Loading and unloading systems

Chain barloader

The automatic warehouse is a loading device for bars and profiles; it’s a fully customizable and integrated system developed by our engineering team for automatic bandsaws. The warehouse allows to load many bars at the same time (number depends on customer’s preferred configuration) and it’s managed and controlled by independent consolle coordinated with machines CNC to create an integrated cycle that optimize the user professional workflow.

The warehouse is made by a modular structure with adjustable loading cells for bar with different sizes. The system uses motoreducer while sliding are provided by rack and pignons.

Material blocking system stop the bar with two horizontal rollers while a vertical rollers system provides for material alignment.

The number of loading stations (each divided by vertical pegs) is customizable depending on the user’s needs and the productivity he needs to have.

Once the bar is in position (two photocells read the position), a milling group with 2 horizontal rollers covered with vulkollan push the material inside feeder vice.

NC panel control (mounted on independent consolle) optimze the material loading management up to the correct posistioning in the feeder.

Loading system is sinchronized and works together with bandsaw controller to create an integrated cycle made by bar loading, material feeding, bow movment and sawing.

The user can choose between metallic grilled protection or metallic grilled protection plus safety photocells for maximum operator security while the system is working.

Gravity barloader

SLB 3000-6000 (available with length of 3000mm and 6000mm) is an automatic sliding barloader managed by the machine CNC and compatible with all the Imet automatic circular saw (Sirio 370 AF-NC and VELOX 350 AF-NC) to process tube bars with a section between 20mm and 90mm on round, 80x80mm maximum on square tube and 50mm of diameter on solid bars.

RIgid and resistant structure made with metallic welded and screwed profiles.

Frontal part of the roller table is protected by carter made with tubolars and perforated metal sheet.

Back part allows to access the unloading slide (which inclination can be regulated) with depth is 750 mm.

It’s available an adjustable superior guide for small diameters (from 10 to 20 mm).

Once a bar has been processed, another bar is lifted up from the slide by supports managed by a pneumatic cylinder and it’s transferred on the feeding roller table.

A motorized wheel provides for loading the bar inside the feeder vice and block it; once the bar is placed in the right position, the wheel goes back to its original posistion.

The cycle restarts with the first cut, then with the set cutting process.

Bundleloader

Bundle loader is a loading system managed by machine CNC and it’s dedicated to use bundle of tubes and bars with automatic circular saws. The loader allows to use materials with a 2000 mm minìmum length and it’s available in two version: up to 6m or 12m.

The bundle loader is made by a structure with 5 supporting posts and a single loading belt with a total capacity of 4000 kg (for the standard 6m version).

Material loading is possible thanks to 5 loading lever managed by hydraulic motor; Belt lifting is provided by motor and reducer: once the the bundle is lifted up, the material is deposited on the horizontal tracks that provide for its movement to the anti-overlap system.

To avoid the possibilty that the bar could be overlapped and loaded at the same time, there are 5 control sensors with regulation of the anti-overlapping system throught two handwheels.

Both belt rising and descending system is provided by micro-switch, while central regulation allows to change the diameters of the material that must be used.

Loading capacity for round tube is 12 mm minimum, 120 mm maximum; squadre tube min. capacity is 12x12mm, maximum 110x110 mm, rectangular 120x100mm.

Bundle loader is a usefull tool that can optimize the working process of the Imet automatic circular saws SRIO 370 AF-NC e VELOX 350 AF-NC. Thanks to the CNC system, it’s possibile to load bundle up to 6000 mm.

Longest compatible bundle length upon request is 12 meters.

Structure in metallic welded and screwed profiles with upper part of the roller table covered by a metal sheet carter to prevent injuries.

Once a bundle has been processed, another one is lifted up from the slide by supports managed by a pneumatic cylinder and it’s transferred on the feeding roller table. A motorized wheel provides for loading the material inside the feeder vice and block it; once it’s placed in the right position, the wheel goes back to its original posistion.The cycle restarts with the first cut, then with the set cutting process.
