How It Works – Cycles Continuously with the Press
Micro Transfer’s ® motion begins as the press opens up. A set of part handling rails is driven in towards the center of the die, then the rails contact and elevate the parts to clear lower tooling. As the press reaches the top of its stroke, the rails move parts forward to the next die station. While the press closes, the Micro Transfer ® lowers parts into their respective die stations and the rails retract. The cycle is completed as the press reaches the bottom of its stroke and the part handling rails return to home. This cycle is continuous and synchronizes to the speed of the press.
Most Micro Transfer ® Systems run between 15 and 30 Strokes Per Minute (SPM). We recommend that you contact us for a full process review if you need to establish a specific SPM.
