SAFEGUARDING THE POINT OF OPERATION

Safety Requirements for Construction, Care and Use

It is important that Dake press users have a clear understanding of their responsibility involving the care and use of their Dake hydraulic press, including point-of-operation safeguards. Dake strongly recommends that Dake press users obtain a copy of the current American National Standard Institute (ANSI) B11.2 standard, for a more complete understanding of their responsibilities.

ANSI B11.2 states the following, relative to point of operation safeguarding:
“Normally, only the employer (press user) can determine the requirements of the press productions system components, including the dies and methods for feeding. Therefore, the employer is ultimately responsible to designate and provide the point-of-operation safeguarding system”.

The standard also discusses additional responsibilities of the employer. Some of the key responsibilities are:

  • The employer is responsible for the safety, use and care of the hydraulic power press production system.
  • The employer is responsible to consider the sources of hazards for all tasks to be implemented on the hydraulic power press production system.
  • The employer is required to eliminate, or control identified hazards in the scope of their work activity.
  • The employer is responsible for the training of personnel, caring for, inspecting, maintaining, and operating hydraulic press production systems to ensure their competence.
  • The employer is responsible to provide and ensure that point-of-operation safeguarding is used, checked, maintained and where applicable, adjusted on ever production operation performed on a press production system.

A complete and current copy of the ANSI B11.2 standard can be obtained by contacting the following:

Step 2: Carefully stand the unit upright. Making sure all components are square to each other, tightenall nuts and bolts securely.

Step 3: Mount the head ram transverse plates. The side with two bars welded to them go inside theframe, with the threaded plate on the bottom. Using 10mm x 120 mm bolts, washers, and nuts,tighten only enough to allow plate to travel.

DAKE F10 Utility Hydraulic Press Instruction Manual - Manuals+ (4)

Step 4:

  • With press standing upright and all bolts tightened install the worktable. Insert two table pins inthe two lowest holes.
  • Take the worktable and tilt it at a sharp angle and insert it in the uprights.
  • NOTE: The gussets welded to the table are at slight angles. The narrowest dimension of these gussets goes down. See drawing below for guidance. (Step 1) Once worktable is in theuprights turn it level and lower down and set it on the table pins. (Step 2)
  • Take care when doing this, a helper would be advised.

Step 5:

  • Locate the cylinder and remove the plastic protective cap on the end of the ram. (If applicable)Carefully screw the cylinder from the top into the head traverse ram plate. Screw this in as tightas possible while keeping the cylinder’s hydraulic hose fitting facing to the right or pump side.
  • NOTE: Cylinder may not be totally tight while keeping the fitting facing this way, but it will not affect the presses operation
  • Using Teflon tape install the gauge to the top of the cylinder facing forward. When gauge and hose fittings is in correct position, install the spanner nut on the bottom of cylinder and snugup.

Operation

Procedure

  • Always use the supplied nose pieces. The flat nose piece will be good for most pressing and flattening operations. The step style nose piece will work well for pressing bearing, bushing and parts that have a hole that the nose piece will fit into. This nose piece will help support or hold the piece during pressing operations.
  • There are two table plates that should always be used as a backing plate during pressing operations. You will find notches in these table plates to allow you to use the press as a straightening press for axles, shafts, etc. and most round stock.
  • When using your press always use the highest table setting to minimize the stroke distance of the ram.

NOTE: Only use supplied table pins. Do not weld or pin table.

  • Once a part is put in the press and is clamped or braced securely, close the pumping unit release valve handle. (Clockwise).
  • Pump the handle to lower the ram. Pump until pressing operation is completed. If you need to maintain pressure leave the valve on the pumping unit closed.
  • When operation is complete, turn the valve counterclockwise to release pressure and raise the ram. Once the ram has been raising just above the work close valve again and repeat operation on the next part. There is no need to raise the ram all the way to the top each time.
  • If pressing application requires a certain tonnage, press until the gauge reads the appropriate tonnage then stop. Release pressure and repeat operation.

NOTE: Never pump the ram down fully and dead head the ram in the cylinder. Only build pressure when using the table plates or a part is being pressed. Failure to do this may cause ram seal damage and leaking.

If the application requires off center pressing, loosen the head ram traverse plate bolts and slide head left or right to the area where pressing is required. You may now proceed with the operation. When head is returned to the center position snug these bolts up to prevent unexpected movement.

How to Add Fluid to Hydraulic Pump:

  1. Retract the ram that is connected to the pump.
  2. Place the pump on a smooth, level surface so that that handle is in the up position.
  3. Remove filler plug (small plug near the top).
  4. Lift the plug end of the pump 3/8 to 3/4 of an inch off the ground to properly fill the reservoir.
  5. Replace the plug to ensure quality sealing.
  6. Reinstall pump on press.
  7. Open the valve and pump continuously to properly bleed the system.

Trouble Shooting

Question: Oil leaking around the ram?
Solution: Secure the ram under pressure for 1 hour. This is a cause of a bad seal.

Question: Ram is jerky or sluggish?
Solution: With the valve open, repeatedly pump the handle to allow air to be released from the lines.

Question: Ram does not return to the starting position at the top of the stroke?
Solution: Open and close the valve multiple times. If no progress has been made, the return spring may have failed.

Question: What should I do if the pump will not build pressure?
Solution: Check and see if the valve is at the completely at the closed position.
Check oil fluid level. If low, add fluid and bleed to maximize efficiency.

Question: The pressure gauge on the press is leaking.
Solution: Apply thread sealer (Teflon Tape) with the flow threads on the gauge. Do not apply the Teflon Tape against the threads, this will not allow the gauge to seal properly.

Question: Leaking oil around the hoses?
Solution: Make sure to check all fittings. Tighten if they are loose, and check for any damage on the hose itself.

Question: The press will not reach the maximum allowable tonnage?
Solution: Check the valve to make sure it is fully in the closed position. You may have to bleed the system to maximize efficiency.

Question: The press will not hold pressure?
Solution: Check the valve and make sure it is in the closed position. Some cases, press will naturally bleed itself. If not, bleed the system.
