Ironworker with Five Workstations

The PS 85 DP Ironworker is a versatile piece of equipment. The PS 85 DP has five workstations for punching, shearing and notching. This machine has two independent cylinders allowing for dual operation which translates to parallel work on the punch and at a second workstation. This includes an electric trigger switch up to 1,000 mm for quick workflow of repetitive work. Each workstation includes jog-mode for precise tool and workpiece positioning.

The Punching Station allows for the punching of sheet metal, flat and angle steel at 25 strokes per minute. This punching station also contains a sturdy table with a working height of 1,070 mm (42") for high-quality cutting results, stepless stroke adjustment and an adapter for punches and dies. It can take a punch up to 4.25" in diameter and punch through material up to 3/4" thick.

The Flat Shear has a lower blade with four cutting edges, an upper blade with two cutting edges and a table with angle and length stop. The Angle Shear allows you to easily cut angle profiles at different angles and has an adjustable rear stop. At 90 degrees, the cutting capacity is 150 x 150 x 15 mm (6 x 6 x 0.5"), and at 45 degrees, the cutting capacity is 80 x 8 mm (3.1 x 0.31").

The sheet shearing station has a maximum capacity of 380 mm width x 20 mm thick (15 x 0.75") and 480 mm width x 15 mm thick (18.9 x 0.6"). It also has an angle cutting capacity of 120 x 15 mm (4.75 x 0.6") as well as a blade length of 482 mm (19").

The Steelworker is used for cutting round and square steel and contains a 1,000 mm back gauge. The Notching Station includes a table with stops as well as a rectangular notching tool.

All of these features combined allow the user to perform more than one task at the same time to optimize production with quality results. The PS 85 DP has a throat depth of 505 mm (19.7") to allow for working with a larger size of sheet metal. It will punch up to 1-1/4" diameter by a thickness of 0.78" and has a stroke length of 80 mm (3.2"). The PS 85 DP comes with 90 U.S. tons of pressing force and a 10 HP motor.
