Products with large openings with over 100% increased efficiency

05/10/2022

A large American manufacturer of HVAC products was looking to speed up their manufacturing process with the help of new punching technology. The company had previous experience with a Pivatic punching line installed in 2007, and had been punching some of their parts with the old line. The line delivery however allowed to replace existing standalone Turret Punch Presses to manufacture the parts with large openings with over 100% increased efficiency – reducing cycle times from 4-5 minutes down to 2 minutes. 

Customized solution to meet the client’s needs

The final layout solution for the line was customized based on the experiences from the first punching line. We were able to match the requests for the line with newly developed options in the last decade, or with a few small cost-efficient development projects. A modular line system was chosen to allow the components to be placed so that the space allocation in a cramped production hall would be optimal.

Significant improvement in productivity with new solutions

The highly efficient cycle times compared to previous systems were possible due to fully automated production from coiled sheet metal to punched and formed parts, and with the chosen punching technologies. A standard PivaPunch TT (Thick Turret) station equipped with A-F size tools pre-set in quick change cassettes were used to punch the smaller holes and the perforation needs. An indexable tool was used to prepare the edges for the large openings. A customized PivaPunch HT (Hard Tool or Press Tool) station was used to punch the large opening with 1 hit or 2 hits. For parts with no large openings, the press tooling can be changed to large Thick Turret tooling with forming capabilities. HT Station has two tool activators on both side for increased flexibility.

Alpemac Open House

Our sales partner in Italy, Alpemac Srl, is hosting BLECH DAYS from 16 to 19 November in their headquarters in Calcinato. It’s a unique opportunity to experience the main innovations presented by our technological partners at the Hannover World Fair but above all to seize the moment and still take advantage of the tax benefit of incentives for Industry 4.0 and CIM. Our CEO Mr. Jan Tapanainen is looking forward to meeting our customers during the event.
The highlight of the four-day event will be the wide range of machines and solutions ready for delivery which, from cutting to bending, will be exhibited, working, in the permanent showroom of the Alpemac headquarters to allow every possible buyer to get a grip of Alpemac technology.

Thank you EuroBLECH 2022

We would like to thank all visitors that we met at the EuroBLECH 2022 exhibition! We were pleased to notice remarkable interest in Pivatic sheet and coil punching solutions, bending solutions, and the integration possibilities with our partners Remmert, Samesor, Eagle, Ursviken, and RAS.

For you who we discussed further detail, we will get back to you within the coming days.

Eagle and Pivatic deepen their collaboration in coil-fed fiber laser cutting solutions  

Eagle is a Polish manufacturer specializing in state-of-the-art fiber laser cutting machines and automation systems, and Pivatic; a Finnish producer of tailored high-performance coil and blank punching, bending systems, and automation solutions.
The two European high-techs have been cooperating during the past two years to develop more efficient coil-fed cutting solutions, but 2022 has marked a milestone. Earlier this year, they delivered the first of these game-changing systems and have another delivery lined up for Europe.

EuroBLECH in Hannover, Germany on the 25 – 28 October

Meet us at EuroBLECH 2022 – Stand E136, Hall 11! We will be showcasing a fully automated servo-electric coil punching, cutting and pressing line on the stand. Highly efficient and indexable Thick Turret punching combined with a separate cutting station and a press tool station of 1200 kN punching force allows jobs like hole group, embossing, corner notching and trimming to be flexibly produced. Energy consumption for the full line is between 12-18 kWh, depending on the use of the big press, which is 60-70% less compared to traditional systems. This supports Pivatic’s low-energy product solutions well toward global sustainable development.

The line is bought by a German manufacturer who will receive the line after the exhibition with two coil cars, a turning drum, and a stacking device that are not present at EuroBLECH. The line is made in custom blue line color.
