07 Jun VICLA® .SUPERIOR – Video: Back gauge with retractable supports
Along with the continuous increase in power and length, the rear mechanisms must keep up the pace.
In this case, the .SUPERIOR 6 m 250 ton comes with a Back5 back gauge characterised by a new larger and thicker rugged crossbeam that still preserves its high positioning speed.
Rack and pinion system with linear guides mounted directly on the frame of the press, a feature common to all .SUPERIOR presses VICLA’s strength points: rear retractable supports mounted to the sides of the back gauges that guide and support the sheet metal until it reaches the contact point, avoiding any positioning errors and eliminating downtimes thanks to their automatic CNC-controlled movement.
They also feature a Teflon coating that facilitates material handling leaving no marks on the pieces.
