Available Building Blocks
We are the world leader in catalyst production equipment. Our pride is based on specially designed systems that are used by more than 100 machines worldwide.
Kirschenhofer has developed 2 measuring machines to cover the requirements of substrates for cars and trucks.
The device measures the circumference of the substrate and determines if it complies with the specification.
The same measuring machines are used to measure the finished part to determine the gap bulk density (GBD).
Kirschenhofer supplies mat weighing stations with manual loading, automatic loading from packaging or loading from buffer.
The station is equipped with an automatic wrapping function. Automation of this process allows for faster and more accurate results.
The stuffing station is equipped with a force measuring system to ensure that the mat is not damaged during the insertion process.
The station also has the Kirschenhofer patented variable insert cone.
Kirschenhofer supplies tube processing stations for pre- and post-sizing. The number of processing steps is freely configurable by the customer.
Engraver stations are used to scribe,pin-stamp or laser identification information on the tube. It consists of one or two engravers, which are automatically loaded and unloaded with a high-speed handling system.
The station can be equipped with needle printers or laser engravers.
Kirschenhofer offers the automatic feeding of substrates from belts or directly from the packaging.
Tube feed is offered via surface storage, or directly from grid boxes. Mat feed directly from the packaging or from mat buffers.
Special Purpose Stations
Kirschenhofer developed a diverse range of stations for autonomous machines to determine product quality.
Non-contact tube thickness measurement, mats position control, pushing force measurement, substrate breakage detection, etc.
