MADE EASY

/// TIM - A PLUG‘N‘PLAY INTEGRATION

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

plug‘n‘play like 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 Sideblower (TS), additional open

interfaces, 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.

Further on 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.

/// 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 an under 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 avoids that media stick together.

As an example the sideblower will be used

when feeding paper into the printing press

to avoid double picks.
