Tipo B plate punching and plasma cutting
Steel plate processing CNC machines carry out automated, precision drilling, punching, cutting and milling of steel plates – fabricating finished plates for a whole range of applications. The latest plate processing machines combine the ability to create holes by punching and drilling plates (up to 125mm thick) in a single machine.
- The Ficep drill spindle design features a ball screw feed that is consistent with today's machining center designs.
- This design permits the tool to advance through the material at a uniformfeed rate that is coordinated and maintained by the CNC control.
- Eliminates the tendency for the drill bit to rapidly accelerate and actually punch through the material upon breakthrough.
- This is the same system that is used in all CNC machining centers today to achieve maximum metal removal and to be able to fully utilise today's high performance insert tooling to its maximum efficiency.
- The spindle speed range of the Ficep drilling spindle is also designed to accommodate the RPM (up to 3,000 RPM) requirement of today's high performance insert tools.
- The entire drill head and spindle are advanced to the material as a single unit rather than just extending the spindle while the gearbox remains stationary to eliminate spindle wobble.
- Internal and external coolant selected by program command.
- Full spindle speed range available for all tools; maximum hole size of up to 100mm.
- Punching is always located directly in the middle of the hydraulic punching ram to eliminate any sideloading positions.
