Project Description

Pandjiris® Universal and Longitudinal Planishers

Pandjiris® Planishers are designed to quickly finish weld joints, having reinforcement, which would otherwise require grinding or some other finishing process. The planisher offers a mechanical finishing process utilizing a pressurized roller system to compress the weld reinforcement of a metal fabrication. The typical part geometries suitable for planishing operations may include cylinders, squares, domes and other parts that are physically capable of being placed in the machine.

The planisher uses a set of fixed precision rolls placed above and below the weld joint and compressed together using an air-over-oil hydraulic system. The top roll is attached to a drive motor which moves the part as a constant and controlled rate. The lower drive roll is supported by a cantilevered support mandrel. As the weld joint passes between the fixed rolls, the preset force will compress the weld reinforcement flush with the base material. The drive rolls can be contoured to suit almost any application.

Pandjiris offers the following two styles of planishers as standard products along with a variety of custom models for specific applications*:

Planisher Models:

  • 6.5T-8-40-48 Longitudinal

  • 6.5T-8-40-48 Universal

  • 10T-9.25-40-48 Longitudinal

  • 10T-9.25-40-48 Universal

THE LONGITUDINAL PLANISHER:

The Longitudinal Planisher is designed to finish longitudinal seams only. The longitudinal planisher is also available in 2 different design configurations. The 1st configuration utilizes the standard upper driven roll and mandrel arrangement. The 2nd configuration utilizes a traveling gantry upper roll arrangement. The travel gantry is typically offered for extended length part applications.

THE UNIVERSAL PLANISHER:

The Universal Planisher is capable of both longitudinal and circumferential finishing of welds. The Universal Planisher has an exclusive roll support design which pivots the upper roll in a precise orientation to the lower roller. The pivot is fully supported and precision machined to allow 0 and 90 degree orientations.
