The versatility of the Ficep product line is further exhibited with the Type D angle and plate systems that provide such additional capabilities as plasma cutting and a CNC controlled flat stock shear with a programmable cutting angle to accomplish clipping and miter cuts, for example, in the most cost-effective manner.
Structural steel work requires a huge number of plates and details designed for use as base plates, gusset plates, fin plates, stiffeners and many other connection plates. These plates are generally thick and almost always punched, perforated and cut to shape. Sometimes there is a need to automatically marking the component. The D4 – D8 make it possible to process very thick plate carrying out several operations in a single pass.
The basic versions have punching capability with either 4 or 8 1100kN punch stations. This is combined with a 2200kN rotating shear unit for cutting 510 mm wide by 25 mm thick plates. Flats slide on an idle rollerway and are moved by a CNC controlled carriage and pincher.
Hydraulic horizontal and vertical clamps tightly keep the material in the working position.
The fully optional lines of the Tipo D4 and D8 include the possibility to have both flats and angle working units on the machine at the same time. This option includes a separate punching unit with 2 punches for the vertical leg of the angle bar.
