Hydraulic Ironworker Machine has 5 working stations for flat bar cutting, profile steel cutting, holes punching and notching. It widely used in Shipyard, Electric, Bridge, Automobile, Hoisting & Transportation, Metal Construction and other machinery factories, etc.

Ironworker Machine Punching Station:

The design for the large punch bed area is to give a very wide range of punching applications; with the available optional tooling-large holes of any shape up to diameter/square as shown in the capacity chard can be punched; or in the overhang position, with the block removed,flanges of channel or joist can be punched.

Additional tooling in this versatile work station can provide lending, corner notching tube notching, and general die-set work.

Angle Steel Cutting Station:

This hydraulic ironworker machine working station provides large capacity angle cutting at 90 degrees and a lighter angle cutting at 45 degrees.

To cut the angle section, place the material though the hold down into the cutting area, adjust the support screw to the material but leave sufficient clearance to enable the section to be fed on for progressive cutting.

To miter cut at 45 degrees:

  1. Place the other end into the blade using the higher support, position, and trim off the end of the section whilst maintaining 45 degrees to the vertical position.
  2. Place another end into the blade using the left-hand support position, trim section to length whilst maintaining 45 degrees to face of machine position.

To achieve other angles of cut between 45 degrees and 90 degrees, first cut the angle section to length and then trim the flange to the required angle in the shear station.

The slot in the shear hold-down allows angle sections to be positioned for the left hand on right-hand trimming, ensure hold down is set for relevant thickness. Each cutting blade has four cutting edges and is retained by simple fixing screws.

DO NOT re-sharpen these blades, after turning four times replace with new blades.

Profile Steel Cutting Station

This aperture-round and square sections, unequal angle, channel, joist, etc.can crop A variety of sections

Blades for round and square section cropping are fitted as standard equipment and have apertures of varying sizes. The smallest aperture should be chosen, which will accept the material, thus ensuring a complete and well supported cut.

To change the blades, the material support must be removed. Release the four screws securing the table clamps, remove blade clamps then withdraw the blades.

It will be noticed that the arm blade is smaller than the body blade.

This safeguards incorrect assembly when inserted carrier blades are used. Also, notice the safety peg, there is a safety slot in the arm blade to prevent incorrect positioning.

Ensure arm blade installed in shear arm properly. Position body blade in frame firmly pushed against the arm blade.

Secure blade clamp to the frame.

Tighten the four screws, then release each one 0, 2 of a turn.

  1. Never remove screw fitted as safety peg in the arm blade milled recess.
  2. In the case of worn solid blades,must fit new blades.
  3. DO NOT attempt to regrind faces; this makes blades undersize for secure fitting.
  4. In the case of worn insert blades, you can grind new inserts according to the sample of blade.
  5. When fitting new blades reverse the removal procedure. Please mark the right hand and left a hand on the blade clamps to ensure replace them correctly.
  6. To cut sections place the material through the hold down into the cutting area, adjust the hold down screw (if fitted) to achieve square cut.

Profile Steel Cutting Station

Flat bar Cutting Station

The shearing unit has a simple robust hold-down which is adjustable to any thickness of material within the cutting capacity of the hydraulic ironworker machine.

A shear feed table with adjustable guards allows feeding the materials accurately. The guide can adjust to allow miter cutting up to 45 degrees for flat bars or to trim the flanges of angle sections previously cut at the angle cutting station.

The standard shear blades permit the bottom blade to turn four times giving new cutting edges,whilst the top blade must grind to sharpen the cutting edge. These blades give minimum distortion from full capacity down to as light as 2mm thickness.

Parallel top blades can cut narrow bar widths or where the flatness of cut is not so important.

When the shear blades require sharpening, grind only on the cutting faces-Max. 0.80mm, after grinding the blades must adjust to clearance of 0.10mm. Adjusting screws to reset the shear blades, the adjusting screws positioned around blade fixing screws, accessible when shear table removed. Even clearance between top and bottom blades is important along the entire blade length and care to ensure that, the bottom blades are in a vertical plane, parallel to the top blade.

Notching Station for Hydraulic Ironworker Machine

The hydraulic ironworker machine notching station has a rectangular punch as standard fitting with a notch table complete with adjustable side and backstops, which allow repetitive material positioning.

Vee notch tooling can fit at this work station, or alternatively units can notch narrow widths of rectangular or vee shapes; units also available for bar end shaping.
