EFFORTLESS MOVEMENT OF METAL

Commissioned by: Akyapak

Location: Turkey

THE CHALLENGE

AKYAPAK drilling machines provide high quality manufacturing and application solutions to many industries.

They required effortless movement of steel plates up to 80mm thick and 750kg that improved efficiency. 

Could Alwayse provide a movement solution to eliminate manual labour?

THE SMART SOLUTION

Alwayse worked with AKYAPAK to build a Ball Deck for their CNC plate drilling machines and lathes. This allowed for:

360° movement in all processes including milling, drilling, boring and slotting etc. with minimal effort, despite the weight of the plates.

Multiple plate sizes could now be handled without resetting the machine, greatly increasing efficiency. 

Smooth, low friction, multi-directional movement. That’s why we’re Alwayse a Smart Move.

AT A GLANCE

  • Precise 360° movement of heavy plates up to 750kg and 80mm thickness.
  • Handling multiple plate sizes without resetting the machine.
  • Less manual labour – increased productivity leading to greater efficiency.
