Metal Sheet

CMZ is able to offer cutting-edge solutions in the field of automatic machines for the processing of metal sheet, particularly for machines such as:

  • Flying shear applications
  • Deformation
  • Processing with ISO interpreter (G-CODE)

We offer as an example the operation of a machine running the flying shear

A common functionality required by many automatic machines is the possibility to do same actions (cutting, punching or other) on a continuous material in movement
(metal sheet, cartoon, etc) without stopping it. This functionality can be done in two ways:
- Cut with translating carriage
The tools is mounted on a carriage, which is moved by a motor, and when the length of the material arrived at a certain value, the carriage starts and reaches the speed of the material, so it is possible to do the required processing on it. When the operation is completed, the carriage comes back to the initial point.
- Cut with rotating shearThe cutting tool is a rotating shear that does a cut every turn. The device begins to rotate when the material length arrives at a certain value and its peripheral speed becomes equal to the material speed when the cutting tool touches the material. After the cut the rotating shear slows and comes back to the initial point.

There are many particularities and options in this basic function, such as the cutting referred to a mark, continuous cutting, multiple cutting, etc.

CMZ, for this application offers a big variety of solutions, hardware and software.

For the hardware point of view all CMZ controllers can be used in these applications, with a complete range of motors and drives.

For the software point of view CMS offers a specific library for standard applications, instead for special applications the electronic cam library is normally used.

The controller that executes the flying shear function , can manage other axes, allowing the implementation of complex machines in integrated way.
