Manual Rollover Positioners for Welding

Bluco Corporation’s manual rollover positioners can be used as stand-alone fixturing solutions, or complement your existing Bluco fixturing system.  With 360 degrees of rotation, the welder has full access to all sides of the part. And because the rotation is clocked in 22.5 degree increments (custom increments available), the part can always be located at the ideal weld position of each joint.  There are several styles and lengths of positioners available to suit your application.

Deburr Both Sides of Sheet Metal in One Operation

Double-sided deburring of metal sheets up to 0.2" thick can be achieved in a single pass with no additional treatment. CS Unitec’s ROLEI BE-5 deburring machine has 2 speeds, which enable fine deburring at 600 RPM or standard deburring at 1200 RPM. With standard 28" long guide rail extensions, or when placed on its side with roller tables, it can be used to deburr large, thin sheets. It is ideal for stainless steel, aluminum and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals.Two abrasive flap wheels rotate in opposite directions to grind both sides of the metal as it passes through. This deburrs both edges simultaneously. The flap wheels can be easily adjusted as they wear. One set of wheels lasts for approximately 6500 feet of stainless steel sheet.

Greiner is equipped for the really big structural steel fabrication jobs

We have the experienced craftsmen and the workspace to put it all together under one roof, from cold boxes to trusses to bridge girders. We can roll a beam up to 40 inches the “easy way,” and pipe up to 20 inches in diameter on one of the largest machines of its kind in the Eastern United States. The press brake at Greiner is no lightweight either: 2,750 tons of power with a 40-foot bed. Another asset to our capabilities is the 30-foot by 50-foot leveling bed, permanently installed in the shop floor. This unit allows workers to level to within fifteen thousandths of an inch.

At Greiner, we believe that highly skilled craftsmen deserve the best tools. Our AWS certified welders work with some of the finest equipment in their trade: MIG and TIG welders, inner and outer shield and submerged arc with manipulator. This combination of man and machine has resulted in AISC certifications for complex steel building structures and major steel bridges with fracture-critical and sophisticated paint endorsements.

LVD Strippit's ToolCell maximizes bending productivity

By reducing unproductive time through its automated tool changing capabilities, the ToolCell maximizes bending productivity and features an integrated storage of tooling, housed within the machine. Tools are precisely and automatically placed, eliminating manual tooling adjustments. While the operator is preparing parts for the next job, the machine automatically unloads the previous tool setup and loads the next setup.

ToolCell features LVD’s patented Easy-Form® Laser in-process angle monitoring and correction technology, ensuring consistency from the first to the last part. Easy-Form Laser uses measurement at the front and back of the die to determine the exact value of the angle of the workpiece. The sensing devices transmit information in real time to the CNC control unit, which processes it and subsequently recalculates the correct depth adjustment in process to obtain the correct angle. The bending process is not interrupted, and no production time is lost. ToolCell is offered with various configurable machine options.
