A snapshot of this machine’s capabilities from Trilogy Machinery, Inc.
The SUNRISE ANC from Trilogy Machinery, Inc. (Belcamp, MD) combines a dual-cylinder ironworker or punching machine in tonnages up to 220 US tons, with up to a 20’ single-axis fully automatic CNC in-feed system for punching flat bar, angle and channel webs.
The main frame of the ANC is a heavily proportioned machined structural steel tube that provides unmatched rigidity and quality, yet offers simple set-up, adjustment and maintenance. The servo-driven rack and pinion guide system features Swiss-made GÜDEL components, a world leading supplier of automation.
The highly precise components provide +- 0.004” accuracy, high repeatability and high efficiency due in part to very low friction, vibration and noise while running under heavy loads at full operating speeds of up to 590”/minute.
The standard 7” touch-screen controller is podium mounted for easy placement according to job needs and features pre-set patterns making programming a simple task.
The SUNRISE ANC features a hydraulic punch stripper as well as pneumatic material clamping for fully automatic production. A specially designed in-feed roller table is included for full support of the material as well as specially made strippers and punching accessories for processing a wide variety of material.
Furthermore, the SUNRISE ANC is expandable to a full 20’ of in-feed and can be coupled with a two-axis system for semi-automatic movement, allowing an operator full control over plate positioning and hole placement.
