Three (3) Sided Furnace Wrapper Housing
|This was a blank feed, punch and notch system feeding the part directly through the Rollformer to form the top and bottom edge flanges. The Tangent Wingformer formed the lead and trail front edge flanges then final formed the part into a three (3) sided furnace wrapper housing.
The system sensed the length and width of the individual blank and automatically site the width of the notch, punch and Rollformer, then downloaded the feed sequence for the Notch, punch and tangent form operations.
Blank Feed System to Form the Furnace Wrapper Housing from Pre-Painted Mild Steel
|The double stack tower retrieved the pre-cut blanks from eight (8) different skidded stacks. The parts will be placed onto the feed conveyor and transferred directly into the Pre-Notch and Punch Presses.|
|The Punch, Notch, and Rollformer automatically varied in width to match the blank width. A program was downloaded to sequence the notch and punch pattern along with the form sequence for the Tangent Former.||
Programmable Feed and Form Cycle to Produce a Three (3) Sided Furnace Wrapper
|The programmed Tangent Former accepted the part as it exited the Rollformer to form the two (2) end flanges and formed the units into a One (1) Piece Three (3) Sided Housing.||Two (2) opposed programmable tangent formers using a combination feed form sequence will form a wide variety of (3) sided wrappers. One traveling Tangent Former Head feeds and indexes the part into a fixed position Tangent Former Head. Using a combination of clamp, feed and form cycles the two (2) ends are formed, then sides are formed into a three (3) sided wrapper housing. Flange heights can vary the form part without any changeovers or setups.|
