They can also be suited for safety applications and feature sophisticated functions such as synchronisation, coordinated multi-axis operation, and flying shear
. In a dedicated intra-logistics model, versatile mechatronic drive units will carry out positioning tasks such as contact-free and gap-free accumulation.
Features of the ASDA-A2 include a built-in electronic cam function ideal for flying shear
, rotary cutoff and synchronised motion applications.
They made large flying shear
machines, used to cut strip steel into sheets, as the strip steel came off a steel plant rolling mill at many feet per second.
The ASDA-A2 series features a built-in electronic cam (E-Cam) function which offers the best solution for flying shear
, rotary cutoff and synchronized motion applications.
The Flying Shear
solution, part of the IndraMotion system, is a pre-engineered, IndraDrive-based solution for standard applications requiring simple configuration setup, saving integration, setup and operation time, the company says.
The motion controller's CAM function is ideal for applications such as rotary cutoff, flying shear
, profiled container filling, and material handling.
The flying shear used to cut Hexacomb panels to length consists of a saw and its motor mounted on an arbor plate, which in turn is pushed and pulled by a rodless air cylinder.
Aaron Gibbs, today a unit manager at Pactiv, was handed the assignment of reducing the failure rate of the flying shear's mechanism.
This keyword provides a flying shear
action, which gives an idealized multi-segmented motion profile for controlling the action of the lugs that collate the bars into groups.
Typical applications for include packaging, material handling, registration, labeling, flying shears
, capping, form/fill/seal, and factory automation.
