We have developed our FCC OT-LV 2016.26. series aerial cam units specifically for the requirements of small and medium-sized press tools. They are true winners in their class thanks to market-leading working and retraction forces combined with compact dimensions. The glide pairing of this cam unit series is performed in sintered/bronze sliding elements against a non-hardened cast surface. The wear elements of the guides are catalog items from our Standard Parts product range and offer excellent availability. The gas springs are accessible from the rear of the cam unit in all cam slide units in this series and can be disassembled within the tool. These gas springs with the advanced safety features used in our cam units, provide the best possible safety standards according to the Pressure Equipment Directive. The cam slide units in this series meet the requirements of the BAK specifications, and are available from stock in the event of a crash. These cam units can be ordered ex works with a machined work surface according to your data set upon request. This machining meets the highest requirements of modern toolmaking processes.

Design features:

  • Prism guide against driver / box guide against base
  • Cast sliding surfaces (unhardened) / bronze with solid lubricant or sinter
  • Gas spring with safety features 
  • The gas spring can be removed within the tool (without disassembling the cam unit).
  • Mechanical retraction
  • Structural damper
  • Cam unit in the tool can be removed towards the rear

Aerial cam units in the FCC OT-LV 2016.26 series are available in twelve widths as standard from 65mm to 400mm, each in angle variants from 0-75° in 5° increments. Beginning from a width of 185mm, the cam slide units in this series are equipped with plate pre-acceleration to improve the dynamic response. Further widths and angles, as well as further customer-specific designs are available on request.
