Automation Amplifies Machine Sophistication and Speed
MC Machinery Systems will display new automation and machines at FABTECH 2019.
MC Machinery Systems will display new automation and machines at FABTECH 2019. The Advanced 800 eX-F series fiber laser will be on display with upgraded ASTES4 automation. This fiber laser features key technologies to amplify overall machine sophistication and speed. The ASTES4’s integrated automated sorting solution enables less manual loading, unloading and sorting for higher productivity and efficiency.
The BH13530 press brake will also be on display with automatic tool changer. The BH13530 includes a larger control, improved cycle times and a friendlier user interface, as well as the diamond BH “Dual Drive” system which controls high-speed up and down movement with a ball screw and bending movement by the servo-hydraulic piston. The automatic tool changer provides quicker and more precise tool setup for maximum machine uptime.
Additional press brakes, the BB6020 with Videre and the compact BB306 will also be on display. Both BB series electric press brakes offer solid performance and include an AC servo motor and ball screw mechanism for high-speed productivity and repeatability. The Videre operator support system simplifies press brake operations by displaying functional process information. Videre streamlines setup and work handling, improving productivity by reducing bending defects and eliminating non-value added steps in daily machine interactions. The BB306 is the newest BB series offering that, with its smaller footprint, can be configured to fit any facility.
InspecVision, the high-speed integrated 2D and 3D measurement system will be on display. InspecVision brings speed, accuracy and reliability to measurement quality processes. The 2D system can verify product quality by performing 2D inspection, CAD comparisons and reverse engineering. The 3D system measures surfaces and edges by using a high-speed, high-resolution industrial camera and an LED DLP projector to scan the surfaces of an object.
Niche marketing, a commitment to technology and short leadtimes equal success for this producer of blow molds-and earns them MoldMaking Technology magazine's 2004 Leadtime Leader award.
Developments, strategies, processes and technologies are available to help ensure an efficient toolroom.
Although PERC (Programmable Electric Rotating Cores System) is not a brand-new technology, it warrants a second look as a way for moldmakers to provide another value-added service to their customers.
