6.9 Pneumatic transport chain tensioning

Tension, not strain! T

he original mechanism for transport chain tensioning involved chains and counterweights, and was very complex in design. Furthermore, constant readjustment was necessary during operation. A pneumatic cylinder can now replace this complex mechanism. The tensioning pressure is adjusted finely by way of a pressure regulator. The pneumatic cylinder guarantees constant power transmission to the chain tensioning lever and compensates variations in the operating conditions. The retrofit solution is simple to install in existing unloading machines.

The advantages

  • Constant power transmission
  • Constant chain tension
  • Fewer mechanical parts
  • Simple installation

Your benefits

  • No need for readjustment
  • Longer service life of the transport chain
  • Reduced maintenance outlay
  • Low installation costs

Line safety is further enhanced by sensor monitoring and fine adjustment by way of pressure regulators. This retrofit incorporates the pneumatic chain tensioning device of Upgrade 6.9.

The advantages

  • Controlled sheet transport out of the unloading machine
  • Pneumatic pressure control instead of springs
  • Fewer mechanical parts
  • Pneumatic chain tensioning

Your benefits

Through the use of cams made of highperformance plastic for the vibrating suction unit and the roller pulse generator, the service life of the cams is increased and thus the productivity of the feeder improved. In many respects, cams made of highperformance plastic are superior to comparable components made of steel. In particular, the outstanding damping behaviour reduces the mechanical load significantly, especially with high-speed cams.

The advantages

  • Significantly higher wear resistance and durability than cams made of steel
  • Lower mass moment of inertia than steel through weight reduction of approx. 70%
  • Noise reduction compared with cams and rollers made of steel

Minimise the maintenance needed for your metal sheet feeder!

The mechanical rotary piston for controlling the suction unit and separating air, with its wear-prone cams and roller switches, is replaced by a valve block. The valves are actuated by a preset electronic cam controller and an incremental angle encoder, which detects the exact position of the feeder. If required, the setting can be adjusted to production conditions on site.

The advantages

  • The scheduled removal and cleaning of the rotary piston and filter can be dispensed with
  • Easy replacement of the electropneumatic valves
  • No more blocking of the rotary piston

8.5 Continuous pile lift

Optimise your feeding operations!

Through the installation of the continuous pile lift, the distance between the top edge of the pile and the suction unit is always the same. This reduces jams in the feeder, because it becomes less likely that the front edge of the sheet should catch at the entrance to the feed table. The drive motor with mechanical brake is replaced by an inverter-controlled motor, which – in compliance with the provisions of directive DIN 13849 – also assumes the braking function.

The advantages

  • Continuous infeed of the plate pile
  • Especially recommended for aluminium and for scroll sheets
  • No mechanical motor brake required

Your benefits

  • Fewer jams
  • Improvement in quality and productivity
  • Greater flexibility
  • Reduction of maintenance

8.7 Stop & Turn pile lifting

Easy alignment of the pile of sheets!

Thanks to the installation of the new Stop & Turn pile lifting device, a pile of sheets that was not placed on the roller conveyor at right angles can subsequently be aligned. The pile of sheets is aligned with the front stop rails by means of an automated turning mechanism. It is no longer necessary to move the pile of sheets back and forth manually. Retrofitting is especially recommended for machines standing on a base, since this means that no foundation work is necessary.

The advantages

  • Automatic alignment of the pile of sheets
  • Especially recommended for alternating operating personnel

Your benefits

  • Reduction of makeready times to a minimum
  • Improvement in quality and productivity

 

Product informations (PDF)

8.8 Side blast air

Optimise your feeding operations!

Through the installation of side blast air nozzles, an air cushion is created between the plates at the front of the pile area. The improved separation of sheets reduces the number of jams, particularly in the case of sheets with high adhesion. The position of the nozzle can be adjusted laterally and in height.

The advantages

  • Improved separation of the sheets
  • Fewer jams

Your benefits

  • Number of waste sheets reduced to a minimum
  • Higher production speed possible

8.9 Ultrasonic double-sheet detector

Ultrasonic double-sheet detector for the feeder – You better check!

High adhesion forces between metal sheets can lead to imperfect sheet separation and hence double-sheets at the infeed. The consequence: Expensive waste or even damage to the press and unplanned downtime.

The double-sheet detector scans the stream of metal sheets. In this way, two or more sheets which lie on top of each other can be detected reliably and ejected automatically. Such doublesheets are detected in a contact-free process using a high-frequency ultrasonic sensor. The extremely fast response guarantees safe detection and ejection even at high running speeds.

8.10 Pneumatic package for feeder

Pneumatic package for feeder 770, 780 and 4050 – Let it flow!

At Koenig & Bauer, we are working continuously on innovations to further improve your printing and coating lines. With our hardware upgrades you stay up-to-date with the latest technological developments. In that way you continue to decorate metal sheets to the highest standards.

Every feeder needs for its operation a lot of suction air and blast air. A good and reliable air supply is particularly required for separating and lifting the sheets from the pile as well as for smooth sheet transportation into the infeed table. To meet increasingly demanding expectations we have re-engineered and improved important components that are critical to a perfect air supply, e.g. by using exceptionally durable control valves. All to make your printing or coating lines even more reliable, productive and stable.

9.E1 Modern control and drive system

Electronics can also grow old!

The availability of spare parts for PS3/PS4 PLC controllers by Klöckner-Möller can no longer be guaranteed. The relevant software is not consistently supported either. With this upgrade, the PLC controller as well as the Synchro line synchronisation system will be converted to the latest Siemens S7 controller with Lenze drive technology, currently available worldwide. The display and operating system on each printing unit will also be modernised. In printing lines, a special PLC program developed by KBA automates the startup of the individual press functions. New technologies like remote maintenance will assist you during troubleshooting.

The advantages

  • Modern Siemens S7 controller with worldwide availability
  • Frequency converter with asynchronous three-phase AC motor
  • Modern drive concept

10.7 Solvent blade

A perfect solution!

The solvent blade removes a possible varnish layer from the counterpressure cylinder, particularly with highly pigmented, abrasive varnishes. A diaphragm pump pumps solvent into the holder, which is fitted with felt strips. This is pneumatically thrown onto the counterpressure cylinder to guarantee uniform contact pressure. The partially dissolved varnish is scraped off the counterpressure cylinder by an additional doctor blade, which is also pressed pneumatically, and fed into a collecting tank and reintroduced into the cleaning cycle. The result is that the back of the sheet is clean.

The advantages

  • No varnish residue on the counterpressure cylinder or on the backs of the sheets
  • Reduced wear on the doctor blades
  • Easy replacement of the cleaning and doctor blade unit
  • Simple operation and adjustment since the solvent blade is thrown on pneumatically

Your benefits

  • Improvement in quality – less waste
  • Cost reduction through longer use of the doctor blade
  • Optimised set-up time
