Fabricator Or Machine Shop – You Can’t Beat The Economies Of An Airam Press

Fabricators and machine shops kept a conservative outlook on capital investments last year, in the face of uncertainty over taxes and government spending. Aerospace and automotive are two market sectors that continue to generate growth along with improvements in the housing and construction industries. In order to be competitive, companies are looking for ways to boost efficiency. Demands are being placed on machines to produce parts faster and combine multiple processes with automation.

Airam presses, 3 to 300 tons, are uniquely engineered to provide both fabricators and machine shops with an economical workhorse that can accommodate multiple operations ranging from stamping, punching and coining to cutting and forming. Manufacturers don’t have to turn to costly servo presses to gain the advantage of adjustable stroke length and speed.

Our air presses also have the flexibility to be integrated into a roll forming line, used to blank material for short part runs or pre form, punch or cut before final machining.  Let us help you operate leaner and more efficiently while keeping pace with the faster speed of doing business today. We’ll customize a cost-effective, flexible solution that meets your production requirements and won’t strain your budget with high operational costs.

Versatility – A Key Production Tool In 2014

Reshoring efforts and rising labor costs in China mean U.S. fabricators have to be more versatile than ever. Customers looking to carve out leaner profiles are making part orders in the thousands a thing of the past. Small part runs – from one-and-done to 100 or less – produced according to unique specifications on a schedule that can change weekly basis is becoming the new normal.

Airam is helping fabricators meets these requirements by engineering its pneumatic press line with the ability to change stroke length and adjust shut height. The machines, 3 to 300 tons, can accommodate different dies as well as multiple operations ranging from stamping, punching, coining, cutting and compressing. For fabricators, this kind of flexibility means optimizing capital equipment and eliminating the need to invest in additional machines for other processes. The ability to perform a variety of applications on a single press also translates into lower overhead and inventory – a savings that can be passed on to customers.

Adjustable stroke length and speed also allows fabricators to use Airam’s presses for different operations during roll forming processes, eliminating the need for secondary work. The equipment’s small footprint means a single press can be used on multiple roll formers. Are you making a myriad of different parts in small lots? Let us customize a cost-effective, flexible solution that enhances your lean business model while helping you meet customer demand and short delivery requirements.
