At the core of Trinity's product design capability is
a AP-100 software system that provides a sophisticated
electronic link between customers’ designers and
the high-speed punch cells at Trinity.
Trinity's AP100 software for Windows is an advanced CAD/CAM
system for sheet metal fabrication. AP100 utilizes the
latest Microsoft Windows 32-bit multi-tasking operating
system for fast, trouble-free operation. The program is
designed for operator ease of use and is capable of generating
code for virtually all punching and cutting.
AP 100 software includes an integrated 2D/3D CAD-CAM solution.Below
is a list of few features of the software-
- Auto/Manual Tool/Cutting assign and sequencing
- Can program Punch, Laser and Comb machines
- Single part, Nested or Multi-part sheet layouts
- Over-travel and Clamp Dead Zone error messages
- Multiple Turret configurations can be saved
- Program simulation & Error checking
- Automatic or Manual repositioning
- Import/Export DXF, IGES or DWG files
- Automatically dodge clamps with sequence
- Tool path optimisation
- Visual numbering of Cam sequence
- Bend Deduction Management
New and revised part data is accurately and quickly
transferred into latest machine code programs by Trinity's
production engineers, with the machine code being generated
from a file formats DFX.
2D or 3D data supplied by customers is reverse engineered
to create part blank developments. These are then nested
and tooled to produce machine code ready for production.
Turret punching is the first step
in the fabrication process. Trinity has invested significantly
in world-class CNC punch technology from Amada, a leading
provider of computer controlled machine tools for flexible
sheetmetal and materials processing. This technology is
at the core of Trinity's high-speed production facility
with machine tools for punching.Set up is extremely fast
through the use of quick change tooling, and rapid first
off inspection. As a result, even small batch production
is cost-effective. The speed and accuracy of our turret
presse helps us to maintain a competitive edge on part
cost and consistent quality. The ability to run unattended
and the large capacity provided by our six fabricators
allow us to meet our customers ever increasing demands.
A comprehensive, on-site training program guarantees the
exceptional skill level of Trinity's engineers.
Our expert forming and bending department is equipped
with the latest technology in CNC bending provided by
Amada, Japan. We utilize Japanese style press brake
tooling for greater accuracy, longer tool life, flexibility
and faster set-up time.Trinity utilizes Amada’s
Bendcad software to program our brakes offline to further
decrease setup time and minimize lead-time. A wide range
of standard tooling is available to keep costs to a
- Quick set up
- Wide range of tooling available
- High productivity
- High accuracy and repeatability
- Spot welding
- MIG and TIG welding (coded)
- Gas welding
- Stud welding
Substantial investment in surface finishing technology
is planned at Trinity to offer a complete finishing service–
from 3 stage iron phosphate pre-treatment to specialist
liquid/ powder paint finishes. Currently, this activity
is out-sourced to reputed sub-contractors and strict vigil
is exercised on not only the quality of products but also
on compliance of statutory regulations with regards to
Powder coating, which is outsorced currently, is provided
in highly economical and durable finishes, with fast and
efficient colour changes, made possible by electrostatic
powder coat line with 3 stage iron phosphate pre-treatment,
state-of-the-art booths and gas convection ovens.
Trinity's electro-mechanical assembly services provide
a cost-effective flow of subassemblies and kits onto customers’
electronic assembly lines and direct into the field.
Flexible assembly cells designed for quick configuration
are set up for individual product batches, ensuring that
high levels of product quality and productivity are achieved.
Cells are equiped with high speed tools.
