The FPB-1800 CNC plate punching machine from Peddinghaus (Bradley, IL) is a supplementary plate cutting and punching solution designed to process parts up to 1 ¼ inches (25 mm) thick. The system includes structural steel plate processing, SignoScript carbide scribing, Hypertherm plasma cutting, a triple-tool punch press, roller feed measurement, and a side unloading system or front end unloading system.
The 177-ton, triple-tool punch press of the FPB-1800 is capable of punching holes up to 1 ¾ inches (44 mm) in diameter and maintains up to three available punch stations, minimizing required tool changes. The machine has a soft c-frame design, ensuring accurate punch positioning and eliminating risk of the punch colliding with the die and damaging the tooling.
The side unloader parts conveyor is designed to allow finished parts (up to 1,000 lbs) to drop directly onto a hardened steel conveyor, and transfers parts while the machine is in continuous operation. The side unloader, integrated with two 6-foot roller modules, facilitates the automated removal of both short and long parts. Smaller parts are unloaded directly onto the slide unloader and delivered to the operator station. This option also comes equipped with a retract system, allowing for easy access to the operating area and scrap cart beneath the machine.
The front end unloader conveyor system consists of two roller transfer modules, each six feet in length, and a front end unloading belt. This is designed to streamline the handling of finished parts by conveying them from the operating area to an unloading area. This option also includes the retract system for easy access to the operating area and scrap cart beneath the machine.
