Abstract (en)

The device has an assembly station with a folding device by means of which the two pairs of opposite edges of each plate can be folded respectively with the edges of the plates above and below it. The prefabricated plates are conveyed to the assembly station from the pick-up stations where they are stacked, the plates in each stack being oriented at 90 degrees to one another ready for assembly.

Abstract (de)

Eine Vorrichtung zur Herstellung von Plattenwärmetauschern aus vorgefertigten Wärmetauscherplatten (1) hat eine Montagestation (6), an der eine Falzeinrichtung angeordnet ist, mittels der jede Wärmetauscherplatte (1) an zwei einander gegenüberliegenden Rändern mit den entsprechenden Rändern der unter ihr angeordneten Wärmetauscherplatte (1) und an den beiden anderen einander gegenüberliegenden Rändern mit den entsprechenden Rändern der über ihr angeordneten Wärmetauscherplatte (1) verfalzbar ist, und eine Transporteinrichtung (11), mittels der die vorgefertigten Wärmetauscherplatten (1) der Montagestation (6) zuführbar sind. Um bei der Herstellung des Plattenwärmetauschers aus vorgefertigten Wärmetauscherplatten (1) eine Drehung der Wärmetauscherplatten (1) zu vermeiden, hat die Vorrichtung zwei Aufnahmestationen (7, 8), die an einander gegenüberliegenden Seiten der Montagestation (6) angeordnet sind, in denen die quadratischen und einander gleichen vorgefertigten Wärmetauscherplatten (1) um 90 Grad zueinander verdreht stapelbar sind und aus denen die Wärmetauscherplatten (1) mittels der Transporteinrichtung (11) einzeln entnehmbar sind. <IMAGE>
