FLYMILL - INTERPOLATED 5-AXIS CNC VERTICAL MACHINING CENTRE DESIGNED FOR MILLING MEDIUM, LARGE AND VERY LARGE WORKPIECES ACROSS VARIOUS MATERIALS AS STEEL, ALUMINIUM, COMPOSITES AND RESIN
The 5-axis FLYMILL range of machining centres offers four models – FLYMILL 1000, 1300, 1600 and 2000. The main difference between the models is vertical and horizontal travel – 2,500mm, 4,000mm and 3,500mm – whereas longitudinal travel spans from 2,000mm to 8,000mm and over.
The amply dimensioned table, structural rigidity and operational travel distances allow these machining centres to operate in a single area or in a shuttle configuration, linear axis speed is 40m/min and can reach up to 60m/min.
The twist heads, with a continuous rotation of axis C, axis A rotation from -105° up to +120°, rotational speed up to 100 rpm and 40kW electrospindle, make this solution the perfect choice for high-speed machining operations of complex workpieces as it operates along the 3 dimensions in simultaneous. Machine operation and programming is simple and user friendly.
Thanks to the possibility of axis “A” rotating 120°, it is possible to machine complex undercuts without repositioning the workpiece.
A choice of high-performing electrospindles are available for the range of heads for the CNC FLYMILL machining centres and which reach rotational speeds of up to 40,000 rpm and 137Nm torque (continuous operation) offering high-speed machining both for rough milling and finishing operations and ideal for composite materials, light alloys, thin steel and superalloys.
All the electrospindles are thermally stabilised and a purpose software specifically designed compensates any thermal expansion and drift to ensure maximum machining precision in varying operational conditions.
The range of vertical CNC FLYMILL machining centres has been developed with a compact design for location in a limited space but offers a significant sized work area. A wide choice of optional accessories are available for customising production and machining operations across a broad range of applications in the aerospace and automotive industries, die manufacturing and precision engineering.
A dust extraction system fitted to the nose of the spindle, automatic tool magazine which can hold up to 150 tools, top folding closure to enclosure the work area, radio frequency workpiece probe, laser tool setup are just some of the Breton optional accessories to offer a customised solution to satisfy specific production and machining requirements.
