Haven Helps a Joint U.S. and Japanese Company Meet Their Unique Request.

A joint U.S. and Japanese company have purchased a wire brush deburring and length inspection machines. These machines will be integrated with an existing Haven cutoff. They have also purchased a Model 939 end finisher integrated with a walking beam transfer system and an integrated length inspection system. This is the first time that a length inspection system has been integrated with a standard Haven end finisher. This machine will also be integrated with an existing Haven cutoff. This is an example how versatile and flexible Haven tube processing machines are to integrate into new or existing applications.

newsIntegrated Length and Straightness Inspection Machine

Integrated Length and Straightness Inspection Machine

In this application, Haven was challenged with providing an inspection machine that would 100% measure automotive door impact beams for overall length and TIR straightness, using laser technology. The inspection would be done after a heat treating operation, which follows a Haven dual-blade shear cutoff and a Haven double end finisher. The operating program was designed to require minimal operator input for setup. Very simply, the operator enters the part length, upper and lower length limits and the acceptable distortion value. That’s it. The inspection process begins with an elevating conveyor, which accepts parts from the heat treat operation. The tubes are elevated to the entry height of the inspection machine and deposited onto a magazine rack; level controlled by high and low proximity switches. The tubes are then indexed into a rotating star wheel. Subsequent indexes move the tube into the first station, which measures distortion, and then the second station, which measures length. If both parameters are within tolerance, the tube rolls down the exit ramp and to the next operation. If the part fails a test, the tube is diverted down one of two reject chutes; sorted by type of rejection.

Haven’s ability to innovate electro-mechanical solutions that specifically address customer’s needs makes Haven a unique source in our industry. Haven consistently meets or exceeds the expectations of our customers with our innovative tube processing solutions.

newsPackaging System

Haven Integrated Stacking/Packaging System

Reducing workplace injuries and increasing productivity is a common goal for all manufacturers. Haven Manufacturing is helping a leading Midwest tube producer achieve those goals by developing a 4-axis robotic packaging system and integrating it with a cut-to-length and brush de-burring line. What once required 3 or 4 people to operate a line, including manually packaging product, now takes one operator and one part-time material handler. The customer produces a wide range of conduit diameters from 1.0” to 4.50” and wall thickness from .049” to .237”. The equipment had to be flexible, reliable and user-friendly. The process begins with a Soco Model SA-115NC-CL2 sawing machine with automatic bundle loading and servo length control. Cut tubes are deposited onto a Haven built conveyor, which transfers and diverts the tube into a Haven Model #970 Wire Brush De-burring machine. As the tubes exit the brush machine, they are deposited onto a preparation table that orients them for pick-up by the packaging robot. The pickup head design is electro-magnet, with head motion of X, Y, Z and 90° rotation. Several packaging patterns are pre-programmed to allow for quick and easy changeover for diameter, length and container size. This particular application requires a material handler to forklift out the full container and replace it with an empty container. The container orientation is guided by a two-sided fixed locator with electronic position verification. The process cycle time allows enough time to exchange containers without delaying production. Haven also has the option of adding an automatic container egress and ingress conveyance system.
Haven’s versatility is shown once again in our ability to innovate and produce reliable solutions for our customers.
Haven is a full service turnkey equipment supplier to a wide variety of tubular applications for cut-to-length, finishing and material handling. For more information, contact Haven at: www.havencut.com.
