ContourFive NC 700/1200

ContourFive NC 700/1200

Contourfive is a numerical control machining center with five interpolated axes for machining pieces made from marble, granite, sandstone, limestone, compound stone, and stone in general.

Thanks to its vertical travel of 700/1200 mm, Contourfive is the ideal machine for architectural and funerary art as well as for those processing which require a deep dishing out.  It offers the user the possibility of performing different and complex machining operations which would otherwise require several machines:

- Shaping by utilizing the saw blade to get large pieces with complex shape.

- Shaping and dishing out utilizing millers.

- Contouring by utilizing shaping tools.

- Sawing by utilizing the saw blade.

- With the optional lathe, the turning of columns with shaped profiles or machining of columns to create a twisted effect all along the surface.

- High speed 16 kW electro-spindle featuring a rotation speed of up to 14.500 rpm, it is provided with thermal stability and long-life grease lubrication of the bearings. The tool coolant flows inside the spindle.

- Bi-rotary head for interpolated 5-axis machining. The head has a symmetrical structure and consists of two main structural elements, the C-axis is fitted for ±200° rotation around its own vertical axis. The second element, the A-axis rotates from 0° to +115° and houses the high frequency spindle.  Rotation transmission are provided by brushless type motors.
- Iron casting spindle holding carriage running on roller slides, X-axis, and actuated by a precision pinion-and-rack system, which is motorized by a digital brushless motor. The spindle holding steel ram lead nut/digital brushless motor system. The position monitoring is performed by the motor encoder.

- Steel worktable secured to the ground, with an aluminum top with recesses for mounting fixtures to secure the work piece in place, with a vacuum plant and manifold.

- Beam with movement along the shoulders, Y-axis on ground guides is through a pinion-and-rack system and precision reducers with backlash adjustment, driven by digital brushless motor.

- Mobile 27 cell carousel tool store for tool holders to automatically change tools other than the saw blade.

- Frontal protection barrier consisting of a series of sliding doors with manual openings. The doors are made from the structure and are provided with wide inspection ports.

- Siemens Sinumerik 840D SL the latest digitally controlled computer numerical control system with PC architecture and a unit utilizing Windows as an operating system.  Comes with Windows user friendly interface and fully developed software for work program management.

- Control console mounted on a mobile pendant structure and equipped with a 15-inch touch screen color monitor, a joystick to easily move the motorized working axes movement and a USB port for data transfer.

- Portable mini console wired to the main control console to duplicate the major controls; axes management + handwheel, emergency shutdown, etc. This portable mini console allows the operator to be close to the piece to be machined, allowing the control of delicate machining operations.

- Electrics and utilities are housed in two cabinets with IP54 grade of protection and cooled by an air conditioning unit specially designed for a maximum external temperature of +45°C.
- Optional store for saw blade with a maximum diameter of 500 mm and secured to the side shoulders.

- Optional lathe for producing columns and twisted effect details with workable sizes: ø 960 x 3.200 mm.
