(Metalshapers): Re: SHOPDOG 16
The SHOPDOG 16 is just being setup for production. It will be
available in early 2005.
The tooling is held in 5/8" square collets top and bottom. The
tooling is completly interchangeable with 5/8" (16mm) Pullmax tooling.
We will have dies available.
The motor is a Baldor 1 HP DC 180Volt supplied by a DC controller with
a single phase 220 volt input. The speed is variable 50 - 2000
strokes per minute. The SHOPDOG is equipped with a foot clutch.
The function of the machine is threefold.
1. The SHOPDOG series was designed to do the work we use Pulmax
machines for. Fixed positive stroke with forming dies. The SHOPDOG 16
does all those functions.
2. In addition we have developed a "Free Head Hammer" attachment. This
will allow for work to be done that is typically done on a Yoder or
Pettingil power hammer. The hammer is about 9lbs so hits with about
half as hard as the Yoder. This is still enogh impact do do a lot of
metal shaping. This attachment will be setup to use the CP pneumatic
hammer dies, 1" shankk, that are readily available.
3 A planishing attachment will also be offerred. This will do the
work ussually done on a air planishing hammer: without the extreme
level of noise.
Pricing is not yet established. Our targets are to keep the machine
Cost structure is not yet determined.
