Kinefac Introduces Robo-Roller Thread and Form Rolling System
According to the companys press release, this enables the Robo-Roller user to provide automated rolling from a pallet system as shown at IMTS, bulk feed unit, hopper feed, manual load-unload station or in conveyorized system, as shown in the picture without safety guarding. It can handle parts weighing up to 3 lbs. provided there is some grippable feature.
The Kine-Trol computer numerical control rolling and part handling system on the Kine-Roller provides complete operator support to specify the thread size, thread length, and rolling die specifications, establish the rolling cycle and the die match. Robot programs are set up using a teaching pendant and are then stored.
Each die spindle has an independent servo drive system allowing numerically programmed rotational die match. The heavy-duty spindle and die actuation system has a maximum radial die load up of 70,000 lbs. and can accommodate dies up to 6 3/4" diameter and 4" face.
