Environmental technology

Project: Rolling-in device for solar collector housing
Industry: Environmental technology and device construction
Location: Switzerland
Solar panels that are used for heating industrial water are manufactured as modular boxes. For this a groove will be flanged. To automate the manufacture of these large modules, ROBO • MAT has a built-in, programmable flanging machine.

Functional description:
  • The box frame with its loosely positioned rear panel is inserted into the flanging machine.
  • A program moves a powerful handling unit with an X-Y-Z axis with a 90-degree swiveling crimping head along the frame and flanges the rear panel.
  • After flanging is completed, the collector housing is expelled.
