Davi Unveils New e-POWER Fully Electric Steel Plate Roll Machine at FABTECH 2023
Innovative machine offers unprecedented performance and precision in a compact energy-efficient package
With sights set on revolutionizing the steel plate rolling industry, Davi Inc. unveiled, for the first time worldwide, its new fully electric e-POWER plate roll machine at this year’s FABTECH show in Chicago. e-POWER embodies the highest levels of precision, productivity, ease of maintenance and energy efficiency all within a quiet, compact machine that ensures hassle-free installation.
“In terms of electric plate rolls in the rolling market future, e-POWER is the epitome of Davi’s commitment to innovation and cutting-edge technology,” said Alessandro Soffritti, president and chief executive officer of Davi, Inc. “It is a direct result of Davi’s dedicated research and development department's capability to design new products that push the boundaries of performance.”
When it comes to power and precision, there is no compromising with e-POWER. Because it is electric, the machine achieves a positioning accuracy of five hundredths. This is compared to the typical one-tenth precision normally offered. With such precise control and positioning, the machine ensures repeatable and reliable results for a variety of applications, delivering exceptional quality and accuracy in the end product.
For increased productivity, e-POWER’s smooth and simultaneous movement across multiple axes allows the machine to execute multiple tasks concurrently, saving valuable time and effort. This capability overcomes the limitations of traditional methods for a more streamlined and efficient workflow and higher output.
Service and maintenance are greatly simplified with e-POWER. Maintenance tasks are cleaner and more straightforward, thanks to the system’s single actuator component. Instead of having to disassemble the actuator, users can easily replace it and ship the actuator back to Davi for rebuilding. This streamlined approach means that even a licensed electrician can handle the replacement, eliminating the need for a specialized technician in certain phases.
With its innovative design, e-POWER also minimizes the need for interventions and eliminates points of leakage commonly found in traditional machines. All of which translates into improved reliability and decreased downtime.
To conserve valuable production floor space, e-POWER eliminates the need for hydraulic control units, which significantly contributes to its compact design and makes it more space-efficient. The compact design of e-POWER also makes for easy integration into various production settings. By reducing the number of components, the installation process is simple and less time-consuming, thus, minimizing any potential disruptions to daily operations or routines.
With its advanced technology, e-POWER provides not only superior performance but also significantly reduces energy consumption. As an intelligent system, e-POWER utilizes energy only when necessary, much like the efficient start-stop function commonly found in automobiles. This innovative approach to energy management proves to be particularly advantageous in plate rolling processes where there are frequent idle times during the operation.
In today's rapidly evolving market, where sustainability and energy efficiency are paramount, e-POWER electric plate rolls from Davi are at the forefront of innovation. Such machines significantly reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a greener future. The use of electric equipment in machinery aligns with global efforts to combat climate change and promote sustainable practices across industries.
Moreover, electric plate rolls, like e-POWER, offer additional benefits. These include quieter operation, reduced noise pollution on the production floor and an enhanced working environment for operators. Electric motors also require less maintenance resulting in lower operational costs and increased uptime.
Another notable advantage of electric plate rolls is their versatility. Machines like e-POWER are equipped with advanced control systems that enable operators to program and automate various rolling parameters, including speed, pressure and bending angles. This flexibility not only improves efficiency but also allows for greater customization and precision in manufacturing processes.
“We introduced a paradigm shifting machine to FABTECH attendees in Chicago,” Soffritti says. “Our team looks forward to putting e-POWER to work for manufacturers and job shops throughout the U.S.”
