PROTOTYPE OF A NEW AUTOMATIC THREADING MACHINE

The Center for Industrial Equipment Design (CDEI UPC) has carried out the conceptual design, the detailed design, and the manufacture of a prototype of an automatic threading machine for sheet metal parts for the company FORMINSA. The machine is controlled by one motor that can vary the speed and the depth of the threading. The threading machine is synchronized with the machine that produces the sheet metal parts, according to the required cycles per minute. The electronic control of the new threading machine facilitates its configuration to manufacture different parts. As a result, much less time is required to prepare the machine. Currently, the prototype is working successfully in the company’s facilities.

FORMINSA is a leading company in technical metal stamping products.
