Kontempo-Sleeve is a sleeving process for the upper turret on your Amada punch press, which eliminates the need for replacing the costly upper turret disk.

Over time the upper turret bores will wear and become oversized and egg-shaped. This is a common occurrence, and left untreated will greatly increase tooling costs and dramatically reduce accuracy.

This Sleeving process is accomplished at your site, at your convenience and without removing the upper turret disk on most machines, thus minimizing down time. Down time depends on the amount of stations sleeved, however a complete turret usually takes only two days. Our centering procedure is referred from a point on the turret that concentric to the bore, thus ensuring an Amada OEM tolerance.

TSI’s Sleeving process is a permanent and an economical solution to bore wear. If the need is only a few stations, an outside track, or a complete turret to be refurbished, TSI can help you maintain the desired tolerances you need to stay competitive in your business. Often it requires costly man-hours for deburring and sanding. This will increase the cost per piece beyond the range to be competitive. Our goal is to help you achieve peak performance from your equipment, while minimizing maintenance and production costs.

Sleeving Process


           Sleeving Process

If you know what stations are worn, we can give you a quote right away. If you don’t know the state of your turret you can find out here, how to check you turret.

Each station getting sleeved is thoroughly cleaned, inspected and aligned before the Turret Restoration can begin.

Before

After boring out the damaged stations or the complete turret the Sleeving process continues by cleaning all of the bored stations, getting it ready for the sleeves to be installed.

Cleaned

End result: A TSI Hardened steel Kontempo Sleeve with an Amada OEM tolerance, Fully aligned and ready to punch.

Repaired

 

Checking For Wear

If you want us to do the checking for you, we can arrange for one of our service technicians to come out to your facility and check the punch press for you, for just the cost of the travel. Or let us know where you are located and when we get close to your area, we’ll perform the check at no cost to you.

Worn Area #1

A good sign of a worn turret is visual gauges and by just feeling for rough areas in the station. Both will wear out tooling rapidly. The best test, however is to use a dial indicator to measure the wear as shown below.

Worn Area #2

A good sign of a worn turret is visual gauges and by just feeling for rough areas in the station. Both will wear out tooling rapidly. The best test, however is to use a dial indicator to measure the wear as shown below.

 

 

Worn Area #3

Insert a new tool into the station and on the top of the guide, place the dial indicator as shown and take a reading as you are pushing the tool away form you.

Worn Area #4

In this instance it was zeroed in as it was pushed toward the center of the machine to make the reading easier to read.

Worn Area #5

Then by pulling the tool towards yourself, take the reading and the difference is how off your tolerance is. 

 

Worn Area #6

The Tolerance in this instance is about 0.010” off. We recommend that any station over 0.005” should be sleeved.
