Heat Exchanger Plates
Short cycle times and effective utilization of materials
Our production lines are built with standardized modules that provide a high level of reliability, and which comprise all production steps from the roll feeder to stacked package. The process results in shorter cycle times and effective utilization of materials. It is particularly suited to forming plates with complex patterns, which require a great deal of repeat accuracy during production.
We have developed and delivered production equipment for heat exchanger plates for heat pumps and district heating assemblies since the 1980s. Several of the world’s leading manufacturers of heat exchangers for heating and cooling of homes and office premises are among our customers.
AP&T also develops press tools for manufacturing heat exchanger plates. The tools are intended for stainless steel sheet metal, with or without copper foil, and can handle material thicknesses from 0.25 mm.
From blank to finished plate
- The line is fed with cut blanks or from coils.
- An intelligent stacker stacks the parts, turning every other plate, and delivers the stacked heat exchanger plate package at the end of the line.
- AP&T’s embossing presses with press force from 3000 kN to 120000 kN provide a high level of pattern quality.
- The line is equipped with double sided decoilers so that downtime during roll feeder changes can be eliminated and maximum availability can be ensured.
