Increasingly shorter model cycles, a growing number of vehicle models, and a variety of manufacturing processes call for universally applicable production systems to be used. In order to meet these high demands, FRIMO has developed a combined system that can handle a range of production processes.
As a result, the forming of deep-drawn surfaces, also in IMG quality, the traditional laminating as well as IMG laminating even for instrument panels can be achieved with only one machine. This enables to perfectly match the process to specific component requirements. Another innovative feature is that the system can automatically create blanks in addition to unrolling standard film. The use of cutting-edge mechanical and electronic components guarantees superior component quality and reproducibility.
Bringing together a number of processes in a single system also reduces space requirements in production. Other features of the system include a newly developed carrier preheater to achieve the optimal temperature for adhesive joints as well as a high-speed sliding table that tilts for fast and ergonomically ideal assembly or component removal. Here, too, the use of a process optimizing chain rail, standard on FRIMO laminating systems, leads to reduced material consumption and a more efficient process. Sliding frames at the forming station optimize component quality and also contribute to reduction of material use.
A new feature is the fully automatic tool changing system with six adjustable positions – this can be extended as needed. Furthermore, automatic tool tempering minimizes changeover times. This means that no manual intervention is necessary and optimal tool availability is guaranteed.
