Most commonly used in:
Very fast and extremely accurate TCC-25 LM chipless cut-off machine uses Linear Feeding system for cutting tubes to length up to 236”.
The machine has been designed to cutting the raw material fed from coil. The cutting method is adapted for use with all malleable materials such as aluminium, copper and steel.
It also has the power that is needed to feed and straighten tubes up to diameter 1” or coiled steel tubing up to ½’’ diameter (Wall thicknesses between 0.012” – 0.118’’ )
By experience T-DRILL has found out that 3 m/s feeding speed and accelleration of 82 f/s2 are normally the maximum values – which if keeping in mind the cut-quality and length tolerances are very high compared to any other method.
What makes TCC-25 LM special is the ability to cut several cut-lengths automatically based on touch screen parameters. These different lengths will be sorted automatically after the cutting operation by the sorting table. The automatic cutting of different lengths is a useful function, when the assembly requireds several cut lengths from the same tube diameter.
Another useful application is to have single TCC-25 LM for cutting lenth tubes for several bending or endforming machines that are all making different parts.
The operator interface is a touch screen control panel. It includes advanced functions and diagnostics, which makes TCC-25 LM very easy to use – even for a non-skilled operator. From the control panel the operator can change settings and parameters.
It is likely that the industries will be using coils more frequently instead of straight length tubes. Coil sizes will also become larger. Tube diameters on coils will also likely to be larger and coiled steel tubing will be used more frequently. With TCC-25-LM linear motor based cut-off, a dedicated decoiling system, a straightener with quick changeable rolls and advanced software T-DRILL will meet the most of these demanding cut-off applications.
Linear motors provide direct linear motion wihout mechanical linkages as ball screws do. A permanent magnet linear motor can be thought of as a permanent magnet rotary motor, whose stator and rotor have been cut along a radial plane and unrolled so that it provides linear thrust.
The same forces of electromagnetism that produce torque in rotary motors are used to produce direct linear force in linear motors. The result is a flat linear motor that produces linear force, as opposed to torque, because the axis of rotation no longer exists.
The motors are typically supplied as construction kits. They include:
No backlash from leadscrews or other mechanical gearing and linkages
Force is generated through an air gap, so there is no metal-to-metal contact and no wear
Only one moving part, no mechanical linkages
No travel limits, as long as faltness and straightness are maintained
Linear motors provide low to high velocities. From 1 micron per second to 350m/min
Very high – upt to 10 G’s and more
Provides smooth operation because they don’t rely on mechanical linkages
Accuracy and repeatability:
Dubmicron accuracy when coupled with an appropriate feedback device. ± 0.001 mm positioning accuracy achievable
Static force up to 22,000 N/motor
Almost entirely maintenance free
Under normal specified operating conditions, life expectancy can be indefinite.
