WARNING USE SAFETY GEAR AT ALL TIMES – SYSTEM MAY EJECT HYDRAULIC FLUID AT ANY TIME. Read this complete User Guide and study Drawings 201, 201PD, CLAMPSAFE-1, CLAMPSAFE-3 and-392 before proceeding. Hydraulic plumbing on press/machine depends on the type of clamps used, hydraulic clamping safety employed and other devices, which are connected to the system. Determination of application Safety and Safe Operation is the user’s responsibility.

pfa-inc.com MODEL-201 | HYDRAULIC CLAMP | PAGE 3


INSTALLATION 1. Place T-Nut in T-Slot and make sure that the T-Nut is sized correctly. 2. Verify that the stud length is correct. 3. Rotate the stud so that the proper die grip height is achieved. The stud must be fully engaged in the clamp.

Study Drawing 201 carefully. Make sure that the die grip height for the various dies are within the dimensions noted on Drawing 201.

4. Study Drawing CLAMPSAFE-1 and CLAMPSAFE-3. They show how hydraulic circuits can be configured. Select the optimum clamping safety for the application.

Note: Double Acting valves, also known as the“Pilot Circuit” option, are designated by PC in the Pump Module part number. Example: 130S-DL-PC2. The pilot circuit is needed for each zone to release the check for clamp opening, when check valves are used.

5. Place the clamp in the T-Slot and connect hydraulic hose. Note that the hydraulic hose will prevent the clamp from rotating. (If the clamp is rotated then the clamping height is changed).

CAUTION: Use a hydraulic pump with a hydraulic pressure sensor to power the clamps. Connect the pressure sensor to press controls to stop the press in the event of hydraulic pressure loss.

OPERATION Note: Integrate the following steps into your die exchange procedure. 1. TO INSTALL DIE. Activate Lift of Die Lifters (if any), Place die in press, and lower die lifters (if any). 2. Move bolster mounted clamps to proper clamping position and activate the proper hydraulic circuit to clamp lower clamps. 3. Make required adjustments and move slide down to upper die. 4. Move ram mounted clamps to proper clamping position and activate the proper hydraulic circuit to clamp upper clamps. 5. Ensure all clamps secure and do not exceed the piston travel for proper clamping preload (Note 10 on clamp drawing). 6. Lock controls to clamps to prevent unclamping. 7. TO REMOVE DIE, move slide to proper down position for die exchange. 8. Unlock controls and release hydraulic pressure to all clamps by turning off hydraulic pressure (valves to release). 9. Move clamps away from die. 10. Jog ram up. 11. Activate die lifters, if any. 12. Perform die exchange.

pfa-inc.com CAUTION: Use only dies with U slots, “ears” or pockets, i.e., clamping surfaces which support the clamp on opposite sides of the stud. Make sure that the clamp surface thickness/die grip height is within the recommended range/adjustment of the clamp (See Drawing 201).

MODEL-201 | HYDRAULIC CLAMP | PAGE 4


MAINTENANCE 1. Periodically check hoses for signs of wear. 2. Replace hoses if necessary. 3. Examine clamp for damage. 4. Chase any damaged threads if necessary. 5. Check for hydraulic leaks. Tighten fittings or replace hoses as necessary. 6. See Seal Replacement Procedure, if needed. 7. If a pipe thread fitting is removed, apply new thread tape before reassembling fitting. 8. If stud is replaced, use grade B7 threaded Rod or Forged High Strength Alloy Steel with Minimum Tensile strength 125,000 psi or grade 8 or similar. PFA replacement parts are recommended for proper operation. 9. If T-nut is replaced make sure that it is securely fastened to the stud. Apply permanent thread locking compound IAW manufacturer’s recommendations and/or pin T-nut securely in place, if applicable.

SEAL REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE 1. Review Drawing 201PD. Note position of all components. 2. If seals are to be replaced obtain the two seals, retaining ring and lubricant specified on drawing 201PD. 3. If Connector, P/N 1804-1 is removed, apply teflon thread tape before re-installation. Apply proper pipe fitting torque. 4. To disassemble clamp start by removing P/N 4096 retaining ring. 5. Separate the piston from the housing. Place the clamp housing in a soft jaws fuse and pull the piston out. (Threading a stud into the piston and pulling is acceptable). 6. Remove spring retainer, spring guide and spring as shown in drawing 201PD. 7. Remove the two seals and discard. 8. Clean parts if required. 9. Apply magna-lube in seal (O’ring) grooves and on the seals. 10. Carefully install seals on piston as shown Page 2 of drawing 201PD. The seals must be oriented as shown. 11. Carefully insert piston into clamp housing. Be careful to avoid seal damage. 12. Install spring guide, springs and spring retainer as shown in drawing 201PD. 13. Install new retaining ring. Make sure that the retaining ring is fully seated in groove. 14. Apply hydraulic pressure and check for leaks.

1. USE THE MODEL-392 HYDRAULIC CHECK VALVE TO AUGMENT HYDRAULIC CLAMPING SAFETY IN QDC AND QMC APPLICATIONS. A PILOT CIRCUIT MUST BE PRESSURIZED IN ORDER TO OPEN THE VALVE. THEREFORE, A CLAMP CHECKED BY THE VALVE CAN NOT OPEN UNTIL THE PILOT CIRCUIT ALLOWS FLUID TO ESCAPE TO PUMP RESERVOIR.

2. A HYDRAULIC PUMP MUST PROVIDE CONTSTANT PRESSURE TO THE CLAMPS WHEN THEY ARE IN USE. (ANY OF THE PFA HYDRAULIC POWER AND CONTROL MODULES MAY BE USED.) THE CHECK VALVE MUST NOT BE USED TO RETAIN HYDRAULIC PRESSURE WITHOUT SUCH HYDRAULIC POWER SOURCE BEING CONNECTED.

3. IF HYDRAULIC HOSE FROM THE CHECK VALVE TO CLAMP 'A' BREAKS THEN CLAMP 'A' WILL OPEN. OTHER CLAMPS WILL NOT BE AFFECTED. IF THE MAIN HYDRAULIC LINE BETWEEN THE PUMP AND THE CHECK VALVES BREAKS THEN ALL CLAMPS WILL REMAIN CLOSED.

4. USE CHECK VALVE IN CONJUNCTION WITH A PRESSURE SWITCH TIED TO PRESS/MACHINE E-STOP TO STOP STAMPING/MOLDING IN THE EVENT OF HYDRAULIC PRESSURE LOSS.
