Nov. 20, 2015 – The Kaast Machine Tools PS 85 DP Ironworker offers five workstations for punching, shearing and notching.
“Like a Swiss Army knife, it is completely invaluable in that it is multipurpose,” says the company. The machine has two independent cylinders allowing for dual operation which, according to the company, translates to parallel work on the punch and at a second work station. This includes an electric trigger switch up to 1000 mm for quick workflow of repetitive work. With 90 tons of pressing force and a 10 HP motor, each workstation includes jog-mode for tool and work piece positioning. The PS 85 DP has a throat depth of 19.7 in. to allow for working with a larger size of sheet metal, it adds. It will punch up to 1 1/4-in. diameter by a thickness of 0.78 in. and has a stroke length of 3.2 in.
