AccuStrike® Anvil with Dual Adjust Technology

The AccuStrike Anvil allows press operators to adjust blade clearance on press with extreme precision. Controls enable the operator to adjust bearers independently or together for unparalleled control over die strike on various liner thicknesses.

Features:

  • Easy to use dial controls with 0.001mm / 1.0 micron adjustment units
  • Standard total adjustment travel to +0.001"(0.025mm) / -0.004"(0.10mm) – design can provide alternate travel range if desired
  • Allows use of entire web width and center mounting of flexible dies
  • Fully hardened wear surfaces
  • Allows adjustment while the press is running or stopped
  • Fully compatible with RotoMetrics Hydra Jack system
     

Advantages:

  • Unit is maintenance and calibration free
  • Outstanding versatility – interchanges simply and easily with standard press anvils with no modification to the die station or press frame
  • Drop-in installation for quick changeover between die stations
  • Can be used for undercutting applications
  • Requires no modifications of existing die tooling inventories
  • Easy installation with minimal training required
  • Increased die endurance and resulting life-cycle cost reductions

Let RotoMetrics show you how the new AccuStrike Anvil delivers precision blade depth adjustment to the operator while giving you complete flexibility in die station set up.
