WEISS Large Plate Machining Value Added Service

This is a time lapse video of the WEISS Large Plate Machining Capabilities. This is a value added service that we offer to all of our customers.

The plate depicted in this video was specified by UC Berkeley for a very complex test fixture and measures 93″. The plate has over 1,400 holes that are machined, tapped and chamfered – not including the mounting holes for the indexer.

This application is representative of the size and scale of large plate machining that WEISS can offer to our customers directly from our Willoughby, Ohio facility. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for your large plate machining needs.

WEISS North America offers Fixed-Station Rotary Indexing Tables, Freely Programmable Rotary Tables, Linear Assembly Systems, Handling Modules, Application Software, Custom Machine Chassis, Custom Dial Plates and Customer-Specific Solutions to serve the automation needs of our customers.

We offer world-class products, service and support and stand behind everything we do with an “Industry Best 4 Year Standard Warranty”.

WEISS Index Table Concentricity Testing Procedure Delivers Results For Customers

Here is a video of the WEISS Index Table Concentricity Testing Procedure that is performed on every rotary index table and dial that we produce.

During this process, the dial or rotary index table is mounted directly to “the customer’s actual indexer” to ensure that there can be no variability and that our customers receive absolute precision. This process is offered free of charge to all WEISS customers and we provide our customers with the resultant data so that they have a record of all concentricity measurements for each station.

Although most companies do not provide a similar benefit to their customers, we have found that this added measure of communication helps to reduce questions and concerns when it comes to mounting the tooling onto the table, which, in turn, accelerates installation and overall implementation time.

WEISS Coordinate Measuring Machine Process (CMM) Delivers Reassurance To Customers

Here is a video of the WEISS Coordinate Measuring Machine Process (CMM) that is performed as a value added service for our customers when required.

WEISS provides this value added service to our customer for a nominal cost depending on the numbers of point that need to be measured. During this process, WEISS loads the actual solid model into the CMM software which enables us to compare the final production dial or plate with the customer’s solid model and plot the difference, if any.

The results of this procedure are extremely valuable to many of our customers and the resulting data provided is a great asset during implementation when it comes to mounting high precision tooling.

Large Rotary Table Technology & Precision Proves Size Is A Non-Issue

Fast, Versatile, Reusable. WEISS has begun a new chapter in the history of the rotary table with the introduction of their Torque Range (TO) Series of indexing tables. This high-tech drive that operates predominantly without mechanics or gearboxes is the logical response to changing market requirements and ever-changing customer demands. Until recently, these direct-drive tables … Read more

Why Purchase A 4 Axis SCARA When You Only Need 3 Axes?

The WEISS intelligent 3 axis system surpasses traditional 4 axis SCARA robotic performance. FOUR AXES ARE EXCESSIVE Traditional, tried-and-true SCARA systems remain a very popular solution for palletizing and tray packing applications. However, their typical design configuration features four axes consisting of two rotary axes and one lifting swivel unit, which is generally not needed … Read more

The WEISS LS280 Linear Assembly System Allows Single Or Double Strokes In The Same System

For the assembly and testing of proportional solenoids, 50 individual processes had to be brought together in a single system. Linked rotary indexing tables would have compromised accessibility and the cycle rate of conventional linear transfer systems was too low. As a “straight rotary indexing table” the LS280 linear assembly system from WEISS offers fast … Read more
