Eurobend has reinforcing fabrication equipment matching each, including a) the Pro-suited straight-bar-fed flexible mesh welding line, or a fully automatic, coil-fed machine version (top) for more demanding precast operations, together with a flexible multi-line rotor straightening and cutting machine, an advanced rebar bender version and a shear line for processing larger diameters of straight bars; and, b) the Edge-ready high capacity package (left) with a flexible or high output, coil-fed mesh welding line, flexible multi-line rotor straightening and cutting machine, advanced rebar bender, and shear line for processing large diameter straight bars.
What's new: The Koham electric pruning shear line includes the Blue Pro model electric pruner and the Red Wizard model electric pruner.
We begin with a 128 x 128 phase dataset with one shear line located horizontally along the 13th row below the upper border.
The building program utilizes three floor plates that are cut in the short axis along a shear line, and displaced in sections to create six half levels, each with different technical and physical properties.
Lock bumping, a decades-old technique that has gained recent notoriety in the media, uses a specially cut key and a tool to apply a burst of force, causing the pins inside the lock cylinder to separate across the shear line just long enough to allow the cylinder to turn.
The maintenance enhancements to which he refers are centered around the replaceable wear part design of the new shear line. Buildup and welding time, common to most shears, has essentially been eliminated.
However, a lighter flow of materials can cause the paper to hover above the shear line and activate the compression cycle, causing poor charges or false cycling, resulting in poor bale quality.
"In a conventional funnel-shaped approach, material flows down the middle first; near the front end, material can flow backward as well, developing a shear line," he says.
Parma s overall manufacturing processes include small, medium, and large transfer press lines, high-speed progressive presses, a world-class cut-to-length shear line, and GM North America s largest stand-alone, multi-cell, resistance welding metal assembly operations.
