A hydraulic device charged with dry nitrogen and acts to control the hydraulic shock to a system.
The pressurized gas which is placed in an accumulator. The accumulator must be completely drained of hydraulic pressure before pre-charging with dry nitrogen.
The precision ground plate that is installed above the mold plate that allows the air to escape from the mold plate through several small holes.
A tube that connects the top of the mold cover to the hopper front through which excess product is returned to the hopper.
A devise that restricts the flow of hydraulic fluid in order to slow the movement of a hydraulic actuator at the end of its stroke.
Hydraulic and pneumatic valves that control the direction of flow in the system.
A heating devise used to warm the knockout cup in order to aid in the release of the formed product from the knockout cup.
Movable part of the machine that can be raised and lowered to permit access to the mold plate for installation and replacement. The knockout assembly is attached to the mold cover.
A hydraulic cylinder which provides the reciprocal motion to the mold plate. This cylinder has internal cushions on both ends that are non-adjustable.
The rotation of a motor (clockwise or counter-clockwise) can be determined by looking at the drive end of the motor.
Lockout valves exhaust downstream pressure and can be locked in the shut-off position using a padlock.
An electrical switch that is able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact.
The part under the hopper where product is forced by the plunger to move it to the fill plate.
Hydraulic and pneumatic valves used to protect a system from high pressure or to limit the amount of pressure available to a component.
The neon lights inside the connectors that attach the hydraulic directional valve solenoids to the electrical system and show when power is activated to the solenoid.
