MCX-S2 Series

AIDA MCX-S2 Series


Press capacities range
from 4000 kN to 8000 kN

MCX-S2 are straightside frame, tie rod construction presses. Each frame component is designed and verifi ed with FEM systems and manufactured to reduce deflection under load below 0,1 mm/m. All structural components are made of quality-controlled steel plates, thermally stress-relieved after welding. Reduced frame deflection and elongation enables higher precision metal stamping.

The MCX-S2 presses includes a high-performance air-friction combination clutch and brake and a quill mounted flywheel with optional medium or high energy drive. Configurations include single or double eccentric gear drive, a wide variety of stroke length and die height choices as well as zero clearance roller-type slide guides.

  • Designed to specifically serve progressive and transfer die applications and associated off-center loading.
  • High rigidity frame, tie-rod construction, counter-rotating gears, roller guides.
  • Self-contained counter-balance cylinders that reduces packing wear which results in lower maintenance and elimination of air leaks. Air surge tanks not needed.
  • 8-Point roller guiding of the slide.
  • Equipped with AIDA Hydraulic Overload Protection (HOLP), the AIDA’s high flow rate hydraulic overload protection system featuring the fastest response time available on the market.
