The invention relates to pipe production, namely the production of pipes of large diameter submerged arc welding of sheet strip material, a molding which is produced on presses-step forming, containing molding knife with punches and a lower beam with process plates, in particular to a device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches and technological plates on the presses-step forming.

A press forming step (Fig. 1) consists of the following main parts: upper (1) and lower (2) frame, infeed roller conveyor (3), the transverse conveyor (4), manipulators (5), the movable bending cross member (6) fixed thereto upper molding tool (driven working rolls of the press (7), fixed on top frame) and lower beam (8) located on her lower molding tool.

The top and bottom of the frame are the main bearing structures of the press, which are all the Executive components and assemblies.

Infeed roller conveyor is used to enter the sheet in the press area and has the capability of raising and lowering for stacking the sheet on a transverse roller table.

The transverse conveyor is used for lateral movement of the sheet floor moulding with a knife.

Manipulators are located on the left and right sides of the press in the quantity of 4 pieces for each �W sides. Are driven from the gearbox via a chain transmission. Manipulators are used to move the sheet moulding under the knife, as well as to move the device during handling operations.

On a movable traverse bending fixed upper molding tool (Fig. 2), consisting of the following main parts: moulding knife (1) mounted on the molding knife mounting of the punches (2), and punches (3). Punches are attached to the fixtures for the installation of punches special mounting mechanisms (4) by means of bolting. Punches, depending on the size of produced pipe billets, there are different radius. So, for each diameter of pipe billets used punch with the required radius of the working surface.

The lower beam is fixed the lower molding tool (Fig. 2), consisting of a set of identical dies (5) and the set of processing plates (6), which regulate the distance between the dies. Each diameter of pipe billets produced corresponds to a specific value of the distance between the dies. During the handling operations on the lower beam only technological change plates, increasing or decreasing the distance between the dies. Choose strikers do not change. In holes of the lower BA�Ki are lifting draw-out rollers (7), which serve for the transportation of finished tubular workpieces from the press on the outlet table.

Thus, when switching to production of other sizes of pipe billets required handling operations, including replacement of punches and technological plates.

A device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches to short stroke the press-step forming of pipes up to 18 m, which includes structure in the form of baths, made by way of welding, equipment for laying and fixing of punches along the longitudinal axis (Fig. 3) (Pass: Device replacement tool o-forming press (18 m). Position 3.1.11. Serial number 5002021-06.400).

Figure 3 shows the current device (1) for the staging of works on replacement of punches on front loading stepwise molding press for pipe length of 18 m ("Caravel"). At the beginning of throughput Caravel over bridge of specks is laid before moulding knife outlet roller table for rolling of pipe blanks press-step forming. Using roll-out carts Caravel rolled under the moulding knife raised by the pull-out rollers, which carry the output of the finished tubular workpieces from the press, and is set so that the last 8 punches (2) are located on� her. Further forming the knife is lowered into the Caravel, pressing punches seats to caravels. Loosened the bolts of the fastening mechanisms of punches, and then molding the knife is raised and the punches remain in the squadron. Further Caravel rolls out from under the moulding knife and an overhead crane is transported for replacement of punches in the storage location. Then an overhead crane placed second blank Caravel on the output conveyor of the press and in the same manner relieve the remaining 7 of punches. After the operation, in two caravels starts relaying of punches. Shot punches a tap placed in special racks for storage, and then in an empty Caravel stack other punches. After that caravels ready to install the new punches on the moulding knife. Installation of punches happens on the same principle. Caravel with the necessary punches laid on the output conveyor, rolled under the moulding knife moulding knife is pressed against the surface of punches, tighten bolts of fastening mechanisms of punches, moulding knife rises, empty Caravel rolls out from under the moulding knife and transported by crane to a storage location. The same operation is performed with the second Caravel.

The disadvantage of this device is the lack of attachment to the structure�and technological plates which leads to the use of another device to replace the technological plates (Fig. 4) (a Passport: the device to replace the slats o-forming press (18 m). Position 3.1.11. Serial number 5002021-06.501). Another disadvantage of the caravels is the length of this device up to 10 m, which allows you to take all the punches with short stroke press-step forming for pipe length of 18 m, resulting in a staging works to use two identical caravels with their alternate transportation in the zone of the press and out of it, and this leads to additional time spent in transit. The design of this device due to the high sides does not provide free access to the fastenings of punches that also leads to additional delays in transhipment operations, and consequently, to a significant increase in their duration.

Figure 4 shows a device for carrying out handling operations on replacing the plates on the press-step forming for pipe length of 18 m. This device is normally used after removal of punches. On a rectangular base (1) mounted attachment for laying the technological plates (2) where fit technological plate (3). It is a device using the overhead crane is placed on the input conveyor of the press forming step for�ACI slab (strip) in the space of the press. The device is rolled into the working space of the press and stops in front of the first two sets of process plates (closest to the forming press operator), then the device with the help of manipulators is shifted to the lower beam of the press. Then using the manual chain hoists are replacing the first two sets of process plates on the right side of the lower beam. Further, the device with the help of manipulators is shifted to the left side of the lower beams and there is a technological replacement plates. Then you need to change the remaining two sets of process plates (farthest from operator), but the length of this device is allows you to immediately begin these operations. To do this, first we need to bring this device to the inlet table press, move along the bottom of the beam to the remaining sets, and then just replace the technological plate.

The closest technical solution (prototype) is a device for staging of works on replacement of punches on long stroke stepwise molding press for pipe length of 12 m (Fig. 5) (Pass: Device replacement tool o-forming press (12 m). Position 3.1.10. Serial number 5002018-06.400), consisting of a rectangular base with a height of 150 mm, the frame of which is made by way of welding of I-beams. On �rasogolla under mounted one line lifting cradle for laying and fixing of punches on the longitudinal axis of the device the total height of which in the collection equal to 500 mm.

Figure 5 shows the current device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches on long stroke stepwise molding press for pipe length of 12 m. This device is placed directly overhead crane in the working space of the press, between the moulding with a knife and right manipulators. Further, this device is shifted with the aid of manipulators under forming the blade so that the lifting frame (2) mounted on a rectangular base (1), is installed directly under the fixed on the molding knife punches (3). Then using lift draw-out rollers, passing through holes in the rectangular base, rises the lifting cradle, pressing the boarding bridge to the punches. Then loosened the bolts fastening mechanisms, moulding knife rises, lifting the cradle is lowered to the base of the device and with the help of manipulators, the device displays under the knife and moulding is installed between the knife and right manipulators. Further overhead crane device is transported to a storage location for shifting of punches. Unloaded shot punches and adaptable to your needs, overhead crane transports the device again in the working space of the press. Set the punches the same way.

The disadvantages of this �of rototype, as the above analogue, are the lack of attachment to the styling of technological plates, which leads to the impossibility of using it to replace technological plates. The presence of one line of the cradle increases the duration of throughput, because throughput, this device should be taken from a zone press to remove from the cradle taken punches to lay the punches of the required size and then transport the device to a zone press to continue-complete handling operations. This operation greatly increases the time of the handling operations. One of the disadvantages of this device are the overall dimensions, excluding the possibility of its use for carrying out handling operations on short stroke stepwise molding press for pipe length of 18 m.

The objective of the proposed device is to increase the productivity tube mill "Height 239" in the production of pipes of large diameter submerged arc welding by reducing time in transit work, most of which is consumed for transportation of the necessary devices to a molding press and back, on movement of the device during the handling operations directly in the working space of the press, the PU shifting�of nanow in devices for replacement of punches. Existing devices for replacement of the punches due to their design features do not allow to change punches for the entire length of the moulding knife and do not allow moving directly under the moulding with a knife. The task is to solve the drawbacks of the existing devices is the design of the device allows to change and punches, and technological plate with the ability to move this unit directly under the moulding with a knife and having two of lodgement under punches that will avoid the operation of passing of punches directly to the device.

The technical result is achieved in that the proposed device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches and technological plates for press forming step containing molding knife with punches and a lower beam with technological plates used in the production of pipes of large diameter submerged arc welding, includes a rectangular base made of sheet metal, is arranged to move during reload operations under the moulding with a knife with the punches, and has mounted the PA fixing it for styling technological plates and is capable of raising and lowering the two parallel lodgement for laying punches.

p> Comparative analysis with the prototype showed that the proposed device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches and technological plates for press forming step (Fig. 6) containing molding knife with punches and a lower beam with technological plates used in the production of pipes of large diameter submerged arc welding, characterized in that the rectangular base is made of sheet metal, is capable of lifting, lowering and movement during handling operations under the moulding with a knife with the punches and has mounted on it fixing for laying the technological plates and two parallel to and fixedly spaced cradle for laying punches. Thus, these differences allow to draw a conclusion about the compliance with the criterion of "inventive step".

Comparison of the proposed device is not only prototype, but also with other technical solutions in this field of technology is not allowed to reveal in them the features distinguishing the claimed device from the prototype that corresponds to the patentability of "inventive step".

Figure 6 shows the proposed device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches and technological plates on front loading stepwise molding press for pipe length of 18 m. priamo�measuring the base (1), made of sheet steel, are mounted is capable of raising and lowering the two parallel lodgement (2) for laying punches (3) and mounted mounting (4) for laying the technological plates (5). Before beginning handling operations in one of the lifting cradle of the device stack of the necessary punches. When the press forming step is finished and start a staging of the work, the proposed device is transported by the input conveyor to the working space of the press and moves the manipulators moulding under the knife so that the empty cradle was established under the moulding with a knife. The knife is lowered by a certain value, after which, using lift draw-out rollers, passing through holes in the rectangular base, rises the lifting cradle, holding the seat to the punches. End the screws fastening mechanisms, descends lodgement with the punches. Further, the device is moved in any direction for change of manufacturing of the plates. Technological plates are shown along the entire length of the lower beam with one side. After that, the device shifts to the other side for a change of manufacturing plates on the other side of the lower beam. The device then move to lodgement with the necessary punches to set �od moulding knife. Raise the cradle, pressing punches to the molding knife, tighten bolts of fastening mechanisms, the empty cradle is lowered onto the base, then the device is not expected, light manipulators from under the moulding knife and on the input conveyor is eliminated from the working area of the press.

The invention is carried out in the shop "Height 239" JSC "Chelyabinsk tube rolling plant" in the production of pipes by the method of submerged arc welding, molding which is produced on presses-step forming, containing molding knife with punches and a lower beam with technological plates.

During the handling operations on short stroke stepwise molding press with two caravels and a replacement technology inserts a significant portion of time is spent on transport work to move all of the aforementioned devices to a zone press and from it (table 1). For example, each squadron transported 4 times. First, an empty Caravel is transported to the press, then, when it was taken down punches, the Caravel is transported to the storage area for shifting of punches, then this Caravel again transported to the press for the installation of punches on the moulding knife and only after that an empty Caravel is transported to the storage area. In addition, in the course of handling operations there is a long period of time about�erace replacement punches directly to the caravels. The length of the device on replacing plates is not possible to immediately change all process plates at one side of the lower beam, which leads to additional time for moving the device along the bottom of the beam.

The use of the proposed device for carrying out handling operations on short stroke stepwise molding press for pipe length of 18 m will significantly reduce the time of handling operations by reducing transport operations (table 2). The device is transported to a zone press in the beginning of throughput, and output from the zone press only on completion of all works. During the works there are moving the device just under the moulding with a knife with the help of manipulators. Also in this case, the operation is completely eliminated by the replacement of punches in the caravels. The design of the proposed device, unlike the Caravel, due to the low sides of the cradle provides easy access to the bolt connections of the fastening mechanisms of punches, which in turn reduces the complexity of the work. Large surface area of the proposed device allows you to move freely on the device, which increases the safety of the operations.

In total, the transit time will be reduced from 420 minutes to 210 minutes at the expense of reducing�will display the total time for transportation from 195 minutes to 45 minutes and the exclusion of the operation of passing of punches in the caravels - 60 minutes.

The device for carrying out handling operations on replacement of punches and technological plates for press forming step containing molding knife with punches and a lower beam with technological plates used in the production of pipes of large diameter submerged arc welding, comprising a rectangular base made of sheet metal, is arranged to move during reload operations under the moulding with a knife with the punches and having mounted on it fixing for laying the technological plates and is capable of raising and lowering the two parallel lodgement for laying punches.
