4- HB2000 Automatic H Beam Production Line

A. Subject of this Product Page on Wuxi JACK Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line:

1. Origin: This page is converted from introduction slides on I H Beam Production Line, for quick review on Usage/ Workpiece Specifications/ Strong Points/ Process Technology/ Layout and Main types of H Beam Production Equipment, being deployed in Wuxi JACK delivered I H Beam Production Line;
2. Goal: We expect this page of slides can be helpful to anyone who have interest on I H Beam Production Line and I H Beam Production Machine, and want to spend the least time to get a general picture on it, either for the purpose of successful purchase, or just plan to have an overall idea.

 

B. Extensive Use of Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line:

1. Function and Finished Working Parts of I H Beam Production Line:

1) Delivery: As its name suggests, I H Beam Production Line produces welding T/ I/ H Beam of light/ medium/ heavy duties, from the minimum 200mm web height, to the maximum 3000mm web height. This is the primary working parts applied in Steel Structure industry:

2) A piece of large welding H Beam, being manufactured from Wuxi JACK I H Beam Production Line: (Fig.1)

2. Uniqueness of Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line and Related I H Beam Production Machine:

1) New H Beam Production Equipment: Recent years, there is a kind of new generation efficient and cost effective H Beam Production Equipment: 3 in 1 H Beam Assembly Welding Straightening Integral Machine (H Beam 3 in 1 Fabrication Machine), which has many advantages in replacing traditional I H Beam Production Line, for producing light and medium duty T/ I/ H Beams;
2) I H Beam Production Line Irreplaceable Capability: Meanwhile, in the field of producing heavy duty welding H Beam, which means welding seam bigger than 12mm on finished T/ I/ H Beam, and needs to be completed with more than one time welding pass on finished working parts, the traditional I H Beam Production Line still has its irreplaceable position. This is benefitting from its 45° fillet welding, in I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine:

C. Classification on Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line:

Based on internal material transferring way among 3~ 4 working zones of I H Beam Production Machine, the I H Beam Production Line can be classified into 2 general types of automatic and semi-automatic:

1. Automatic Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line:

1) Advantages: Automatic I H Beam Production Line has the least degree of human intervention, as shown in banner of this page: Utilizing 60° / 90°/ 180° hydraulic drive Overturning Equipment and Steel Conveyor, WIP (Work In Progress) workpieces flow inside the entire I H Beam Production Line is fully automatic and safe;
2) “Disadvantage”: Automatic I H Beam Production Line involves relative larger workshop land occupation and more investment. And update on its layout involves longer time;

2. Semi-Automatic Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line:

1) Installed with 3 types of basic I H Beam Production Equipment:
 

a) H Beam Assembly and Tack Welding Machine;
b) H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine;
c) H Beam Flange Straightening Machine;

d) I H Beam End Face Milling Machine;
2) Material Flow: Human operation on transferring of WIP (Work in process) working parts among the above listed 3 types of I H Beam Production Machine, are carried out by operators operating on traveling cranes and travel carts, a group of Semi-Automatic I H Beam Production Line is set up;
3) Business Features: Semi-Automatic I H Beam Production Line has smaller land occupation, more flexible layout, and less investment, compared with automatic I H Beam Production Line. It is more applicable for MGPP (Multi-Generation Production Plan) on introducing I H Beam Production Line at customer site.

Slides 2: The Fluent Process Flow in Wuxi JACK Steel Structure I H Beam Production Line:

1) This page of slides gives a graphic view on process technology route in producing welding H Beam, in both automatic and semi-automatic I H Beam Production Line;
2) General speaking, it goes through 5 steps, and involves operation on 5 major types of I H Beam Production Machine:

1. The 1st Step: 1st Operation with CNC Strip Plate Cutting Machine at Beginning Station of I H Beam Production Line:

1) This step is for preparing raw materials on making T/ I/ H Beams;
2) The strip steel boards cut from carbon steel plate will be applied as flange and web of welding H Beam;
 

2. The 2nd Step: Implement Assembly and Stitch Welding on Flanges and Web into T / H Beam, in I H Beam Assembly Machine:

The corresponding H Beam Production Equipment in this step is I H Beam Assembly and Tack Welding Machine:

1) In this step, first one piece of flange and web respectively will be fit up and stitch welded into T Beam;
2) Then, the WIP (Work in process) T Beam is flipped 180°, and sent into the I H Beam Assembly and Tack Welding Machine again, by means of traveling crane;
3) The 2nd piece of flange is loaded into the I H Beam Assembly Machine, to make T Beam into H Beam;
 

3. The 3rd Step: Carry Out Large Current SAW (Submerged Arc Welding) with I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine:

The corresponding I H Beam Production Equipment in this step is I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine:

1) In Automatic I H Beam Production Line:

a) There are 4 sets of LHC Trolley Moving I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine, being deployed in a consecutive straight line;
b) Each set of the LHC Trolley Moving I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine is responsible for completing 1 piece of welding seam on H Beam;
c) Every time 1 piece of welding seam is completed, the H Beam is flipped 90°, and sent to next set of LHC I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine, until all the 4 pieces of welding seams are finished fabrication on H Beam;

2) In Semi-Automatic I H Beam Production Line:

a) There is 1 set of LHA Gantry Moving H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine, or LHT T Frame Open Structure I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine, being applied for completing this task:
b) One set of the LHA/ LHT I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine finishes all the 4 pieces of welding seams;
c) For this purpose, the workpiece H Beam should be flipped 4 times of 90° on supporting rack of the I H Beam Submerged Arc Welding Machine, to perform SAW on H Beam;
 

4. The 4th Step: Flange Straightening with I H Beam Straightening Machine:

The corresponding I H Beam Production Equipment in this step is I H Beam Flange Straightening Machine:

1) Flange Deformation: After the large current submerged arc welding, H Beam flanges usually is distorted upward somewhat due to heat input, which should be flattened out in I H Beam Flange Straightening Machine;
2) Longitudinal Deformation: Sometimes, the distortion along H Beam lengthways is also obvious, which should be straightened with I H Beam Horizontal Press Straightening Machine;
 

5. The 5th Step: I H Beam End Face Polishing with I H Beam End Face Milling Machine:

1) The corresponding I H Beam Production Equipment in this step is I H Beam End Face Milling Machine;
2) This step is for machining end faces of fabricated H Beam, so that these finished working parts can be jointed together for carrying out Steel Structure construction;
 

6. Material Flow among Steel Structure I H Beam Production Machine:

1) In automatic I H Beam Production Line, workpieces 60°/ 90°/ 180° rotating and transportation is fulfilled by means of moving or stationary 60°/ 90°/ 180° Hydraulic drive Overturning Equipment and Steel Conveyor. Operators work is safe and relieved;
2) In semi- automatic I H Beam Production Line, the corresponding material flow is basically completed by operators with operating on traveling cranes. So, operators need to take care on safe operation.
