Moog brings new modular die cushion system to market

19 December, 2018

Moog – designer and manufacturer of high-performance motion control products, solutions and services – has launched its new modular die cushion system to extend the life of deep-drawing dies, improve system reliability and reduce commissioning time for manufacturers. A live display of this new system could be seen during EuroBLECH held from 23 to 26 October in Hannover.


Compact, robust hydraulic system

Moog`s modular die cushion system includes a main cylinder with integrated position measuring technology, accumulators, a hydraulic power unit and a number of manifolds. The system features software libraries, and the control unit’s hardware components provide a compact, robust hydraulic system enabling highly dynamic control.

Moog’s design team integrated the manifold flange of the new system directly to the cylinder, where it is connected to the main hydraulic accumulators by a separate adaptor manifold. The system reduces force overshoots, which can cause damage in a press. The modular die cushion system uses customer-specific force profiles to ensure the highest level of accuracy in the drawing process.

Longer life

“Customers will benefit from our extensive experience in developing motion control technology for presses,” said Sascha Dany, hydraulic systems engineer at Moog Luxembourg. “As a package, the modular die cushion system can save both time and money. Its easy-to-use software enables a longer life for deep-drawing dies, higher system reliability and reduced time required for commissioning the system in the plant.”

Maintenance professionals can easily access the system because of the unique mounting of its main components. The system offers flexible layout options for integrating the manifold, and requires comparatively little piping, which helps customers lower maintenance and piping costs.
