The S4 punching-shearing center maximizes process efficiency: all the loading, punching, forming, separation and unloading operations are automatic, done by a single system that eliminates semi-finished parts, does not require manual intervention and assures extreme repeatability.
The integrated adaptive technologies make the system intelligent and able to automatically adapt to variations, eliminating waste and corrections, while guaranteeing high machining quality:
- the centering control system measures the incoming sheet and adapts the program to the actual dimensions measured, if necessary;
- the manipulator changes its dynamics according to the size and weight of the sheet, opening the pincers according to the percentage of sheet machined;
- an automatic system checks the thermal expansion of the manipulator’s axes and compensates any variations, guaranteeing extreme positioning precision;
- the shear automatically records the clearance and, depending on the thickness and the material, modulates the required force in-cycle.
Storage and automatic loading/unloading devices increase the autonomy of the system, regaining efficiency both in individual processing steps and throughout the production process. The wide range meets practically any layout or configuration requirements, adapting to the most diverse production strategies.
