through the machine by a bottom feed chain with special pads that grip the stock securely while it passes the workstations. With digital readouts and MicroPoint tilt at the workstations and digital readout on the eversquare infeed guide, this machine is designed for easy set-up and repeatable tool change between profiles.
The welded box frame construction provides a rigid structure insuring accurate and repeatable tool positioning. Base weldment is pre-drilled for permanent machine installation.
The transporter assembly incorporates a large infeed support area and is equipped with an ever-square infeed guide with digital readout, adjustable feed drive motor and bottom feed chain. Substrate is positioned on infeed plate against the edge guide; when drive motor is activated, bottom feed chain transports the substrate past the shaping, sanding and foiling stations. Bottom feed chain is topped with non-marking polymer pads. An electronically controlled oil pump automatically lubricates transporter chain race assembly.
ROLLER HOLDDOWN ASSEMBLY:
The steel plate holddown beam is equipped with a safety switch at the infeed area, anti-intrusion hood and nonmarking polymer rollers. Polymer rollers hold the substrate against the bottom pads while the workpiece is transported past the shaping, sanding and foiling stations. Infeed limit switch deactivates drive motor if substrate is misfed. Digital readout on vertical adjustment handwheel adjusts for substrate thickness.
Non-marking outboard rollers support the weight of extra wide substrates as they are transported past the shaping and sanding stations.
Shaping station is equipped with precision-balanced drive motor and spindle. The spindle rotates against the direction of feed. Spindle is equipped with double collets and has angular, horizontal and vertical adjustments with accurate and repeatable digital readouts as well as a spindle lock to facilitate tool changes. Each station is equipped with dust hood/safety guard.
Sanding station is equipped with precision-balanced drive motor and spindle. The spindle rotates against the direction of feed. The spindle is equipped with double collets and has angular, horizontal and vertical adjustments with accurate and repeatable digital readouts and is equipped with dust hood/safety guard.
Foiling station is equipped with 8-inch diameter foil wheel, non-contact sensor and oven for automatic temperature control. Wheel adjustment positions are by digital readouts and MicroPoint tilt for easy tool changes. The foil unwind has a large capacity with accurate tracking and constant tension adjustments. The adjustable torque rewind is conveniently located for removal of used foil.
CONTROL AND COMPONENT PANELS:
Lighted touch screen controls are located on a swing arm for operator convenience. Emergency stop pushbutton controls are located at the infeed and outfeed areas. The function and logic of the machine is controlled by a “PLC”. Control and component panels conform to ANSI/NFPA 70 and NFPA 79 electrical standards and can meet European Community standards. Machine is pre-wired for installation in customer’s factory.
Each shaping and sanding station is equipped with a dust hood and hose. Manifold is provided for connection to customer’s dust collection system. The L115 is a production-oriented machine designed for reliability and operator convenience. It is furnished
ready for hookup with safety enclosure.
