In today’s competitive marketplace every process that can be automated translates into higher profit margins, and lower operating costs.
Now available on Peddinghaus drill lines is the complete automation of 4 axis carbide scribing capabilities. This new enhancement is facilitated by optional carbide scribing tools on each of the drilling axes, combined with an all new optional underside scribing mechanism.
"What does 4 axis layout marking offer to my production process?"
Value is added to your drilling machine by applying automated layout capabilities to all 4 sides of a profile. Not only is the element of human error practically eliminated from your layout process, material handling is minimized as parts leave your drill fully prepped for fit-up operations. Well beyond simply marking characters - weld symbols and layout marks are easily accounted for at multiple sizes, orientations, and depths.
"How do you program for multi-surface layout marking?"
Many modern software packages allow for fast and efficient generation of layout marking programs. Platforms such as Adnexxus from Peddinghaus are capable of extracting all scribe information directly from a Tekla building model and translating it into a Peddimat part program. Using Adnexxus, the software can actually tell where parts are joined and automatically communicate with the drill to create the predefined marks at that location - with no manual intervention!
"How do I know 4 axis carbide scribing is right for my production process?"
Modern drilling technologies consistently save fabricators hundreds of man hours per year by applying automated dimensioning to the task of drilling holes. Learn how you can make your production processes even more efficient using this same time tested measurement technology to optimize the task of layout marking.
