Originally, LSP was planning on building and implementing their own automation internally on their chassis, however,the WEISS sales and engineering team provided them with a 3D CAD model of a WEISS chassis along with a unique configuration proposal based on their TC (150/220) Series tables.
A key design element that both machines had to address was overcoming the excessive downward forces (400 lbs.) from the servo-driven welders, to melt plastic that was exacted onto the index table’s tool plate in repeated production.
To overcome this, an anvil back-up support was designed underneath to absorb the intense loads from the welders−ultimately promoting longer production life for the tables and plates.
The cornerstone to achieving each chassis system’s production goals, was implementing WEISS’ third generation configuration TC heavy duty rotary indexing tables−TC 150 (six station) and TC 220 (eight station).
Both tables feature a hard coat anodized plating finish on the aluminum jig plate. This coating is essential in providing superior durability versus the intense downward force pressure subjected on the anvil that supports the plate.
Delivering the highest reliability and precision, the robust series features standard stationary post, center standard through hole, high-load bearing, and large cam followers with needle roller bearings for the following LSP polymer plumbing part product applications.
