This proposal describes the Model 3400HEAVY Fabricating Center, 55 ton (500 kN) capacity, 100″ x 160″ (2.5m x 4.0m) positioning area, per attached specifications, for 460/3/60 volt incoming power. (NOTE: Material blank sizes greater than 160” can be processed by utilizing the Programmable Repositioning Assembly.)
Siemens 840DSL CNC 3-Axis Positioning / Contouring Control including:
Pendant mounted operator’s station,
Windows XP Operating System,
Alpha/Numeric panel and Windows keyboard with trackball
5 MB part program and system shared memory
10.4″ High Resolution Color LCD Monitor.
Network Card, installed in the CNC Control, including:
10/100 Mb RJ45 Ethernet
Ready for connection to customer’s existing Network
Suitable for downloading Part Programs
Automatic Tool Changing, accomplished with a tool cartridge mounting system mounted to the X-axis Rail with a total of (12) slots available for tooling cartridges. The Tooling System uses Whitney 36TC Style Tools, and includes one (1) Alignment Tool Set.
Programmable Small Parts Drop Door, 24″ x 72″, (600 mm x 1830 mm), located immediately next to the plasma torch, used for automatically unloading small parts and cut-outs. A sensor detects the passage of a finished part through the drop door. For reliability purposes, the sensor confirms that the part passes through the door before the machine is released to proceed to the next move, and for productivity reasons, the sensor also triggers the door to close as soon as the part passes. Average drop door cycle time is only 2.5 seconds.
Hypertherm MAXPRO200®, LongLife® air and oxygen plasma cutting system with impressive cutting speeds, consistent cut quality, and exceptional consumable life.
Integrated Dust Collection System, including the dust collector, spark trap, duct, wiring, and interconnections are provided.
NOTE: The supplied dust collection system is designed for plasma cutting steel and stainless steel. Plasma cutting aluminum requires an optional additional aluminum dust collector.
Integrated Plasma System Support Equipment:
Air intensifier for increasing shop air pressure as required for plasma cutting
Slag Chamber lined with refractory materials
Whitney Halo, plasma torch collision detection device.
Hydraulic Work Clamp Assembly, including (2) standard work clamps for up to 3/4″ (19 mm) thick material. Protection is provided by a clamp verification cycle in the CNC Control. This ensures proper physical location of the work clamps relative to the values in the CNC control. Retractable reference stops are included which allow parts with camber (up to 1.00″ / 25 mm) to be processed without interference during automatic repositioning.
Programmable Repositioning Assembly is designed to relocate the work clamps on the material in order to process areas of the material that are within the work clamp safety zones. Automatic repositioning allows the repositioning of material blanks which are longer that the X-axis.
NOTE :If the machine will be making finished parts longer than the X-axis length, please contact us to review the specific application.
Material Support Roller Tables are supplied for the left and right side of the machine.
NOTE: The material support roller tables are designed to support the material during processing. For applications in which the material thickness is predominately 0.125” (3 mm) or less, ball transfer support tables are recommended in lieu of the roller tables.
Hydraulic Pressure Switch Circuit, selectable through part program, for ram reversal upon pressure. This allows forming work such as center punch marks, number stamps, countersinks, louvers, and embossing to be done.
Programmable selection of punch/stripper height to allow for mill tolerance bowed material and forming tools. Bowed material must be loaded with the bow up.
Hydraulic Power Unit, with 40 H.P. (30kw) drip-proof motor and hydraulic oil.
Automatic Punch Lubrication, with reservoir.
Remote Diagnostics Package – allows many machine problems to be diagnosed via the Internet using TeamViewer. W. A. Whitney Service Technicians can log directly onto the CNC control for the purpose of diagnosing problems, reviewing NC programs, downloading new software, and changing parameters if required. Customer is responsible for providing a suitable Ethernet connection at the machine CNC control with Internet access. A telephone line or cell phone is recommended so that the technician can talk to the operator/maintenance person while diagnosing the problem.
Software License for all software resident on the CNC Control. The software is proprietary, and the intellectual property of W. A. Whitney Co. Prior to the commissioning of the machine tool, the user must sign a software license agreement. This is a non-transferable license that must be renewed by any and all subsequent owners of the machine tool. The value of this software license is $1,500.00, and it is included in the price of the machine.
Operating and Service Manual consisting of (1) print copy and (1) CD copy W. A. Whitney Documentation and (1) print copy of Vendor Documentation including Siemens CNC and Drives.
Electrical Standards – The machine conforms to W. A. Whitney electrical design standards which are based on N. E. C., NFPA-79, and UL Standards with deviations. Components are NEMA and IEC rated where possible.
