Information on models FDB from Peddinghaus
The Peddinghaus FDB thermal cutting and drilling lines from the Peddimat product range are suitable for cost-effective drilling and thermal cutting of sheet metal, steel plates and flat steel.
Even though many Peddinghaus FDB lines are partly getting on in years, the machines of the FDB series from Peddinhaus still make a reliable contribution in the steel construction and steel trade. Around the 1980s, these thermal cutting machines for steel plates were a major innovation for economical flat steel processing. These compact machines made it possible to perform both drilling and thermal cutting of flat steel in a single machine.
In 2018, this oxy-fuel thermal cutting machine with integrated drilling unit is still a reliable production machine for the economic steel construction production of head plates, foot plates, flanges and so on. A stable design, good maintenance by the machine operator and good service by Peddinghaus as the machine manufacturer and Nenok as one of the leading used machine dealers in steel construction, ensure continued cost-effective use for sheet metal processing. Also the good spare parts supply by Nenok for the Peddimat FDB series (be it for mechanical components or electrical components such as the Siemens control, Siemens drives, Baumüller drives and encoders, etc.) guarantees the steel fabricators and steel dealers a high availability of this FDB thermal cutting and drilling line from Peddinghaus.
Mode of operation Peddinghaus FDB 600 thermal cutting and drilling line
The mode of operation is simple, reliable and easy to learn. After programming a component dimension (head plate, foot plate, flange, etc.) with the required bore and contour data, the NC data generated by the programming software is transferred to the CNC control (usually Siemens) in DSTV or DXF format. The CNC control converts this read-in data into the position commands for the individual axes. The flat material is then placed on the inclined infeed roller table and brought up to the tensioning roller of the roller measuring feed of the FDB flame boring machine. After the material is clamped in the feed unit (the roll feed), it is precisely positioned via a measuring disk and the zero point. Then, the previously programmed positions are drilled with an HSS coolant channel drill or marked (short spot drilling to get a point in the sheet).
The flat steel is then transported further to the gas-oxygen firing unit by the transport rollers. The contour data previously generated in the Siemens control system is then burned out with an oxy-fuel torch (usually oxygen with propane gas or acetylene gas). The finished drilled and fired component can now be removed from the movable, inclined discharge roller table of the FDB firing-drilling unit. Deburring of the holes and cutting edges is then usually performed by the machine operator directly next to the machine, while the machine is already producing the next component.
