MEDIA HANDLING

MADE EASY

/// TIM: AN EASY AND CONFIGURABLE SOLUTION

The Tornado Integration Module (TIM) offers you an easy and

confi gurable integration of the BDT Tornado Technology into

your products or solutions.

TIM has a modular design and consists of the Tornado Drive

Module (TDM), the Tornado Slave Module (TSM), the Tornado

Sideblower (TS), optional open interfaces, a cable set as well

as a higher-level control unit. With these components you can

handle different substrates such as paper, carton, plastic or

foil with different weights. According to your requirements

you can set up or expand TIM modularly. The Tornado Drive

Module contains an integrated motor for belt drive and appropriate

fi xtures for the assembly of the modules into your

application.

Additionally and for a fast and easy integration of TIM you get

a control unit that constitutes an interface to your computer.

TIM also contains a fl exible software application that will enable

you to connect the Tornado Modules with your existing

system and adjust the corresponding parameters.

Technical Consulting for a perfect fi tting solution:

For the application specifi c and mechanical implementation

of the TIM solution into your environment we are pleased to

help you with a comprehensive and competent technical consulting.

If required our engineering experts will support you

at anytime!

/// HOW TORNADO WORKS

The BDT Tornado Module, which is the basis

of TIM, consists of a motor and an impeller

that creates a whirlwind by rotating very

fast. This whirlwind leads to a low pressure

zone or suction force and therefore lifts up

different substrates and weights.

By the combination of suction force and

transport belts, we at BDT have developed a

new module that can be used for any kind of

media handling, like for example the feeding

of paper. Beside the suction force, created by

the impeller, the integrated transport belts

ensure the transport of media, for example

paper into the printing press.

By combining the Tornado Modules with

each other, different applications can be

developed. Different formats and various

weights can be handled thanks to the modular

use of Tornado.

In addition to the Tornado Basis Module,

the Tornado Sideblower is used to separate

media before feeding them. The sideblower

blows a shaped airfl ow into the stack of media

and separates the media. As an example

the sideblower will be used when feeding

paper into the printing press to avoid double

picks.

software which BDT will provide.

Tornado Drive Module (TDM)

The Tornado Drive Module is the primary

Tornado unit with integrated motor and

belt drive. For your personal TIM package

and your application you will need at least

one Tornado Drive Module.

INTERFACE

Controller

Self-contained, custom built PLC/IPC

control unit providing power and control

over all TIM components. Fully confi gurable

to your specifi c application.

Tornado Slave Module (TSM)

The Tornado Slave Module is the secondary

Tornado unit - with suction power, but

without motor and belt drive. One Tornado

Module can be combined with up to four Slave

Modules depending on the application. Some

applications don‘t need Slave Modules.

Tornado Sideblower Module (TS)

The Tornado Sideblower Module is an air cushion generator or stack separator with automatic top-of-stack

tracking mechanism. As an example the Sideblower Module can be used for feeders when feeding paper into

the printing press to avoid double picks.

Open Interfaces

For specifi c requirements, like extra i/o

interfaces or more motors, our experts can

make an offer for customized development

to suit your application needs.

Cables

The TIM package for your individual application

includes a full set of connection cables linking

the modules with the controller.
