FINN-POWER SHEAR BRILLIANCE® - OPENING THE NEXT ERA IN INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING
Like all technologies, sheet metal working develops in
consecutive stages, solution after solution being first introduced, then adopted by proactive manufacturers and later established as a "standard"
During FINN-POWER´s pioneering years, the company has made major contributions to this manufacturing technology.
Such consecutive stages can be easily seen, a few of which are listed below:
- 1983-hydraulic punching
- 1985-automated material management
- 1987-integrated right angle shear
- 1994-servo-hydraulic punching 1000 hits per minute
- 1999-linear drive applications
By combining the self-evident benefits of an integrated right angle shear, and the exciting speed, accuracy and unlimited distance of travel offered by the
latest in linear drives, the time has come for yet another technological stage, enhancing the manufacturers’ possibilities of a more productive, faster and
more accurate operation.
Moving forward is a linear movement…
Since launching the record-breaking FPL6 flying optics laser in 1999,
FINN-POWER has now applied linear drive technology to the integrated shearing concept which it has championed since the late 1980's. The new Shear
Brilliance® surpasses all performance values previously associated with integrated punching and shearing. A new level of multi-function performance is
made possible by the space between the turret punch press and the right angle shear where auxiliary equipment can be installed.
The ingenuity of the
integrated right angle shearing principle, coupled with the outstanding efficiency and flexibility of Shear Brilliance® combine into unique productivity.
Shear Brilliance® is:
- fast — 2 to 4 times the capacity of traditional manufacturing solution
- versatile — throughput time minutes instead of days
There are two basic Shear Brilliance® models. The SB6 series offers a maximum sheet size of 1500 mm x 3000 mm (60” x 120”) and SB8 which offers a
maximum sheet size of 1500 mm x 4200 mm (60” x 165”).
