PS 50 AUTOFEED CNC Shearing Machine System
PS 50 AUTOFEED CAN DYNAMICALLY INCREASE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF YOUR SHEARING, PUNCHING OR STAMPING OPERATION.
The operator simply loads a blank onto PS 50 CNC Shearing Machine, locks it in place with pneumatic grippers, and sets the feed in motion. The CNC 300 control system automatically triggers the shear, punch or stamping machine.
PS 50 CNC Shearing Machine utilizes the CNC 300 Autogauge control system
It features 300 job storage, shop-rugged LED display, and an RS232 computer interface
SIMPLE TO PROGRAM
No programming or tape prep experience is required. The operator simply enters a load position, and desired punch or shear dimensions. Once the advance key is depressed the blank is moved into position for the first operation and the shear or punch is activated. When the ram reaches top of stroke the PS 50 CNC Shearing Machine advances the material to the next step until the piece is complete. It then returns the grippers to the load position for unloading and loading of the next piece.
SAFER SHEAR FEED CONTROL
The operator’s hands are kept free of the punch or shear and reduced handling of material reduces chance of injury.
MORE ACCURATE GAUGING
Gauging from the front of the device using one reference point on the work-piece eliminates cumulative tolerance buildup experienced with backgauging. All dimensions will tolerance within + /-.002” of the original reference.
The key to a reshearing operation lies in (2) 1/8” punched holes that you program into the CNC punch program a specified distance from your punched pattern. When loading to the PS 50, these (2) holes provide an accurate reference to the punched pattern so that shear cuts are precisely registered and operator error is eliminated. This method is more efficient than shaker parts for the following reasons.
- Straight line cuts are better done on a shear than a punch as nibble marks are eliminated.
- Deburring of edges is significantly reduced.
- Premature shaking apart is eliminated.
- CNC punch time is transferred to the less costly to operate shearing Machine. Usually, a single operator can be assigned to a cell so that the shear is parting out the multiple parts while the CNC punch is creating the next punched blank.
- Parts can be grouped closer on the blank so that the leading edge of one row can be the trailing edge of the next. This means extra row of parts can often be added to blanks to reduce scrap.
STRIP CUTTING MACHINE
Another application for PS 50 CNC Shearing Machine is fast, accurate blanking of multiple pieces from a large sheet. The operator handles the piece only once and need not worry about hitting a backgauge accurately on each cut. In this case, reference holes are not required.
COMPUTER INTERFACE WITH THE CNC 300 CONTROL SYSTEM
An RS232 I/O with software is included. Jobs can be uploaded, downloaded, programmed and stored at your P.C.
