The production of collectors in the meander system has proven itself at TiSUN for many years. Whereas formerly the absorber tubes were bent first, the absorber plates were trimmed, and then the two components were welded together, this is done simultaneously.
To this end, “PULSSPEED BENDER” cuts the raw material in the desired lengths and then processes it directly. In a next step, the tubing is fused with the plates. The collecting pipes are then fed automatically, welded and soldered with the meander pipes.
Thanks to its flexible bending arm and laser head, the innovative high-tech machine is extremely flexible to use. The three-dimensional arm allows rotations of up to 274 °, so that the laser head can be positioned at the optimum injection angle to the machining surface. The absorber production line is compatible both for the starting material copper and for aluminum and produces absorber plates for all collector designs. An integrated quality inspection controls and monitors the entire product before it is processed in the collector.
