The System 4000
A Compact Stamping Press Control With Brake/Motion Monitor
The System 4000 is designed to meet size and cost requirements for smaller size presses
while improving press performance, reliability and safety for all size presses.
8.) To eliminate the need for a chain brake switch and helps protect the die from damage due to jam-ups. The system will instantly shut off the clutch/brake outputs if the monitor detects a slow down to
below eight strokes per minute.
1.) To meet or exceed safety requirements of OSHA as specified in CFR 29 Part 1910.212 and .217 sub part 0. with dual channel CMOS circuitry.
2.) For solid state circuitry with low current, highly reliable CMOS type devices with filtering circuits on all inputs.
3.) To provide nine (9) different modes of operation: eight (8) by key switches from front panel.
4.) For extremely easy installation and operation. All wire lead terminals are
labeled as to their connection. All terminal blocks are quick disconnect.
5.) For simple and quick malfunction diagnosis and repair. The new "D" version Main Control Board (June 2000) includes status LEDs on all inputs and outputs.
6.) With built in electronic cams and a full 360 degree brake/ motion monitor. All holding cam settings adjustable from within the cabinet with thumbwheel
switches in 1-degree increments. The pulse generator is set once at installation and left alone. Speed changes do not affect the generator.
7.) To fit in a Nema 12 cabinet 12" wide x 14" high x 6" deep, yet provide room for a production counter, motor control station, system function indicators, brake/motion monitor test button, and more.
9.) With auxiliary inputs: Front guard or light screen, footswitch, auxiliary ram stop, air pressure switch, motor control, and single operator station. The new "D" version Main Control Board (June 2000) includes auxiliary
PAUSE* and continuous Topstop inputs
(interchangeable with earlier versions).
10.) Multiple Operator Stations and Front/Rear Light Screen inputs available (upgradeable).
11.) Auxiliary cams available (electronically adjustable by thumbwheel switches inside cabinet).
12.) Field switchable MINIMUM SAFE DISTANCE or STOP TIME readout available on front panel.
13.) Crank position readout available on front panel.
14.) Production counter available on front panel (automatically bypassed in INCH mode).
15.) With 6, 12, or 18 channel Die Monitoring (with or without front panel
16.) Bearing temperature sensor indication and individual front panel Fault
17.) For many more options including custom designed, front panel
The added PAUSE input on the "D" and "E" version 4000
Main Control Boards enhances and simplifies automated operations by providing an
easy method of temporarily "pausing" or suspending the press cycle
until the input is again opened, whereas the cycle will then resume or start
(providing any stop signal has not been previously initiated). Typical uses are
on plastic forming presses, long servo feed lengths, and multiple stamping press
lines utilizing a number of presses linked (interfaced) together controlled by one
