Creative technologies from the world market leader GEORG at CWIEME 2011

Newly developed transformer lamination cutting machine from GEORG for production of low loss transformers

Online PR News – 15-May-2011 – – In Asia, Africa, and South and Central America there is an increasing need for a comprehensive energy supply. Countries like India are rapidly expanding the capacity of their electrical networks. For this, economic and advanced transformer lamination cutting machines (TBA machines) are needed that can manufacture step-lap transformer cores. For these special and additional challenges, GEORG will present its latest technologies, such as the TBA400 ECO Line, at this year's Coil Winding Show in Berlin from 24 to 26 May 2011. At the same time, GEORG will announce a transformer lamination cutting machine with swing shear for cutting transformer sheet metal up to a width of 1250 mm and demonstrate the development advantages of a recently delivered cutting machine for amorphous material.

"We are always looking for new ways to create technically superior solutions. That is our motivation, our passion," explains Mark Georg, managing director of the Heinrich Georg GmbH machine works. For GEORG this means - as a world market and technology leader for machines and systems for manufacturing transformers - creatively and flexibly implementing its own technological edge, with a constant eye on customers' needs and values and the best possible result.

GEORG follows this principle with the TBA 400 ECO-Line, which is now available. It was specially designed for the growing demand for high quality and economic machines in India, China, Africa and South America. "With this machine, we are making a robust, precise lamination cutting machine with a low investment.

Furthermore, it offers high speed and simple operation. The strengths of this intelligent solution are naturally on the same high level as all GEORG machines," emphasises Bernd Peter Schmidt, authorised signatory and head of the trafo business unit at GEORG. "We always place value on sustainable results with our technical considerations. That is why the ECO Line also guarantees our customers a return of investment in a short time."

The new GEORG machine is equipped with a two-head decoiler, a hole punching machine and a V notch. Furthermore, it has two fixed shears and choice of two stacking systems for easy stacking (RS/T or HS/T). With the TBA 400 ECO-Line, electrical steel can be cut with a strip width from 40 to 440 mm. Its precision and simplicity are also persuasive, as Bernd Peter Schmidt explains: "No special foundation is necessary for our ECO-Line machines -- no loop pit needed. That means minimal effort during set-up. Thus, we offer a solution specially tailored to customers that ensures optimal results." If service is necessary, GEORG specialists ensure quick and personal support via the online teleservice or on site."

In addition to transformer strip cutting machines, slitting lines (TKS) for slitting grain-oriented and non-grain-oriented electric steel, reactor core metal cutting machines (TRKA) for manufacturing torodial reactor cores, wound core machines (SWA), cutting machines for amorphous material (AMC), core feed tables and core stacking & assembly tables (KLT/KMT), distribution transformer tanks and radiator manufacturing machines (RAD) are also included in the portfolio of GEORG's trafo business unit.

In the scope of this offer, GEORG will also introduce a new development for the manufacture of wound core transformer cores at the trade fair in Berlin. The fully automatic machine with eccentric shear reaches a high belt speed of 120 m/min and achieves a yearly tonnage of up to 15,000 t. "We offer an option with a special belt delivery system that is available for all GEORG cutting machines, an additional, technically superior solution for maximum productivity”, says Schmidt. The head of the GEORG trafo business unit is looking forward to the upcoming trade fair: "We foster a partnership-based and personal relationship with our customers. The open exchange of ideas and the joint technical deliberation lead to optimal results. This is important to us at GEORG. I'm looking forward to the interesting conversations at the Coil Winding Show and to the visitors at our fair stand." GEORG will present its innovations in Hall 2.2, Stand 3503.
