Greenfield’s latest addition to the punching range of equipment is the fully automated Amada EM3612ZRB. This is the first of the next generation of Amada turret punching technology.
It comes equipped with an external buffer turret for high speed automatic tool change. Tooling can be added or removed without interfering with punching production. Combined with the main turret the EM3612ZRB has a total tool capacity of 65 live tools ready loaded for immediate availability giving increased productivity and uptime.
Additional enhancements include a concealed lower turret, for scratch free material processing. Also giving the advantage of eliminating potential sheet or component clashes from high form tooling. The EM3612ZRB has the new Amada ID tooling system for digital tool control which also monitors the tools within the turrets at all times. This includes hit rates from individual tools maximizing tooling life and reducing unnecessary grinding. It also removes the opportunity of setter errors from incorrect tool loading. The new tools have easy, clip and adjust with no additional tooling required to disassemble, speeding up all aspects of tool handing.
Integrated automation onto the EM3612ZRB is the Amada L300III sheet loader linked for unmanned sheet handling of 6 tonne of standard stock sheet. On the opposite side of the EM3612ZRB to the PRUL300III part removal which automatically collects and stacks punched finished components for lights out production.
