Industries Served Furniture Boating Plywood Aerospace Automotive
  Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
  Ideal for all types of panel machining, both stacked & 1-up
CNC Control Fanuc 0i-MD (Pre-owned Fanuc 18M for tighter budgets)
Control Memory 512 kb, flash port & optional Ethernet
Servo Drives
  • High-efficiency digital closed-loop, 1M positions per motor revolution
  • 50% less power consumption: faster cycles, pump energy back into power line when machine decelerates
Display 10.4" color LCD
Homing Sequence Absolute encoders -- homing no longer required; saves time
Routing Spindle(s) XR-15 liquid chilled (collet or power drawbar), built & serviced by Accu-Router in Tennessee
Housing & Carriage 32,000# tensile-strength closed-grain Meehanite cast iron (rigid, dampens vibration)
Tool Change Automatic or quick change (15 secs)
Programmability Up to (4) main routing spindles with optional variable head spacing for maximum yield (manual digital or precision servo drive)
Bearings Duplex ceramic
Lubrication Internal micro-spay mist or grease
Drilling Fixed bearing preload can plunge up to 600 in/min, and/or optional HSD programmable electronic drill heads (5 spindles on 32mm centers)
Material Holddown Based on application: Roller Assist, Flow-Thru vacuum, traditional gasketed vacuum, or combination thereof
Ballscrew Technology High-speed precision ball screws, including "spin-the-nut" model on X axis (auto-lubricated)
Linear Motion / Rails THK or Bosch precision linear ways
Auto-Load / Unload
  • Optional material handling integrated to host Fanuc control
  • Machine-paced production increases operator safety & can double machine output
Perimeter Guarding Optional: ANSI-compliant, cyclone fencing & unitized safety mats interlocked to host Fanuc control
