd Press & Machine Company has announced it will be highlighting the company’s extensive hydraulic press and automation capabilities at IMTS Booth #236402 located in the Fabricating Pavilion, North Hall in McCormick Place, Chicago IL from Sept 12- 17, 2022. Application experts and design engineers from Greenerd will be available to discuss specific user applications and press requirements.
Greenerd offers unique hydraulic press application solutions for a range of industries. One example that demonstrates this versatility is a very large 2500 Ton Compression Molding Press that Greenerd will discuss at IMTS. Greenerd has designed and engineered this 2500 Ton press, and is currently building it in their main facility as part of a seven-press order involving precisely controlled heated platens measuring 108″ square. The press features an innovative mold transfer system which significantly improves the ergonomic and safety dynamics for operators, and reduces the press idle time between cycles.
“To meet the demands of today’s challenging applications, we are providing manufacturers with press solutions that are flexible, productive and reliable as well as often being quite large and complex,” commented Greenerd Press & Machine Company’s CEO, Mr. Jerry Letendre. “For even greater manufacturing efficiency, we are able to provide our hydraulic press customers with turnkey, state-of-the-art robotic and other product handling solutions.”
Greenerd is a Tier 1 Industrial Authorized Robot System Integrator of FANUC America Corporation, the industry’s leader in automated manufacturing equipment. The partnership gives Greenerd full access to the comprehensive offerings of FANUC Robots including all models, training and support, providing state-of-the-art automation solutions in short time frames. Complete, fully integrated production systems can be provided including simple raw material feeding systems, and robotic solutions including loading/unloading the press, the ability to perform an optional secondary part manipulation or process, automated inspection of parts and stacking finished products for downstream processes. The scope of automation can also encompass part inspection systems, ranging from small sensors to complex camera inspections, and temperature monitoring/control of press and non-press related systems. Streaming critical production data to and from the press is also offered.
Greenerd’s extensive line of hydraulic presses are available in a variety of styles ranging from gap frame and straight-side to die-spotting and forging presses, with unlimited size and tonnage capabilities. Greenerd has a long tradition of designing, engineering and manufacturing customized hydraulic presses with product handling solutions.
