HIGH-FLOW TABLE/WORK SURFACE
The work surface is a precision-machined phenolic high flow vacuum table mounted to a cast iron steel plate. The surface is machined in a grid pattern to present a modular work area for easy set-up. The modular design also facilitates quick changeover for a variety of material sizes.
Four (4) 1-inch diameter machined steel part location pins are included as a standard feature with every machine. The pins are located in a fixed position at 4”, 4”, 20” and 70”. Each pin has a sensor to ensure the pins are down when the machine is in operation.
AUTOMATIC TOOL CHANGER
Each machine is supplied with a tool change system, either stationary "wine rack" or servo motor-controlled rotary type.
- HSK 63F style tool holders
- Aluminum grippers
- (4) four tool holders are included
- (4) four collets are included
- 4” diameter tool touch-off probe accepts larger cutters such as spoil board fly cutters
VACUUM PUMP SYSTEM
Machines are supplied with at least one high flow vacuum pump. The pumps are designed for fast draw-down to an ultimate vacuum of 230CFM for fast cycle times and excellent hold down. All fittings and hoses necessary for the connection of the pump to the machine manifold are supplied as part of the vacuum system package.
All positioning bearings, ball screws and racks are serviced by an automatic lubrication system, activated directly by the machine control. This ensures the rack and pinion, ball screw and linear guideways are being lubricated to the manufacturer’s specifications.
As a standard safety feature, the safety arm is designed to prevent the operator from entering the machine work zone during machine operation. The safety arms utilize a photo eye that is designed to put the machine into a feed hold if an obstacle is encountered during machine operation.
