  CNC Bus Bar Line


The Franklin BBF Series Bus Bar Fabricators combine CNC controls, software, auto loading, measuring, high speed punching, labeling, shearing, and sorting into a high performance cell. What was once a custom engineered system has evolved into a series of standard grouped options. The punch and shear operation of copper and aluminum bus bar (unlike steel bar) is a unique engineering challenge.







Franklin Model# BBF40x24 fabricator is a 24-tool dual press system. Each press contains twelve (12) high-speed punches at 200 milliseconds per hit. Standard components of each press are:





- Quick Change Punches and Dies
- Titanium Coated Punches (optional)
- Software Driven Tool Lubrication
- Air Gags with Switch Detection
- Servo Driven Hit Rams
- Hydraulic Stripping
- Servo Press Positioning @ 1500 Inches (38 Meters) per Minute
- THK© Linear Slide Bearings
- Cluster Tools (optional)
- Hardened Punch Piston Guides





A Bar Code Printer & Applicator provides an automatic means of identifying each part. Normal setup includes Part#/Order# combination label.





The Franklin Model# 1506SC-BS Bus Shear provides the cut-to-length for bars up to 3/8" thick. Fabricators designed to run bus bar greater than 3/8" thick is provided with a saw system or saw/shear combination.





The Outfeed Sorting Conveyor moves the finished part down line to a discharge bin. All bins are programmable based on order number or part number. In some cases parts are sorted based on bend requirements.
