RAS machines for: Elevators and escalators

Multibend-Center: Bending elevators (MiniFeeder loading)

With this flexible bending system, elevator wall panels up to 3040 mm in length can be automatically bent. A roller table pulls the punched blanks from an upstream Pivatic punching system and aligns them. Part dimensions and bending geometry can vary from part to part. The RAS MiniFeeder loading component feeds the blanks to the RAS Multibend Center. The panels are automatically positioned and bent on the bending center, and the tool change also sets up the tools automatically. The finished wall elements reach the downstream robot welding station via a conveyor table.

Automated folding of elevator panels

The Société Giennoise de Chaudronnerie (SGC) is a job shop for sheet metal parts equipped with state-of-the-art production machines. The company focuses on automation and specializes in elevator components. With the RAS Multibend-Center, SGC not only operates an extremely productive bending center but has also connected this bending cell to an automated storage system and loads the blanks with their own robotic solution.

Bending four-sided elevator automatically

The video shows the panel bender Multibend-Center RAS 79.31-2 folding elevator doors. The panel bender first bends the long sides followed by the short sides of the elevator door panel. Flexibility and speed are extremely impressive.

Kit production of elevators

The MiniFeeder is an automation component for the RAS Multibend-Center. During the elevator kit production at Otis in Spain, the 9 panels of an elevator car are provided to the bending center stacked on a pallet. A scanner reads the barcode, attached to each blank and loads the bending program. The MiniFeeder automatically activates the number of suction cups matching the blank width.

Trumpf-RAS: Bending elevator doors

The video shows the direct connection between a TruPunch 3000 and a Multibend-Center RAS 79.26-2 at a Thyssen elevator group company in China. The RAS MiniFeeder pulls the blanks from the punching table. The intelligent loading robot (no teaching, no programming) flips the blanks before they get to the panel bender.
