Lenze Americas

Edge banding is a tricky process. It involves applying a decorative or protective surface to the edges of products made from compressed wood chip and resin board materials.

The applied surface material is often wood-effect plastic on a roll that must be handled carefully due to its weak and brittle properties.

Servo & SMD/SC Drives Clean Up Sticky Situations

The edge-banding machine prepares the wood surface, unrolls the edge material, applies the glue and then compresses the glued strip to the edge. It then cuts and finishes the ends of each edge.

A combination of Lenze Americas drives provides a pitch perfect solution. Acting in tandem, the PositionServo drive precisely controls the positioning while the SMD/SC inverter drive controls the speed, synchronizing the multiple operations of this complex machine perfectly.

Two servo axes follow a master encoder signal; the two PositionServo drives electrically replicate a drive shaft and gearing in order to match a synchronous fixed speed ratio when applying the edge material.

The speed ratio is logged as a parameter within the control logic of the respective drives. Servo control ensures there is no slippage as belts apply the edge material.

The SMD/SC drives complete the package by controlling the standard AC motors that drive the unwinding of the edge material and the conveyer belt that moves the boards into position. SMD/SC and PositionServo prove to be a perfect team to tackle this sticky situation.

magneta Controllers

The Controller 14.422 serves to excite the magnetic particle clutches and brakes. The excitation current can be influenced by a dancer potentiometer or a master voltage. The setpoint potentiometer serves to set the required torque or exciting current. As a nominal output voltage of 24 V is required, the controller has to be adapted to the mains via the transformer supplied. The control board ensures that, despite varying coil temperature

Lenze Gearboxes

Available as an Inline, ight angle, or shaft mounted design, the g500 series servo adaptor optimizes available space and reduces the requirement for coupling components. Developed to transform motor speed into torque as intelligently and accurately as possible, the finely tiered range of Lenze gearboxes are designed to minimize motor energy losses. The Lenze g500 gearbox series features energy efficiency of at least 94 percent across
