360° AUTOMATED MOVEMENT FOR HGG

Commissioned by: HGG

Location: The Netherlands

THE CHALLENGE

HGG provides cutting-edge, fully automated 3D profiling machines that give fabricators the freedom to create, craft and construct. 

Their customised tube cutting machine required much more than the standard forwards / backwards motion.

Could Alwayse provide a movement solution that allowed for full 360° movement in a single set-up?

THE SMART SOLUTION

By using Ball Transfer Units fixed to the surface with 6 V-shape handling arms, all weights, sizes and lengths of tubes can be rotated and moved in any direction. An Alwayse Ball Transfer Unit offers:

  • Smooth, efficient movement with little effort and great precision.
  • No need to change machinery or tools.
  • An increase to efficiency by cutting downtime dramatically. 

Complicated 3D profiling made easy through fully automated cutting machines and made possible by Ball Transfer Units. 

Another innovative movement solution from Alwayse.

AT A GLANCE

  • Handles tubes 50-400mm diameter and 1m – 10m length.
  • Heavy Duty 800 Series effortlessly positions loads up to 4,200kg.
  • Innovative thinking shifts productivity and efficiency up a gear.
  • Giving HGG a cutting edge in a highly competitive market.
