Compact Crowder for Stamping Applications from PHD
PHD announces the release of its new Series PDK Crowder. The Series PDK Crowder is ruggedly designed to absorb high impact forces and is ideal for pushing sheet metal panels into location for precise positioning. The Series PDK Crowder’s compact size accommodates applications within limited space.
The Series PDK Crowder is available in six stroke lengths (50, 80, 100, 125, 160, & 200 mm) and is powered by an ISO/VDMA cylinder. The cylinder is designed with standard adjustable cushions to reduce shock and a magnetic piston for proximity switches to provide end of stroke signals to the controller. Built-in rod compliance eliminates side loads on the cylinder’s piston rod. The unit’s tool plate, guide bar, and bearings are designed to deflect .06 inch under large loads to protect the crowder from damage if a panel is mis-loaded.
The Series PDK Crowder works well in stamping applications and can be used independently or in conjunction with PHD’s NEW Series PDG Disappearing Gage. Units are shipped in one working day from receipt of order and offer a low cost of ownership.
