At Euroblech, the two machine manufacturers LISSMAC and KOHLER showed a jointly developed system. It illustrates how the deburring and straightening processes can be optimally coordinated with each other and thus generate high efficiency potential for the overall process.
The grinding, deburring and partial straightening of sheet metal parts are processes that usually go hand in hand. It is therefore a good thing if the competences are also combined in the development of the equipment. Against this background, LISSMAC Maschinenbau GmbH and KOHLER Maschinenbau GmbH have jointly developed a deburring-straightening line. The line combination, which was presented at Euroblech, consists of the SBM-L G1S2 1500 grinding and deburring machine from Lissmac and a Peak Performer parts leveler from KOHLER, according to a company release.
The SBM-L series machines are basically suitable for double-sided processing of workpieces made of stainless steel, steel, aluminum or non-ferrous metals, it added. They were developed for deburring and edge rounding on both sides in a single operation and can be used for processing sheet metal parts, laser parts and stamped parts.
The L series is equipped with three units each on the top and bottom sides. Workpieces can be machined on the top side, the bottom side or both sides as desired, sp the manufacturer. "Double-sided sheet metal processing and edge rounding in just one operation enables time savings of up to 60 percent compared to grinding machines that process on one side. It is also possible to connect automation solutions or integrate it into production lines without any problems. This is exactly what we have realized with our partner KOHLER," says Robert Dimmler, Sales Director Metal Processing at LISSMAC Maschinenbau GmbH.
The integrated Peak Performer machine from KOHLER enables precise straightening and thus low-stress and flat sheets as well as part blanks, he adds. The system features a direct drive for the straightening rolls, which ensures greater energy efficiency, less wear and a higher straightenable cross-section, it adds. An advanced cleaning system enables easy cleaning of the straightening rolls and back-up rolls. In addition, the patented electromechanical straightening gap control ensures a reliably constant straightening gap, the likewise patented reversible straightening rolls ensure a longer service life, and extra-wide back-up rolls provide particularly stiff support for the straightening rolls, it adds.
