Flex 1000 The small cross sectional size of the
Flex 1000 is advantageous because it allows our
customers to run the rails into exceptionally
tight areas, like the heels of the die. This
design also permits earlier entry and exit into
the die when the window is opening or closing,
giving additional die timing windows to work in
and the capability of running at faster speeds.
The FLEX 1000 is capable of transferring up to
300 pounds of parts and tooling and features a
transfer stroke of 0 36. The FLEX 1000 has
eight standard die stations, but may be equipped
with more in certain applications. The overhead
mount design allows easy access to the dies. The
bolster is left open for scrap removal and the
windows of the press are clear for part feeding
equipment. The transfer rails are supported
along the length of the rail rather than the
ends, giving the Flex more rigidity and less
deflection than our competitors. As with all
Flex transfer systems, jog capability (both
forward and reverse) are independent of press
actuation, allowing for cycling without the risk
of die interference.

Flex 3000 The Flex 3000 tri-axis, in press
transfer is identical to our FLEX 5000 transfer,
but was designed with lighter loads in mind.
Equipped with independent electric servo drives
for each motion of lift, clamp and transfer, the
Flex 3000 consists of two modular units, one
located on the front of the press and the other
located on the rear of the press. Atlas
transfers provide the highest production rate
capabilities on the market due to the patented
design feature which puts the lowest inertia on
the transfer axis. This low inertia design
feature provides the capability to accel/decel
the transfer axis faster, and since the transfer
axis is a much longer stroke distance than the
clamp and lift axis, the accel/decel of the
transfer axis is what provides the highest
production rates available.

Flex 5000 The Flex 5000 has the highest payload
capacity of our tri-axis transfers. Capable of
smoothly and precisely transferring up to 1,200
pounds of parts and tooling, due to our fully
programmable transfer path. As with the Flex
3000, the long axis of the two individual units
is split, which makes it possible to have two
separate pitches and adapt to conditions where
the pitch is longer within the first group of
dies in the press and shorter for smaller
dies. The Flex 5000, as with all of our Flex
transfers can be easily retrofitted into existing
transfer presses, or integrated with a new press.
The Atlas tooling rail is smaller and lighter
weight than our competitor's rail which allows
larger blanks and parts to run through the window
of the press. The lack of a drive base on one
end of the press provides a clear access for the
destacking, coil feed and exit conveyance
equipment, along with less floor space
consumption. All Flex functions are guided by
anti-friction, high performance linear bearings
while racks and pinions power the lift and clamp
axis and timing belts drive the transfer axis.

Flex 6000 The newly designed Flex 6000, through
the window transfer has been engineered to manage
the biggest and most difficult applications
effortlessly at top production rates. The Flex
6000 incorporates four independent transfer
modules which are duplicated on each press
column. Each of the four modules have their own
drive train and servo motors which provide for
multiple axis of programmable adjustment and
nearly unlimited flexibility. Shared servo
drives for each individual motion diminishes the
drive train size and eliminates mechanical
linkage and/or drive shafts. This provides
exceptionally smooth part transfer at the highest
strokes per minute, while maintaining control of
the parts. Access to the die is simplified over
our competitors and is accomplished with ease
because the transfer rail is built in three
sections. This unique Atlas feature has been
developed so that the two end sections separate
and retract simultaneously while the center
portion of the rail is locked into position on
the bolster. This not only ensures the safety of
the operators and the equipment, but also
provides accurate positioning of the transfer
rail.

Flex 125 Finger Tooling Universal Rails .
Product Overview Atlas Technologies Universal
Tooling Rail System and FLEX 100/125 Finger
Tooling allows quick and easy changeover of tools
between new die sets. Our modular components are
simple to configure due to the ability to adjust
one axis at a time without disrupting the
position of the other axis. This saves time and
resources by allowing more throughput per press
line. Atlas FLEX Finger Tooling is the strongest
available on the market today, providing joint
strength of up to 400 foot pounds. Our patented
wedge style of swivel clamp holds its position
accurately during high speeds and heavy volumes
of production. In fact, testing has proven that
our tooling holds nearly 100 of its clamping
strength even when it is readjusted and reused,
unlike other tooling brands on the market. Our
customers are going green while saving some
green. Atlas FLEX tooling improves return on
investment and green manufacturing practices due
to the ability to continue to reconfigure and
reuse each modular piece for new in-coming die
sets.
