Custom, Purpose built systems. C-Channel punching Machine
C-Channel Processing line, Customizable to any requirement
Machine to punch holes in 2” and 3” C-channel Various lengths from 30 to 50 ft.
-C3 X 3.5 2 rows of holes 9/16” dia., 1- 3/16” side to side, 4” pitch
-C4 X 4.5 2 rows of holes 9/16” dia., 2- 3/16” side to side, 4” pitch
-Target Performance: Process 3000+ft of channel per hour.
-Operator to manually load pre-cut to length material and feed into machine.
-Machine closes entry pinch rolls, aligns the starting edge and proceeds to process the channel, punching 12 holes per press stroke until channel finished.
The system to consist of the following components:
-Non-powered, 40ft long, 3” diameter rolls on 18” centers.
-Passline height 42” (Width TBD, quote based on 16” wide conveyor)
-2 pairs of self-centering side guides to align the channel to the punching system
System Frame: the entry pinch rolls, the Hydraulic press components, exit pinch rolls.
Material entry laser sensor:
-Precision laser system to detect start of channel. Once detected, entry pinch rolls close and the system is ready to start.
Entry Pinch Rolls:
-Bottom roll – Servo driven 6” diameter feed roll, drives the bottom surface of the channel,
-Top roll –6” diameter x 1.5” wide contacts inner surface of web.
-Top roll pinch force applied by air cylinder, pressure set manually.
-Rolls are 1045 steel, induction hardened to 55-60 Rc, precision ground, surface treated and chrome coated for a hard, high friction surface giving excellent grip and long life.
Hydraulic punch press with tooling mount for offset beam processing
-9/16″ punch tool 1 for 3.5” channel 12 punches
-9/16″ punch tool 2 for 4.5” channel 12 punches
Hydraulic punch press 50 tons (to be confirmed)
-Press bed has 12 punch and die retainers for 9/16” holes mounted in 2 rows of 6, one set for 1 3/16”, one set for 2- 3/16”
-Punch heights are staggered in ¼” steps to punch 4 holes at the same time.
-First to contact punches positions 1, 2, 11, 12 (full length)
-2nd to contact positions 3, 4,9,10 (1/4” shorter)
-3rd to contact positions 5,6,7,8 (1/2” shorter)
-Opening for maintenance: 4”
-Opening when in Automatic: 1”
-Tools mounted in sliding holder, adjustable +/- 1” from center (confirm)
-Minimum 1-1/4” from outer edge of channel.
-Opening for maintenance: 4”
-Opening when in Automatic: 1” set by limit switch
-Fixed height stripper bar.
Exit Pinch Rolls: Same construction as entry pinch rolls
Exit Material Sensor:
-Signals exit pinch rolls to close when material is thru pinch rolls and open when the processed material leaves the system.
-Part pattern to be stored in control system memory.
-Control console contains the HMI (touch screen for machine control), main power disconnect, and Emergency Stop.
-Safety circuits: Dual Channel E-stop, Dual channel Gate monitor
