Generous Working Area and Good Accessibility

Generous Working Area and Good Accessibility

  • Six-axis KUKA robot mounted to a portal crossbeam, moving over a seventh linear robot axis transversely to the workpiece
  • Material positioning via the 8th robot axis
Flexibility in Production

Flexibility in Production

  • Universally-implementable autogenous gas cutting procedure (standard)
  • In addition to autogenous gas cutting, a high-performance plasma cutting machine can optionally be used
  • The autogenous gas cutter can be replaced by a plasma cutting machine through simple modification
Flexible Application

Flexible Application

  • Additional gas cutting of a workpiece that has already been cut to length or drilled
  • Workpiece is flame cut to length:
    • Straight cut, web flange mitre or combined mitre (two-angle cut)
    • Circular and slotted holes
    • Chamfers (welding edge preparation)
    • Longitudinal cuts
    • Castellated beams
Transport of Short Profiles

Transport of Short Profiles

  • Roller conveyor segments are moved into place for material support when needed
  • Transport of short material lengths is also possible
Collection Container for Good Parts and Scrap

Collection Container for Good Parts and Scrap

  • Scrap and slag car for the central disposal of solids and burn-off
  • Removable, stored on conveyor rollers
  • Arranged beneath the hinged roller conveyor segments
High, Repeatable Cutting Quality

High, Repeatable Cutting Quality

  • Clamping device integrated at the front and back of the work area within the roller conveyor section
  • Clamping device with integral vertical guide rollers
  • Secure workpiece positioning during the handling process
Contactless Measurement of Material Tolerances

Contactless Measurement of Material Tolerances

  • Laser system fitted adjacent to the cutting torch to measure the form and positional tolerances of the workpiece before the gas-cutting process begins
  • Comparison of target and current geometrical data with the robot program’s window of tolerance
  • Failure-free cuts through fast, contactless measurement of form and positional tolerances
Occupational Safety and Cleanliness

Occupational Safety and Cleanliness

  • Robot work area is protected by a safety enclosure with lockable door (DIN EN 775)
  • Enclosure can be connected to an exhaust and filtration system (essential with plasma)

Cross Transport with lifting pins

Cross Transport with lifting pins

  • Hydraulic liftable and lowerable lifting pins running in both directions
  • Drive system with continuously-variable frequency-controlled gear motor
  • Each lifting pin has its own hydraulic unit
Connection to Steel Roller Conveyor

Connection to Steel Roller Conveyor

  • Hydraulic liftable and lowerable lifting beams running in both directions
  • Drive system with continuously-variable frequency-controlled gear motor
  • Each lifting line has its own hydraulic unit

 

Fast Material Cross Transport

Fast Material Cross Transport

  • Material stock in heavy-duty steel construction
  • Sliding rails of synthetic material (polyamide) for low-noise material cross transport
  • Drag chains with transport claws
  • Drive system with continuously-variable frequency-controlled gear motor

 

Measuring System for Coping Robot on the Feed Side

Measuring System for Coping Robot on the Feed Side

  • Positioning drive through servo motor with absolute rotary encoder
  • Automatic NC positioning via machine software
  • Hydraulic height adjustment for measuring various profile cross-sections
  • Works as eighth robot axis during the cutting process

 

 

 

Low-Noise Material Cross Transport

Low-Noise Material Cross Transport

By lightly raising the material using polyamide-coated rollers integrated into the roller conveyor, the traditional “steel on steel” noise from cross transporting profiles is significantly reduced. Transport technology in steel construction and steel trading will be revolutionized through this new system.

  • Fully-automatic control
  • Contributes to enhanced occupational safety and the protection of personnel and the environment
