POST-HYDROFORM PROCESSING CELLS
Shearing, Trimming, Punching, Piercing...
Wayne Trail offers complete post-hydroform systems.
This series of steps begin what is usually referred to as the post-hydroform portion of the manufacturing process.
End shears, center shears, trimming, punching, piercing, laser cutting, end sizing, poke yoke, washing and marking are all common processes typically provided in this section of a Wayne Trail post-hydroform system. These processing steps can be completed individually or in combination within modules that are custom designed for a specific family of parts.
With an ever increasing variety of shapes, wall thicknesses and metallurgical properties being designed-in to the tubular shapes that will be hydroformed, Wayne Trails experience in tool design and build provides a strong background when developing the modules and processing steps required to address this critical portion of the process.
Unloading, Transfer, and Racking
Wayne Trail has the correct handling solution for your application.
High performance part transfers are supplied for all automated pre- and post-hydroform systems. Transfers and lift units can be servo, hydraulic or pneumatically driven depending on through-put and application requirements. Tooling is customized for each process module within the system.
Robots and end-effectors for press loading and unloading, or end-of-line conveying, racking or stacking operations can be supplied and fully integrated by Wayne Trail.
