AUTOMATIC MACHINE FOR ASSEMBLING OF SHANKBOARD
This machine allows the heel seat linings to be laminated to the insoles, which were previously glued.
The insoles arrive directly from gluing and enter the machine through the input conveyor belt. The heel seat linings are stacked in the loader by an operator and are gravity-fed into the laminating device. Here they are picked up by a suction cup mechanism that turns them and places them one at a time above the glued insoles.
At this point the insole is pushed against the heel seat lining by a specific cylinder inside the machine in order to perform the laminating. The laminated insole and heel seat lining are ejected from the laminating device and sent onto the output conveyor belt. This moves them towards a roller that presses them, completing the laminating operation.
Through many different types of adjustments, the machine allows different sizes and shapes of insoles and heel seat linings to be laminated. The touch screen programming keypad also allows different work programs to be saved (each with its own parameters) along with the values of certain manual adjustments (see secific sections). These parameters can be recalled and displayed whenever the product being processed must be changed.
