The machine consists
of a base frame in cast iron construction of 2 m in
length and 1 m in breadth, which carries two rolls slides
displaced each to the other in the length at the top.
In the middle of the machine a strappado consisting
of two slanting-rails with catch-sections is mounted.
strappado (whip) can be lifted by the rolls motor and
the pair of cranks connected with it, laterally displaced
for one crank diameter and after this again be sunk.
plastic transport rolls are driven by a motor with round
belts and move the moulded staves through the production
the front side of the machine frame there two pneumatically
displaceable motor-apparatuses, each with one rounding-off
and pointing head. Before the cutterheads two keeping
tongs can fix the stave on pneumatical control.
The stave leaving the
Rod Milling Machine is driven before the strappado by
means of the transport rolls and is releasing this by
a stop. The strappado undercatches the before driven
stave, brings it into the middle axis of rounding-off
and pointing head and is clamping it simultaneously.
Rounding-off and Pointing head are pushed pneumatically
against the stave ends, work them an retired again.
Then the stave is loosed
from the keeping tongs, the strappado undercatches it
and displaces it up to the outlet-rolls-slide, which
carries to the Rod Sanding Machine. The sanded stave
steps out of the plant in fullautomatic manner.
Specialities of the Construction:
For being a Rod Moulding
Unit either a cylindrically working machine (such as
f.i. type COSMA RA 40) or a formed rods milling machine
(such as f.i. type COSMA U9) is suitable, however only
for straight staves (but maybe also formed ones).
For finishing of the
staves either the Rotating Belt Sanding Machine type
COSMA UDB can be employed. The COSMA UDB is sanding
the not-turning stave by a rotating sanding-belt system
in very clean manner.
Instead of the rounding-off
and pointing units also a boring or sawing unit can
be chosen or another individual working apparatus for
a special purpose.
of a demand we ash you kindly to inform us in detailed
manner about stave-diameter,
length, type of wood, wished capacity, also. So that
the whole plant can be
adjusted in construction for the individual situation.
