CNC milling machine with gantry design –
universal powerhouse with a rapid traverse of 80 m/min
HG-5-axis CNC gantry single milling machine/universal G-S-F/U
This CNC machine combines the machine concepts of solid model making machines with those of the CNC milling machines for plastics and composite materials from HG GRIMME SysTech. The CNC gantry milling machine G-S-F/U with a gantry design not only takes up much less space than solid model making milling machines, but its performance places it between the basic concepts of PSF/GSF and PSF-M/GSF-M. The CNC machine impresses with its simple set-up process and straightforward cleaning, which can be carried out very easily owing to the gantry design.
Efficient milling of plastics and composite materials
as well as in mould making and model making
The CNC machining centre is highly capable, so switching material does not present a challenge. The CNC machine is suitable both for reworking plastics and for model making and mould making. Milling modelling materials such as CFP, GFRP and Ureol as well as all plastics, composite materials and aluminium does not present a problem for our universal gantry milling machine. The CNC milling machine is equipped with a powerful Hiteco spindle with 15 kW in S6 for this purpose. In addition, the rapid traverse rate of the linear axes X/Y is 80 m/min and in Z is 60 m/min. This performance is achieved among other things with a rack and pinion drive in the Z axis.
Low-maintenance and particularly precise milling
The CNC milling machine is equipped with a low-maintenance 10x tool changer which travels along on the support of the Y axis. This allows tools to be changed quickly and effectively. The particular jig that is required for milling can simply be positioned on the table with master dowels. This allows the jig to be swapped even more easily in a shorter timespan. The combination of power, milling spindle and the stability of the overall concept delivers a particularly high level of precision in the milling process.
