Trimming tools equipped also with machining units
In past years, trim tools have been developed a lot including different options and components, which led to a more complete equipment, in many cases a complex one. The trimming and deburring of the actual shot are now not the only operations that can be involved. Today, the addition of hydraulic sliders for trimming and cleaning of areas not reachable by means of the simple operation in open/close direction is now widely considered as basic. Trim tools are well equipped with other electrical and electronic components, such as photocells, limit switches and proximity.
Thanks to these devices, a proper analysis of the trimming cycle is now possible. Thereby, equipment needs to be complete not only with hydraulic and pneumatic system, but also with electrical systems.
