Description

  • The present invention relates to a machine for working door and window component parts of wood or similar.
  • In the following description, "door and window" is intended to mean doors, windows, and furniture doors comprising an annular frame, and a panel, e.g. a pane of glass, fitted inside the frame.
  • Door and window component parts are worked on a machine comprising an elongated bed with two longitudinal guide members parallel to a first horizontal direction; a number of cross members fitted between the longitudinal guide members and movable along the longitudinal guide members in the first direction; at least one clamping device fitted to each cross member to clamp at least one component part; a bridge crane movable in the first direction along the bed; and a machining unit movable along the bridge crane in a second horizontal direction crosswise to the first direction.
  • To begin with, the component part is normally elongated and substantially parallelepiped-shaped, is clamped by the clamping device in a direction parallel to the first direction, and is shaped longitudinally to form a cavity bounded vertically by two ribs parallel to the first direction, and one of which is detached from the component part to form a bead by which, in use, to secure said panel to the other rib.
  • Known machines of the above type for working door and window component parts of wood or similar have several drawbacks, mainly due to the bead detached from the component part falling on the cross members, so the machine must be stopped to allow the operator to remove the bead from the machine, thus resulting in relatively long operating cycles.
  • Moreover, since each bead is eventually fitted purely randomly to a respective component part, known machines of the above type for working door and window component parts of wood or similar have the further drawback of the grain of the component part failing to match that of the bead and so impairing the look of the door or window.
  • Document EP-A-1247611 , on which the preamble of claim 1 is based, discloses a machine for working workpieces of wood or similar comprising a bed extending in a first direction; at least two cross members extending in a second direction crosswise to the first direction, and movable along the bed in the first direction; at least one clamping device fitted to each cross member to clamp at least one component part parallel to the first direction; a bridge crane movable along the bed in the first direction; and a pair of tool groups for machining the workpieces.
  • Document DE-A-19820409 discloses a method of detaching a glass stop from a door or window component and of provisory fixing the glass stop to the workpiece.
  • Document EP-A-1477286 discloses a method and a machine for machining door and window frame components, wherein the component is longitudinally profiled and transversally tenoned while moved at all times inside the same pocket.
  • Document FR-A-2475453 discloses a method of detaching a glass stop from a door or window component and of provisory fixing the glass stop to the workpiece.
  • Document EP-A-922547 discloses a machine for machining door and window frame components comprising a bed extending in a first direction; a bridge fixed to the bed;.and a pair of clamping movable along the bed.
  • It is an object of the present invention to provide a machine for working door and window component parts of wood or similar, designed to eliminate the above drawbacks, and which is cheap and easy to produce.
  • According to the present invention, there is provided a machine for working door and window component parts of wood or similar, as claimed in the accompanying Claims.
  • A non-limiting embodiment of the present invention will be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which :
    • Figure 1 shows a schematic plan view, with parts removed for clarity, of a preferred embodiment of the machine according to the present invention;
    • Figure 2 shows a schematic view in perspective of a detail in Figure 1;
    • Figure 3 shows a schematic of the operating principle of the Figure 2 detail;
    • Figure 4 shows a schematic view in perspective of a machine not being part of the invention.
  • Number 1 in Figure 1 indicates as a whole a machine for working door and window component parts 2 made of wood or similar, and which are initially elongated and substantially parallelepiped-shaped.
  • Machine 1 comprises an elongated, substantially U-shaped bed 3 extending in a horizontal direction 4 and having two lateral longitudinal guide members 5 parallel to direction 4.
  • Machine 1 also comprises a bridge crane 6 in turn comprising an upright 7, which is fitted in known manner to bed 3 to move linearly in direction 4 along bed 3, under the control of a known actuating device not shown, and is fitted on its free end with a cross member 8 extending over bed 3 in a horizontal direction 9 crosswise to direction 4, and bounded laterally in direction 4 by two opposite faces 10, 11.
  • Bridge crane 6 supports a known machining head 12 fitted to face 10, fitted in known manner to cross member 8 to move linearly along cross member 8 in direction 9, and comprising, in the example shown, at least two electric spindles 13, which have respective longitudinal axes 14 parallel to a vertical direction 15 perpendicular to directions 4 and 9, are fitted in known manner to head 12 to move in direction 15, and are each designed to receive and retain a respective tool or aggregate (not shown).
  • Machine 1 also comprises a store M for changing the tools and/or aggregates (not shown) fitted to electric spindles 13, and which is carried by bridge crane 6, and extends along an endless path through upright 7, and is mounted asymmetrically in direction 4 with respect to cross member 8.
  • Machine 1 also comprises a number of cross members 16 - hereinafter referred to as "work surfaces" - which extend between longitudinal members 5 in direction 9, and are fitted to longitudinal members 5 to move along longitudinal members 5 in direction 4, either manually or by means of respective known actuating devices not shown.
  • Work surfaces 16 support a number of vises 17 which are movable between a grip position and a release position to grip and release at least one component part 2, and the layout of which on work surfaces 16 substantially depends on the size of and the work to be carried out on component parts 2.
  • Machine 1 also comprises a feed device 18 for feeding component parts 2, and in turn comprising a bed 19 located alongside bed 3 in direction 4 and supporting a number of belt conveyors 20, which are aligned in direction 4, extend in respective vertical planes parallel to one another and to direction 9, have respective coplanar top conveying branches, and extend in direction 9 between a loading station 21 and an unloading station 22, where the unmachined component parts 2 are loaded and unloaded on and off device 18 respectively.
  • Component parts 2 are transferred between feed device 18 and vises 17 by a grip-and-carry unit 23 comprising an arm 24, which projects in direction 4 from face 11 of cross member 8, is bounded in direction 9 by two opposite faces 25, 26, and is fitted in known manner to cross member 8 to move linearly in direction 9 along cross member 8, under the control of a known actuating device not shown.
  • In the example shown, arm 24 supports two grip-and-carry devices 27, 28 defined by respective grippers fitted to face 25; in the example shown, device 27 is fixed to arm 24 in direction 4, and device 28 is fitted in known manner to arm 24 to move linearly in direction 4 along arm 24, under the control of a known actuating device not shown.
  • As shown in Figures 1 and 2, arm 24 also supports a machining unit 29 fitted to face 26 and comprising a supporting plate 30 fitted to arm 24 in fixed manner or movably in direction 4; and a slide 31 which is fitted movably to plate 30, and is connected by a screw-nut screw coupling to a screw 32 rotated by an electric motor 33 to move slide 31 linearly in direction 15.
  • Slide 31 supports an electric motor 34 which, with the interposition of a belt drive 35, rotates two shafts 36 connected to slide 31 to rotate about respective longitudinal axes 37 parallel to direction 9, and fitted respectively with a notcher 38 and a blade cutter 39 arranged successively in direction 4.
  • In actual use, component parts 2 are loaded successively onto device 18 - manually or by means of a known loader not shown - at loading station 21, and are fed successively in steps to unloading station 22.
  • Once component parts 2 are loaded onto feed device 18, the component part 2 at station 22 is transferred by grip-and-carry unit 23 to vises 17, is clamped by vises 17 in a direction parallel to direction 4, and is shaped longitudinally by machining head 12 to form a cavity 40 (Figure 3a) which is open on the side facing a face 2a of component part 2, is open longitudinally in direction 4, is bounded in direction 15 by two ribs 41, 42 parallel to each other and to direction 4, and is designed to receive and house, in use, a panel (not shown) of the relative door or window (not shown).
  • At this point, rib 41 is detached from component 2 by notcher 38 and blade cutter 39 to form a bead 43 (Figures 3b and 3c) by which, in use, to secure the panel (not shown) of the door or window (not shown) to rib 42, and which is fastened to component part 2 by a number of fasteners 44 inserted between bead 43 and component part 2 by a known inserting device 45 fitted to slide 31, on the opposite side of blade cutter 39 to notcher 38 (Figure 3d).
  • Figure 4 relates to a machine, which is not part of the invention, and differs from the embodiment shown in the other drawings solely by feed device 18 and grip-and-carry unit 23 being eliminated, and machining unit 29 being mounted directly on face 11 of cross member 8 with the interposition of a slide 46 fitted to cross member 8 to move linearly along cross member 8 in direction 9.
  • Machine 1 has several advantages, mainly due to bead 43 remaining connected to the respective original component part 2, and not having to be removed by the operator when detached from component part 2 by notcher 38 and blade cutter 39.
