VITAP SIGMA 2TA THROUGHFEED 130 SPINDLE BORING MACHINE $12,500

This VITAP SIGMA 2TA Automatic throughfeed boring machine has  a working table of 2000 mm (78.75″). It feature two opposing horizontal groups (21 spindles left/21 spindles right) for simultaneous end boring in two sides and vertical boring with four independent vertical groups each containing 2 sets of 11 spindles for a total of 88 spindles. All of the vertical spindles also rotate on axis for maximum flexibility in placement. The right side horizontal boring group can be moved over any of the vertical boring groups when drilling narrow parts. The SIGMA 2TA is an automatic version with alternate horizontal/vertical drilling circuit belt conveyors fitted on pneumatic cylinders with front and side pneumatic pushers to align the panels. Mechanical digital readouts control the vertical positioning of the two horizontal heads, longitudinal positioning of the right horizontal group and all the vertical groups. Readout fine tunes down to one tenth of a millimeter. Digital readout for setting of boring depth. VITAP quick-change (includes 43 collets) system supplied on all heads.

***Two horizontal end boring groups, each with 21 spindles.

***Four vertical groups, each with two 11-spindle swiveling heads (split heads) for a total of 22 spindles per group. Horizontal movement of the groups is the same round bar, rack & pinion described above. Manual locking of the right horizontal group.

The right side horizontal boring group can be moved over any of the vertical boring groups when drilling narrow parts.Pneumatic locking of transversal movement of the vertical groups, as well as rotation of the split heads. Longitudinal movement of the vertical boring groups is obtained with a crank handle with a rapid gear ratio. Fine-tuning is achieved with a separate knob that can register down to tenths of millimeters.

VITAP SIGMA 2TA with automatic feed, consisting of two (one left, one right) conveyor belts for automatic positioning of the panels against preset stops, plus front and side pneumatic alignment of the panels. After the boring cycle is completed, the panels are automatically unloaded on the outfeed side of the machine. With this setup, the SIGMA 2TA is very fast and a cycle of up to 25 panels per minute (depending on panel sizes) is obtainable.

***note: missing one numeric read out on far left vertical head

MAY COATING TECHNOLOGIES 450 lb/hr HOT MELT DISPENSER DRUM UNLOADER $15,000

MAY COATING TECHNOLOGIES 450 lb/hr HOT MELT DISPENSER DRUM UNLOADER $20,000

We pulled this Acumeter Technologies/May Coating Technologies model  400 DG MCE off a Black Bros line that we recently sold. This is a fully operational hot melt dispenser drum unloader built in 2006. Very hard to find on the used market.  It is capable of delivery rates up to 450lb/hr- depending on the rheology of the material. It is designed to completely empty the contents of 55 gallon drums of hot melt. It can process chicklets, bricks, pellets or granular in addition to 55 gallon drums. Built in reservoir provides non-stop delivery of the hot melt to the application process. Multiple heat zones to deliver the adhesive at optimum application temperature an minimize thermal degradation. Includes a 20′ delivery hose.
