Boschert CU Profi Copper Bar Processing Machine

Boschert CU Profi Copper Bar Processing Machine

The Boschert CU Profi copper bar processing machine is a flexible and powerful solution for the efficient processing of copper, aluminum, and steel bars. Monti currently has three CU Profi’s in production and its newest addition will be equipped with 8 punching stations, one of which will be an extra-large station for punching up to 2-inch-diameter profiles. The CU Profi accommodates bars up to 20 feet long, 9 inches wide, and material up to ½ inch thick. The CNC-controlled punching heads use standard thick turret “B” station tools and are equipped with hydraulic material clamping in the Y-axis on both sides of the punching head to ensure straight punching patterns. Also, a new feature on Monti’s latest CU Profi will be the capability for in process CNC dot-peen marking. The material feed system on the CU Profi utilizes special clamps to ensure complete processing with little waste. This feeding unit is supported on a linear guide and AC-servo motor, which guarantees a repeatability of ±.004” on material that is .25” thick.

Bystronic Xact Smart CNC 160 Ton Press Brake

Bystronic Xact Smart CNC 160 Ton Press Brake

The new generation of the Xact Smart increases the versatility and speed of bending. With its numerous new functions, Bystronic’s Xact Smart offers a decisive plus in bending technology. From the very onset, Bystronic designed this machine tool to offer a performance package with intelligent functions that enable users to produce parts cost-effectively and in high quality. One of the additional functions is the Xact Smart’s insert extension and stroke length expansion. This means that higher tools can now be used with the Xact Smart and enables users to produce parts with lower bending edges. This is particularly useful, for example, bending boxes and drawers. Another feature is the five-axis backgauge. The newly designed Bystronic backgauge systems are faster and thus increase the speed of the bending sequences. The five-axis system will allow Monti to use the Xact Smart to be bend complex 3D parts. A very important additional feature of the Xact Smart is the intelligent sensor system for precise bending. The special Bystronic crowning technology ensures high-precision air bending results. This unique assistant function is only available in this form with press brakes from Bystronic. Thanks to its sensor system, the Xact Smart’s crowning recognizes the position and length of the sheet metal part. This sensor system is integrated directly into the ByVision Bending control. This enables the Xact Smart to automatically control the ideal distribution of the bending force across the entire bending length without requiring the operator to deal with complicated details. This results in precise and consistent angles with every bend.

Manufacturing Day Introduces Youth to Manufacturing Careers

Monti Inc. Participates in Manufacturing Day to Introduce Youth to Manufacturing Careers

Monti Inc.’s commitment to moving the manufacturing industry forward is evident with their support of Manufacturing Day, an introduction for high school students to learn about different manufacturing careers.

Manufacturing day is the first Friday in October but continues throughout the month. The series of events help showcase modern manufacturing careers by encouraging companies and educational institutions to open their doors to students, teachers and community leaders.

As students attended a virtual event with Monti Inc., they learned about the types of work, met current employees and discovered first-hand about Monti’s team atmosphere. In preparation of the tours, Monti Inc. produced a video overview that introduced team members and career paths to those in attendance.

What Can Monti Inc.’s GPO-3 Fabricating Capabilities Do For You?

electrical insulators insulation fabrication examples

We’ll also help you value engineer your GPO-3 part to shorten lead times while increasing the value of the component.

First, a little background on GPO-3:

GP0-3 is a UL recognized plastic insulation material that performs very well in many high voltage electrical insulating applications that require high strength, flame resistance, low smoke generation and moderate heat resistance. Its most common use is to support and electrically isolate power and electrical distribution equipment.

GPO-3 applications include bus bar supports and mounting panels and high-voltage appliance insulators.

GPO-3 is composed of glass mat and/or glass roving fibers impregnated with polyester resins laminated under moderate pressure or pultruded through a die into angle, channel, I-beam, rod and tube configurations. Continue reading “What Can Monti Inc.’s GPO-3 Fabricating Capabilities Do For You?”

How does Monti Inc. form and fabricate copper?

copper fabrication in process

Here are seven ways to make copper busbars and copper fabrications.

1. Copper fabrication using forming and or bending is performed after the part has been cut to length, punched or milled. Copper forming and bending requires special forming tools and fixtures.

2. Copper stamping, coil processing and die cutting is performed using high speed production presses capable of forming .062” to .375” copper bar stock or coil.

3. Copper cold cutting, shearing or sawing is performed using cold saws to create prototypes and for high or low volume production runs. Continue reading “How does Monti Inc. form and fabricate copper?”
