What is a Beam Drill Line? Beam drill lines are important tools in medium to large-sized structural fabrication shops. Beam drill lines accurately drill holes in a variety of steel profiles at different lengths with CNC controlled programming. These machines eliminate the need to manually chalk or layout the positions and produce the hole
Many fab shops are looking to invest in CNC machines with hopes of improving their speed, production rate, and accuracy. However, most machines currently on the market are not equipped to handle, the long or large parts, being produced by many of these shops.
Handheld grinders are powerful tools used in just about every metalworking environment. It is cumbersome and tiring work that puts considerable strain on the user. In a time where companies cannot afford lost time due to injuries, ergonomic solutions are now more important than ever.
Tapping can be difficult and frustrating. From broken taps to damaged threads, the process of tapping can slow down productivity and become very costly in the long run. There are a variety of tapping methods, and each comes with its own set of difficulties. Hand tapping Hand tapping is the simplest way to tap. This
This simple solution demonstrates how easy it is to integrate other lifting fixtures with a FlexArm manipulator arm.
This application utilizes a custom “C-clamp” style gripper paired with a PM 44-S to lift and manipulate a customer’s parts. The custom gripper is designed to grip 4 different parts, all of which are long and slender. Some of the parts had rectangular cross-sections, while others were cylindrical. All of the parts are 3 to
FlexArm Part Manipulators make lifting operations easier and safer for the operator. This application involves the PM-33S model arm with a custom end effector that utilizes a pneumatic gripper to pick and place 50 lb. parts into a tensile strength testing machine.
FlexArm’s manipulator arms are a great solution for eliminating the strain caused by lifting heavy loads or reaching into an enclosed area. This specific application helps the assembly process of an industrial fan manufacturer. FlexArm created an end effector to pick up motors with the PM-33A model arm. Before investing in a FlexArm, the customer
This application features FlexArm’s PM-22A model arm with a custom end effector that utilizes a long-stroke pneumatic gripper to pick up 6 different parts. This solution eliminates the customer’s current “buddy lift” protocol, making a two-person operation easily and efficiently accomplished by one. The weight of the parts ranges from 60-90 lbs. The controls for
See how this simple ergonomic solution prevents operator fatigue and repetitive motion injuries.
The FlexCNC produces parts faster than other CNC's. The Pendulum Mode lets an operator fixture parts while the machine is running resulting in 100% spindle uptime.
See how the FlexCNC-Long Bed VMC paired with Allied Insert Drills are speeding up drilling processes. Watch the time study to see which drill had a faster cycle time.
See how shops are saving time and money while increasing throughput by 300% with the FlexCNC and Allied Drills.
Learn how the Felker Bros. saved time and increased productivity by combining multiple steps into one process on the FlexCNC.
