The 3 in 1 press feed line is a cutting-edge stamping automation equipment that has been successfully utilized abroad for several years. This state-of-the-art production line, when combined with a punch press, is known as a short-process stamping automation line due to its compact footprint and simplified workflow. Gradually, it has replaced segmented stamping production lines and has become the leading choice in the foreign stamping market. Now, we are at the forefront of introducing the 3 in 1 press feed line into the stamping industry in China.
Broad Application Scope
One of the significant advantages of the 3 in 1 press feed line is its ability to process thick and high-strength materials, which are challenging for segmented stamping production lines. While the latter is suitable only for thin and medium-thickness materials below 4.0mm, the 3 in 1 press feed line can handle materials up to 12mm in thickness. Additionally, it can effectively process various high-strength sheet materials, making it an ideal choice for automated thick plate material processing.
Higher Leveling and Feeding Precision
The 3 in 1 press feed line boasts superior leveling and feeding precision, resulting in better product quality. In traditional segmented stamping production lines, there are waiting areas between separate decoilers, straighteners, and feeders. Despite the use of frequency converters on each device, achieving complete synchronization for their operation and coordination is challenging. This lack of synchronization inevitably affects the precision of leveling and feeding. However, with the 3 in 1 press feed line, the decoiling, leveling, and feeding processes are integrated into a single machine, ensuring complete synchronization through a PLC closed-loop control system, thus guaranteeing precision in leveling and feeding.
Compact Structure and Space-Saving
Another advantage of the 3 in 1 press feed line is its compact structure, which results in a smaller floor space requirement. Traditional segmented stamping production lines demand a significant amount of space due to the need for waiting areas between machines. For materials above medium thickness, the layout space often needs to be around 10 meters, and in some cases, even excavation of pits may be necessary. In contrast, the 3 in 1 press feed line integrates the three machines tightly, leading to a total body length of only about 4 meters and eliminating the need for waiting areas. The material discharge support device directly enters the feeding port of the punch die, resulting in considerable floor space savings.
Convenient Operation and Labor Savings
The 3 in 1 press feed line offers convenient operation, truly realizing automation, significantly reducing labor requirements, and decreasing labor intensity. While traditional segmented stamping production lines can achieve automation during operation, they still rely on manual loading, guiding, separate adjustments, trial runs, material changes, and various other operations. As a result, they cannot fully achieve automated production. In contrast, the 3 in 1 press feed line is a truly automated equipment, with loading, feeding, material positioning, folding, leveling, feeding, and material changing all controlled by one person from the console. This results in significant labor savings and reduced labor intensity.
Low Failure Rates and Minimal Maintenance
The 3 in 1 press feed line is equipped with imported core components, a comprehensive lubrication system, and built-in self-inspection programs, which contribute to its low failure rates. The core components, such as the Yaskawa servo motor and driver, Mitsubishi PLC, Omron photoelectric sensors, Schneider circuit breakers, and NSK bearings, are all originally imported from Germany and Japan. These high-quality components, along with the comprehensive lubrication system and built-in self-inspection programs, ensure minimal wear and tear and keep maintenance straightforward and hassle-free.
In conclusion, the 3 in 1 press feed line has several distinct advantages that make it a superior choice over traditional segmented stamping production lines. Its broader application scope, higher precision, space-saving design, convenient operation, and low failure rates make it an excellent investment for businesses looking to enhance their stamping automation processes. As we introduce this cutting-edge technology into the Chinese stamping industry, we are confident that it will revolutionize the way we approach stamping automation and improve overall productivity and product quality.
