GL1 Link Motion Series Gap Frame Press


The Stamtec GL1 one-point gap frame press (a.k.a. OBG, OBS, OBI, or C-frame) with link motion drive technology is designed for stamping small parts that require deeper or more complex forming, at high single-stroking rates or in continuous mode, using either blanks or coil stock.

With a link motion press, the slide velocity decreases by up to 40 percent during the working portion of the stroke so the material flows more effectively while the non-working portion of the stroke increases by an offsetting amount to maintain high production rates. The results are better quality parts produced at higher production rates. In addition, the slower speed of the working stroke in the GL1 stamping press reduces die impact, punch penetration, snap-through, noise and vibration, thereby increasing machine and die life.

TONNAGE RANGE: 88-220
DELIVERY TIME: 18-20 weeks

Stamtec presses can be customized to meet a wider range of SPM, stroke, rating point (BDC), bed and other specifications and dimensions.
