Microtrol Engineering was contracted to retrofit a Cincinnati Deep Draw press for Beachcraft Aircraft. This retrofit add several new features to the machine such as programmable gain positions by using a variable air regulator in tandem with a linear position sensor. This allowed the deep draw press to be able to set the forming gain without adjusting several switch positions in the lower box. The new control system allowed the program to be stored and retrieved when the job returned thus reducing the operator setup time. Another feature added to the press was a VFD drive to control the start of the main pump and also throttle down the rpm when the press was idling. This saved energy and wear on the main pumps.
