Bent zintec gear chassis
A view of a small zintec folded tray which had been bent up on one of our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes. All the bends were achieved from one set up and all bend lengths and angles saved on our network server for call back whenever the part is repeated. Having 2 of the CNC press brakes with identical program software and tooling enables us to move jobs around to suit work flow and keep machine down time to a minimum.
Mild steel angle brakets
Simple mild steel angle brackets that have been laser cut and CNC bent up waiting to have a press stud inserted before zinc plating and passivating. These parts are simple yet we used to have to guillotine the blank size then use a corner notcher to produce the 2 angles sizes, a radius flypress tool to crop the end rad, deburr the edges, flypress the holes and then set up a bending machine to produce a part like this. Now its just laser cut and CNC bent, job done, now that’s progress.
Zintec CNC punched brackets
Here’s a nice example of inline tagging being used on a CNC punch press. Each part is tagged at the end where the bracket comes to a point but it is also tagged in 2 places on each side where it touches its neighbour. This is achieved by using a special CNC punch tool shaped a little bit like a bow tie. The diamond shaped tags that are left when the component is broken out of the nest are not sharp and can easily be knocked off the side of the components. The components are bent up in the nest and sent to the customer ready for them to break out, saving bend time and break out time keeping the cost down for the final part.
