Lohmeyer will present at LIGNA a fully automatic Nesting line with label printer and handling of half format panels.
A hydraulic lifting table (load 3,000 kg) automatically lifts the panels to the level of label printing, forwards the panel and automatically aligns it at the correct position. At the loading station the workpiece is seized by two vacuum suction cups and transported safely and gently to the working table. The drilling block is equipped with 10 vertical drills. At the automatic unloading station the workpiece is exactly positioned by an optoelectronic sensor and gently transported on the conveyor belt.
Touch probe and tool holder ensure an efficient and uncomplicated tool adjustment and change. Chips and dust are perfectly extracted from the working table via central suction points at the top and bottom side, when the workpiece is removed and conveyed to the unloading station. Thanks to automatic lubrication of the loading station and the CNC machining center the maintenance requirement remains very low.
The efficient Nesting software for shop floor oriented programming of CNC-direkt meets all requirements such as import of XML files, automatic generating of G codes, reworking of workpieces, optimizing processes, labelling of individual workpieces and other features like designing of workpieces within the panel. The system accepts standard XML files and offers open interfaces for connecting with almost all common furniture software systems. The XML format is freely accessible for the customer.
