Progression Presswork

The ‘press feed system’ pushes a strip of metal (as it unrolls from a coil) through all of the stations of a progressive stamping tool.

Each station performs one or more operations (folding, cutting, bending, piercing) until a finished part is made. The final station is a cut off operation, which separates the finished part from the carrying web.

The metal strip has to be fed very carefully usually by CNC controls to ensure all the die sections are aligned perfectly.

The whole process is continuous and can produce finished parts within seconds.

Baylis have the capability to produce complex progression parts in a number of gauges and material grades using some of the following progression presses:

  • 300 Ton ‘H’ frame (3 off) W&M progression presses with feed capability up to 800mm wide coil and 3500kg coil capacity,
  • 250 Ton ‘C’ frame Arisa CNC controlled progression press with decoiler and straightener,
  • 200 Ton ‘H’ frame Galli CNC progression press with decoiler and straightener,
  • 160 Ton ‘C’ frame SMV CNC controlled progression press with decoiler and straightener,
  • 110 Ton ‘C’ frame Seyi with decoiler and straightener,
  • 40 - 60 Ton high-speed Bruderer power presses with continuous stroke and speeds of up to 7000 hits per hour.
  • All presses are fitted with Davis decade load monitoring and tool protection devices and are capable of running 0.4mm gauge to 4mm gauge material.
