Production efficiency doubled with plate processor
One of Kaltenbach’s latest plate processing centres, a KF1606 single head CNC plasma system, has been installed at the purpose built site of a Scottish steelwork contractor.
The KF1606 has been developed specifically for the demands of fabricators and stockists, as accurate profiles and drilled, counter-bored and tapped holes can be rapidly achieved in strip-fed material from 6mm to 60mm thick.
Fully PLC controlled via a user-friendly, integrated monitor and keyboard console, the speed and accuracy of the KF1606 is supported by a precision, material feed and length positioning twin-gripper system on an 8m long input rollerway.
Cutting torch head and tool-bits are PLC traversed and positioned to suit, with tool-bit speed and feed rates automatically pre-programmed via the machines operating system to suit each selected tool diameter. Operator override is also possible via the control panel.
