Busbar processing is a complex process, which allows you to give the right size, shape or punch holes in the aluminum or copper busbars. The most commonly used tools include: benders, hole punchers, cutters or complex busbar processing stations. In its offer ERKO has processing tools, that ensure effective and comfortable work.
HC 125 cutter – it is for cutting Al and Cu busbars with the maximum width of up to 125 mm and the thickness of maximum 12 mm. It guarantees cutting without deformation or burr. It is compatible with electric hydraulic units such as : pump H 800 or aggregates: AH 100, AH 500 or AH 550. The force of this tool is to 190 kN.
Hole punchers are used for punching holes in busbars. They consist of stamp, stamp mount and insert die. The holes can be also punched with a bender-puncher HGD 125. The round hole will have the diameter from 6,6 to 21 mm, whereas the oval hole should have the diameter from 8,5 to 21 mm. The whole process is very accurate thanks to the rulers for positioning of the busbar when punching holes.
HGD 125 bender-puncher described above is mostly used for bending busbars with the bending angle up to 90°. The whole process is highly repeatable thanks to the electric sensor. The force of this tool is190 kN. Another tool worth mentioning is Axial Bender HSK 5010,which is designed for axial bending (“propeller like”) of busbars. In case of this tool we also have an electric sensor that enables the repeatable bending. Lateral bending can be done with the help of HGP 5010 Lateral Bender. This tool is equipped with set of rollers, a stamp with a punch clamp. The force of this tool is 190 kN.
Busbars processing with the help of busbars processing stations
Busbar processing station is a complex station , which can be easily used for: cutting, bending, hole punching or offsetting. They are often used for processing of huge busbars. SH 400 is an example of such a station. It can handle busbars width up to 125 mm and thickness of 12 mm It can be equipped with:
- insert for repeatable bending,
- busbar cutter,
- insert die for busbars offsetting ,
- additional worktop,
- hole punches: round, oval or rectangular.
