SLOTTING MACHINE: 500 3AC

3 NC controlled axes (Y – X – A)

LONGITUDINAL TRAVEL:
NC Controlled Axis Y

HORIZONTAL TRAVEL:
NC Controlled Axis X

TURNTABLE:
NC Controlled Axis A

Machine Details:

Automatic longitudinal and horizontal pre-programmed and reversible slot machining and automatic rotation of turntable for any required slot depth and diameter.

Tool lift obtained by alternating table movements.

Once the pre-programmed slot depth has been reached, in automatic the machine performs a number of finishing strokes and the ram stops in its top position and the workpiece table in automatic returns to machining start cycle position.

Electronic turntable with central through hole to floor with possibility of programming 1500 symmetrical and 999 asymmetrical divisions.

Possibility of machining specific trapezoidal, circular and linear slots.

The incorporated NC technology provides a user friendly operator/machine interface, the operator can call up data on the display utilizing the keypad, enter production data. The type of technology incorporated is easy and simple to use.

Machining programmes with zero workpiece position can be saved and stored and called up when required. It is possible to store up to 100 programmes.

This model can run in automatic two or more programmes in sequence.

The software offers the following standard applications:

  • slot repeat: this function is for repeating slot machining without having to proceed with machine setup.
  • incremental tool lift: with this function enabled the tool is completely raised out of the slot when the ram returns and returns to zero workpiece position.

If required, it is possible to add and incorporate specific software functions and applications:

  • slot bottom finishing: in the event the slot is widened the operator has the possibility of milling the bottom of the slot to finish.
  • slot side finishing: this function is for widening the slot by milling and finishing the sides.
  • decreasing tool feed: this function allows the operator to automatically modify tool feed (machining) using two specific values initial and final tool feed. This function is enabled by entering the two tool feed values.
  • air blow: ideal when machining slots in blind holes. At a defined number of ram strokes a solenoid valve is activated and air is blown onto the workpiece to remove swarf during machining. The operator also has the possibility of setting the function operating time.
  • chamfering: once having machined the slot it is possible with this function to chamfer slot edges to 45° in automatic.
  • tangential slots: this function allows the operator to machine in automatic two or more UNI 7515-76 tangential slots of any width.

20° tilting head (in both directions). Inverter controlled variable stepless slotting speed with potentiometer incorporated in the control panel. The machine incorporates an electro-pump for the tool cooling system and automatic pump for ram and trolley lubrication. Maintenance tools and machine instruction manual are provided.

Technical Specifications

Precision machining  and operational flexibility are features incorporated in our Slotting Machines 500 and 500A, and the result of years of technical expertise and experience in this market combined with valid suggestions on improvement from some of our most demanding customers.

Machine Structure

Manufactured from electric arc welded sheet metal of robust thickness, adequately ribbed and heat treated for internal stress relieving.

Head and Ram

G30 quality grade cast-iron. Ram guides are induction tempered and ground. The travelways on the head are coated with an anti-friction material (PTFE), ground and scraped.

The ram is driven by a self-braking asynchronous motor, reduction gear unit and crank assembly. Ram travel (stroke) is manually adjusted using the cam on the handwheel.

The head tilts 20°, both clockwise and anti-clockwise, and moves on a worm screw assembly which allows for precision positioning when machining conical slots.

Rectangular Table

Quality grade cast-iron with ground and scraped travelways coated with an anti-friction material (PTFE). Wide central hole to floor designed for machining long shafts.

Turntable

Quality grade cast-iron with wide central through hole designed for machining long shafts.

Travel guides on the table and support are coated with an anti-friction material (PTFE), ground and scraped. Table rotation is driven by a worm screw-sprocket assembly (the worm screw is steel quality 18 NCM 5 hardened and ground and the sprocket is bronze quality B14) which incorporates a micrometric backlash recovery system. Maintenance free support guide thanks to an automatic greasing system.

Computer controlled compressed-air driven rotation lock system during machining.

Axis

The table, for models 2AC and 3AC, moves on a ground and enclosed recirculating ball screw assembly.

Lubrication

A timer controlled pump lubrication system. When the oil level drops below the minimum level machining stops automatically and an alarm prompt is activated.

Cooling System

Closed circuit system driven by a centrifugal electro-pump and a pull-out and removable swarf collection tray is positioned below the table for easy access.

Safety Protections

Sheet metal and Plexiglas folding enclosure with front panel doors for easy access when the overhead crane positions the workpiece.

Microswitch safety feature, in conformity with safety directives in force, is fitted to the enclosure to prevent opening during machining.

Electrics

Each axis is driven by a brushless motor and servo-drive with NC control. The NC control system allows easy machine programming including machining complex workpieces. Electrics and wiring conform to the stringent safety directives and standards.
