EBS Automation was commissioned by a Japanese multinational heat exchanger manufacturer to design and manufacture a flexible low to medium volume machine. This was used for building Heat Exchanger Cores in the following size ranges: Between tube plates – 220mm to 700mm, Across core – 550mm max and Core depth – 105mm max.
The machine is a two axis servo driven machine with modular design tooling to enable quick product change over from stop to start. As well as quick tool changing the operator HMI touch screen allows a fast selection for type of product to be manufactured and at the press of a button the machine will automatically set all the parameters.
The build position is inside a guarded area accessible from the front of the machine through a Light Guard.
Loading of all components is done manually. Core compress and header plate fitting and tube sizing operations are automatically enabled by servo driven lead screws. The tamper plate is raised and lowered pneumatically.
To further enhance the flexibility of this machine specific tooling sets were manufactured to assemble two products at the same ime, doubling the output per cycle. This design of machine also has the capability to produce round header tubes for oil coolers as well as plate headers.
These machines have proved to be so versatile they are now operating in different countries and will continue to do so as they are easily re-tooled for a new product types.
