Marlin Steel Wire Products Installs TrumpfTruBend Robotic Brake for Speed and Safety

Marlin Steel Wire products has added a new high-speed robot to its robotics fleet. Precision of up to 10 µm and 0.25 º at a force of 132 t is achievable with the robot. Installing the robot greatly enhances the quality and efficiency of work.

Trumpf TrubBend 3120 press brake

The TrumpfTrubBend 3120 press brake will help Marlin Steel in meeting the increase in job orders. KashyapAlur, the lead for project Delta Airline Pratt Whitney Engine, explained that the four-axis back gauge helped the engineers in executing tasks that involved complex bends and reducing the number of welds. He added that having steel fabrications greatly enhanced the integrity of the material when compared to welding. The speed of the beam is 200mm/sec at the bending edges.

Another mechanical engineer at Marlin regards the easy download of the AutoCAD software as the main advantage of the press brake. He added that the software facilitated seamless integration of various systems in the industry. Mechanical engineer at Marlin Steel, Daniel Hegarty, explained that the tolerance offered by the press brake is of the order of 10 µm. The press brake allows the handling of an array of angled bends with high precision. The backguage axes in the press are controlled by as many as five CNCs, which provide high precision while handling bends. One of the mechanical engineers who worked on the Northrup and Raytheon project pointed out that the force capacity of 132 t and 122 in. bend helped in bending thicker and bigger sheets easily and quickly.

The press brake ensures the safety of the operator and increases productivity. There is a laser beam that detects the presence of obstacles like human hand and stalls the operations until the obstacle is removed. The President of Marlin Steel stated that apart from installing the press brake system Marlin Steel has hired two more mechanical engineers. He added that Marlin Steel will continue growing by providing innovative engineering solutions.
