Bosch Rexroth Launches Innovative Range of Press Blocks

Bosch Rexroth Launches Innovative Range of Press Blocks

Bosch Rexroth has extended its range of hydraulic press blocks with a new series specifically aimed at machine builders supplying press machines to a wide range of metal and other plastic / composite forming applications.

The type M modular press blocks will make it significantly easier for machine builders to achieve EN 693, EN 289 and ISO13849. The press blocks are ideal for upper rams on downstroking presses and have been specifically designed for both new build presses and retrofit on existing machinery.

The new range includes a new safety feature, namely hydraulic circuit configuration with monitored directional control valves. Flexibility has also been prioritised with a primary module providing free fall with proportional valve tonnage control. Additional modules can be fitted for extra press cylinders which will allow other functions such as regenerative flow, high and low pressure control and load sensing.

The Rexroth type M modular press blocks offer a flow rate of up to 1300lpm and system pressure of up to 350 bar. The range compliments the existing Rexroth range (types P, B, L and S) which can handle flow rates up to 14000lpm.

Alan Simpson, specialist sales manager for presses and production machinery at Bosch Rexroth, commented: “The type M modular press blocks have been designed with flexibility in mind, making them suitable for a wide range of presses in numerous industry sectors. The new press blocks meet the critical industry standards and regulations which will make press block specification much easier for machine builders.”
