Trimming Tools have evolved over time with the addition of new components and solutions until becoming complete and at times complex tools, which ever more often are no longer restricted to being for just trimming and deburring casts.
Hydraulically actuated radial movements for trimming and cleaning areas not reachable with just the open and closing action of press trimmers are already the norm. Moulds are equipped with many different electric and electronic components such as photocells, electrical limit and proximity switches that can be used for different purposes, such as, for example:
- Activating radial movements.
- Detecting the presence and proper positioning of the cast.
- Assessing the proper repositioning of the cast after extraction of the trimmed piece or still the proper machining of the same piece.
