Description of Kaltenbach WBZ 1500

Kaltenbach WBZ 1500 Sheet Metal Working Centre - CNC-controlled flame-cutting machine available as a second-hand machine at Nenok from Cologne

With the Kaltenbach sheet metal processing centre, the operator has a multifunctional machine for steel construction, steel trade and appliance construction. With this CNC-controlled machine, you achieve a high degree of flexibility and cost-effectiveness for your sheet metal production.

With the WBZ 1500 flat steel machining centre, a large number of work steps can be carried out in one system by one machine operator: drilling, countersinking, threading and flame cutting of sheet metal, sheet metal strips, and flat steels. The production of head plates, foot plates and gusset plates becomes cost-effective and economical with this sheet metal processing centre.

The mode of operation of the Kaltenbach WBZ 1500 is as follows

First, the contour data is read into the CNC control manually or by transferring CAD data in DSTV format. The control takes the generated data and converts it into machine commands so that the positioning axes can move to the desired drilling or torch positions. Afterwards, the metal sheets or the flat steel are placed on the infeed roller conveyor in their initial length. The length measuring device consisting of a pushing and pulling gripper carriage with hydraulic collet then positions the workpiece (the sheet) first for the drilling process and then under the torch unit to burn out the component in the desired shape. Afterwards, the almost finished components are usually deburred or marked by the machine operator right next to the machine and made ready for production.
