GENERAL INFORMATION (Press release)

 

The security screen industry has been quick to take advantage of innovative designs in labour saving machinery produced by Universal Fluid Power.

The latest machine is the Universal Lock Punch Model LP160-04K

The Universal Lock Punch was initially developed from a need to reduce the amount of effort needed to punch a set of holes in security door frames to accommodate the locks.

Existing manually operated punches are cumbersome and require a fair amount of effort to operate. They are also prone to wear.

By re-designing the method of operation we have produced a machine that is easy to install; easy to use; and virtually maintenance free.

The power source is fast, clean, compressed air which produces the force required to punch holes in seconds - with minuscule effort.

The press consists of a pneumatic power cylinder which is coupled to two piercing and punching dies which will make a set of holes to accommodate most standard lock sets.

The first punch (46 x 16mm) is used to make a 160mm long slot in the edge of the door frame by punching four holes in a line.

This slot then allows you to slide the frame over the die plate and operate the second punch (137 x 19mm) for the lock plate holes.

A set of holes for the lock can be punched in about 30 seconds and the press can be operated by anyone after just a few minutes practice.

In addition to the above, the small punch can be used for piercing holes to accommodate support rollers on the bottom rail of the door frame.

The kit comes complete with the Lock Press, a guarded foot valve and all the necessary airline and fittings. All you have to do is mount the unit into a suitable bench, connect the air supply and you are ready to begin.

The machine is designed so that all dangerous parts are fully shrouded during normal operation to avoid personal injury.
