A designer and manufacturer of high performance motion control products, solutions, and services – exhibited a range of innovative technology at the Metal Form Trade Fair in Shanghai.

The Metal Form China Trade Fair is China’s largest international trade show for the sheet metal and metal working industry, featuring over 300 exhibitors and attracting more than 25,000 visitors. This year Moog exhibited its 360° Solution, offering electric, hydraulic and hybrid technologies. The Solution deploys a “technology neutral” approach, through which the company helps metal and metal working machine builders make use of technology that helps achieve all of their performance goals.

During what was its first attendance at Metal Form China, Moog launched its new modular die cushion system, which featured as a live display. Moog`s new system includes a main cylinder with integrated position measuring technology, accumulators, a hydraulic power unit and a number of manifolds. The system features software libraries, and the control unit’s hardware components provide a compact, robust hydraulic system enabling highly dynamic control.

Customers will benefit from Moog‘s extensive experience in developing motion control technology for metal presses. As a package, the modular die cushion system can save both time and money. Its easy-to-use software enables a longer life for deep-drawing dies, higher system reliability and reduced time required for commissioning the system in the plant.

Also on display at this year’s show was one of Moog’s other key new products, the Electrohydrostatic Pump Unit (EPU). The EPU is a next-generation, hybrid system designed to combine the advantages of both electrohydraulic and electromechanical technologies. It brings together the reduced consumption of an electrical system, and the power of a highly reliable hydraulic system with easy energy storage for failsafe motion. The unit is available either as a single product, or as an integrated Electrohydrostatic Actuation System (EAS) that combines the EPU with additional components the customer requires.
