Steel sheet shears

Monday, June 20, 2016


Galbiati Group recently manufactured steel sheet shears for a painting plant in the USA.

The steel sheet shears, normally positioned at the outfeed of the system, cut the coil to measure, thereby guaranteeing absolute precision when cutting to length.

Technical data of shears:

  • Sheet thickness: from 0.25 to 2 mm
  • Total weight: 9.000 kg.

Below are photos and a video of shears during the test phases before shipment to the end-customer.

Tunnel Boring Machine Erectors

Monday, June 13, 2016


Galbiati Group has recently built two 4.5 ton- segment erectors for TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine), rotating head, for the excavation of the Qingdao 5-6 metro.

The segments erectors are made up of a fixed structure and a moving one, both made of electro-welded structural metalwork and machined on machine tools.

The fixed part consists of two longitudinal beams on which the sliding guides of wear-resistant material are mounted. The moving part consists of the translating/rotating ring and the pick-up system.

The erectors are equipped with a mechanical pick up unit in order to grasp segments. The mechanical pick up unit grasps and retains segments for the entire duration of the positioning operations with three independent movements:

  • Swinging = ± 5°
  • Pitch = ± 5°
  • Roll = ± 5°

The erectors have also included a coupling plate equipped with bolt benching machine.

Below photos of the erectors completely assembled at Galbiati workshops.

Erectors technical data:

  • Total beams length = 7,000 mm
  • Overall rotation = ± 220°
  • Translation mouvement speed = N/A
  • Rotational speed = max. 2 rpm
  • Maximum load  = 4,500 Kg
  • Weight = ~ 25 ton
  • Intrados diameter  = 5,400 mm
