New strategic partnership between Pivatic and RAS

03/22/2021

The aim of the strategic partnership is to offer to customer the strengths and advantages of the two industrial entities Pivatic Oy and RAS Reinhardt Maschinenbau GmbH and to strengthen both competitive position in the sheet metal machine tool markets. For Pivatic the co-operation with RAS brings wider product offering and higher flexibility for bending solutions specially with small and medium size volumes in sheet metal manufacturing.

RAS Reinhardt Maschinenbau GmbH and Pivatic Oy has been announced a strategic partnership. Both RAS bending centers and Pivatic punching systems have been known and established on the sheet metal machine tool market for decades. In the new cooperation model, the two companies contribute their know-how in punching and bending and offering lines for their customers as a joint solution.

With the unique Pivatic-RAS solution, two sheet metal processing technologies are integrated in a single production line: coil feeding or sheet punching by Pivatic and bending by RAS. Compared to other traditional systems, the material only moves once through the Pivatic punching line and the result is a punched part that is produced faster than any other traditional solutions.

This punching speed in combination with the bending speed and flexibility of the RAS bending centers leads to an automated flexible production solution that is characterized by low cycle times, high productivity, low logistics and handling costs, high design freedom in part construction and low costs per part.The integrated line is very compact and requires only a minimum of floor space. Due to the flexibility of both technologies, this modular line is suitable for large production batches as well as for small and medium quantities.

The punching process can start from sheets or from coils. The Pivatic punching machines can process coils from the width of 60mm up to 1825mm and from the sheets from 200mm up to 1825mm. Pivatic additional cut-to-length (CTL) and cut-to-length (CTW) integrated shears deliver precise and long cuts for the bending process. The RAS bending module can consist of one of the three bending centers with maximum working lengths of 2160mm, 2560mm and 3060mm. After bending, the finished panels can be forwarded in subsequent lines as automatic welding or stacking.

The control system software organizes the data communication to the machines of the production line, send information to an ERP system and creates statistical data. State-of-the-art technology meets industry standard 4.0. The programming of the punching and bending processes is based on 3D and 2D CAD drawings can also be carried out automatically.

The list of benefits of the common solution is long. The direct linking between the main processes reduces the logistical effort and improves the material flow, which has an economic impact, especially in the case of large components with small quantities. As a result of the linking, a finished bent product is always created after one pass and no stock of semi-finished products accumulates between punching and bending. The automated processes reduce human intervention and possible errors or damage during handling.

The largely synchronized processes during punching and bending increase throughput and efficiency, which ultimately also leads to lower part costs. Since up to 120 punching tools are accessible at the same time during punching, there are practically no tool change times. The challenging scrap skeleton handling is also eliminated with this approach.

At the RAS bending center, the punched blanks are automatically turned if necessary and then loaded, aligned, positioned, bent and unloaded. Automatic tool set-up and bending up and down without turning the part are an important matter of course. The automatic bending sequences ensure maximum precision and repeatability, which is also suitable for laser welding. Bending without damage to the surface of the material and without tool wear are outstanding properties, especially in stainless steel applications.

Pivatic, based in Finland, was founded in 1975 and is part of the Ursviken Group. Over 450 sheet metal processing systems are convincing proof of the efficiency in automatic punching.

RAS looks back on more than 80 years of experience in sheet metal processing and completes the systems with its bending centers.

Pivatic: The Future of Bending Technology

In sheet metal fabrication, integrating automated systems represents a significant leap forward in manufacturing efficiency and product quality. Traditional methods, which often involve manual labor and standalone machines, are increasingly being replaced by integrated solutions that streamline the entire production process. This shift enhances the speed of production and drastically reduces the potential for human error, leading to a higher standard of product consistency and quality.
At the forefront of this innovation are systems like the PivaSystem, which combine punching, cutting, and bending operations into a single streamlined process. This integration allows for the handling of various production stages without the need to transfer materials between different machines. The result is a seamless flow from one process to the next, minimizing handling time, reducing material waste, and optimizing floor space usage.

Thank you for participating in Pivatic-Vaski Technology Days 2024!

Thank you to all visitors (and registrees) of Pivatic-Vaski Technology Days 2024! We were pleased to see even more participants than last time as we had kept the quality of our presentations at an excellent level.

In addition to Pivatic technologies, visitors also got a closer look at the Pivatic’s new owner Vaski Group Oy, and the sheet metal and flat bar products Vaski produces. Thanks to our sales partners Samesor, Ursviken Technology, and Wilson Tooling for the great presentations. To all our customers and agents, we will get back to you on the conversations that we had during the event.

Pivatic Technology Days 2024

Pivatic is hosting a Technology Days event on the 28th and 29th of May in Hyvinkää, Finland during the best spring season in Finland. This time we will focus on large precision sheet metal parts (over 4m up to 16m) punching from coil, blanks, MPB bending with C-frame and T-frame concepts, and integrated Samesor roll forming and Ursviken tandem press brakes. On the 30th of May, Pivatic’s new owner, Vaski Group Oy, will present their products and software at Hyvinkää.
We would like to invite you to join the event! Pivatic will pay for the accommodation, food & beverages during the days. The flights and local travel from and back to the airport will be your responsibility.
We can guarantee that you will gain a lot of new ideas from this event. All our experts are here to support you.
