Help with Hydroforming Presses specifications:

Type
   Hydroforming:       
   Your choices are...         
   Fluid Cell Hydroforming       Fluid cell hydroforming presses apply a high-pressure fluid, contained by a thin rubber diaphragm or fluid cell, against a rigid mandrel or die to form large, complex shapes. Sheet metal blanks are used as the source material. This processing form allows for severe shape deformation and generally produces strong parts of uniform thickness.  
   Rubber Box Hydroforming       Rubber box hydroforming, sometimes called "trapped rubber box hydroforming," uses metal sheet as its source material. A deep, rigid rubber box is used with a four-post platen press. Rubber box presses can produce multiple simple parts in a single cycle, or can create more complex-surface ("compound contour") parts one-at-a-time. Cycle time is limited by how quickly pre-formed material can be loaded by shop personnel. An unconstrained tray-depth provides an advantage over other hydroforming methods. 
   Sheet Hydroforming (SHF) Press       Sheet Hydroforming Presses (SHF presses) use metal sheet source material, for example, aluminum sheet metal. This press type includes both bladder (fluid barrier) and bladder-less (direct fluid contact with a chamber volume) sheet-metal forming. A work piece is placed onto a draw ring (blank fixture), and then a hydraulic chamber / volume surrounds the work piece. Chamber pressure starts relatively low and then increases to as high as 15,000 psi, forming the finished part around the male punch. Pressure is then released and the hydraulic chamber lifted, completing the part-forming process. 
   Tube Hydroforming (THF) Press       Tube Hydroforming Presses (THF presses) use metal tubing as the source material. Automotive parts, like car exhausts and manifold systems, often take advantage of high-strength, gas-tight, aerodynamic, and complex-contour parts made from this process.

Pressure Specification Pressure is applicable to hydroforming presses.
   Pressure       Pressure is the hydraulic force per unit area exerted by the industrial press upon the piece being worked. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Speed & Stroke Specifications
   Stroke:       Stroke is the ram travel from top dead center (TDC) to bottom dead center (BDC). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Stroke Speed:       Stroke speed is the linear speed of the slide or ram during pressing or ram advancement steps. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Rate:       The number of forming, punching operations, or units produced per time; and usually stated as the number of strokes, hits, cut-outs, cycles or hits per minute that the machine is capable of performing. In a progressive or indexing on complex parts, the total production rate will depend on the number of steps or operations required to fabricate the complete part. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Stations:       The number stations in an indexing, automatic press, such as a turret punch press. The turret holds several different tool sets that rotate into place allowing the punch press to perform a series of operations for the production of complex parts. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Dimensional Specifications
   Sheet Width / Working Depth:       The sheet width (smallest dimension, Y) or working depth from front to back (F to B) that can be punched, formed or converted by the machine. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Die / Shut Height:       In the closed position, shut height is the the distance from the bottom of the punch, or the top of the die to the top of the table or bolster plate. The maximum shut height is equal to the die height. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Sheet / Stock Thickness:       The sheet or web thickness that can be punched, formed or converted. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Sheet / Working Length:       The sheet length (largest dimension, X) or working distance from right to left (R to L) that can be punched, formed or converted by the machine. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Special Features
   Automation / Control:       
   Your choices are...         
   Manual (Footswitch / Pendant / Pushbutton)       The press is controlled manually through an operator interface device such as a footswitch, pendant, or push-button controls. 
   Automatic / Indexing       The press or forming machine automatically loads parts into the system and operates without operator intervention. The machine changes or adjusts tooling and other parameters, such as speed or applied load, in a pre-programmed manner.  
   CNC Control       A CNC controller is used to program and perform a sequence of operations on the press. 
   PLC Controller       A PLC controller is used to program and perform a sequence of operations on the press. 
   Windows® / PC Control       The press or forming machine is controlled or programmed through a PC interface. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary automation or control technology.

   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Load / Press Monitor       Presses have sensors and monitoring systems for detecting the load and thickness of compacted materials. 
   Manufacturing Cell (Loader / Stacker)       Presses are complete manufacturing cells, production lines, or turnkey systems with material handlers, degreasing units, or other sub-systems for fabricating parts from coils, metal sheets, or web materials. Alternatively, these press or stamping systems may have loading, stacking, or destacking features for handling sheets, parts, or materials. 
   Integral Cut-Off / Shear       Machines provide the integral shearing or cut-off of sheet or web materials, or excess scrap material. Examples include a flying shear on a rolling mill machine. 
   Integral Laser Cutter       Presses feature an integral laser-cutting system to provide additional fabrication capabilities. 
   Double / Triple Acting       Presses have two-or-more slides for multiple, independent, parallel movements. Double-acting presses are used in draw forming processes because they provide a way to hold down or clamp the rim of the sheet. There are two types: mechanical and hydraulic. With mechanical double-acting presses, one slide is operated by crankshaft; the outer or blank holder slide, which dwells during the drawing process, is usually operated by a toggle mechanism or cams. Hydraulic double-acting presses have multiple cylinders to drive the different slides.  Triple-acting presses typically have a lower slide mechanism with an upward or opposing motion. 
   Multi-Station (Rotary Turret)       Multi-station presses use rotary tooling or turrets, progressive dies, transfer systems, or other multi-station die sets. Rotary turret punch presses are automatic machines that index the material and select the required tool from the rotary tool holding device or turret, usually by computer control. Depending on the program selected, turret punch presses are used for piercing, blanking and forming workpieces.
