Next-Gen Cushion Technology Selected for Complex Aerospace Forming

April 1, 2014

When Enginetics Aerospace Corp., Huber Heights, OH, was tasked with forming particularly complex parts, it turned to Hyson, Brecksville, OH, for its Press Solutions servo-controlled cushion. Enginetics fabricates jet-engine and aerospace structural components. It installed the servo cushion on an Aida servo press. While linked directly to the press, the cushion complements servo-press technology by accurately and precisely dialing in the force at a specific position needed for critical forming processes, not possible with conventional equipment.

The user-friendly touchscreen display of the cushion provides ease of use and simple programming. Onboard health monitoring and diagnostics combined with an optional wireless direct-service link provides the user with real-time service and maintenance support from the Hyson Press Solutions Team.

Says Hyson general manager Hank Kelm: “With advanced materials becoming more popular, the cushion provides stampers the added force in addition to flexibility and precise control.”
