At the forthcoming bauma exhibition, which will take place in Munich, Germany, from April 8 to14, Eurobend will present, on stand 325 in Hall C3, a PLT B Ladder machine, the latest generation of compact welding lines for the production of ladder-type “S” spacers.
The PLT B Ladder series of welding lines ensures reliable operation and the cost-effective production of ladder-type “S” spacers from coils.
Together with the compact layout, the sophisticated design of each machine component enables minute adjustments to the different product sizes as well as long maintenance intervals.
Variable cross-wire spacing
The “T”-type welding heads produce welded “T” spacers which, unlike the conventional “S” spacers with overlap welding, can be easily stacked into compact bundles without having to be turned.
Significant material savings
In the production of 100-mm “S” spacers, savings in vertical spacer wire amount to between 22% and 33% thanks to the “T”-welding process.
The unique and patented bending system ensures excellent repeatability and perfect product geometry, working in line with the welding operation in order to eliminate idle times during production. The bending system uses synchronized, pneumatically operated bending units.
Incorporated into the bending system, a flexible automatic stacking unit produces bundles of the programmed quantity of strip spacers during production.
Flexible and unsupervised operation
The machine’s sophisticated control systems enable unsupervised operation. The operator is only required to feed the machine with new coils and to remove the completed strapped bundles from the buffer table.
