Developers Diaries #18 - Installation of a Cutting System in South Africa

A report about the installation of a cutting system in the Developer Diaries? You are probably wondering whether this is the right place for this blog post. But we at RG Technologies believe that practical experience is important for all employees to ensure optimal further development of our products. That's why I was involved in the installation of the system for our new customer Trendi Holdings in Durban as support for our Application Engineer Peter Unterseher.

 

Another reason was the scope of the installation. Setting up a cutting system, including all available modules, and the CAD is very difficult for one person to do in a fortnight. Especially when you consider that the client's team also has to be trained during this time, and that this was our very first installation in South Africa.

 

We needed the first few days to set up the Bullmer cutting table. Starting with the optimal position of the system up to the final implementation and first test cuts. At the same time, we were able to start attaching the mounts for the sensors and the projectors.

The following pictures already show the front work area where the leather skins are captured and the parts are nested. In the background, the hanging of the projectors for sorting of the parts after cutting is being prepared. After the first provisional cabling, the tests for the capturing and nesting could be started.

In the background of the two pictures you can still see the templates for manual cutting that have been used so far. The aim is to get this area completely free.

 

In the second week, training on the cutting table and CAD could begin as planned. On the second day of the training, parts designed in our system were already being cut for production. In the course of the week, the team became more and more independent and in the last days we were only on site for support and advice during production.

I would especially like to thank all the people involved from Trendi Holdings, N&T Sewing Technologies, Bullmer and Esto Schintex who actively supported us during the installation of the system. Without their help, the installation would not have been so straightforward and successful.

 

Derrick and Timm from N&T Sewing Technologies in particular looked after us during the entire two weeks, even apart from work, and introduced us to the hospitality of South Africa. We would also like to thank Jeremy Rom, the CEO of Trendi Holdings. We will be happy to come back.

 

Finally, to come back to the practical relevance: Yes, we have learnt a lot from this installation and will incorporate the new experiences into the further development of our products.

Stay online and best regards

'PEAKTOURe detect' in the latest issue of möbelfertigung

RG Technologies 'PEAKTOURe detect' möbelfertigung Erfassung Nesting

In issue 8/21 of möbelfertigung there is an article about our software solution PEAKTOURe detect.

 

PEAKTOURe detect was developed together with Roboception GmbH. This is a software solution for digital material recording. The solution is seamlessly integrated into the process of Capturing - Nesting – Cutting.

 

Read the article here.

 

The edition also contains the annual CAD/CAM overview, in which we are also represented.

 

 


Developers Diaries #10 - Friendship Forever

The Buddy 1015 and PEAKTOURe produce, something grows together. I haven't contacted you for a long time to bring you up to date with our new development of the nesting system. Now it's time again, there is something new to announce. We nested and cut the first pattern on our buddy. As you can see in the picture, we cut exactly where we finally placed the pattern. PEAKTOURe produce will replace CCUT in the future.

Admittedly, the part looks more like an ugly duckling and maybe we should have chosen something more representative for the premiere. In this case, however, we didn't really care, because, as is so often the case in life, it's not the looks that matter, but the inner values. This geometry can really shine because it was already developed in the new CAD. I also tried to figure out what the contour should represent. Nobody could really remember it. It is important, however, that the complexity of the geometry with different symmetries is already relatively high.

 

The next steps will be to be able to address the other cutting tools in addition to the knife. And of course the connectivity to other cutting tables from Zünd and bullmer. Then configurations with conveyor and all other possible extensions will be possible.

So there is still a lot to do in the next few weeks. The user interface shown in the picture is not yet final either, but the direction in which it should go is slowly becoming apparent. We are sure that the usability of the software will also improve a lot.

 

We are slowly starting to see the results of our work and that the efforts of the last few months are bearing fruit. For now we're celebrating PART # 1.

Efficient. Precise. Simple. The RSA Force Lasting System

RG Technologies RSA Force Lasting Production-Technology

Robot System Automation has developed an innovative, semi-automatic lasting machine for stobel or moccassin footwear. The RSA Force Lasting System is simple to use and offers the operator efficient support. The muscle power required for single bars is reduced to a minimum. This allows the workplace to be staffed more flexibly. The daily output is significantly increased and the workplace is more attractive.

 

The Force Lasting Machine offers the possibility to save many parameters, such as size, last shape and upper material. The machine is equipped with a pneumatic automated shoemaker. Two rubber driven rollers which are working in opposite directions bring the upper optimally onto the last. The result is a consistently high and wrinkle-free quality for every upper.

Technical Data:  

Power Supply:

 1 kW
Power Consumption: 220 V
Compressed Air: 6 - 10 bar
Dimensions (mm): 800 x 600 x 1700
Weight: 250 kg

The new RSA Force Lasting System is now available for testing in our showroom. Are you interested? Please arange a personal visit at any time. We look forward to you.
