Manufacturer and Developer of Die Height Indicators / Special Counting Scales

Reliability and peace of mind for your press machine. The Die Height Indicator by Wako.

A Die Height Indicator with diverse applications

The Wako Seiki Die Height Indicator

Wako seiki Co., Ltd. has developed a die height indicator that can respond to sophisticated machine precision and mold accuracy in recent years.The developed TYPE-D has been able to set up mechanisms in 0.1 mm increments until the upper limit / lower limit switch setting was only a positive number up to now.(4 digit specification · 5 digit specification)
Compatible models,(MTS-1100、MTS-120、MTS-1300、MTS-145、MTS-1500、MTS-2500、MTS-190)


A Die Height Indicator with diverse applications

The Wako Seiki Die Height Indicator

The Wako Seiki Die Height Indicator is mainly used as a piece of equipment in the positioning of metal molds on the press machine. Additionally, it is used in a variety of applications, such as a servomotor, brakemotor, feeder, pressure meter, control motor, counter for back gauge use (vendor, shirring), LED counter for low-light use, feed length counter, counter for grip coefficients, and a thickness display counter. With much anticipation for 2015, we plan on selling this Hybrid Absolute Encoder.


Moving Wako forward to meet continuing global standard

Moving Wako forward to meet continuing global standard

It would not be an exaggeration to say that our products are at war with the vibrations of the press machine.
In particular, for high speed press machines, vibrations occur at extremely high intervals of 300SPM~4000SPM.
Since it is a simple mechanism, in order to keep control, it is necessary for someone to fine tune each part by hand. We can do this specifically because we are a manufacturing company that specializes in press machine counters.
Our acquired experience and know-how is recognized by companies in the industry, and we are trusted for our products' technology, quality, and abilities. As the only company producing the "Die Height Indicator", Wako Seiki provides reliability and peace of mind for your press machine, and is advancing and contributing to the world by manufacturing great products through daily innovations.


About the Die Height Indicator

Figure 1 Press Machine Die Height

What is die height?

Die Height is the distance from the top to the bottom of the slide when the adjustment of the slide is set to the limit at the bottom dead center.

What is shut height?

Shut height is the distance from the top to the bottom of the head surface when the bolster plate is removed from the slide at the bottom dead center.

What is open height?

Open height is the distance from the bottom of the slide to the top of the bolster when the adjustment of the slide is set to the limit at the bottom dead center.

Slide adjustment amount

During metal mold mounting, the connecting rod and slide adjustment screw (connecting screw) adjust the vertical positioning of the slide.
The mounted mold’s range of motion and height is set by the amount of the adjustment.

What is a Die Height Indicator?

The Die Height Indicator is used when these adjustments are made.
The maximum and minimum settings at the time of molding are decided through this device.

(2)Preset

We designate the preset value, set it in-house and deliver.
In this instance, since the preset does not take the highest and lowest structural digits, we designate values excluding these digits. The highest upper preset value is consistent with the value indicated in the chart, and the lowest value comes from subtracting one from the value indicated in the chart.

50 years as a specialized counter producer Furthering know-how and experience

Representative director Masahiro Saito

Wako Seiki Co., Ltd. was established in May, 1963 as a producer and developer of special scale counters and Die Height Indicators for press machines.
Since our establishment, we’ve received patronage from many press makers, both domestic and abroad, and I’d like to express my gratitude.
Presently, we are progressing into digital and electronics in a variety of fields.

Nevertheless, within the specialized environment of press machines, it’s our machines in particular that provide high reliability, for which I am proud.
Wako Seiki is the company that can produce products that endure extreme temperature changes and noise from vibrations and frame ground. Additionally, specifically because we are a company specializing in counters, we can respond to the needs of our clients.
Doing what we can do to help, all of our employees are devoted every day to the further advancement and development of the world’s press makers.
We await your guidance moving forward, and sincerely look forward to your support.
