The slotted table ensures that the workpiece is completely supported and "FlashNest", the Format-4 Nesting software, will calculate the maximum number of shapes possible per panel and minimise the amount of scrap material produced.
Linear guides Head-guided Y and Z axes with enclosed bearing: recirculating ball bushings running on hardened and ground linear guides; the Y and Z axes are positioned using a ground recirculating ball screw.
X-axis outrigger guide via the gear rack drive
The beveled tooth profile guarantees the utmost precision. The speed reduction mechanism ensures maximum positioning accuracy. Enclosed bearing: recirculating ball bushings running on hardened and ground linear guides.
Automatic centralised lubrication
A pneumatic time-cycled control delivers the lubricant to the lubrication points of the X, Y and Z axis guides. The lubrication cycle is pre-set via the axis control.

2 working areas
"Pendulum configuration" (Standard): whilst the work program is being machined on the left-hand side work bed, the next workpiece to be machined can be placed onto the right-hand side work bed in preparation for the next work process
Laser for suction pad positioning ensures precise positioning especially required when processing detailed or complicated shapes
4 cylinder stops in the front working area and one cylinder stop on the left and on the right of the working area.
The Drilling Head
14 vertical drill spindles, 32 mm shaft: 9 in the X- and 5 in the Y-axis, always individually retrievable
6 horizontal drill spindles, 32 mm shaft: 4 in the X- and 2 in the Y-axis, always individually retrievable
Integrated slot cutter in the X-axis
Inverter driven motor up to 6,000 rpm
The main spindle With a power capacity of 9 to 12 kW with up to 24,000 rpm and inverter controlled, the moulder motor is more than capable to tackle any task. The moulder motor is fixed directly on to the carrier unit in the Z-axis. The highly precise vertical guiding of the moulder motor is guaranteed by two vertical guide tracks. The HSK F63 tooll clamping takes place automatically. The tension of the tool is controlled by sensors and the operation safety confirmed. The tooling housing is cleaned pneumatically.
A C-axis can be inserted onto every Format-4 CNC machine as an interpolating (360°) fourth axis (option).
The Horizontal Spindle Motor With a motor strength of 4.5 kW and 18,000 rpm the horizontal spindle motor is controlled by an inverter. Through the use of a variety of tooling for example a rebate or casing tool the processing opportunities are almost limitless, providing massive shape variety.
8x linear tool changer mounted to the outrigger A linear tool changer, with up to 8 different tool positions, mounted to the outrigger ensures massive machining diversity.
18-Position Rotary Tool Changer mounted to the outrigger Optional: The rotating changer with 18 tool positions is mounted at the back of the outrigger and moves with the outrigger along the X-axis. Due to the 18-position rotating tool changer, tooling times are kept to the bare minimum making the Format-4 machining centre even more efficient!
Pick-Up Tool Changer Standard: Pick-up tool and unit position at the rear on the outrigger
3D simulator The 3D simulator acts as a graphical presentation of the machine with all components, tooling and workpieces. It will display all working processes and tool changes in real time.
All of the vacuum pods positioned on the CNC will be shown including any possible collisions.
Felder Group Pty Ltd | Industrial Woodworking Machines
Tradition – Innovation – Perfection: A risk-free decision
Woodworking machines from the FELDER-GROUP are the result of the 50 years experience in machine construction and a desire to improve even further.
Machine construction and metal processing have been tradition in the Felder family for generations.Our woodworking machines are 100% developed and produced at the Felder Group factories in Hall in Tyrol. The areas of research and development, production techniques and assembly, marketing, advertising, sales and service, as well as apprentice training and schooling are traditionally the most important pillars of our international enterprise.
