Hansford Die Handler Model 1020
The Model 1020 Die Handler has a capacity of 3000 lbs.
The Model 1020 Hansford Die Handler is a portable unit with significant try-out force capability—up to 20 tons. Coupled with this is the high precision, quality workmanship always associated with our products.
The top platen is supported on ground steel trunnions and is rotatable through 360°. It is moved vertically by four precision lead screws driven by alloy bronze nuts supported in precision ball bearings. Levers at each corner lock it rigidly and accurately in the 0° and 180° positions. The open construction of this platen gives maximum access to the top of the die set.
A special gear change dial provides the ultimate in safety and ease of operation. Three positions are provided: “MANUAL,” where movement of the top platen is accomplished by hand crank, “TRY-OUT” which provides tremendous gear reduction to allow a 20 ton force to be exerted between platens by hand crank, and “POWER” where an instantaneously reversible, 1 ~/z horsepower motor, controlled through a switch knob in the dial, raises a 3000 pound load at the rate of 13 inches per minute. A safety switch rod automatically stops the motor at the upper and lower limits of the top platen travel.
With the dial in the “POWER” position, the hand crank shaft is disengaged from the motor drive. With the dial in either the “MANUAL” or “TRY-OUT” position, the “POWER” switch is not operable.
The Hansford Model 1020 Die Handler is a versatile machine tool designed to meet today’s rigid requirements of extreme precision and absolute reliability.
