Davi Inc. has unveiled its new fully electric e-POWER plate roll machine at this year’s FABTECH show in Chicago.
“In terms of electric plate rolls in the rolling market future, e-POWER is the epitome of Davi’s commitment to innovation and cutting-edge technology,” said Alessandro Soffritti, president and chief executive officer of Davi, Inc. “It is a direct result of Davi’s dedicated research and development department’s capability to design new products that push the boundaries of performance.”
Because it is electric, the machine achieves a positioning accuracy of five hundredths, compared to the one-tenth precision normally offered. This degree of precision and control ensures repeatable and reliable results for a variety of applications, Davi says.
The machine’s smooth and simultaneous movement across multiple axes allows it to execute multiple tasks concurrently. This capability overcomes the limitations of traditional methods for a more streamlined and efficient workflow and higher output.
Maintenance tasks are cleaner and simpler thanks to the system’s single actuator component. Instead of having to disassemble the actuator, users can replace it and ship the actuator back to Davi for rebuilding. This means that a licensed electrician can handle the replacement, eliminating the need for a specialized technician in certain phases.
To conserve production floor space, e-POWER eliminates the need for hydraulic control units, which contributes to its compact design and makes it more space-efficient. The compact design also eases integration into various production settings. With a reduced number of components, the installation process is simple and less time-consuming, thus minimizing disruptions to daily operations or routines.
