VINYL TOOLING

Abbottstown Industries has been a leader & innovator in the Downstream Extrusion Equipment business for over 20+ years. With our philosophy of performing maintenance in you maintenance shop and not on the Production Floor along with easy to setup and maintain tooling equipment. We can help with cutting cost due to downtime online along with cutting down time costs as well. We Design, Manufacture, & install everything downstream from your Extruder! Whether it is Embossing, Forming (Calibrators), Water Tables, Slotting, Pulling, Perforating, Punching, Cutting, or Stacking, we do it all & customize it just for you.

A properly formed product is the key to a vinyl extruder’s success. The accuracy and repeatability affects all the other equipment on the line.

Our Calibrators or Sizers for Panels and Accessories are manufactured from Tool Steels that provide superior wear resistance and allow extremely smooth surface finishes. This contributes to less downtime and more product that is free from defects. The Cooling and Vacuum ports are designed to help “set” the material, yet allow for easy access when necessary.

Remember custom is what we do!

Please contact us with your specific requirements. Our expert staff awaits the opportunity to meet your needs.

Our electric embossing stand is ideal for situations where safety or availability prohibits the use of heated oil. A three phase electric supply along with compressed air is all that is needed to make the unit function.

An AC variable speed drive allows the operator to perfectly match the speed of the product. The drive can be interfaced with the process encoder to allow for variance in product speed. Air cylinders engage and disengage the heated roll. A precision thermostat controls the roll temperature to maintain a consistent process by using Heat Cartridges that are inserted into the Embossing Roll.

A wide variety of patterns can be machined into the roll.

The ability to change quickly from one product to another is a big advantage that our embossing roll stand offers. It is rugged and durable yet simple to operate.

The stand can hold between 1 to 4 Embossing Rolls, with 1 lower Rubber Roll. Pneumatic cylinders raise the rolls to allow them to be switched in just a few minutes. The stand also contains either 2, 3, or 4 integral Temperature Controlling Rolls to help cool or heat the material before entering the remainder of the line. The entire stand is mounted on tracks, which allow it to be moved during setup or maintenance. Customer specification of Electric Drive manufacturer is encouraged to standardize electrical equipment on the production floor. The standard unit has two separate Drives, with the Temperature Controlled Rolls being slaved to the Master Drive for the Rubber Roll. Heated Oil is circulated thru the Embossing Roll, while Chilled water is circulated thru a Pan in which the Rubber Roll revolves in. Separate Temperature controlled water is pumped thru the Temperature Controlled Rolls.

Simple Embossing Stands are also available!!

Heat transfer rolls are designed and manufactured to the quality standards of the ASME Code for pressure vessels. Certified welders fabricate the rolls with the best available materials. Experienced machinists using modern equipment finish each roll. One hundred percent inspection and testing assure quality in every detail.

Heat transfer rolls are available in single or double shell configuration. They are also available with a spiral flow path in the double shell rolls. This spiral forms a sealed path between the inner and outer shell. This technology produces a constant product temperature across the face of the heat transfer roll. Normally, surface temperature variations on our spiral heat transfer roll will not exceed +/- 1 degree Fahrenheit.

Ceramic coated rolls provide superior hardness, durability, abrasion, corrosion, and chemical resistance. The high density surface has a hardness of 68-72 Rc and very low coating porosity. Even though it is initially more expensive than chrome finishes, the ceramic coating reduces your overall costs. The longer life of the finish will reduce your downtime and improve your product quality.

All rolls can be coated with our composite coating. This material is a composite ceramic and release agent that provides the superior wear and corrosion resistance of ceramic with high release properties. This coating is ideal for extrusion applications that need to minimize tacky cooling surfaces.

Idler rolls for all web handling applications are available. They can be chrome plated or plasma coated with ceramic for abrasion resistance.

Rubber coated heat transfer rolls are available with most polymer coatings.

Engraving patterns are available from most engraving companies. We can coordinate the application of the engraving pattern of your choice on our heat transfer roll core to give you a single supply source.

A data sheet is available for preparation of a quote and delivery schedule.

A press that cuts consistently is a valuable asset to the extruder’s process. It allows for a more consistent panel length, thereby reducing scrap and also allowing the extruder to run their cut length at the bottom of their tolerance, hence saving material.

Our presses are designed to accomplish this goal. The oil shear clutch and brake causes the top platen to stop more consistently than the systems used on other brands of presses. In addition, the control system is constantly adjusting to the variables of air pressure and temperature. Special consideration was given to designing a press that would be safe, durable and require little maintenance.

Our Full Size Press has two different Rail spacings (size suitable to run Skirting panels), while our Midsize Press has only one Rail spacing. All Press Rails are manufactured from Hardened & Precision Ground Tool Steel, to provide Accuracy & long life! Our Top Guard hinges and swings out of the way to provide access from 3 sides. An Automatic Lubrication System lubricates all Press moving parts as well as providing (2) Flexible lubrication lines to attach to the Dies or Carriages.

A complete quick-change die system is available to be used in these presses. With this system, dies can routinely be changed in less than 1 minute.

Please review the specifications to see which one of our presses could be an asset to your manufacturing environment.

We have designed two systems to quickly and accurately change vinyl cutting tools. This reduces the lost time due to product changes and maintenance. Our Quick Change Dies can be changed in less than one minute!!

OUR DIES

From panels to accessories, our dies are being used to cut many different shapes and profiles of extruded vinyl. Our die shoes are made from QC10 Aircraft grade Aluminum & A36 HRS Steel. We use high quality Hardened Tool Steel for all cutting edges. Our panel dies use a laminated blade to provide a very clean cut improving the quality of the product, and for ease of sharpening. Our Autodetab cutters are designed for ease of adjustment and prevent marking of the panel face. We have a modular design that allows us to use the same components for different size products. Keeping things standard in this non-standard business is our JOB. This also allows us to keep items on the shelf and produce items in mass quantities keeping our replacement costs low and deliveries quick!  Our tooling utilizes a Positive Cam design for horizontal cutting (ie, Butt Cutting), versus our competitors cams which uses a spring for retraction, causing Jam-ups.

The Spring slugless dies are ideal for accessory cutting. A dual or quad configuration can be used to cut several pieces at once or to avoid changing dies during a product change. Guillotine dies are ideal for panels such as soffit, which do not require an overlap notch.

Our dies have many features that bring a quick payback to the user. They have been designed to be both durable and light. The ease of adjustment and sharpening helps reduce the cost of maintenance. The use of durable Hardened Tool Steel for cutting edges extends tool life. Other die components are made from anodized aluminum, Bronze, Zinc Plated mild steel or stainless steel to minimize corrosion.  Our Dies come complete with a Lubrication Divider valve to provide one shot autolube to all points inside die needing lubricated. A quick change coupling provided, allows a customer to attach the die to the press’s Lubrication system. Or it can be hand lubricated.

CARRIAGE STYLE QUICK CHANGE

This system starts with carriages that are mounted in the press on the Top & Bottom Press Rails. The dies are easily removed and replaced and are securely held in place with pneumatic clamps. The Lower Bottom Carriage has pneumatic cylinders, rails, wear plates, & an Accelerator Cylinder Bracket that is connected to the accelerator cylinder for flying shear cut off operation. The Bottom Carriage and die can be coupled to the press lubrication system, which lessens maintenance time. The Top Carriage is lubricated by the Bottom Carriage. This system is a standard option for our own line of presses and has been adapted for use in most brands of presses used by the vinyl industry. The dies can also be supplied with rails to be used in end-load applications with minimal assembly back and forth.

RAIL STYLE QUICK CHANGE

This system starts by placing a Rail Mounted Backwards on the opposite operators side of Press top Platen. Then by sliding & attaching Bottom Carriage to Accelerator Cylinder Clevis. With this style, we can keep a standard Press Shut Height between Quick Change & Endload dies. The Dies are easily removed and replaced and are securely held in place by pneumatic Clamps. The Bottom Carriage & Die can be coupled to the press lubrication system. This is a standard option for our own line of High Speed Flying Shear Presses, and has been adapted for use with most brands of presses used in the vinyl industry. The dies can also be supplied with rails to be used in end-load applications with minimal assembly back and forth.

ENDLOAD DIES

We also offer standard Endload Dies for Flying Shear Presses. These dies have a Lower Transition Slide that bolts onto the Bottom Die Shoe. The lower Transition Slide base has rails & wear plates. There are Spacers, Wear Plates, & Rails that bolt onto the Top Die Shoe. This will allow a customer to slide the die into the downstream side of the press for operation.

Remember custom is what we do!

Please contact us with your specific requirements. Our expert die staff awaits the opportunity to meet your needs.

Our Rotary Nailslotters or Drag style slotters are being used at line speeds in excess of 200 feet per minute. Their durability and quality results have made them the choice of many extruded vinyl manufacturers. Using our Standard Quick Change Mounts, customers can change from a Panel Nail Slotter Insert to an Accessory Nail Slotter Insert in less than one minute!

OUR NAILSLOTTERS!

NAIL SLOTTER INSERT

The rotary blades are manufactured from premium grade high-speed steel and are driven by the product. The anvil blocks are supplied with carbide inserts for long life. We can accommodate many different slot sizes and spacings. Slug chipping blades are also available to cut the scrap into small segments that can be sent directly back to the extruder.

When used in a quick-change system, our nail slotter inserts can be changed in less than one minute. Any needed maintenance can then be done without disrupting production. This system can be supplied as a stand-alone unit, on a Puller Mount quick Change Plate, on a Stand Alone Frame, or in combination with other units such as a weephole punch, Puller, or as a complete quick-change system with any of the above units.

MULTIPURPOSE SLOTTER

A Multipurpose Slotter configuration uses 2 Quick Change Slotting Inserts on the same frame to slot both legs of Inside and Outside Corner post simultaneously. This special frame allows both units to rotate 45 degrees either up or down from the horizontal position to provide maximum versatility. The units are also fully adjustable vertically (electrically or manually) to align with the product flight line. This Frame can also be used to Slot all Accessory Products along with a standard Panel. As easy as changing out one Nail Slot Insert with a Weep Hole Insert, and your off and running! We have a modular design that allows us to use the same components for different size products. Keeping things standard in this non-standard business is our JOB. This also allows us to keep items on the shelf and produce items in mass quantities keeping our replacement costs low and deliveries quick!

Our Slotters have many features that bring a quick payback to the user. They have been designed to be both durable and light. The ease of adjustment and sharpening helps reduce the cost of maintenance. The use of durable Hardened Tool Steel & Carbide for cutting edges extends tool life. Other slotter components are made from anodized aluminum, Bronze, Zinc Plated mild steel or stainless steel to minimize corrosion.

AIR ASSIST OPTION

We also offer an Air Assist option in which an Air Motor is attached to the Nail Slotter Shaft to reduce drag on the Part & Puller. You cannot run a Part thru on the bench without helping push the product thru. This works well when a Slotter has more than 2 blades on one shaft.

SOFFIT SLOTTER

Special units to punch slot vent openings in soffit panels valleys have been designed and are in use in several facilities. These units use an integral puller to provide smooth and trouble free operation. We have several different styles. Please ask for info!

Patterned hole perforators are designed for high speed perforation of vinyl soffit. Hole patterns are the customer’s option. All components are machined to precise tolerances. Precision is critical due to the number of components in this style of rotary perforator. All Punch Rings, Die Button Rings. & Shafts are machined on CNC indexing milling machines that will produce finished part tolerances within +/- 0.0001 inch.

We have designed the Punches and Die Buttons to give exacting production performance. A spring loaded, Precision Ground, Zero Clearance, Antibacklash gear system has been designed to provide precision alignment of the punching and die shafts.

Basket weave perforators are also specially designed for high speed perforation of vinyl soffit. They may be used in the production line or off line as desired by the production crew.

All punching wheels and die wheels are machined to exacting tolerances. This precision punching mechanism will eliminate most of the product distortion normally encountered in this application.

Patterned hole and basket weave perforators can be designed to perforate center vinyl, double five, triple four, or other profiles of soffit with ease, along with Corner Bead (for Plastering applications). Replacement components are reasonably priced and precision made.

Drive motors are AC powered & geared to operate at the customer’s optimum operating speeds. Customer specification of electric drive manufacturer is encouraged to standardize electrical equipment on the production floor. Utilization of a combo PLC\HMI for Speed control & machine functions make operation easy!
Adjustable product guides and fully enclosed safety guards are standard on all rotary perforators.

We can also rebuild existing patterned hole or basket weave perforators and manufacture any needed replacement parts for the worn equipment.

In order to perforate extruded vinyl, an extremely rugged and accurate machine is needed. Alignment of punches to dies is critical to long cutting life and a quality product.

Our perforating machines accomplish this through use of zero backlash gearing. This gearing, along with holding tight tolerances on all parts, produces a machine that will enhance productivity and improve quality.

We also manufacture machines to produce a basket-weave pattern. The absence of slugs makes this a desirable process to some manufacturers.

Remember custom is what we do!

Please contact us with your specific requirements. Our expert staff awaits the opportunity to meet your needs.

Similar to our Nailslotting line, our Rotary Weep-hole Punch Inserts or Drag style Weep-Hole Punches are being used by a large number of vinyl siding manufacturers at line speeds in excess of 200 feet per minute. They have proven to be effective in producing a quality product while helping to reduce manufacturing costs. Their durability and quality results have made them the choice of many extruded vinyl manufacturers.

The punch wheel is Urethane coated and driven by the product. The punches and anvils are manufactured from high-speed steel and machined to match the customer’s product profile, producing a clean cut. A pneumatic cylinder is used to engage and disengage the punch wheel from the product.

The Weep-hole units are supplied as a quick-change insert. The Weep-Hole Insert can be mounted by itself or on a Puller Mount Quick Change Plate, Stand Alone, or with another piece of equipment, such as a Nailslotter, or Puller. Using our Standard Quick Change Mounts, customers can change a Weep-Hole Insert in less than one minute!

Our Weep-Hole Inserts have many features that bring a quick payback to the user. They have been designed to be both durable and light. The ease of adjustment and sharpening helps reduce the cost of maintenance. The use of durable Hardened Tool Steel & Carbide for cutting edges extends tool life.

Our scrap cutting machines are designed to contribute to the safety of your operation. Scrap is cut into manageable lengths for regrinding or removal. They eliminate the need for cutting the product with saws or shears and the injuries associated with these methods. Our optional accumulator keeps scrap off of the floor, preventing tripping and slipping hazards. They also reduce the man-hours required during product set-up.

The design of our machine incorporates two knives mounted in rotating shafts. Zero backlash gearing connects the shafts. This causes the material to be cut in a shearing action. The knives are manufactured from Hardened Tool Steel and can be sharpened.

The machine has adjustment to work at most product flight line heights. A speed potentiometer varies the speed of the 5 horsepower DC motor to match the product speed. Speeds up to 240 feet per minute can be accommodated. An adjustable timer is used to vary the length of the scrap to suit the customer’s needs.

We are able to supply a variety of options for this machine. The frame can be supplied with casters to allow either in-line or cross-line movement of the machine. Another frame option is a swing-frame arrangement, which swings the entire machine out of the product line. An optional accumulator table is available to capture the scrap until it can be transferred to a rack or cart. The table has a pneumatic dump action to make this a fast and convenient operation.

The machine is fully guarded and interlocked to guarantee safe operation.
