Online Selection, Configuration of Die-Changing and Positioning Components

July 1, 2018

A new online configuration offering from Roemheld allows users to select and compile roller and ball bars used for die changeout and positioning in presses. The page can be accessed from the company’s website and is optimized for use on smartphones and tablets. Plans call for a phone app of this offering.

Roemheld’s bars designated for use in press T-slots facilitate and accelerate the insertion and positioning of dies. While roller bars allow for linear movement, heavy loads may be shifted by means of ball bars. The company provides hydraulic and spring-action models in six slot widths.

The configurator provides an overview of the company’s offerings of roller and ball bars, and facilitates the order process. Users may send inquiries directly and have dimension drawings for their bar version, including technical data and order numbers, prepared at the touch of a button. In addition, technical data of a bar may be accessed via a backward search based on a given order number. Also, customers can choose between aluminum and steel casings. Requested lengths, ball center distances and required slot depths may be designed individually and entered into the configurator.

Resulting data such as carrying capacity, oil quantity and the maximum possible operating temperature of a bar are summarized in a request breakdown. In addition, users may obtain technical drawings that include all dimensions.
