The HRB ATC Series is equipped with AMADA’s patented Automatic Tool Changer—making it the ideal solution for variable lot sizes, the seamless introduction of rush jobs, and complex tool layouts. The ATC will enable you to achieve even the most complex tool setups in 4 minutes or less. The HRB 1003/2204 ATC Series is manufactured at the Carolina Manufacturing Center in High Point, NC. Customizable features include:
Each new ABB robot in Metal-Era’s press brake cells features a 155-kg payload—more than enough strength to handle the intricate end-of-arm tooling and steadily place a 12-ft. fascia part into the press brake. And, a 2.85-m reach allows access to all points of the cell where the robot picks and places the part, before, during and after the press brake’s bending operations.
The PT handles deburring, rounding, descaling and surface grinding of thin sheets and heavy plates. Up to 5 grinding stations allow for all machining variations. A CBF station can be installed for a perfect surface finish. The STC bolt grinding beam is available especially for flame‐cut and plasma‐cut heavy plates.
What is the state of your hand-held gas-metal-arc-welding (GMAW) operations? Are you in a country frame of mind―if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it―or feeling more like a test case for Newton’s first law of motion? These days, most of us feel like a body in motion that has been acted upon by another force, such as supply-chain disruptions, shortage of skilled welders or trying to maintain delivery schedules even though an entire department had to isolate because someone tested COVID-19-positive.
On the other hand, even if it “ain’t broke,” almost every fabricator could use some improvements. In fact, the average hand-held GMAW operation easily can increase productivity by 10 to 50 percent.
Cut 3D parts after they’re formed. Bent tubes, hydroformed components, tubular assemblies, deep drawn parts, flat or stamped plates can be trimmed and cut with efficiency and excellent cut quality every time. The LT-Free replaces traditional machining operations and allows you to get the finished part in a single work cycle
Kalamazoo Machine Tool model H310 U-V bandsaw comes with a
variable-speed motor, from 60 to 360 ft./min., to deliver sawing
flexibility across a range of metallic materials. The gravity-feed
bandsaw is capable of mitering 60 deg. to the right, and its Autocut
feature ensures that each cut feeds at exactly at the same rate,
eliminating the need to open and close the valve on each cut.
Metal fabricator Sharpe Products, New Berlin, WI, announced plans to add to its stable of machines with an eighth Unison bender. The 80-mm-capacity electric CNC bending machine will help to increase production capacity for the firm’s customers in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries.
Carlsen Precision Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Rome, GA, soon
will take delivery of a new coil-fed laser-blanking line from Danobat Group Sheet Metal, the first of its kind installed in the United States. The system includes Danobat’s X-Gap technology, a unique solution enabling automatic separation of parts and scrap inside the machine, said to optimize production and facilitate automatic part stacking.
When hollow-metal-door manufacturer Concept Frames sought to minimize—or practically eliminate—scrap from its fabrication process, director of operations Daniel Gibbs knew that there had to be a better solution than nibbling nested parts from sheets on its pair of CNC turret punch presses. Taking in 48-in.-wide blanks from its service center and cutting 12-in.-wide strips using a 3⁄16-in.-wide nibbling tool led to a lot of sheet metal scrap, Gibbs explains, noting that the 12-in. material is used to fabricate the company’s most popular door jambs.
Rather than lose 3⁄16 in. of material with every part or leave tabs between part edges to hold the parts in the sheet, Gibbs opted for a specialized punching tool from Wilson Tool: the Rolling Pincher, part of the Wilson Wheel tool family.
T. J. Snow Company, Chattanooga, TN, now offers a calibration and certification program for resistance-welding equipment, building on its 58 years of providing specialized service and repairs. The company will completely and thoroughly evaluate the equipment, regardless of brand or type, checking the resistance of the machine’s secondary loop and the consistent delivery of welding force and current.
