Barrel Making Machinery

The task of the purpose machine: pressing of 200-litre metal barrels.

The equipment was produced to mass 200-litre metal barrels (diameter: 580mm x 80mm). The load-bearing structure consists of 1200mm steel-beams. The cover is made up from hollow section- tin sheet. The barrel, placed in the work area, is pressed by a hydraulically operated- metal sheet. An electrically-operated hydraulic power supply actuates the slave cylinder. The motion of the slave cylinder is controlled by the lower and upper limit switches. Pressing can be carried out only if the door of the work area is closed, it is provided with a safety limit switch as well.
