ShapeMill NCF 16002000

cnc machines
Shapemill NCF 1600 and NCF 2000 are machines specially engineered for workshops producing pieces made from natural and composite stone, such as tanks, columns, bas-reliefs, capitals, banisters, sculptures, and particularly suited for restoration works.

Shapemill NCF is a CNC milling center designed for contouring, cutting, and turning with five interpolated axes. It comes with a fixed worktable offering users the possibility of multiple and complex machining operations which would otherwise require several machines:
- Shaping of blocks or billets utilizing a saw blade to obtain large size workpieces with complex shapes.

- Shaping and creating recesses utilizing milling tools.

- Contouring by utilizing shaped tools.

- Cutting slabs and billets into workpieces by utilizing a saw blade.

- Turning of columns with shaped profiles or the machining of columns to create a twisted effect all along the surface.


cnc machines
- “Rapid” displacements of up to 40 meters per minute.

- Giant worktable sizing up to 4.000 x 3.500 mm.

- Powerful high frequency spindle of 39.6 kW.

- Maximum diameter of the cutting saw blade: 1.000 mm.

- C-axis rotation: ±200°

- A-axis rotation: from 0° to +115°

- X-axis travel: 4.000 mm

- Y-axis travel: 2.800/5.500 mm

- Z-axis travel: 1.600/2.000 mm

- Possibility of using various saw blades, shaped tools, drills, millers, etc.

- Automatic tool store with 27 positions + an optional 2 positions for the saw blade.

- Steel worktable secured to the ground with an aluminum top with recesses for mounting fixtures to secure the work piece in place.

- Beam with “gantry” movement along the shoulders, X-axis, on ground guides and roller sliding block assemblies that drive assembly consists of a pinion-and-rack system with rack precision to the hundredths, with 6 DIN 3961 Alpha quality grade, and precision reduction gears with Alpha backlash adjustment system. The motorization is by Siemens digital brushless type motors.

- Spindle carriage manufactured from iron casting and moving on roller sliding block assemblies, Y-axis. The drive assembly consists of precision pinion-an-rack system powered by a digital brushless type motor. The spindle steel cylinder, Z-axis, is positioned vertically on the inside of the carriage and is moved by a ball bearing screw/preloaded lead nuts/digital brushless type motor system. Provided with a pneumatic balancing system.

- Bi-rotary head for interpolated 5-axis machining.  The head has a symmetrical structure and consists of two main structural elements, the first C-axis is fitted with a Schleifring slip ring system for ± 200° rotation around its own vertical axis and the second element, A-axis rotating from 0° to +115° and housing the high-frequency spindle. Rotation transmission are provided by brushless-type motors.

- 6-pole 39.6 kW high frequency spindle cooled by a closed circuit cooling system which has a rotational speed of 7.000 rpm and a steep torque curve to supply the maximum power even when rotating slowly (e.g. with a 1.000mm ø saw blade at 1.000 rpm, the maximum power is supplied).

- The high-frequency spindle is fitted with an HSK-A100 (HSK-B100 NCF2000) conical coupling for the milling tools and saw blade and provided with an internal and external tool cooling system.

- Carousel tool magazine with 27 cells.

- Frontal protection barrier consisting of a series of sliding doors with a manual opening.  The doors are made from the structure and are proved with wide inspection ports. The rear part of the milling center is closed by a set of steel plate panels.

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

- Shapemill Teleservice. An internet connection is required in order to ensure an effective technical support in case of need.

- 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 that is wired to the main control console. Duplicates the major controls such as axes management + hand-wheel, emergency shutdown, etc. This portable mini console allows the operator to be close to the piece to be machined, controlling directly some delicate machining operations.

- Electronics and utilities are housed in two cabinets with IP54 grade of protection and cooled by an air conditioning unit specifically designed for a maximum external temperature of +45°C.

- Optional store for saw blade with a maximum diameter of 600 mm, secured to the side shoulders – for a maximum of two positions.

- Optional lathe for producing columns and twisted effect details with workable sizes: ø 1.080/1.600 x 3.200 mm.
