The Right Solution for My Shop?

Serving as the industry's benchmark for productivity, the Anglemaster-663 caters to today's fabricators' need to automate punching, shearing and marking for angle and flat bar. A redesigned Roller Feed flexes with the material, maximizing contact with the angle and flat bar and eliminating errors. No inconvenient gripper feeds, no manual measurements, all accuracy and continuous feed with no stop in production.

Roller Feed

Roller Feed
Roller Feed Redesigned

As accurate as measuring material can be, the Roller Feed drive and measurement system from Peddinghaus is designed to improve accuracy even greater than before. By positioning two encoders (infeed and prior to shear) on the machine, steel can pass through piece after piece with no stop in production. Additionally, the Roller Feed has been designed to flex with the material maximizing contact with the angle and flat bar and eliminating errors. No inconvenient gripper feeds, no manual measurements, all accuracy.

Punching

Steel Fabrication Punching
Punching

The Anglemaster-663 employs two 100 ton hydraulic cylinders mounted on a processing table for punching angle or flat stock. Three punch stations per hydraulic press allow the machine to apply up to three different hole shapes/sizes per leg. A new and improved punch tool design allows for quicker and easier tool changes when needed. The Anglemaster-663 can accommodate shaped holes such as squares, rectangles, obrounds and slots, including a feature that allows nibbling of material. This particular Anglemaster also employs a misting feature in order to maximize punch tooling life during operation through the use of Unist lubrication.

Shearing

Steel Fabrication Shearing
Shearing

The Anglemaster-663 uses a single-cut 320 ton shear press for the cutting to length angle and flat stock. The employment of a single-cut shear mechanism eliminates the slug created by double-cut shear mechanisms. The misting feature on the Anglemaster-663 extends to the shear, now allowing for longer shear life.

Measurement

Measurement System
Measurement System

The Roller Feed drive and measurement system consists of two measurement encoders. The first measuring disc with encoder is positioned at the entrance of the machine to measure distance for precision processing. An additional measuring wheel assembly is located on the exit side of the machine where measurement continues as the profile passes through the end of a program. This newly designed patent-pending Roller Feed is designed to flex with the material in order to ensure a constant roll and an accurate measurement given deviations in material.

Marking

testOptional Part Marking
Optional Part Marking

Peddinghaus employs SignoMat part stamping as well as SignoScript carbide scribing to achieve the longest lasting results. The SignoMat part stamping unit holds up to 36 characters, letters or numbers , and are stamped at a depth of 1/32" and have a total height of 1/2". This ensures the markings remain visible even after shot blasting and painting. The SignoScript carbide scribing unit marks layouts as well as characters using CNC precision.

Clamping

Material Clamping
Material Clamping

Two hydraulic roller clamps are utilized for stabilizing the material during production and maintaining its center to the primary support wheels. Four additional pneumatic hold downs serve to clamp flats and angle during the machine cycle. This ensures that material is secured during production, providing superior accuracy, and equipment longevity.

Control of the Anglemaster-663 is carried out by a PC based CNC control unit. This control places the operator in a familiar PC environment, while providing excellent performance and durability.

Software

CAD/CAM - Raptor Software - Tekla API
Raptor Software

Raptor software from Peddinghaus is today's premier structural machine tool CAD/CAM platform. Equipped with versatile modules intended to import, design, and export part programs, Raptor is fully customizable for the unique needs of the individual fabricator.

3D Module - Modify, Inspect, Create

The core of Raptor is the 3D Module. If part data has been imported into Raptor, the 3D Module works as an inspection tool and is capable of modifying imported information. If part files need to be created, the intuitive design and user friendly interface of the 3D Module allows for powerful programming options.
  Tekla API Import Module

Tekla API Import Module

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 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.
  DSTV+ Import and Export Module

DSTV+ Import and Export Module

Select MRP systems are capable of exporting batch nested files in a format known as DSTV+. This file type plays an important role in the automated development of cut sheets for production. Raptor is capable of importing and exporting these 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 DSTV+ Import and Export module purchase.
  Peddimat Import and Export Module

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
