FINN-POWER, represented in Australia by Advanced Sheetmetal Technologies , has released a new 'Compact Express' turret punch press with very high production capacity and performance that can work perfectly within a 3m x 1500mm working range.
The FINN-POWER C6 Compact Express has a full three-metre punching area that requires no repositioning during operation.
Based on FINN-POWER's Shear Genius Series technology, it can work efficiently in corners, and for increased operating speeds it has a rack and pinion configuration on the X axes and double ball screw on the Y-axis.
This new construction of the X and Y axes allows higher acceleration and faster sheet positioning than has been achievable in the past. Its index system with separate motors in both gears is fast and accurate.
Brush tables, central lubrication and PCS are standard features. Digital punch control, 30 ton punching and 20 station turret (allowing for the possibility of over 120 tools in the turret) with newest tooling options combined to provide versatile, high performance punching capacity.
The C6 turret punch press is available as a FINN-POWER Express unit with automatic loading and unloading. Electrical loading device is equipped as standard with sheet separation, double sheet detection and sheet squaring functions. C6 Express is connectable to all FINN-POWER Flexible Manufacturing Systems.
Optional indexable upforming allows complicated forming and bending applications. An optional 500mm x 500mm work chute with conveyor retrieves parts directly to a pallet.
Up-and-down movement of clamps with table segment provides easy loading of sheets. For simplified loading of smaller sheets, three extra gauge pins are supplied.
Technical aspects of the C6 include: 300kn ram force, 20-piece tool stations in turret, a punch diameter maximum of 89mm, material thickness maximum of 8mm, sheet size X x Y maximum of 3048mm x 1524mm and sheet weight maximum of 200kg.
Maximum positioning speed is 150m/min, tool change time 1-3 seconds, CNC control is a Siemens Sinumerik 840D and the overall weight of the machine is 13,000kg.
