Flextool Die Geometry Tools

  • Starting with a standard Flextool its potential extension has almost no limits.
  • Every nozzle which is necessary for spraying the complete surface of the die can be positioned optimally. The combination of right nozzle distance and 90° spraying angle to the surface is one part of highest efficiency.
  • Flextool enables a very high level of media supply - and equally important, provides perfect control. The perfect adaption to the die geometry results in very short spraying cycles - the complete die can be treated without additional movement in ‘one shot’.
  • Even when die geometry tools can be rather big, the lightweight design of Flextool makes dynamic movement of reasonably small manipulators possible.
  • Die geometry tools can be used either with manipulators of the MCT series or DAG 3000 Robots. The FLT 4 to FLT 8 range allows perfect adaption to the DCM-size.
  • FLEXTOOL’s can by utilized with DELTASPEED MQS Technology

Flextool Optimization Parts

  • The AED FLEXTOOL platform is a comprehensive toolbox allowing the adaption of the tool setup to all known process setups.
  • The high level of alignment of the spraying tool and the corresponding die geometry is leading to maximum performance of the cooling and lubricant application process.
  • The FLEXTOOL toolbox is containing numerous parts allowing the perfection of the tool’s spraying pattern.
    − Step one: Based on die geometry data the basic tool setup is created – this already is allowing a close adaption to the die‘s geometry.
    − Step two: Using the various optimization parts, any area of the die can be treated exactly as needed for best performance and efficiency.
  •  All parts can be easily added and adjusted either by the customer or the AED service team.
