Knauf Insulation X-Ray Crimping Machine

Wright Engineering tendered and successfully won the contract to design a bespoke x – ray crimping machine.  Knauf manufacture insulation board, the type that you would generally find in your loft.  The machine is basically a combination of conveyors, some mounted on jacks used to press the insulation board to the required width before passing through a x-ray machine which monitors the thickness of the board before it enters the oven for curing.

The design of the machine was started by two others before being passed onto Joe McEwan who finished the design, co-project managed the project and assisted the fabrication and assembly teams where possible.

The design of the machine proved to a very grueling task mainly because of tight working conditions making it very difficult to tension the conveyors and fit the jacking system which was used to move the conveyors up and down.  The machine also needed to be adaptable to the ovens heat and also resistant to heat near the entrance of the oven.

The original proposal drawing was done using AutoCAD and the design was finished using Tekla Structures software.  The advantage of using Tekla allowed the machine to be 3D modeled for easy interpretation and the software automatically created cutting lists and CNC files for over 200 plates, which increased productivity during manufacture.
