Extra Large Milling Machines
The machine shown to the left has a usable capacity of 3000mm x 1000mm x 10mm deep. Overall sizes are 4400mm x 1900mm x 350 and the complete unit weighs 680kg.
Stock removal rate is 2000mm/min x 20mm wide x 0.5mm deep with a 40mm carbide tipped cutter rotating at 15,000RPM.
All of our machines can have integrated or remote control panels. The example to the right shows a typical remote panel with a Siemens PLC and colour HMI touch panel with physical 'soft keys'.
A typical screen detail is shown above for absolute control of all machining dimensions.
All operator adjustable controls are automatically stored in non-volatile memory.
The above image displays a typical representation of one of our extra large milling machines integrated into a complete project - our machine is highlighted within a red frame.
The milling machine is moved into position automatically with PLC Servo Control.
