What Can General Purpose Edge Milling Machine do for Customer?

1. Function of XBJ Series Universal Use Edge Milling Machine:

1) Edge Milling Machine, or Plate Beveling Machine, is for making grooves on metal plates before welding;
2) In the application field of metal plates fabrication, for example in butt joint welding on two pieces of steel plates, either it is for making the final product of cylinder or any other kind of working parts, or to get the eligible and ideal welding quality, edge beveling and chamfering need to be made ahead of time on these metal plates, by means of the operation of Edge Milling Machine;

3) Below are common seen types of chamfers that can be made with the general purpose Edge Milling Machine

2. Output of XBJ Series General Purpose Edge Milling Machine:

1) As can be seen from the above sketch, with the introduction of General Purpose Edge Milling Machine, you can get either type of the chamfers listed in the above sketch, as well as more special types of bevels, such as round shape edge groove;
2) Either scope of milling angle you desire: 0° ~ +45°, 0° ~ +80°, -45° ~ 0°, -45° ~ +45°… can all be available by means of milling head tilting in the powerful Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine. In this way, the final shape of straight edge, X, K, V, Y, U types of grooves, and round shape chamfer with the use of special facer come into reality;


3. Process Control in Wuxi JACK XBJ Series General Purpose Edge Milling Machine:

1) The standard thickness range of steel plate for beveling in Edge Milling Machine (Plate Beveling Machine) is from 6mm to 50mm. By special made and configuration of milling head and facer blade, as thick as 300mm plate thickness can be processed in Wuxi JACK XBJ series General Purpose Edge Milling Machine;
2) Based on welding technology required, and thickness of steel plate, the working speed of beveling operation in General Purpose Edge Milling Machine is adjustable controlled in stepless manner, and displayed in real time on operating pendant, or human machine interface, as shown in below;

1. Heady duty Precise Linear Guiderail in Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine:

 

What is the Significance of Heavy Duty Precise Linear Guiderail for High Standard Running of the General Purpose Edge Milling Machine?

1. First, let us review the working principle of Edge Milling Machine (Plate Beveling Machine):

1) The Edge Milling Machine makes beveling on edge of metal plate in the way of milling head travels along machine bed along horizontal direction in working speed. As you can find from the below picture; 

Fig1 Edge Milling Machine 156 IMG_20220114_090158

2) For this reason, persistent stable running of milling head carriage along the long Edge Milling Machine bed is of vital importance, on making sure eligible and constant quality of Edge Milling Machine performance;

 

2. The Type and Installation Way of Guiderail in Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine:

1) In Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine, there are two pieces of horizontal linear guiderail assembled onto machine bed: The upper one piece is in upright installation, and the lower one piece is in flat installation, which have perpendicular position with each other. This makes double assurance of stable and smooth running of the milling carriage along the Edge Milling Machine bed. Please check below photo: 
Fig2 Edge Milling Machine 121 IMG_20220111_163025
2) In this respect, such kind of arrangement way of heavy duty precise ball bearing linear guiderail in Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine, can guarantee steadily smooth running of milling head in the largest degree;
3) Besides, in Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine, lubrication of the heavy duty precise linear guiderail can be made either by hand or automatically, depending on preference of customer. Please check below photo;

2. Powerful and Multi Function Milling Head Adopted in Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine:

What are Unique Capabilities of Milling Head in Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine?

 

You know that milling head is the core working element in running of Edge Milling Machine (Plate Beveling Machine). So, what are the competitive edges of milling head in Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine? Below are several typical points for illustration:

 

1. Convenient Revolutionary Speed Change during Running of the Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine:

1) During working of the General Purpose End Milling Machine, to catering for necessary edge milling speed based on changed specifications of working parts, the milling head has 6 to 9 grades of revolutionary speed to exchange;

2) And such speed control is easy to be got in Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine. Please check the above the 1st photo: There are nameplate indicating revolution scope on the face over of milling head. And, just manually turn handwheel at lateral of the milling head, the revolutionary velocity can be adjusted to another grade for the Plate Beveling machine. This gives flexible, easy, and precise working of the Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine;
3) Comparatively, the revolutionary speed change in Edge Milling Machine of other suppliers in the market is much more difficult and inaccurate: You need to uncover the milling head, and install another piece of gear;

 

2. Automatic Tilting and or Feeding in of Milling Head in Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine:

As you can find from the 2nd photo, in Wuxi General Purpose Edge Milling Machine (Plate Beveling Machine), tilting and forward feeding of milling head can not only be made by hand, but also available with motor drive. This improves operation of Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine to better level of automation, accuracy, productivity, and labor saving;

 

3. Productivity of Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine:

The 3rd photo shows milling head and its Ammeter. This is another exclusive configuration of Wuxi JACK General Purpose Edge Milling Machine. With this Ammeter of Milling Head, cutting depth during plate beveling of General Purpose End Milling Machine can be controlled precisely and intuitively: Operator can monitor the working condition of milling head and facer blade by just observing display of Ammeter. This gives useful and powerful function to Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine;

 

4. Protection on Facer Blade Working of Wuxi JACK Edge Milling Machine:

As shown in the 4th photo, to give the milling head sufficient protection against debris during end milling process, we install translucent fender covers all around the milling head in the Edge Milling Machine;

5. For the related discussion of this topic, we give detailed introduction in the product section of Thicker Plate Double Heads SXBJ-125 Heavy duty Edge Milling Machine.
