On an icy November day in Minnesota, one day before Thanksgiving, EJ Ajax took delivery of an AIDA mode DSF-C1-2000 single point gap frame ServoPro® servo press. This is the second AIDA press that EJ Ajax has installed this month.
The Quickway rigging crew, contracted by EJ Ajax to provide expertise and special equipment, arrived at 7 a.m. and worked until about noon to get the 45,000-pound behemoth in position on a specially-installed concrete slab. In the coming days, a technical crew from AIDA will visit EJ Ajax to connect power, calibrate the press, run tests, and train operators.
Once this press is in full operation, EJ Ajax will be able to deliver some amazing new metalforming capabilities, featured here.
Below are a few photos from the rigging process. More photos and video will be added once the press is in full operation. Click any image to enlarge.
