RotoMetrics Hydra Jack System

RotoMetrics Hydra Jack System fitted to a Daco Solutions rotary die cutter

RotoMetrics Hydra Jack System is a simple to use hydraulic pressure gauging system. Hydra Jacks allow operators to easily monitor die cutting force, and as a result, decrease downtime and increase the operating life of the die.

Daco recommend the use of the RotoMetrics hydra jack system to help reduce setup times and reduce wasteage. If a die plate or solid die has been supplied by RotoMetrics a data sheet is supplied with the die and indicates the correct die pressure to be applied, this removes guess work by the operator and reduces die wear and stresses to the machine components.

Features

  • Supplied with a simple to use cam lock system allowing the jacking screws to slide out of the bridge instead of unscrewing and once the locks are engaged, the pressure can be adjusted and monitored.
  • Detects force directly from the load applied to the die.
  • Large calibrated easy-to-read gauges.

Advantages

  • Load cells and gauges are part of the screws, eliminating the need for wiring or mechanical connections.
  • Indicates immediately any increase in pressure resulting from heat build.
  • Helps protect tooling from the stresses of excess pressure.
  • On-file die pressure testing records, with dies ordered from RotoMetrics.

The RotoMetric Hydra Jack system is retrofittable to most rotary die cutting machines in the Daco Solutions product range.
