Material Dimensioning / Short Stroke Punching and Shearing

The Anglemaster-HD utilizes comprehensive material dimensioning to not only increase production, but also create a user friendly atmosphere. By utilizing an array of electronic feedback, the Anglemaster-HD can identify the length of stock, thickness of material, and width (angle leg width or flat bar width). Once the machine understands all dimensions of material, it optimizes punch and shear stroke lengths to increase production efficiency. If loaded stock does not match that of the selected program, the machine will notify the operator and provide the option to continue the program, or locate the appropriate stock type.
  Smart Cylinder Technology

Using the information gathered by the material dimensioning system, the Angelmaster-HD understands the thickness of material loaded, and employs this information to automatically adjust the three speed punch and shear cylinders. By adjusting the amount of power needed per section size, the machine can take full advantage of lower tonnage / high speed operations when thinner material is being processed. When thicker material is loaded, the machine will maximize tonnages in order to process these sections accordingly.

Roller Feed

Continuous production is the benefit that Roller Measurement offers fabricators. Process one piece after another with no need to reload a carriage or other feed mechanism. Accuracy is made paramount with the use of two precision roller disks at the entry, and exit of the machine. This technology permits x-axis material motion up to 200 FPM.

Smart Cylinder technology combines the versatility of three-speed punch/shear cylinders and information gathered during the material dimensioning routine to process parts faster than ever before. Cylinder tonnages are adjusted per measured thickness of material. Lower tonnage speeds (ideal for thinner materials) provide faster press cycle times than traditional cylinders capable of comparable tonnages.

Shearing

A powerful 3 speed single cut shear is incorporated into the Anglemaster-HD for the production of both the thickest and thinnest of materials. The application of single cut shear tooling eliminates the creation of scrap "slugs" commonly experienced with double cut shear tooling, thus reducing scrap costs, and associated material handling overhead for removal and recycling processes.

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

Parts Tracking Module

The Parts Tracking Module is for monitoring the production of parts on Peddinghaus machines using Siemens controls. Now available as an option with Raptor software, the Parts Tracking Module works in the background of the CNC control creating output files that display vital information about part production.

Benefits of the Parts Tracking Module include:
  • Automatic documentation of production
  • Potential to view progress remotely
  • Ability to monitor employee productivity
  • Elimination of human error in the production monitoring process

Material Handling

Material Handling
Material Handling

Loading and unloading of long angle iron and flat stock sections is costly and difficult work. The Anglemaster-HD’s material handling system alleviates cost and labor associated with moving sections, with the use of a rapid, automated sequence process. Reduced labor and increased shop efficiency results in a more profitable processing of angle/detail parts.

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 the conveyor without slowing shop flow.
  Automatic Angle and 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 AFCPS and is designed to gradually lower the next stock length into the infeed conveyor system.
  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 ensuring that the material is “jogged” into position.

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