3 MAIN BENEFITS
The three main benefits of this layout are:
Due to an optimized internal production flow, enhanced knurling, insertion and crimping processes, and reduced waste emission, this layout is designed to be installed in confined areas.
Production processes are optimized, which ensures low costs as well as reduced risk of damages. The inexpensive machines and manual conveyors of layout 40 maximize efficiency, reducing manual labor and handling costs.
Easy to use
Direct your production process with a smart and simple layout of your machines. Layout 40 ensures quick start-up of thermal break assembly machines due to their ease of use. The operator staff, trained or not, can easily handle the equipment.
- Knurling using an aluminum profile knurling machine
- Polyamide strips insertion using an assembly machine for aluminum profiles with polyamide strips.
- Rolling (or crimping) using a crimping machine to tighten the grooves of the aluminum profile on the polyamide strips.
MAIN MACHINES INCLUDED IN THIS LAYOUT
1 – Knurling machine for aluminum extrusions
Easy knurling adjustments, knurling narrow or wide extrusion.
The first step, knurling, is performed by a knurling machine for aluminum profiles. In this layout, you can use the manual knurling machine (AS-140-Z) or the CNC knurling machine (AS-142-Z).
The operator puts the extrusion in the knurling machine and after that, the knurling machine brings the finished extrusion into the next station.
A system of guide rollers supports profiles that are not straight, ensuring high knurling precision.
2 – Thermal break insertion machine
The second step, insertion, is performed by a thermal break insertion machine. In this layout, you can use the manual insertion machine (AS-242I) or the CNC insertion machine (AS-244I).
The thermal break insertion machine is used to insert polyamide strips into the grooves of aluminum profiles. Four motorized rotors prevent the polyamide strips from stacking during insertion.
3 – Crimping machine for polyamide strips
Profile guidance during crimping for higher stability.
The third step, crimping, is performed by an aluminum profile crimping machine. In this layout, you can use the manual crimping machine (AS221GA) or the CNC crimping one (AS260GA or AS262GA), which enables profile switching within 20 seconds.
This is the most important step in the production of aluminum profiles with thermal break, as it guarantees the quality of the final product. During this final step, the aluminum extrusions and the polyamide strips are firmly crimped to avoid any subsequent shearing.
OEMME S.p.A. has been manufacturing punches and machines for working and assembling light alloy systems since 1978. The company offers the complete array of machines required for thermal break profile assembly guaranteeing very high quality standards and reliability.
