Retrofits / Modernization


Increase Productivity by Adding or Upgrading A Quick Die Change System!

Improve productivity by shortening die change and setup times!

Add Hydraulic Die Lifters and Die Clampers

Change to die clampers to eliminate manual tightening, and change from manual clampers to automatic traveling clampers.

Die lifters and clampers added to a general-purpose press

Automatic traveling clampers on a general-purpose press

Add a Die Change Cart

Reduce die change times on small and midsize presses by adding a die change cart.

Add Moving Bolsters

  • Upgrade from 1 moving bolster to 2 moving bolsters.
  • Convert from front and rear moving bolsters to cross-linked configurations that can accommodate additional moving bolsters.
  • Shorter bolster change times thanks to improved controls.

From a single front-side moving bolster to....

...a cross-linked moving bolster configuration.

Increase Productivity by Upgrading to a New Coil Feeder Model

Dramatically improve material yield by upgrading to a zigzag feeder.

The bulk of press-forming costs are in the material cost, and you can achieve dramatic cost reductions by improving the material yield.

AIDA offers the zigzag feature as an option on all its feeder series.

Upgrade General-Purpose Press Operation & Control Panels!


  • Contact circuits consisting primarily of relays.


  • Replaced with the latest E-Series controls.


  • (1)Greatly enhances the safety of C1 and C2 Series presses too! Adds clutch & brake circuit monitoring and overrun monitoring, and uses a ground-fault breaker in the control circuit.
  • (2)Contributes to improved reliability and maintainability and reduces downtime. And it is equipped with high-reliability parts and high-vibration resistant devices that are mounted in locations that are easily accessible for maintenance.
  • (3)Improves operability and workability. Uses interlock lamps and easy-to-use pushbuttons.

Greatly Increase the SPM of Existing Robot Lines!

Just replacing your turnover device with a high-speed servo model can increase your production by over 10%!
You can choose between an MT-2S or an MT-3S!


When using an MT-3S with an A-8II(1200 mm stroke) and an NC1-2000(2) press

Current 14.8 spm ( Increase to 16.8 spm = 14% jump in productivity

When using an MT-3S with an NCTHL (1400 mm stroke) and 4 NC1-2000(2) presses

Current 12.8 spm ( Increase to 14.3 spm = 12% jump in productivity

Servo Driven Turnover Device

Servo Transfer

Upgrade from A Mechanical Transfer to A Servo Transfer!

  • You want to upgrade = your annual maintenance costs are rising!
    This will eliminate those costs.
  • You want to boost functionality

Accommodate Product Changes

By converting from 2-D motion to 3-D motion:
・Reduce die costs.
・Enables the easy transfer of parts with complex shapes.
  • Each feed, clamp, and lift stroke is variable.
    Allows the optimal transfer conditions for each product.
  • Enables variable feed and clamp timing adjustments.
    Die interference ranges can be adjusted.

Increase Productivity

  • Select optimal values for the feed, clamp, and lift strokes and their timing.
    Increased speed (SPM).
  • Enables independent operation of the transfer feeder, which makes for easy finger adjustments.
    Reduces setup times.
  • Change to 3-segment feed bars.
    Enables outside setup of the fingers.

Standardize Work and Create Standard Procedures

  • Each stroke and its timing is digitized and can be saved in the job data bank.
    Makes for easy standardization and procedure creation.

Enhance Safety

Switch from a Single Solenoid Valve to a Double Valve for the Clutch and Brake!

Modification Details

  • Switch from a single solenoid valve to a double valve for the clutch and brake.


Marked improvement in safety!
  • The clutch and brake solenoid valve is the most critical safety-related part on a mechanical press, and switching to a double solenoid valve reduces the probability of an injury accident due to a solenoid malfunction to almost zero.
  • With a dual solenoid valve with monitoring, if a solenoid valve actuation malfunction is detected the press start circuit is cut and an indicator lamp comes on, making it easy to diagnose and repair the problem.
Implementation Examples

Double Solenoid Valve without Monitoring

  • Safety is improved even more when it is coupled with an overrun prevention device.

Enhance Safety by Adding Die Blocks (with Safety Plugs)!

Modification Details

Add die blocks (with safety plugs).
  • 1 die block set (including a safety plug) is provided for gap frame presses and 2 sets (standard) are provided for straightside presses, and they are mounted on the bed or on the columns.


Marked improvement in safety!
  • Makes die maintenance and adjustments safer when the die block is inserted between the slide and bolster.
  • Because the die block supports the slide, it prevents major accidents resulting from counterbalance air pressure leaks and brake malfunctions that could cause the slide to drop from its own weight.
  • Removing the safety plug connected to the die block cuts the press operation circuit and prevents inadvertent operation by a 3rd party.
Implementation Examples


  • Lightweight high-load FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) blocks are also available for large presses.

Preventive Maintenance

Upgrade Large Control Panels!


  • Uses relays and obsolete PLCs that have been phased out of production


  • Replaced with the latest PLC control circuit.


  • Welded contacts & malfunctions caused by old relays are reduced, improving reliability and reducing down-time.
  • Using the latest PLC means that spare parts can be quickly delivered, which will reduce downtime.
