Shipbuilding Plate Roll RP

Shipbuilding Plate Roll RP

Faccin has designed a range of solutions able to meet the production requirements of the shipbuilding and aerospace industriesRP Roll Press is a line of large-sized bending rollsdesigned to bend plates even wider than 20 m. The special machines are able to effectively combine the production speed of a bending press with the versatility of a press brake.

Faccin’s large-sized RP bending rolls feature a solid oversized structure that allows even high hardness plates to be bent very accurately. The two cylinders installed on the uprights of RP bending rolls guarantee the high tonnage of the machines, while the three tilting rolls make it possible to bend conical and asymmetrical parts, typical in the structures of ship hulls. The machine’s rolls feature independent movement: in the “bending roll” configuration, the top roll moves vertically while the bottom two move horizontally. In the “press” configuration, instead, the upper roll is replaced with a tool and a die is mounted on the lower rolls.

Thanks to constant control of all axes during the bending cycle, the machines in Faccin’s RP range offer a finished product of superior quality, minimising the need for subsequent calibration. The roll anti-deflection system makes Faccin’s large-sized RP bending rollsvery versatile, allowing you to bend large and small radii without affecting the maximum rollable thicknesses. The anti-deflection system of the fitted rolls also assures the maximum tolerances of the finished product.

Long Plate Roll HAV-2P

Long Plate Roll HAV-2P

Faccin has many years of experience in the design and manufacturing of special machinesfor the production of pipes. To meet specific production requirements in the industry, the company offers HAV-2P, a series of high performance pipe mill bending rolls able to support the production of pipes delivering productivity, repeatability and automation of the entire process. These pipe production bending rolls are constructed with extremely sturdy electro-welded structures and are fitted with three rolls in thermally treated steel alloys.

The rolls of the special HAV-2P bending rolls are moved independently – the top roll moves vertically, the lower rolls move horizontally – and allow the power of the machine to be fully exploited, depending on the various thicknesses to be rolled. To offer high performance in the production of long pipes with relatively small diameters the lower rolls of the HAV-2P bending rolls are supported by backups for their entire length. The top roll is preloaded to compensate for the flexion during plate bending and may be replaced quickly to extend the range of diameters and thicknesses that can be obtained by rolling.

HAV-2P long bending rolls are designed for rolling plates up to 45 mm thick, ideal for producing pipes up to over 18 m long, complying with certain technical specifications and roundness tolerances and offering a high quality finished product complying with API standards. Faccin is available to design and produce customised solutions that are able to effectively meet the needs of our Customers.

Ship Frame Bender FB

Ship Frame Bender FB

Faccin designs and constructs special angle rolls, widely used in the naval sector as benders for bulbous bows and profile bendersFaccin’s FB Ship Frame Bending Machinerange is the ideal solution for every single or double bending need of bulbous bows, angle sections and T profiles. The angle rolls of the series are unique machines on the market, featuring Faccin’s authentic design and equipped with an innovative guide system that allows the side arms to move in two directions assuring profile bending in both directions. The central locking system fitted to the FB angle rolls also firmly holds the profile during processing.

The FB line Ship Frame Benders are CNC angle rolls featuring full automation of the production cycle.

Shipbuilding Press PPS

Shipbuilding Press PPS

With many years of experience in the production of metal bending machines, Faccindesigns, manufactures and sells special machines for the shipbuilding sector that are widely applied in the building industry as well and in the construction of metal structures in general.

PPS is the line of Faccin presses able to meet a number of needs in metal forming, levelling, bending, curving and 3D modelling. PPS series models are portal presses,universal and versatile machines featuring by a master cylinder which may be equipped with various tools for 3D forming of sheet metal and profiles. Faccin’s PPS shipbuilding presses are supplied with a data collection and monitoring system that makes it possible to optimise the production cycle.

The exclusive structural design and innovative electronic and hydraulic control assure a sturdy, stable shipbuilding press, precise in positioning and reliable over time. Faccin’s 3D PPS forming presses are available with different capacities (from 150 to over 5000 tonnes) and different sizes (from 2 up to 10 m gap between uprights). In addition, for creating an automatic cycle, the machines in the range may be integrated with controlled crane handling systems.

Plate Straightening Machine R Series

Plate Straightening Machine R Series

Faccin’s R series metal plate levellers feature an oversized frame in electro-welded steel which assures maximum reliability and sturdiness.

The main part of the levellers are the rolls in quality steel rolls alloy and heat-treated to be hardened. Each R series machine by Faccin is equipped with 5/7/9 rolls and a couple of extra motorized rolls for easier feeding. The upper rolls are hydraulically positioned and independently adjustable vertically.

They can also be controlled by means of a specific control panel. The lower rolls are also independently motorised through hydraulic motors and planetary gearboxes. Going through this series of rolls, metal plates that are not perfectly straight undergo consistent deformation that becomes progressively less until turning into flattening.

The special anti-flexure system of R series metal plate levellers on the lower rolls makes it possible to maintain maximum tolerances even in the crosswise direction of the plate. The same system on the upper rolls is adjustable according to the thickness of the plate to be straightened.

Faccin is able to design and produce customised solutions to effectively meet Customers’ diverse needs.
