RSA cutting systems GmbH will be there – the global manufacturer of sawing machines, saw peripherals, chamfering systems, deburring machines and sawing and brushing tools will be presenting its wide range of solutions on a 250 m² stand (Hall 6, Stand D 25) at Tube & Wire 2018, the world's largest trade fair for the tube and tube processing industry which will be held at the Messe Düssel-dorf trade fair ground from 16 to 20 April 2018.
RSA Managing Director Thomas Berg sums up the main focuses for the trade fair: “The highlight of RSA's appearance at the trade fair will be the RASACUT MXS sawing centre, which has undergone signifi-cant improvements. Alongside other developments, it boasts a brilliant new clamping concept which enables it to process four tubes at the same time instead of three. The RASACUT SH-150-2 sawing centre has a number of new features including a fully automatic feed and adjustment system, making the universal saw faster, more versatile and more user-friendly than ever before.”
RSA will also be giving live demonstrations of various innovative machines and solutions for saw-ing and deburring and will be appearing at the Tube Innovation Net-work stand (Hall 6, Stand E 22) as well. At this stand, visitors will be able to use a 3D touch model to find out about all of the partners and solutions involved in the network, which covers the entire process chain of tube production and processing.
Quadruple-cut saw for huge volumes of parts
If you are looking to further reduce unit costs in the context of tube machining and you need to process particularly large volumes of parts, the RASACUT MXS sawing centre is the ideal choice. The trade fair in Düsseldorf will be the first opportunity to see its new clamping concept which is capable of processing four rather than three tubes at the same time.
“Compared to the usual single cut, the output is in-creased by up to 25% to 14,000 parts/h,” says Thomas Berg. The RASACUT MXS automatically feeds four rods in a diameter range of 6 to 20 mm from the upstream bundle loader and saws them with excep-tional levels of precision. Individual rods can be sawn in a diameter range of up to 50 mm. The rods are sawn to the set lengths with a tolerance of +/-0.1 mm.
The fully electric, hydraulic-free, high-performance sawing centre can be connected to downstream peripherals for deburring, length meas-urement, washing, drying or chamfering at any time. The RASACUT MXS can be seen in conjunction with a bundle loader for automatic material feeding. Crucially with this system, the rods can be changed over without adding to the non-productive time at all.
Saws all kinds of tubes and profiles at top speed
With its ability to saw both thin- and thick-walled tubes as well as solid materials with a diameter of 15 to 150 mm at a particularly fast pace – and thus do the work of multiple band saws on its own – the RASACUT SH 150-2 sawing centre has always been the ideal choice for single and (as an option) double rods. Now it is more universal, flexible, convenient and cost-effective than ever before!
The sawing centre now has a special feed system which will be presented for the first time at the trade fair and which eliminates the time-consuming and laborious process of loading each magazine compartment manu-ally – as has been standard practice on the market up to now.
A special, fully automated flat magazine now allows all kinds of tubes and profiles to be fed into the individual magazine compartments au-tomatically. Round and profile materials are placed on a feeding line by means of an automatic loading system and fed into the relevant magazine compartments via a lifting mechanism.
The sawing centre settings can then be adjusted automatically to suit the material in question, completely eliminating any time-consuming manual adjust-ment work. “This makes the RASACUT SH 150-2 sawing centre a truly universal saw without any restrictions, as well as significantly speed-ing up its processes,” comments RSA Managing Director Thomas Berg.
