News – Servo feed unit BSV as stand-alone version
Following the market introduction of the servo feed units as integrated solutions for the B control in spring 2005, we now offer our customers the control-independent variants as “stand alone” model to be retrofitted to BRUDERER punching presses.
Separate operating panel, flexible installation options, attachment packages for the uncomplicated and fast retrofit to the punching press, extremely slim hardware interface to the machine control cabinet, simple and all-embracing operation; to name just the benchmark data of the BSV type servo feed units in “stand alone” design. For the actual handling and operation, we rely on our proven B control concept. For this purpose, several core functions were adopted for the “stand alone” operation:
- Simple operation via 5,7" touch screen display
- Tool and material data management
- Flexible parameterizable cam control with 4 customized cams
- TDC shutdown
- Language control, easy-to-use menus for commissioning
- Integrated password hierarchy system
- Display and archive for error messages
- Simple and fast connection via Ethernet
In technical terms, the BRUDERER servo feed units type BSV as “stand alone” model match the integrated solutions. An extremely slim hardware interface to the press control cabinet and the flexible mechanical assembly options allow the fast and uncomplicated retrofit even to older BRUDERER punching presses.
News – Roller feed BBV 260
The BRUDERER BBV 260 feed unit is the successor to the highly successful BBV 202. The roll feed updates the family of mechanical driven feeders and features several impressive innovations. The automated thickness setting and the quick-action roller change are only two examples.
The mechanical design of the BRUDERER BBV 260 strip feed unit is very similar to the BBV 450 which has been introduced to the market two years ago. In comparison with the predecessor model – the BBV 202 – the new feed has been consistently developed to increase the advantages for customers yet further.
One improvement is the automatic material thickness adjustment that dispenses with manual adjustments or the use of adjustment motors. This unique feature has been realized through the rearrangement of rocker arms and rollers and through the selected length ratios of the components. As it is now unnecessary to adjust the material thickness axis during the retooling process, the set-up sequence is significantly faster and easier. Moreover the rollers can be rapidly and simply clipped in and out for cleaning, replacement or profiling. This also extends the range of applications of the new BBV 260 to those sections in which pre-punched and profiled strips are used.
These and other innovative solutions combine guaranteed maximum precision with the highest reliability and availability. The first BBV 260 will be used in conjunction with the equally new BSTA 1250 and BSTA 1600 types and will be available from March 2006. The product range will then be extended to embrace machines with press forces of 500 kN.
