Mechanical Press

11/19/2017 11:52 AM

We have a 20 Tone C-Frame Mechanical Power Press. We shall be using it for making blanks from 2mm ms sheet. the press is procured from a manufacturer from another part of the country a local brand. he has no literature to provide with it.

do any one have any literature for similar press - Operation / maintenance / set up etc? basics and do's and do-not's .I want to understand what should be best stroke length (it has adjustable stroke length)

Thanks in advance in anticipation

Ask the person who sold you this contraption. The forum knows nothing about the press you bought.

Go here:

Images for 20 Tone C-Frame Mechanical Power Press

Find a press that looks like yours and then get instructions on the web.

I'd never buy something like this without an operator's manual, at least.

Or, send round trip, first class plane fare to me and I'll come and set it up for you, for $300.00 USD per hour.

Lyn: That last part sounds like a brazzen attempt to sequester filthy lucre, although it might cost that for you to be in India.

What unit of force is Tone? Ton (2000 lb.)? Tonne (non-preferred SI unit for 1000 Kg)? What frequency is this tone?

Your link certainly contains many images. I wish the OP good luck with that.

Why not just have the OP write off to the local (in country) people that made this, and be done with it?

<...manufacturer...has no literature to provide with it...> That's nonsense, because a simple telephone call to the manufacturer will sort that one out.

Anyway, without the name of the manufacturer, which has seemingly been withheld from the forum for no stated reasoning, how on earth is any subscriber to this forum supposed to know for which <...20 Tone C-Frame Mechanical Power Press...> such literature is to be uncovered and dispatched (rhetorical question - NNTR)? Generally speaking, history suggests this forum does not respond well to games of 20 Questions.

You need the brand and model number to look up the distributor/manufacturer to obtain an operator's manual...perhaps even a training video....

Solar, is it possible that they may use the videos you provide as an impromptu instructions manual and hurt themselves ?

Best to contact the original manufacturer for a manual, this is not the sort of equipment you want to operate, adjust or perform maintenance on without a proper manual due to its dangerous nature.

Similar press literature may differ in key areas to your press potentially leading to dangerous hazards (especially around safety interlocking and press setup).

this is C-Frame Mechanical Power Press Model No. :RCP–20, from Rajesh Machines Rajkot.

I am not able to pest either image or pdf file he has sent to us however its web site is "www.rajeshmachines.com"

The information available at the web site is only technical spec. and not an o and m.

We shall be getting a video form rajesh machines with the machine which is yet to arrive. Since this is a very general machine i requested to forum members for literature of similar machine to study in advance.

If any co member can easily help it is appreciated. Thanks

If the required information for the specific machine is now on its way, then it would appear the problem is solved.

It is commonplace for the Operation and Maintenance Manual to arrive with, or before, the equipment to which it relates. From this distance,the problem appears to be one either in the purchasing office or the maintenance office, into which areas improvements can be made that would prevent recurrence.

I agree with P W Slack.

May I make a suggestion ?

Hire someone who is familiar with this type of equipment. The person you hire can set up your press, can adjust, lubricate and repair this device, moreover, if there is an issue with the machine during it's operation, then an experienced technician can get it back into operation quickly, thus saving your company extended downtime.
