Production line for steel beams with attached workplaces

Wolf Osterhofen

The equipment consisted out of two stand alone drilling and sawing lines type Peddinghaus and Heinzemann conveyor system. At infeed side lift trucks are working, on outfeed side cross conveyors.

Behind the cross conveyors of the drill line further conveyors are fixed which are used together with a turning device and a tipping device as working places for weldings.

To get an optimal flow of material in the production several possible variations for the transport system were designed and discussed with customer. The two drilling and sawing lines were completed by a third drilling and sawing lines. A blasting plant was placed in front of this machine.

The finished profiles are completely welded at the succeeding work places and leave the production line by side fork lift trucks.
