Pneumatic Logopress dies employ a pair of dies come together at one 'workspace'. One die typically moves the presser plate while the other automatically inserts, clamps, and aligns the component as it moves the presser plate. Pneumatic Logopress dies handle flat or irregular surfaces, and they're typically used for smaller projects. A 3D printable design of the die is available here.
Ideally, a customer does not have to be a mechanical engineer when it comes to the pressing. Instead, die design and manufacturing should be taken as a team effort. Existing applications (like CAM) can be used to create component designs that may have never had a die before.
Pneumatic dies use a small presser base and a die slide or 'workspace'. The presser base keeps the component from moving, and the presser plate moves the component up and down to grip and hold it.
The design, production, and maintenance of press dies are costly elements of the total production cost of the components. If any component is defective, the entire press can be sent to the vendor for replacement. d2c66b5586
