SMART AND EFFECTIVE
LWB‘S MODULAR TRIMMING MACHINE

LWB’s trimming machines are available in a variety of configurations:


1. PNEUMATIC OR ELECTRIC
 

A fixed stand serves as a processing unit. The trimming processes can be executed with up to two fixed pneumatic or electric trimming units. A reconfiguration to a different product version requires manual adjustment of trimming diameter, height and angle.

The remaining material waste is transferred into a collection container through a waste chute. After completion of the trimming points, the part is pushed off the spindle by an ejector.

Upgradable with low effort and modular construction of these machines it easy for any machine to be retrofitted with a robot trimming unit.


2. ROBOT
 

A fixed stand with a 6-axis robot serves as the processing unit. The robot arm is fitted with a knife, which can execute up to 4 trimming processes per part.

Another advantage of this option is the integrated recipe management routine, which records the programmed values for each article and allows them to be called up at any time.

The remaining material waste is transferred into a collection container through a waste chute. After completion of the trimming points, the part is pushed off the spindle by an ejector.
