EVS Metal’s Keene, New Hampshire metal fabrication facility has taken delivery of a state of the art Amada AE 2510NT single AC servo-drive turret punch press. The addition of this machine is the culmination of nearly $500K in equipment and tooling investments EVS Metal has made over the last year in New Hampshire.
The new punch press features the very latest technology that Amada has to offer, with servo-electric driven motors that allow for quicker turnaround on all punching processes, while still offering incredible energy savings. The new punch press is also more compact than traditional hydraulic-driven punches and has a high rate of reliability in comparison.
“Our new turret punch press will greatly improve operational efficiencies,” says EVS-NH GM Keith Tuthill. “In turn, these efficiencies will allow us to provide more reliable, high-volume service to our customers.”
There are a number of other reasons why EVS Metal chose to invest in the AE-NT series. It achieves stable, high-speed processing via reduced slug-pull as well as allowing for high-quality processing. This includes high-speed deburring and marking, as well as slotting operations that remove any overlap marks, eliminating the potential need for remedial work, ultimately helping to keep costs down. The AE 2510NT integrates fabrication processes such as high-speed and downward forming, as well as safety-inch bending, which allows flanges to be processed in-cycle.
Other attractive features of the 2510NT turret punch press include its eco-friendly energy consumption, consuming only 4.5kW of power at its highest run rates. Even its standby power consumption is low — the lowest of all similar Amada machines. It is also highly intelligent, allowing for automated tooling setup, program editing and highly accurate press control solutions to improve functionality and performance.
“The high-speed, high-quality processing made possible with our new AE-NT is unmatched in the industry,” says EVS Metal’s Vice President and Co-Founder, Joe Amico. “When combined with the overall durability, reliability and efficiency of Amada machines, there was no question in my mind that this machine was the best option for our requirements.”
