Sheet Metal Technologies

Perfect for even more applications

The new AMADA ENSIS-3015AJ RI laser cutting system with its innovative rotary index (RI) unit and integrated material measurement now also permits the laser cutting of pipes and profiles. The system is based on the proven AMADA ENSIS laser beam source.

TRUMPF and Axoom are digitally networked with Daimler

Industry 4.0 holds great potential for increasing productivity through new forms of collaboration between customers and system suppliers – especially through connected, predictive maintenance services. For example, TRUMPF increased the capacity of its laser welding lines by helping to reduce downtime at Daimler, and optimized its internal operating processes at the same time.

Complete automation for new welding robot

The Nuremberg-based drive and automation specialist Baumüller has developed the new welding robot QIROX QRC-290 together with Cloos, a manufacturer for robot and welding technology. The new six-axis articulated robot can hold welding torches with a weight of up to 4 kg and impresses with very precise dynamic movements at a high speed.

New dimensions in laser welding

Equipped with the optimized ENSIS beam technology, the new AMADA FLW ENSIS laser welding cell bridges even large gap sizes. Welding nearly without any deposits and at an exceptional speed, it is entering a new era in laser welding.

“Old girl” gets a new lease on life

The 1,500-ton press at Meleghy Automotive wasn’t so young anymore: The “old girl”, as the machine is affectionately referred to by the automotive supplier’s workers in Bernsbach, was built in 1968. The aging machine’s days appeared to be numbered, as last year saw teeth break off of the pinion shaft and cracks were also found in the crown and press uprights. Despite these signs of wear, Meleghy Automotive wasn’t so eager to put its trusty system out to pasture – and instead opted for a complete modernization.

State-of-the-art machine technologies presented live

At this year’s Blechexpo, which was held from 7th to 10th November in Stuttgart, AMADA presented its latest achievements in sheet metal processing at Booth 3307 in Hall 3. There, on a 700-square-foot floor, visitors were invited to discover not less than six systems and machines. In the field of laser cutting and welding, stamping and bending, a comprehensive overview of production solutions has demonstrated in live operations that sophisticated manufacturing processes can be successfully carried out – efficiently, flexibly and with superior quality.

The new AMADA AE-2610NT: Enhanced punching performance

With larger tool stations in an extended large-format machine, the AMADA AE-2610NT is opening up new possibilities for economical, high-speed punching. This CNC-controlled turret punch press also excels in terms of flexibility, quality and operator convenience.

OMAX Introduces New Personal Waterjet Cutter

OMAX Corporation announced the release of the new ProtoMAX abrasive waterjet, a compact, self-installed cutting system ideally suited for prototyping and relatively low volume cutting of almost any material under 2” thick. The ProtoMAX brings all the versatility benefits of large abrasive waterjet cutters in a sleek and economic package that’s perfect for small job shops, engineering classrooms, makerspaces, and personal use. It’s also a handy addition for large shops and fabricators that need occasional waterjet capabilities to complement their other cutting systems.

Unconventional and successful

A LaserNetwork incorporating a TruLaser 5030 fiber and a TruLaser Robot 5020 is hardly a standard configuration. But for Werner Neumann, CEO at CBV Blechbearbeitung, this is the ideal combination. Both efficient and energy-saving, the network paves the way to an affordable start in laser welding, even when machining small batches.
