Description

The Whitney 3400XP Combination Machine Tool uses the fastest technologies to make parts – Punching and Plasma Cutting.

  • Punched holes provide accurate internal features.
  • It is faster to punch holes than to pierce and contour holes with plasma or laser.
  • External features are plasma cut. Advanced plasma-cutting technology provides highly productive contouring (much faster than laser) with high quality.
    • Small kerf angle (vertical cuts)
    • Dross-free cutting
  • Additional features such as forming (countersinks, tread plate, louvers), drilling and tapping can be added to eliminate additional downstream operations, allowing parts to be completed in a single operation.

Manufacturing costs are lower using the combination machine technology.

  • Labor costs are lower because it takes significantly less time to manufacture the parts.
  • Operating costs are lower.
  • Amortization of capital costs is significantly lower since
  • Lower initial capital cost than laser
  • Faster cycle time – Cost of capital per fabricated part is lower because capital costs are amortized over more fabricated parts.

The PROFIT-DOUBLER

  • Higher profit per part —lower overall cost per piece gives a higher profit margin per piece.
  • More parts generating profit—more parts are produced (in the same amount of time) on a combination machine, so there are more parts generating profit than on the other technologies.

PartHANDLER-II INTEGRATED LOAD/UNLOAD SYSTEMLoad Function: Raw material is stacked at the designated location at the left-hand rear side of the press. Programmable magnets lift a single piece of the raw material and place it into the work clamps. The work clamps position the left-hand side of the work piece to a zero point as measured by the edge detection sensor. The machine performs an automatic reposition to re-zero the plate relative to the work clamp locations.

Large Parts Unloading Function: Finished parts that are larger than 24” x 60” (600 x 1525mm) are picked out of the skeleton after they are cut and moved to a location on the left-hand front side of the press. CNC code selects the magnets, pick-up location, and drop-off location. With this flexibility, the programmer can stack identical parts and sort dissimilar parts together in a common area.

Small Parts Unloading Function: Small finished parts up to 24” x 60” (600 x 1525 mm) are removed through the SMALL PARTS DROP DOOR of the 3400XP. These parts fall into a container supplied by the customer. The container can be removed to the front of the machine when it becomes full. An optional small parts conveyor brings the parts to the front of the machine.

Skeleton Removal Function: After all the parts have been cut, the finished skeleton is removed. An automatic double drop SKELETON REMOVAL TABLE deposits the finished skeleton onto a pallet located beneath the right-hand side table.
