Entgrat- und Richttechnik in einer Anlage vereint
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.

bauma Ausfahrt 2022
Saturday is always the most popular day for visitors during the bauma week. This year, a trip to bauma was organized by our works council on Saturday, October 29, 2022. Together a group of more than 50 colleagues started early in the morning by bus towards Munich. Of course, the LISSMAC booth was also visited to meet the colleagues on site and to marvel at our products. All in all it was a successful trip with many different impressions. Many thanks to the works council for the great organization! We are looking forward to the next bauma in three years.
LISSMAC Service Training Metal Processing
October was a busy month for LISSMAC: Both Euroblech in Hanover and BAUMA in Munich were on the agenda.Since many of our international dealers used this as an opportunity to visit Germany, we offered a service training at our headquarters during this period.The offer was well received and with 10 participants we started on 24.11.2022 in our demonstration center in Bad Wurzach. Part of the one-week training was an update on new products and the process-safe handling of our machines, so that a smooth commissioning/maintenance can be guaranteed by our staff.Due to the wide range of international participants, various experiences could be reported and exchanged. This is not only important for the dealers/service partners themselves, but also for us as a company, because it is only through feedback that we can continue to develop. We are already looking forward to the next training and will announce new dates here.
LISSMAC AT THE EUROBLECH – Grinding and deburring technology for the most diverse requirements
Euroblech is one of the most important trade fairs for the machine manufacturer Lissmac with a focus on sheet metal working. This year, the company is concentrating on presenting the SBM series and the SMD 3 series. Both types of system operate highly efficiently and can be customised for a wide range of customer requirements. Basically, Lissmac customers always have the option of choosing between two machine concepts with regard to their order processing: double-sided processing in one operation and single-sided processing - dry on one side or wet on the other. Double-sided, dry machining offers a lot of efficiency potential In Hanover, Lissmac will present three models of the SBM series. "These machines set standards in sheet metal processing. In the dry machining process, the efficient machin-ing of all cutting contours on both sides of sheet metal, i.e. the outer and inner contours, takes place in just one work process. Synchronous machining on both sides offers maxi-mum productivity and the best machining results," says the manufacturer. The machining principle ensures uniform tool wear across the entire working width. Moreover, the dry processing means that no chemical additives are required, as is the case with barrel finishing, for example. According to Lissmac, all machines in this series stand for energy efficiency and high and consistent machining quality. In addition, a quick and easy tool change is possible.The Lissmac equipment portfolio comprises four machine series. Depending on the pro-duction task or sheet thickness, the SBM-XS, SBM-M, SBM-L or SBM-XL series is used. These machine models differ in terms of working width, as well as the number and type of units for workpiece machining Fully automatic small parts processing Particularly in small parts machining, high quantities are often processed. Lissmac pre-sents its SBM-XS 300 ALU MIX small parts deburring machine with a loading robot. The line ensures a low-manpower and efficient production process through bin picking. It also features a modern, compact machine design and thus a small footprint, as well as simple and intuitive machine operation. The SBM-XS 300 ALU MIX with vacuum table is de-signed for deburring and edge rounding of steel, stainless steel and aluminium with sheet thicknesses from 1 to 15 mm and for part sizes from 45 x 45 x 1 mm up to a maxi-mum of 200 x 200 x 15 mm, depending on the geometry. . Inner and outer contours are machined equally. The integrated turning station eliminates the need for time-consuming turning and reprocessing of the parts. Folding away the turning station allows parts with an edge length of more than 200 mm to be processed unilaterally. For deburring and edge rounding of the inner and outer contours of stamped parts of punched parts, as well as for laser- or fine plasma-cut workpieces, the two dry-operating SBM-L 1000 G1S2 and SBM-L 1500 G1S2 machines will be shown. The focus of the two systems, which are implemented with passage widths of 1000 mm and 1500 mm respec-tively, is the removal of spatter on the sheet surface. Here, too, the deburring of the often very heavy workpieces on both sides saves cost-intensive turning or machining of the parts twice. The processing units are individually electrically adjustable or can be switched on and off. The transverse machining principle ensures optimum tool utilisation over the entire working width and the modular, compact construction in modern machine design requires only a small amount of space.Very important for the employees at the plant is the improved working environment of the plant through extraction and filter technology. This significantly reduces dust, dirt and noise pollution. Optional smart features include automatic tool wear compensation, auto-matic sheet thickness measurement, a barcode scanner and other tools. One-sided, efficient dry machining for beginners and professionals The product range of single-sided dry grinding machines includes the particularly eco-nomical entry-level models of the SMD 1 series. Their range of applications extends from deburring and all-round edge rounding to the removal of heavy plasma or flame-cut slag.At Euroblech, Lissmac will present the universal entry-level machine SMD 123 RE, which can be used for machining steel, stainless steel and aluminium. It is suitable for removing cutting burrs that occur during punching or laser and plasma cutting. The two rotor heads of the system enable uniform edge rounding on all sides and also a directionless finish. The creation of a surface grind is possible without time-consuming set-up work. Compo-nents can also be machined by forming. The SMD 123 RE has a small footprint and can be operated intuitively via a touch panel. Other features include separate switching on and off of the processing units, a continuously adjustable sanding belt speed and a quick and easy tool change. In the high-performance segment, the versatile models of the SMD 3 series are convinc-ing for efficient part processing from 50 x 50 mm, regardless of the part geometry. The range of applications extends from slag removal, deburring and uniform edge rounding up to a radius of 2.0 mm to surface finishing and small parts machining. "The sophisticat-ed tool arrangement of the SMD3 series ensures a uniform machining result over the en-tire working width. Maximum tool contact with the components ensures perfect edge rounding up to a radius of 2 mm. A programme memory ensures automatic machine set-ting and reproducible machining results, and a fixed machine table with constant table height ensures ergonomic working," says machine manufacturer Lissmac, summarising some of the advantages. On top of that, there is intuitive operation thanks to the clearly laid out touch panel and fast machine setting using automatic positioning of the tool ax-es. A quick tool change system reduces set-up times to a minimum and optimum accessi-bility to the machine facilitates cleaning and maintenance. In Hanover, visitors to the Lissmac stand can find out about the SMD 345 REER (S-Edition), for example. The system can be used in a variety of ways - from edge rounding R2 to finishing. The creation of directionless grinding patterns and strong edge rounding is also made possible by several round brushes. According to LISSMAC, the machine is also predestined for processing sheet metal with coating, foiling, embossing or through-passages, the processing of various materials such as steel, stainless steel andaluminium as well as the simultaneous machining of different material thicknesses.The SMD 335 DRE (P-Edition), which will also be presented, is suitable for machining thick sheets. It scores with cool-grinding due to low heat input into the workpieces. Me-chanical slag removal also eliminates the need for expensive machining and results in reduced tooling costs for users. As with all systems in the SMD 3 series, LISSMAC also offers various optional features for individual customer requirements. In cooperation with the straightening technology specialists from Kohler Maschinenbau GmbH, Lissmac will also be presenting a processing line for deburring and part straight-ening in a single operation at its exhibition stand. The interlinking of the two processes ensures an efficient production process and material flow and thus significantly reduces the effort required for material handling and logistics. "The highest machining quality of the workpieces is the optimal prerequisite for further machining and processing of the components," says Lissmac. No matter what task the companies want to solve, the Lissmac team of experts looks for-ward to individual consultations and professional exchange. Lissmac will be present at Euroblech in Hall 14 at Booth K06. Text: Annedore Bose-Munde
40 years of Masonry Band Saws – a success story made by LISSMAC
"The MBS masonry band saw is one of the most successful products in the history of LISSMAC. In 1982, this innovation marked the beginning of the company's rise from a small family business to an internationally oriented company with around 400 employees and a wide range of products today," says Managing Director Daniel Keller. Until then, bricks and aerated concrete blocks were laboriously sawn by hand on construction sites and painstak-ingly straightened with a planer. 40 years later, the LISSMAC MBS series (Masonry Band Saw) maintains its leading market position. In cooperation with users, its strengths have been further developed and adapted to the growing requirements. The LISSMAC masonry band saw was barely on the market when it became a big hit. "It was 'only' a saw, but it revolutionised a work step that is carried out thousands of times a day on construction sites all over the world," says Keller. Creating more with less effort and achieving better quality at the same time - LISSMAC didn't have to explain these tangible advantages to any contractor. An enormous demand was awakened and the machines found brisk sales. "In the aerated concrete industry, we achieved an incredibly high market share in the early years. Often the saws were rent-ed out to the customers by the AAC manufacturers when they bought the bricks," retired LISSMAC employees still remember the successful early years with pleasure. The masonry band saw was designed as a precise, reliable tool for tough professional use, yet so simple and practical to use that even DIY amateurs could work immediately and safely with the masonry band saw. Making good things better is one of LISSMAC's traditional strengths, as is innovation. As early as 1984, two years after its market launch, the first evolutionary stage of the best seller took off: The MBS 502 already had the product name that is still valid today and gleamed in green instead of or-ange, LISSMAC's company colour at the time, until the company adopted a new corporate design in blue in 2009. MBS 502 stood for masonry band saw with 500 mm impeller diameter in the 2nd generation. Today, LISSMAC offers perfect solutions for every customer requirement with three MBS versions, whereby the product names are still speaking. MBS 510 stands for 510 mm cutting height. Above this are the MBS 650 and the flagship MBS 760, with which even the processing of large blocks is easy. The machine has a robust roller table that can be positioned extremely pre-cisely even under heavy loads and makes handling large-format stones much easier and faster."Performance with added value has always been our claim. The decisive plus in benefits distin-guishes all LISSMAC machines - the MBS made the start," says Keller. The MBS masonry band saws have proven themselves for four decades with low-maintenance reliability, years of precision and unique details copied from daily work on construction sites worldwide. For example, LISSMAC delivered several MBS 510 and MBS 650 to Dubai, where Sobha Construction LLC had to cut more than 200,000 aerated concrete blocks with millimetre precision for the construction of a luxu-ry resort. "On the construction site, it is precisely the seemingly minor details on the machines that make the decisive difference between pleasure and frustration at work. LISSMAC stands for per-fection and practical relevance – something that users truly appreciate. Here in Dubai, too," says Johnson Pereira, Sales Manager at the LISSMAC location in the United Arab Emirates, providing another episode for the 40-year success story of LISSMAC masonry band saws.
