9.1.3 Technical data for inert gas for PUR glue


To maintain the PUR glue it is necessary to use a nitrogen tank.

In this case it is necessary to obtain a device to input inert gas. The inert gas prevents the
adhesive in the bowl from reacting to humidity. It eliminates any air present in the bowl and
protects the adhesive, which might react in an undesirable manner and solidify too soon.

The device must have the following characteristics:


Inert gas composition Nitrogen (N2) 99.996 % vol
O2  5 vpm
H2O  5 vpm
HC  5 vpm
Ar  30 vpm
Inert gas bottle Pressure 200 bar

Suction system requirements


The suction system must be permanently connected to the machine, must work with it and must
continuously supply a minimum flow speed of 30m/sec.

Insufficient system performance may damage health.

Chips and dust may be raised when the pipes are extracted from the suction hoods.
Wear protective goggles.

It is recommended that a cut-out valve be fitted on the pipe connecting the suction system to the
machine, allowing the machine to be disconnected from the main system if necessary. The device
must be located within easy access and full view of the operator.

Flooring requirements
The flooring must be in concrete and must guarantee a resistance to compression of 300 kg/cm2.

Environmental requirements
Machining operations must take place in the following environmental conditions:
- Temperature: from 10 to 40 °C
- Maximum relative humidity: 90% (without condensation)
- Maximum altitude: 1000 m a.s.l. (unless otherwise agreed with customer)

A.5 Cleaning
Before packing the machine is subjected to protective treatment with antioxidant agents. When it is
unpacked these products must be removed using suitable degreasing agents, of a type that will
not damage the metal or plastic components in the machine.

It is particularly essential that the sliding parts and working units in general be cleaned with great
care. Be particularly careful not to allow any liquids into the motors.
After cleaning, dry treated parts carefully with a dry cloth: it is also recommended that a cloth lightly
dipped in neutral oil be passed over all steel parts.

The transparent polycarbonate surfaces in the guard cabins must be cleaned using a
soft cloth dipped in water only.

Under no circumstances must solvents of any type be used, as these products might
damage certain parts of the machine. Jets of compressed air might damage the
guides and ball bearings.

4. Remove the fixing elements. Each fixing element is marked with the following removable red
plate.

To carry out electrical connection of the machine proceed as follows:


1. Make sure that the main power switch is turned to the 0-off position.

2. Make sure that the machine's main switch is turned to the 0-off position and open the door.

3. Insert the three-phase power cable through the cable clamp below.

4. Connect the yellow and green earthing cable to the relevant


terminal PE.

Connection of the machine to the earth cable is


compulsory, and must be carried out before the live wires
are connected.

5. Connect the blue neutral wire to the terminal N.

6. Connect the three live wires to terminals L1, L2 and L3.

A. Transport and installation

To carry out pneumatic connection of the machine proceed as follows:

1. The machine must be connected to the pneumatic system by connecting the supply pipe to
the connector A on the regulator filter unit.

2. Pressurise the main air supply system of the company and open the cut-out valve. Press and
turn the knob B clockwise.

The cut-out valve must be fitted with a padlock. The key must be kept by specialised
personnel responsible for machine operation.

3. Adjust the pressure using knob C. The value must be 6 bar.

After electrical and pneumatic connection it is necessary to check that the live wires are connected
in the right order. To do this, check the direction in which the brushes turn.

If the machine is not fitted with a brush unit, check the direction of rotation by starting the
drive track by sending a short pulse.

Only start the drive track for a few seconds. The track should turn in the direction in
which the panel moves.

If it does not turn in the correct direction, it will be necessary to reverse the position of two out of
the three live wires.

To carry out connection to the suction system proceed as follows:

1. The machine must be connected to the suction system by connecting the relevant flexible
pipes to the manifolds on the machine.

B. Decommissioning - Demolition

B. Decommissioning - Demolition

This chapter provides information on dismantling and demolition of the machine.

B.1 Decommissioning and demolition


During the machine's life cycle it may be necessary to transfer it to another location. In this case,
proceed as follows.

1. The operations must be carried out by qualified personnel.

2. Turn the machine off, disconnect it from the electric supply line and discharge all the air from
the pneumatic system.
3. Remove and put away all the tools that are in the machine.

4. Clean the machine and protect the parts subject to corrosion using the appropriate products.

5. Fix all parts capable of moving by inertia or by gravity.

6. For transport and installation of the machine at the new site, use the methods and procedures
described in this manual.

The machine utilises lubricating oils and greases. What remains of them in some sections of the
machine cannot be recovered. To get rid of the remains, use approved, naturally degrading
products. Recyclable lubricants must instead be drained from the tanks and handed over to an
authorised used oil disposal body. Any batteries, accumulators, buffer batteries for circuit boards
and conditioners that may be found in the machine must also be disposed of in the appropriate
manner.

When the machine reaches the end of its technical working life, it must be totally decommissioned
in such a manner that it can no longer be used for the purposes for which it was designed and
built. It may, however, be possible to reuse some of the components and raw materials present If
any parts are used again it must be for purposes other than those for which the individual part and
the machine as a whole was originally designed and constructed.

The manufacturer will not be held responsible for any damage or injury that may derive from any
reuse of individual parts of the machine for functions or in situations other than those for which
there were originally designed. The manufacturer will not recognise, implicitly or explicitly, the
suitability of parts reutilised after the definitive deactivation of the machine for demolition
purposes.
