Customer’s query

Infeed and outfeed of steel sheets between various sheet and plate metal forming machines

Challenges

A well-established company in the steel industry was looking for a productive solution to the infeed and outfeed of steel sheets between various sheet and plate metal forming machines. The following specific issues had to be addressed: Varying dimensions up to 7 m in length and 2.5 m in width; various pick and drop positions; a 24/7 continuous production process; possible installation of additional machines; future changes in the work layout; operator environment,…

Solution

RDL Engineering opted for an Automatic Guided Vehicle equipped with the following functions: Roller conveyor and chain conveyor for drop and pick, lifting system, sheet aligning system for both lengthwise adjustment and centre adjustment of the chain conveyor, turntable function, inching function and motorised adjustable mounting feet for AGV levelling. As an added value we also opted for a supply station with a tipper, thus allowing the client to decide whether or not to have the sheets tilted.
