Products and services

Lifting, positioning, drilling, cutting, punching

Alfra tools facilitate a large variety of applications in shipbuilding/design – such as the Rotabest SP core drilling machines with patented permanent magnet for horizontal drilling. Furthermore at the German pavilion (N2B7A-04): versatile Alfra magnets for lifting different types of loads, adjustment or levelling of metal sheets and more. The patented technology allows e.g. the welding of metal sheets in a distance of only 15 mm from magnet.

The TML lifting magnets are, depending on the model, adhesive on materials from a thickness of 1 mm. Also in the range: Magnets for lifting or positioning of round steel and magnets for angle fixing.

Hydraulic manual punchers and hole punchers ensure precise knock-outs in cabinets for marine electronics. Burr-free cut edges after crosscutting cable ducts or mounting rails are one of the advantages of the PSG profile rail cutting devices and the VKS 125 cable duct cutting device.

News & Innovations

Core drilling with a permanent magnet
Core drilling in all positions – backed by the name Alfra. The German manufacturer is going to present i.a the core drilling machines RB 35 SP and RB 50 SP at the Marintec in Shanghai (N2B7A-04). Unique: the patented permanent magnet with preload-capacity is developing large adhesive forces, even with small mass application. Due to the concept for magnet alignment, the 2 machines can be used on thin-walled materials from a thickness of 3 mm. They are suitable for the work on thin lining sheets, such as are usual in facade-, container- and ship construction – no matter if the machine is in an overhead position or the power supply is being interrupted. Machines fitted with an electromagnet unfold their full adhesive forces only from a thickness of 6 to 8 mm. The Rotabest-models with a permanent magnet can be used for wholes with a diameter from 35 up to 80 mm. A version with right/left rotation enables threading by means of an optional tapping device.

Magnetic engineering „Made in Germany“
Lifting, positioning, levelling – the lightweight permanent magnetic system „TMC”, made by Alfra, ensures a smooth workflow on shipyards. Users in China are now set to benefit from the patented technology, too. That’s why the Alfra GmbH is going to present 4 magnetic solutions for applications from aligning metal sheets to the clamping of heavy loads in the German Pavillion at the Marintec in Shanghai. They are able to adhere to very thin material, starting from 1mm. The max. tearing force for lifting magnets is determined on the basis of a triple safety factor. Unique: due to the special unfolding of the magnetic field, welding is possible with a distance up to 15 mm. Furthermore at the Alfra-booth (N2B7A-04): the lifting magnets of the TML-family. Metalworkers use the helpers for „Thin Material Lifting“ – depending on the model on materials from 1 mm. The max. load-bearing capacity has a range from 400 kg (round steel) to 1000kg (flat steel).

Control cabinet Engineering 2.0
When it comes to the converging of cables, or moduls have to be placed precisely, specialists in marine electronics have to work by the millimeter and free of burrs. The solution: Tools for control cabinet engineering, Made in Germany. Alfra is going to present a variety of its product range at the Marintec in Shanghai (N2B7A-04) – as an alternative to sawing, without noise, chips and sharp edges. Profile rail cutting devices of the Alfra-PSG-series allow the user to cut all common rails to length – effortlessly and without waste. The cable duct cutting device VKS 125 is convincing with 90° angle-precise cutting, too, even in the case of non-halogen cable ducts.

At the booth as well: hole punchers for round and square knockouts, matching with a ball bearing screw or with the Alfra hydraulic manual punchers – for the use in tight angles the COMPACT-FLEX, equipped with an high-pressure hose, is ideal. New: Premiere of the battery-operated ACCU COMPACT.
