Tangent Forming Three Sided Furnace Wrappers Housings

This was a blank feed, punch and notch system feeding the part directly
through the Rollformer to form the top and bottom edge flanges of the Furnace Wrappers. The Tangent Wingformer formed the lead and trail front edge flanges then final formed the part into a three side wrapper housing.

System sensed the length and width of the individual blank and automatically
set the width of the notch, punch and Rollformer, then downloaded
the feed sequence for the notch, punch and tangent form operations.

Blank Feed System to Form the Furnace Wrapper Housing from Pre-Painted Mild Steel

The double stack tower retrieved the pre-cut blanks from eight different skidded stacks. The parts will be placed onto the feed conveyor and transferred directly into the pre-notch and punch presses.  Double Stack Tower

Programmable Feed and Form Cycle to Produce a Three  Sided Wrapper

Two opposed programmable Tangent Formers using a combination feed form sequence will form a wide variety of three sided Furnace Wrappers. One traveling Tangent Former Head feeds and indexes the part into a fixed position Tangent Former Head. Using a combination of clamp, feed, and form cycles the two  ends are formed then sides are formed into a three sided wrap housing. Flange heights can vary form part without any changeovers or setups.

The Punch, Notch, and Rollformer automatically varied in width to match the blank width. A program was downloaded to sequence the notch and punch pattern along with the form sequence for the Tangent Former.  3 Sided Wrapper
The programmed Tangent Former accepted the part as it exits the Rollformer to form the two end flanges and form the units into a one  piece three sided housing.  Tangent Former
