The design of an R-SOM requires many considerations, but the piece part is the first and most important. The part controls how it is to be handled. The first two considerations is how this part is going to be held during the rotary operation and how is it going to be unloaded. Sometimes there is a need to raise and lower the table or locating disc into which the parts are to be placed. The part can also be placed directly on to a post or slitter, and in this case extra care must be taken to protect the operator.

Added Value Operation

- Continuous indexing of molded parts
-Two-stage die trimming of I.D. and O.D.
- Produces 1,000-3,000 finished parts per hour (typical)
- Ideal partner with injection, compression or transfer press in work cell

The entire machine punches parts as follows:

1&2 The operator loads parts.
3 The parts are sprayed with a punching solution.
4. Idle.
5. The parts are cross-punched.
6. Could be used for inspection, if not it is
7. Unload, an air cylinder is lifted from the
bottom, pins push through index plate and
locator. The parts can then be blown or
pushed off the top of the pins. The parts now
fall outside of the machine complete.
8. Can be used for loading if necessary, or idle.
