Eurobend GmbH will demonstrate during the Wire Duss. 2018 (Hall 13, Booth 13C72) the new AKK SERIES:
The only high output flexible welding machine eliminating all line wire de-coiling stations.
The new “AKK” welding line has set new standards in mesh production. This new, innovative design eliminates all idle
times and at least doubles productivity in comparison to conventional welding lines. All advantages from off-coil and
pre-cut welding machines and more, are combined in one machine. The “AKK” Series are capable of producing large
and small batches-orders consecutively without any downtime. The concept behind the AKK series allows automatic
mesh spacing & dimensions changes, making it the only flexible high production coil-fed mesh welding line, as it can
produce all mesh types instantly without any adjustments. Also, it offers a compact system layout requiring minimum
floor space requirements.
No downtime when changing:
Equipped with the PATENTED “Automatic Wire Orientation System”, which allows the use of a high speed roller
straightening module for line wire feeding. The “AWOS” absorbs all wire straightening imperfections from the roller
straightener. This unique Automatic Wire Orientation System ensures perfectly flat mesh panels regardless of wire
and straightening quality. It is fully programmable and capable of processing all types of material, smooth or ribbed.
A Single coil replaces all line wire de-coiling stations, where a double line & cross wire de-coiling station ensures
As a result to the above, minimal stock of wire spools and coils required and the necessity for large stock of ready
mesh as in conventional welding lines is eliminated. Furthermore, multiple diameter changes during one day/shift
can be achieved efficiently due to single coil line wire feeding.
The AKK series are equipped with independent heavy duty hydraulic or pneumatically operated welding heads.
Due to programmable cross wire placement, different cross wire spacing is possible within the same mesh. Mesh
advancing either through a servo-driven carrier offering exceptional accuracy, or through a compact layout servo-driven
roller feeder. The in-line mesh turning and collection table is equipped with adjustable mesh aligning flaps for perfect
mesh batches. Roller or laterally discharging chain conveyors with height adjustment and in-line mesh bundling stations
are available. Remote access via Internet connection for troubleshooting and routine maintenance.
The AKK Series can process up to 12mm (line and cross wires) and several machines are already installed in
Europe and USA
