The fixture is fitted to the base of the hand press then the punch or insert holder is fitted to the head of the press tool. A casting is then loaded onto the fixture which aligns the casting in the correct position after that an insert is placed in the casting or attached to the insert holder/punch, the hand press is operated manually and applies several tonnes of pressure to push the inserts into position.
This process can be repeated several 100 times per hour and u is reliable, repeatable and cost effective.
Inserts can be made from many materials including:
- Cast Iron
Yes, Inserts can be knurled to ensure their fitment to a casting joining the two parts to make a stronger component.
More than one insert can be fitted per cycle, this has many benefits including:
- Improves component integrity.
- Reduces secondary operations.
- Improves component quality which can hold tighter tolerances when casting inserts in to a casting.
