Punching

Two robust 75 ton hydraulic cylinders mounted on a processing table are employed for punching on the AFPS-643/623. These powerful cylinders aid in the production of a wide variety of angle sizes ranging from 1/8" thick to 5/8" thick.

For faster, more accurate production, the AFPS-643/623 offers a hydraulic hold down clamp unit. This assembly assists during the punching process regardless of tooling clearance. This, in addition to a rugged clamping system allows bent/twisted angle to be processed with ease.

When maintenance or manual tool change is a concern a unique “easy out” die design facilitates tool changes, for expedited production. Each punch stem has key ways machined for correct orientation of shaped tooling. Optional tooling packages are available to achieve very tight gauge lines on any size angle iron.

The 643 Design with 2 Punches per Leg

Double tool punching is available with the 643 version of the Peddinghaus Anglemaster. This version utilizes 2 punch stations per hydraulic press, and thus allows the machine to apply up to 2 different hole shapes/sizes per leg without the need to manually change punch and die tooling. The AFPS-643/623 can accommodate shaped holes such as square, rectangular, obround, or slots.
  The 623 Design with 1 Punch per Leg

The AFPS-643/623 features an unmatched clamping system for a rigid work piece through the machine. Equipped with two hydraulic roller clamps for stabilizing material during production, the AFPS-643/623 maintains center to the primary support wheels. During the Machine cycle, four additional pneumatic hold downs serve to clamp flat and angle iron, assuring accuracy, productivity, and increases tool life.

Shearing

Shearing

Featuring a 230 ton shear, the Anglemaster utilizes single cut tooling which eliminates the creation of a shear “slug”. This ensures minimum scrap and material waste. Changeover time to process angle iron to flat stock is significantly reduced to five minutes, simply change the shear blade.





Measurement

Roller Measurement

Peddinghaus' Roller Measurement allows for supreme flexibility in regards to material handling, and scrap savings. This unique form of measurement actually drives the material through the machine with a powerful drive roller mechanism. By applying a set of precision encoders that track distance the material has traveled, the machine is able to quickly and accurately produce perfect parts. Benefits of the Peddinghaus Roller Feed system can include:
  • Minimized footprint - store material outside, and allow material to easily pass through a small doorway through the exterior walls of your facility
  • No length restriction - stock length is dictated only by weight
  • Load profiles of all shapes and sizes one after another without any stop in production - no need to wait for the return or unload of a gripper carriage, no need to change clamping devices

Part Marking

SignoScript carbide part marking offers unmistakable accuracy when layout or part marking the surface of any angle or flat stock piece. Providing unlimited marking data, and complete legibility, the SignoScript marking system is perfect for galvanized or painted material. Multiple marking depths are available for desired visibility after coatings processes (adjustable marking depth of 1/16" - 1/8").

Carbide Scribing is ideal for:
  • Marking part numbers - Visible after painting, galvanizing, or other coating processes
  • Designating weld locations
  • Providing contour marks for manual cutouts
  SignoMat Part Stamping

Material Handling

AFPS-643/623 - AngleMaster - Angle Line Machine - Detailing Machine - Angle Iron - Flat Stock
Material Handling

Loading and unloading of long angle iron and flat stock sections, is very expensive and hard work. An Anglemaster material handling system alleviates cost and labor associated with moving sections, with the use of a rapid, automated sequence process. Reduced labor and increasing shop efficiency will result in more profitable processing of angle iron.

Material does not need electricity, heat, or shelter in order to be stored. Peddinghaus' Roller Feed design makes it easy to place material handling outdoors. On top of saving shop space, this innovative method eliminates unnecessary crane handling that inhibits other operations inside of your shop. Easily unload delivery trucks outside, and load conveyor without slowing other parts of your production.
  Automatic Angle & Flat Stock Loader

Complete with appropriate material storage stands, each 12' stand is equipped with a motorized roller chain assembly for automatic advancement of material. A pneumatic indexing assembly is mounted on the AFPS, and is designed to gradually lower the next stock length into the infeed conveyor system.
  Automatic Material Advance

The Powered Material Advance (PMA) device moves material forward that is placed within the clamp. After the material stock is loaded onto the infeed, the PMA is capable of moving the material in both directions, as well as “jogged” into position.

The combination exit conveyor and unloading system are designed for 20 ft. material, however, both can be expanded to accommodate any length of part. The conveyor system offers two separate unloader locations, designed to transport sheared angles at speeds up to 200 FPM. The Peddimat software system synchronizes and controls the exit conveyor and unloading system.

Software

For fabricators who desire a more precise, data rich import, a direct Tekla API Module is available for optimized file conversions. Users of Tekla Structures have the option of importing geometry directly into Raptor with no intermediary file conversions. This direct transfer sources the original design of the structure and allows for automatic generation of scribe data.
  DSTV Import Module
Raptor CAD/CAM Software
DSTV Import Module

BIM software programs (such as SDS/2, Tekla Structures, Graitec, and more,) are capable of creating part programs for use within Raptor by exporting data into a common file standard - DSTV. DSTV files are capable of being imported into the Raptor software platform for editing or CNC file creation purposes.
  DSTV Export Module
Raptor CAD/CAM Software
DSTV Export Module

Raptor is capable of exporting part information into a DSTV file format (including scribes, copes, and holes). All enhancements or corrections applied within Raptor are included within the exported DSTV file using this module. The DSTV export module brings the power of Raptor to third party CNC machinery that can import files of this type.
  iDSTV+ and DSTV+ Import/Export Module
Raptor CAD/CAM Software
iDSTV+ and DSTV+ Import/Export Module

Select MRP systems are capable of exporting batch nested files in formats known as DSTV+ and iDSTV+. These file types play an important role in the automated development of cut sheets for production. Raptor is capable of importing and exporting these iDSTV+ and DSTV+ files for production on equipment. This eliminates the need to manually batch nest files, which have already been batch nested within a third party MRP software. Standard DSTV import and export modules are included with the iDSTV+ and DSTV+ Import and Export module.
  Peddimat Import and Export Module
Raptor CAD/CAM Software
Peddimat Import and Export Module
