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.
Secure workpiece support – precise results
A variety of vacuum pad shapes guarantee secure clamping of every conceivable workpiece form and shape.
Quick positioning of the consoles and vacuum pods
The hose-free vacuum system is simple and quick to adapt to the workpiece size and shape. A large number of different suction pad shapes and sizes ensure that any type of workpiece shape can be attached. Laser or LED displays on the control panels facilitate the task of quickly adjusting to the “collision-free” position as calculated by the software. Feeding rails ensure easy loading and unloading of large, heavy or awkward workpieces. An important advantage for you as a one man workshop in operating the profit H20, H22 and H24 machining centres!
Workpiece cylinder stops at "Standard zero point"
Solid steel stop cylinders ensure exact workpiece positioning. On the X-axis you will find the cylinder stops on every panel support. On the Y-axis the cylinder stops position can be adjusted, depending on workpiece size.
Workpiece cylinder stops at "Double zero point" (second fence row)
Additional to the workpiece cylinder stops for the "standard-zero point" is the second fence row found in the front part on every work bed, particularly useful for processing large workpieces. (Available as an option with the H20)
Workpiece feeding rails
Easy loading and removal of large, heavy or awkward work-pieces is guaranteed through the feeding rails, an important feature, allowing the "one man shop" to benefit from the "profit 2" and "profit 3".
Workpiece stops for veneered panels
In addition to the standard workpiece cylinder stops, there are additional stops specifically developed to machine veneered panels with projecting veneer or laminate.
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).
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.
Pick-Up Tool Changer
Optional: 2x Pick-up tool and unit positioned to the left, inside the machine frame
Pick-Up Tool Changer
Standard: Pick-up tool and unit position at the rear on the outrigger
Units which require a compressed air supply, may be inserted with the C-axis (i.e. floating head, lock recess trimming head with extraction).
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.
