Press Slide Replacement Wear Strips – 140 Ton 2 Point Gear Eccentric Press (Bliss Welded Products)

Posted on Friday, January 15th, 2010 By admin

Slide/Ram Removal (Bliss Welded Products Press).

Our client required the replacement of synthetic wear strips and machining of steel gibs for their 140 Ton 2 Point Gear Eccentric Press, as guiding and alignment to slide / ram to bolster was excessive causing end product issues. Revro personnel removed the slide/ram using overhead crane and chain blocks.

Work undertaken in Revro workshop

  • Removal of the old wear strips and replace with new synthetic wear strips which are oil filled (self lubricating) and can run at zero clearance.
  • Removed, machined and replaced existing steel gibs
  • Checked all working components including slide adjustment mechanism on the slide / ram
  • Assembled at Revro works for transport

Installed on Site

The slide was re-installed on site, clearances set between wear strips and gibs. Parallelism slide to bed/bolster to within 0.002″ (0.05mm).

Machine test run, all tested and machine put back into production.
