Profile-bending machine drive

FIELD: technological processes; engines and pumps.

SUBSTANCE: drive includes an engine, reduction gear, roll rotation sprockets skirted by roller chain, power train and idler sprocket, with power train positioned at the inlet side of machine. Four rolls of each mill lie in the same diametric plane and form two strips simultaneously. To rotate the rolls the chain grips opposite left or right sides of vertically adjoining sprockets of one mill in sequence, and passes from lower sprocket of the previous mill to upper sprocket of the next mill along the rolling course.

EFFECT: reduced production cost due to simpler and cheaper machine drive.

The invention relates to mechanical equipment rolling mills and can be used in roll forming mills, for example, for the production of corrugated sheets.

The drive of such mills is largely similar to the drive section mill hot rolling and, as a rule, is a group, i.e., the rotation of the work rolls all stands using one motor with adjustable speed. Features drive existing forming mills is described, for example, in the book edited by Istoricheskogo "Production of roll-formed sections (equipment and technology)", M.: metallurgy, 1982, s-149. In recent years, an increasing distribution has a chain drive forming mills, characterized by relatively low energy consumption and simple design that reduces capital and operating costs when profiling.

Known drive roll forming mill with circuit envelope sprocket rotation of the rolls on the S-curve, the drive cage arranged in two parallel rows, and the support of stars between them, which makes possible the independent profiling of two bands (see U.S. Pat. Of the Russian Federation No. 2256522, CL B21D 5/06, publ. in BI No. 20, 2005). However, this drive is unsuitable for a mill stand which has four working roll and formed into two PR is the profile.

Analogous to the claimed object is a drive roll forming mill in U.S. Pat. Of the Russian Federation No. 2244604, CL B21D 5/06, B21B 35/00, publ. in BI No. 2, 2003

This drive includes a motor, gear, sprocket rotation of the rolls, surrounded by a chain of Halle an der Saale, drive and idler gears, and the drive wheel is located on the inlet side of the mill, and is characterized by the fact that the torque is transmitted only from the lower rolls and even the last of the stands, as well as both of the rolls first (specify) stand, bend around the sprocket chain on S-shaped and sinusoidal curves.

This drive is also unacceptable for a mill stand which is formed into two profile with four rolls.

An object of the invention is the reduction of production costs by simplifying and cheapening drive mill, forming two bands simultaneously.

To address this problem, the drive roll forming mill for the production of corrugated sheets simultaneously from two lanes, drive cages which contain located in a common diametrical plane of the four drive roll with stars of rotation, includes motor, gear, idler gear and located on the inlet side of the mill power gear, a chain of Halle an der Saale, consistently envelope opposite left and right sides adjacent vertically stars in the stop of one cage and turning with the lower sprocket previous during the drive rolling mill stand on the top sprocket subsequent drive cage; the drive is designed for mill having 16-20 drive cages; the drive is designed for mill, interstand distance which is 1,5...2,0 maximum diameter of the rolls.

The essence of the proposed solution lies in the choice of this scheme coverage chain sprocket rolls, which drives all of the rolls of the mill, as well as in the determination of the optimal number of trains and minimum interstand distance, which reduces the required length of chain gall and reduces the cost of the drive.

The inventive drive profile bending machine is schematically shown in the drawing (arrow - a direction moldable strip).

The actuator includes a motor 1, gear 2, power 3 and stretch 4 gears and sprockets 5 drive roll mill 6 mill covered endless roller chain (gall) 7.

This circuit 7 sequentially covers the top 8, two medium 9 and the bottom 10 each asterisk stands and stretches through gears 4 (short arrows show the direction of rotation of the sprocket wheels and the movement of the chain). In each stand, the chain comprises successively, from top to bottom, right or left toothed sectors (shaded) sprockets 8, 9 and 10, which provides the required direction of rotation of all four rolls and movements of the two strips a and B in the same direction).

It is currently owned by agenie power wheel on the inlet side of the mill gives a steady chain tension, preventing unwanted "jerks" rotating stars. The recommended number of drive cages (16 to 20), and the value of the interstand distance l=(1,5...2,0) D (here D is the maximum value of the diameter of the main roll) minimizes the length of the chain and provides high-quality molding corrugated strips with the desired number of corrugations on their width.

Chain drive easy to use, but requires periodic lubrication of the teeth of the sprockets and wheels. For continuous operation of the circuit is its gradual extension that causes excessive "slack" chain with possible jumping of teeth; in this case, the required chain tension is achieved by the corresponding movement of the tensioning wheel.

Experimental validation of the proposed actuator carried out on one of the forming mills Magnitogorsk, producing corrugated sheet sections.

To this end, the location of the circuit corresponds to the circuit in the drawing (it is only possible for simultaneous profiling of two bands with all the drive rollers of the mill). In the experiments varied the number of actuating the forming mill (18 to 23), and the value of the interstand distance (in the range from 1.3 L to 2.5 D).

The best results (minimal production costs at the required quality corrugated sheets) obtained i.e. monitoring) reference and proposed technical solutions. In other embodiments, actuator performance deteriorated. Thus, when the number of trains N<16 achieved the required geometry worksheets with multiple corrugations, and when N>20 chain length hampered the operation of the drive that led to unplanned downtime of the mill (and the increase in production costs). To poor maintenance of the mill led l<1,5D, and when l>2D - increased the length of the actuator and the circuit with these negative effects. The value of D in the experiments was in the range of 350 to 400 mm; used single-row roller chain with step t=20 mm and a breaking load of 3.8 cu (GOST 5528); the drive power is 120 kW, maximum speed profiling - 70 m/min

Known actuator, taken as the closest analogue, not tested due to deliberate it is unacceptable for the simultaneous profiling of the two bands. Thus, the experiments confirmed the acceptability of the proposed technical solution to achieve this goal and its advantage over the known object.

According to feasibility studies conducted in the Central laboratory of OJSC "Magnitogorsk iron and steel works, the use of the invention in the manufacture of corrugated sheets will reduce costs (compared to existing roll forming mills with the same output) is almost 5 times.

The diameter of the work rolls D=380 mm, the value of l=1,75·D=1,75·380=665 mm
