What is the AE-NT series?
The AE-NT series was developed as a part of our ongoing mission to provide the widest range of punching solutions. It enhances AC Series. It ensures that parts are produced faster and the cost is reduced.
-. The AE-NT series utilizes an AC servo motor to drive the ram (eliminating the hydraulic power supply and chiller).
-. Electrical consumption is less than one-half of comparable hydraulic machines.
-. The AE-NT series offers significantly faster punching speeds than mechanical turrets.
-. Space-saving design makes the most of valuable floor space.
The AE-NT series turret punch press is packed with a wide variety of standard features to help produce parts faster, easier and more economically.
The AE-NT series uses a single AC servo motor, along with a heavy duty precision ball screw and link assembly, which is mounted in the bridge frame to achieve hit rates of up to 400min-1 on 1" centers (depending on model and stroke length) and up to 900min-1 marking speeds. The drive mechanism features fewer components than any requirements and combined with a shear plate helps to greatly reduce the chance of damage due to overload. The drive has been tested at over 100 milion hits at full tonnage with no failures.
Ecology & reduced power requirements
Despite high hit rates, the AE-NT series requires only a 19kVA power hookup. Average total electrical consumption during punching is less than half of a typical hydraulic machine and standby power requirements are the lowest of any Amada turret punch press. Unlike a hydraulic machine, no fluid change or chiller maintenance is ever required.
Highly rigid frame
Amada is the originator of the bridge frame turret punch press. The precision-welded and stress-relieved frame is made using 40mm thick steel plate to help ensure stable, reliable production, while providing increased tooling, life and reduced punching noise over many years of day-in and day-out production.
The air blow tool blows air and oil mist into the die during punching to prevent slug sticking and pulling. The power vacuum etracts the slug down through the die.
