HENSEL & BLANK toolOpener®
From 500 kilograms to 50 tons
The definitive solution for safe and economic handling of any sized stamping, forming and injection tools
Our company is specialized in handling stamping, forming and injection tools from 500kg to 50t. We developed the toolOpener®, that has been tried and tested multiple times and comes into operation worldwide by now, to counteract the following problems:
Unsafe handling of tools via crane or forklift with subsequent bad working conditions and high tool costsbecause of cracks or joint flaws
Poor accessibility increases the error rate of maintenance and replacements with the consequence of high reject rates in production
Downtimes because of unnecessary replacement and maintenance works inside the press
We offer the Hensel & Blank toolOpener® as a mobile version for smaller and medium-sized tools, as well as the stationary version – optional in conjunction with tool changing systems. These establish the basis of a safe, ergonomic and efficient tool management. An amortisation period within one year is generally achievable.
From fully automated solutions for the moving and opening of different tool types and sizes to basic semiautomatic facilities – anything is possible. Additively through the application of standard components, the storage costs and downtimes will be reduced. Of course remote diagnosis can be performed online.
The toolOpener® increases productivity
The usual losses of 20% to 30% that appear during installment, rebuilding and repair works can be reduced by 10% by our toolOpener®.
tO 50.0-HS: Stationary tool handling facility to mount stamping and forming tools up to 2.500 x 3.100 x 950 cm and a weight of 50 tons
The extraction levels of tool parts (upper and lower parts) are identical to assure the loading process via tool changeover carriage. Of course loading and unloading per crane is possible as well. To facilitate the opening of tools with precision sliding guides in connection with higher mould weights without getting things stuck, the precision guided lifting boxes are hydraulically engined under postion control.
Safety pegs ensure automotive standards.
Control and visualization through Siemens Touch-Panel
Security-related functions (Buhl-lockings) via PnozMulti-controls (Fa. Pilz)
Saving the relevant tool information (height of the upper part of the tools mounting position) to approach the lifting position automatically
Operating modes: Manual, automatic, step-work – Inclusion of the whole machine control system possible
Buhl-safety pegs for vertical and rotating motion:
For the possibility to lock in every position, 2 x 2 safety-pegs are provided for vertical movements gripping into an oblong hole ridge of both lifting boxes
For rotating movements two safety-pegs are provided, that are able to lock in evey position through a rotating shaft-connected oblong hole disk.
The pegs lock at emergency shutdown, failure in the power supply, control system shutdown and opened safety door.
Security fence with four safety doors implemented. Safety control "PnozMulti".
