The compact LPBB line processes blank sheets from an automatic storage into ready-bent, high-quality components automatically. The manufacturing line integrated punching, laser cutting, bending and intelligent part handling.
LPBB – the compact Prima Power FMS
Prima Power LPBB is a compact, flexible manufacturing line processing blank sheets into ready-bent, high-quality components. The Prima Power years of experience guarantee that the solution for each function, as well the overall engineering of the system, are based on thoroughly proven knowhow in
- System design
- Machine tools and cells
- Material handling automation
- Customer support and
- Automatic storages for flexible buffering
LPBB – piece by piece as you need
Very fast reaction times are expected in modern production. Machines need to be flexible and extremely fast for quick response to production orders, often very small quantities. With storage integration to LPBB requirements can be met as COMBO FMS® and Night Train FMS® storages can provide a number of materials whenever needed without delay. Further, since storages can serve as intermediate buffer for stacked components, material flows from storage and direct from cutting head to bending process can be combined and the utilization rate of the panel bender improved.
Equipped with an automatic storage the LPBB line is the perfect solution for lights-out production of even the most intricate components from a variety of materials, which can be changed, as programmed, automatically.
When fast raw material change is required due to manufacturing process, COMBO FMS storage can be connected to LPBB line with loading device LD for fast loading of individual sheets using a special gripper. Thus the COMBO storage crane has a dual function: handling sheets stacks on cassettes and loading individual sheets.
The sheets are transferred into an integrated punching – fiber laser cutting cell. After cutting the components are picked and stacked by a gantry robot for buffering and subsequent bending in an automatic bending cell. Alternatively, parts can be directly transferred to the bending process on conveyors.
