Gasparini Industries has an extensive experience in automated production lines. In the 90’s we made several shearing and corner-notching lines with picking and positioning systems for sheets and blanks. The road that leads us to Industry 4.0 started a long time ago.
This plant has been built in 1995: it’s an LTCO 6030-2030 automated cutting line. It is composed of a squaring line with two guillotine shears, automated sheet picking and positioning, and rotating table. This automated line can cut mild steel sheets up to 30-mm thick. A dashboard allowed the supervisor to continuously check machine status and to change cutting programs and parameters.
This customer is a South African rolling mill: the two automated shears were used to trim and square the sheet metal plates to the required dimensions. Processed material is AISI 304 and 316 stainless steel.
