Priess und Horstmann, weltoffen und doch heimatverbunden
Firma Priess und Horstmann ist ein modernes, mittelständiges Unternehmen in dem kleinen, ostwestfälischen Unterlübbe. Hier haben sich die Nachkommen zweier Familien mit unterschiedlichen gewerblichen Traditionen, dem Holzhandwerk einerseits und dem Schmiedehandwerk andererseits, zu einer glücklichen, neuen Einheit zusammengefunden.
Aus dieser geschäftlichen Verbindung sind in einem Prozess ständiger Auseinandersetzung mit der technischen Entwicklung, Produkte von weltweiter Resonanz hervorgegangen. Trotzdem ist die Verbindung zum heimatlichen Umfeld im Schatten des Wiehengebirges nicht verlorengegangen.
Sie wird weiter gepflegt und zeigt sich nicht allein in dem westfälischen Platt, das in der Firma den Umgangston bestimmt.
AT-DTW-CNC electronically-controlled drilling and assembly machine
BAT-DTW-CNC Electronically-controlled drilling and assembly machine for order-related manufacture of furniture components. On account of its versatility this machine can be used in all sectors of furniture production.
Manual or automatic machine configuration
Workpieces measured and average drill cycles taken
Workpieces can be processed from below, above or horizontally
Drilling mechanisms can be tailored to customer requirements
Cup hinges, mounting plates, joining fittings, sliding door fittings, locks and other furniture fittings drilled and pressure inserted
Fittings fed via magazine or vibration hopper
Man-machine interface via industrial PC with drilling pattern graphic
Decentralised control system with integrated digital positioning / continuous-path control
Drilling and assembly machine BAT-TAX-CNC for front/door and carcase part order batch manufacture.
This machine cycles the workpiece linearly through the processing station. The arrangement of the assemblies is similar to that of the proven concept of the BAT-III-CNC. Similar to this machine type, random processing of almost all front/door parts is possible.
In its basic version, this machine is manually controlled. Although designed for one operator, the new insertion concept helps achieve both character and efficiency of a two-station machine. In this manner, maximum ergonomics is achieved for the operator with a small space requirement. The fittings are supplied from the operating side via magazines or vibration hoppers in close vicinity to the operator.
To increase the output and achieve continuous processing, the assemblies can be linearly subdivided into several stations. The degree of automation of the machine line can be notably increased and the machine utilised more efficiently by the addition of automatic supply and removal systems. Solutions as a production cell or as a throughfeed station are possible.
BOA/BMA-DL-CNC electronically-controlled drilling and assembly machine
BOA/BMA-DL-CNC Electronically-controlled drilling and assembly machine for order-related furniture manufacture.
The modular principle of the electronically-controlled BMA-DLS-CNC type drilling and assembly machine enables the machine to be tailored exactly to the requirements in any given case. The side panels can be run into the machine individually or in pairs. Positioning in front of the machine is either done manually, by automatic feed or directly from a parts storage area.
Parts are processed at one or several stations depending on the quantity structure and fixed output. The side panels are measured and the average tolerances in the workpieces worked out as standard features of the machines, thus wasting no time in the alignment phase.
Other processing options include all edge holes, horizontal drillings, grooving and milling work in any contours and glue application. The fittings, such as mounting plates, cupboard suspension devices, joining fittings, roller drawer guide mechanisms, flap holders, etc., can be assembled automatically. Feeding is via magazines or vibration hoppers.
carcase assembly line for order-related manufacture
Example of a carcase assembly line for order-related manufacture of kitchen furniture.
In this case the installation is designed purely for order-related manufacture of tall, base and wall units. The installation consists of:
1 bridge on the PBA-62M feeding installation without pit, for positioning coated workpieces, in this case side and base panels, in front of the individual machines.
1 drilling and assembly machine BMA-DLS-CNC for order-related manufacture of side panels. Drillings for construction holes, running slats, base supports, joining fittings, mounting plates and cupboard suspension devices, etc. The fittings can be assembled automatically depending upon the degree of automation. Feeding via magazine or vibration hopper.
1 drilling and assembly machine BAT-DTW-CNC for order-related processing of base panels in longitudinal pass (stepping workpiece). Frontal drilling and dowelling and additional drillings from above and below for base runners, uprights, central panels, etc. The base runners are also assembled automatically.
1 feeding and buffer line, designed as an angle transfer and vacuum handling device between the drilling and assembly stations and the press. Area for manual assembling of fittings.
1 feeding and turning device ZWA-1/2-CNC. The side panel that is run in first is turned and lifted on the transverse axis, the second side panel runs through into the carcase press. No additional handling is required for the side panels.
1 carcase press KP-6-CNC for base, tall and wall units. Side panels can be run-in automatically and supporting brackets positioned electronically for manual insertion of base and rear panels. The base panels stand upright. The rear panel is pointing towards the operator.
1 final assembly line, consisting of a turning and uprighting station, final assembly belts, designed as belt conveyors and packaging machine.
KP-6-CNC automatic CNC-controlled carcase press with automatic lateral feed for the manufacture of tall units, base units, wall units, sideboards and chests of drawers, etc.
Unlike the KP-3-CNC press, this machine is designed as standard up to a unit height of 2,500mm and there are six support arms for base panels. In this machine the side panels are fed automatically via the incoming feeding and turning device ZWA-1-CNC or ZWA-2-CNC.
The machine can also be fitted with automatic base panel feeding depending on the degree of automation. If the base and the rear panels are put into the machine by hand, there are electronically-controlled support brackets to assist with positioning. The press can be supplied either with an automatic or semi-automatic nailing or screwing device for rear panels as required.
A further option is a fitting mounting, e.g. for concealed cupboard suspension devices.
