Eurobend is specialized in efficient and pioneering welding machines offering excellent overall solutions for every precast application, outperforming some competition. Especially the PL XY AMM series is offering fully automatic operation, eliminating all manual adjustments and producing standard as well as customized mesh sheets of any complexity (with openings for wall panels, with different lengths and diameters within the same mesh etc).
Eurobend machines are using the latest cutting edge technology, simple yet sophisticated software environment with enormous capabilities, equipped also with the available interface to work together with all industrial digital working formats such as BVBS, Unitechnik etc.
Furthermore, the simple and modular design (adopted by all Eurobend machines) offers exceptional straightforward operation and minimal maintenance requirements.
Focus on southern Finland
The latest installation of another PL XY AMM, took place in Finland at “Santalan Betoni”.
Santalan Betoni was founded in 1971 and the company operates today as a group with Rasmin Oy Ab. The company operates nationwide, with a focus on southern Finland.
Their work consists of projects of varying sizes and contents. In all circumstances, their goal is high quality of products and services, respect for the environment, and health and safety of our staff. The company‘s main business areas are; precast concrete products, ready-mixed concrete products, construction works, and processing of aggregates.
Their newly installed PL XY AMM is a unique high-end automatic mesh welding line, which works directly from coil, will help them to fully automate their production of customized reinforcement mesh for their wall panels.
Without any adjustments
The installed PL XY AMM produces mesh with maximum diameter up to Ø12mm for both, line and cross wires. It is equipped with two independently moving welding blocks, with total of eight welding points. The produced mesh can have minimum line wire spacing of 50 mm (and above, in steps of 50 mm) and minimum cross wire spacing of 50mm (or above infinitely programmable) for all diameters. Any mesh with the above characteristics can be produced instantly, one type after the other, without any adjustments, as everything is controlled by the machine’s software. This PL XY AMM can produce mesh of up to 4m wide and 9m long.
The PL XY AMM is the only mesh welding line of this type that offers no downtime when changing:
Patented wire convergence system
Separate compartments for each de-coiling station allows new coil feeding during machine operation ensuring continuous production.
Any mesh can be produced instantly, one type after the other, without any manual adjustments or human intervention. All product changes are controlled and immediately executed by the machine’s computer program.
The wire feeding is done through two independent rotor straightening and cutting machines of the MELC Flexiline series using Eurobend’s 4G rotor with hyperbolically profiled rollers and the patented wire convergence system ensure perfect straightening and length accuracies and allow automatic diameter changes within the same mesh within seconds. Thus, up to five different line wire and five different cross wire diameters can be welded within the same mesh.
The produced mesh is removed automatically through a mesh stacking and roller conveyor system.
The PL XY AMM welding line can be equipped with different configurations of bending stations in order to automatically bend the line and cross wire overhands in any order, depending on the mesh characteristics.
