The mainframe weldment is fabricated from ¾” thick steel plate. The base has an integral leveling system that also permits permanent installation.
PNEUMATIC HOLD-DOWN ASSEMBLY:
The pneumatic hold-down assembly opens the mouth of the machine to 5 ½ inches for changing tooling through the front. Pneumatic clamping assemblies, with non-marring urethane pads, are mounted to the hold-down assembly to secure the parts during cutting and can be adjusted to multiple locations over the cutting surface.
The router station has three servo controlled axis (X, Y, and Z) that are coordinated by the machine controller to achieve complex CNC motion. This station is equipped with a collet style router spindle for cutting:
EDGE GUIDE SYSTEM:
The system consists of a precision edge guide attached to a linear guide plate equipped with a position encoder. It is capable of locating the substrate in the machine using the inside or outside edge.
CONTROL AND COMPONENT PANELS:
The operator interface consists of a 10 inch (254 mm) colored touch screen. For simplicity, the entire calibration, setup, and monitoring of the machine are accomplished using only five different touch screen displays. The touch screen is mounted on a swing arm and can be accessed from three sides of the machine. Lighted push button switches control the clamping and shaping operations. Emergency stop push-button controls are located at the front (operation side) of the machine. For durability and reliability the function and logic of the machine is PLC controlled. Control and component panels conform to ANSI/NFPA 70 and NFPA 79 electrical standards. Machine is pre-wired for installation in customer’s factory.
The machine conforms to ANSI/NFPA 70 and NFPA 79 electrical standards and can be made to conform to CE standards.
The entire inside of the machine is part of the dust collection system. Because the entire frame is sealed off to resist air flow, all incoming air is drawn though the work area to keep wood chips from collecting on the work surface. Through the use of angled surfaces all dust collects at the bottom of the machine. Automatic air jets intermittently push the dust into the vacuum line.
