PATEC specialises in the Original Design Manufacturing of high precision mechanical press machines (tonnage ranging from 100 to 1000 tons), robotics transfer, feeder and other ancillary support systems. PATEC also develops, fabricates and tests precision tools in-house, for custom applications and process conversions.
PATEC’s Link Motion Drive technology is available on all PATEC press machines. With our patented eccentric link motion drive, the slide velocity decreases by up to 40% during the working portion of the stroke, so the material flows more effectively. At the same time, this allows the non-working portion of the stroke to increase in velocity, so as to maintain a high production rate.
The result is a better quality part at higher production rates. In addition, slower speed through the working stroke reduces tool impact, snap-through, noise and vibration, thereby increasing machine and tool life.
