TBA cutting lines for transformer core laminations

GEORG precisioncut TBA

Cutting lines and stacking systems

The range of our worldwide leading GEORG TBA cutting lines is available for high level and medium requirements for power and distribution transformers. According to application range and needs various types are available and can tailored to the individual customer requirements.

The cutting lines can be completed by classic or highly automized stacking systems. E.g. with our GEORG robotline we offer an integrated fully automatic cutting and stacking solution for distribution transformers without any manual stacking. Our stacking product GEORG autostack represents a highly automized unmanned stacking solution offline.

Fully automized cutting and stacking systems

GEORG robotline

Machines of GEORG’s “precisioncut robotline” series cut transformer sheets and stack laminated cores by means of a robot in a fully automatic process. The machines can produce complete closed and open cores, with or without a top yoke.

Available in different power ratings, the machine series covers the full range of distribution transformers from 100 kVA to 15 MVA and up to 2,000 mm center length.

Advantages of GEORG’s “precisioncut robotline”

  • The line can run full speed 24/7
  • Low maintenance, high availability
  • 2 robots for high output
  • Low burr, low loss quality laminations
  • Highest lamination length accuracy
  • Careful processing of valuable strip material
  • 100 % support through our Life Cycle Quality Management

“With the same high stacking quality for which the TBA400 robotline is known  worldwide, the TBA300 robotline offers an economic alternative for cutting and stacking of smaller laminations. As both processes are combined in one and the same line the robot lines achieve short processing times and accordingly a high output. On top the robot doesn't know a daily condition, meaning it constantly performs every day with the same high precision.”

Alexander Tschoeltsch, GEORG transformer division

Fully automized stacking system

Besides the integrated fully automized cutting and stacking series GEORG robotline, also the unmaned stacking as offline solution is possible.
