It was a not-everyday-request that we got from an American manufacturer for school furnitures. He wants to insert 16 dowels on each side with 1 step.
The solution was to rebuilt and modify an existing Nottmeyer machine chassis.
The very heavy duty base machine is perfect to realize a high cycle production and a perfect accuracy at the same time.
This new line will exchange an old existing line at the customer and so this new line needed to have the exact same length so it was easy to have a fast set up without moving other machines in that existing line.
The new line is existing of 2 main machines: The througfeed boring machine and the throughfeed dowel inserting machine. The electric of these machine was designed according to the special US standards. The control of these machines can be done by a Siemens Touchscreen.
The customer made his decision for this line because of high capacity and safety in production over years and years. If needed, spare parts are available at once.
