  1. 1. STAMTEC, INC. • 931-393-5050 4160 Hillsboro Hwy • Manchester, TN 37355 www.stamtec.com How to Drain & Fill Clutch Fluid on Your Stamtec Metal Stamping Press
  2. 2. STAMTEC, INC. • 931-393-5050 • 4160 Hillsboro Hwy • Manchester, TN 37355 • www.stamtec.com OVERVIEW Although it may not get the same level of attention given to the flywheel or die, the clutch on your mechanical stamping press is an equally important component. The stopping time of the clutch and accompanying brake is a crucial factor both in determining press speed and in ensuring the safety of the operator and die. The clutch’s critical role in the performance of your stamping press requires regular and careful maintenance, including replacing the clutch fluid. How to Drain & Fill Clutch Fluid

STAMTEC, INC. • 931-393-5050 • 4160 Hillsboro Hwy • Manchester, TN 37355 • www.stamtec.com PREP How to Drain & Fill Clutch Fluid For the purposes of this example, we’ll use our OCP Series press, but the same concepts apply to any Stamtec mechanical press. The press should be powered down, and the air disconnected. You should also be sure to follow all appropriate safety procedures. To begin, you’ll need a 10 mm Allen wrench as well as a drain pan placed in the bottom of the flywheel area.

You’ll want the flywheel to be positioned as it is in this photo, with the sight glass (1.) to the right, with two horizontal marks on each side. In this position, there will be two drain plugs: one at the top (2.) and another at the bottom. How to Drain & Fill Clutch Fluid

Rotate the flywheel counterclockwise until the top plug hole is at the bottom; fluid will begin pouring out. Allow the flywheel to completely drain. Rotate the flywheel back to the top position so that the lines on either side of the sight glass are perfectly horizontal. Refill with the proper lubrication until the fluid is level with the two horizontal marks. Do not overfill or underfill. Replace the plug and tighten securely; remove the drain pan.

STAMTEC, INC. • 931-393-5050 • 4160 Hillsboro Hwy • Manchester, TN 37355 • www.stamtec.com MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE How to Drain & Fill Clutch Fluid We recommend draining and refilling the clutch once annually for every shift that the stamping press is run per day. You would replace the clutch fluid once a year on a press that runs for one shift each day. On a press that runs three shifts per day, we recommend replacing the clutch fluid three times per year. You can find this information on the outside of your press, tagged next to the specifications. The instructions are also in your press manual.
