The focus of National Machinery’s stand will be their dedication to advancing metal forming process technology. National’s Met-MAX Innovations is an entire R&D division devoted to process development of innovative net-shape processes. A worldwide team of over 30 highly skilled technicians utilizing sophisticated design tools and state-of-the-art development equipment are housed in a modern campus of laboratories.
They are committed to providing customers with effective forming solutions to enhance their business. Net-shape metal process development often yields new and higher-value part applications resulting in a competitive advantage in the customer’s market.
Another exciting feature of the National Machinery booth will be an operational LeanFX10 cold forming machine with inline DTi 4325-120TSHC wire drawer. This particular machine has been specially designed with plexi-glass enclosure panels allowing visitors to view functioning components of the machine that are difficult or impossible to see on a standard model FORMAX®. The LeanFX10 will also feature their new Punch Clamp Monitor system, an alert designed to shut down the machine if there is a loose or improperly clamped punch.
SMART Machinery experts will be performing live demonstrations on two different models of SMART machines. The NGP and the NGS Flat Die Thread Rollers, utilizing SMART’s patented direct drive and servo driven systems will be threading parts with two different threading operations in only one pass. The NGP will feature a newly developed discharge sorter that guarantees to sort out bad parts while maintaining high-speed machine operation.
Representatives from our Customer Support Services will be available to explain National Machinery’s thorough Rebuilding process, Machine evaluation packages with beneficial trending data, and detail their extensive inventory with fast global delivery of spare parts.
Nakashimada will present their newest 2 die 3 blow parts former, model NP81. The Nakashimada NP series 2 die 3 blow Parts Formers are developed for high precision components. Their unique NP series 2 die 3 blow configuration with fingerless punch transfer and kick out in both Punches and Dies, enable the manufacture of complex, short, difficult-to-transfer parts free from the critical timing or alignment issues normally associated with finger transfer machines.
Their vertical punch shift mechanism has greatly increased the accuracy of centering while reducing stress on large-diameter head and eccentric load parts, thus overall improving tool life.
Mectron inspection machines provide a 360° dimensional inspection using eddy current, metallurgical and crack detection for zero defect performance of fasteners, deep draw components, aerospace, ammunition and much more. Mectron will have a Q5000/8 Qualifier at the booth.
The Q-series qualifier delivers high speed gauging and metallurgical inspection for a variety of parts in a wide range of materials. Utilizing Mectron’s patented laser array, the Qualifier provides 360° inspection of each piece, displays its dimensions on the computer screen and automatically inspects the part features and measurements.
Mectron will also have their new patent pending Dimensional Surface Qualifier the DSQ-9000, at the stand. This qualifier is a camera and laser based system that uses statistical learning to inspect cylindrical parts. The parts traverse the machine by rolling along an angled rail by way of a conveyor belt which allows the camera to take 360° degrees of images for part inspection.
National Machinery is a global leader in advanced cold & warm forming machinery, process technology, and customer support services. National Machinery’s global footprint provides support to customers locally on four continents.
National Machinery and their alliance partners SMART Machinery Srl, Nakashimada Engineering Works, Mectron Inspection Engineering and Drawing Technology Inc. will be present at their booth A42 in Hall 16 at the upcoming 2020 Düsseldorf WIRE show. National Machinery and their partners provide a full product range for the metal forming industry.
Experts from National Machinery, SMART, Nakashimada, Mectron and DTI will be available to answer your questions and help you determine the best machine and technology to suite your specific part application needs.
