Printing systems for next-process work information management

Steel plate full-surface printing system

Processing marking data in the full sheet and mark alphanumeric information on to the plate simultaneously to improve accuracy and efficiency.

Printing sample: large characters

A multiple number of printer heads travels across the steel plate and prints characters and diagrams. Running costs and maintenance costs were cut down by reducing the number of heads to less than 1/4 compared to similar conventional methods. Automated high-speed processing ensures high productivity (can process more than 120 plates per day). With a printing speed of 36m/min, a 4.5M25M steel plate can be processed in roughly 250 seconds using 15 printer heads.

Printing sample: small characters and diagrams

Specific advantages
Dramatic increase in the amount of information that can be written on a steel plate. Elimination of writing errors and misunderstanding that previously occurred from handwriting. No need for onsite operators to work in a semi-crouching position. Collective printing not only of processing information, but also of assembly and rigging information. Processing of multiple downstream printing work is possible with a single unit, when installed in the upstream stage of processing. No upper limit to characters, diagrams, and character size.
Information no longer needs to be handwritten Full view of steel plate printing

Improved cutting machine capacity with the incorporation of a line marking function.

KAMS series | NC marking device

Automatic positioning, program rotation and other automatic function helps to improve quality, efficiency and accuracy in marking automation.

LASERTEXZ | Laser resonator-mounted cutting

As one of the largest capacity laser cutting machines of its kind, LASERTEX-Z provides high-precision cutting, high-productivity unmanned operation and other advanced thick-plate cutting performances.

Sigma Box

Laser resonator mounted on machine

A light, compact and strong CO2 laser resonator mounted on the traverse carriage of the cutting machine stabilizes the light path. (Worlds first). Stability of the light axis increases cutting capacity and long-term stability (3-fold compared to conventional machines), and dramatically improves the processing performance of large spans and reduces maintenance needs. (Maintenance instances reduced to half). The scope of application for cutting medium thickness plates is largely expanded when equipped with a V-bevel cutting instrument.

A new nozzle capable of cutting both I and V grooves is adopted, developed based on the highly popular AFT nozzle. An internal high-speed automatic focusing instrument and high-speed, high-quality HSQ piercing allows for stable bevel cutting. An anti-torch collision device prevents damages to the torch block. A plug-in lens holder makes it easier to clean the lens.

KOIKE cutting machines for outer plate processing

MYNUC | NC Plasma cutting machine

MYNUC is a large-scale NC plasma cutting machine suited for cutting outer plates and inner structure materials.

On-board dust collector

KOIKEs development of the worlds first oxygen plasma bevel cutting system began by incorporating a tapering correction function (aiming for zero) for cutting surfaces unique to plasma cutting. This, combined with such high-tech functions as an automatic V-bevel torch angle setting unit and an automatic torch rotating device helped dramatically improve motion speed and cutting processes. With respect to the steel materials of a ship, MYNUC can perform bevel cutting continuously with a torch angle of -45 to +45 degrees for both front and back V grooves with high accuracy. With a cleaner vertical plasma cutting surface and longer life of consumables such as electrodes and tips, the necessary man-hours have drastically decreased. The rigid machine structure allows a dust collector to be mounted on the machine. With a capacity to process large-span plates, MYNUC can cut two components from a single plate. Installation of the lightweight and compact 3D Link helps shorten total processing time and improve productivity. KOIKE succeeded in developing the worlds first cutting machine with an onboard dust collector. Delivery performance: The worlds largest number of units has been delivered to date.

Stand-alone dust collector: With a rigid machine structure, MYNUC can achieve faster speeds and respond to a maximum rapid traverse speed of 45m/min.

VERTEX | NC gas bevel cutting machine

Versagraph boosts productivity by combining highspeed motion with high-quality cutting performance.

Equipped with a function for simultaneously cutting two different gentle curves, VERTEX can cut two plates of symmetrical components, such as the starboard and portside outer plates of a ship, at the same time. CNC control provides functions not only for cutting gentle curves with 2 axes and 3 axes, respectively, but for cutting molds, preliminary line marking, and labor-saving cutting of four-sided surfaces as a CNC flame planer.

The combination of manual angle setting and an-Xbevel block makes it possible to cut I, V, , Y, , X, K, etc. grooves. Various types of bevel cutting are made possible by an automatic angle setting bevel block. An automatic feed rate setting device automatically adjusts the flame, a task that previously required much skill.

KOIKE systems for effective utilization of scrap materials

Navigation system for remnant plate processing

A CCD camera and KAP system work together for the effective utilization of remnant plates and scraps.

Stand-alone navigation system

On-board navigation system

An image of a material placed on the cutting table is captured with a CCD camera, and the KAP system analyzes its shape and dimensions with high accuracy. Part shapes are nested within the outline and converted to NC data in a short time. The system automatically corrects any distortions in the image produced as a result of the unique characteristics of the camera and creates an accurate data of the materials shape to allow for high-precision nesting. Navigation system operation procedure

A CNC or NC cutting machine can be flexibly combined with the system. The stand-alone type allows the CCD camera to be installed on a pillar inside a building, and the onboard type allows the camera to be mounted on a standard cutting machine.
