XCEEDER is a range of high-speed vertical machining centres for milling medium size workpieces in superalloys, steel, aluminium and composite materials. It has been designed and developed by Breton S.p.A to satisfy demanding machining requirements across various industrial applications such as the aerospace industry, precision engineering and die manufacturing.
The gantry structure, Metalquartz technology, rotary tilting work table with direct drive are significant and innovative features ensuring a high production output and performance enclosed in a compact design.
The improved structural rigidity compared to a conventional metal or engineered polymer structure is designed to absorb up to 10 times more vibrations offering high machining performance when milling complex workpieces with 5 axes. The thermal symmetry of the machine structure and thermal stabilising system ensure maximum machining precision when operational and production conditions vary.
Xceeder 1200 RTHD offers an improved work area measuring X axis 1,200mmm, Y axis 1,000mm and Z axis 700mm.
The various structural components guarantee high performance and efficient machine dynamics with a linear axis speed of 60m/min and an acceleration speed of 6m/sec2.
This machining centre mounts a rotary tilting table which incorporates direct drive technology and has a diameter of 1,100mm, continuous axis C and axis A with a +120° to -30° rotation, rotation speed reaches up to 60 rpm. The Xceeder is designed to machine workpieces with weights of up to 1,700 kg.
The work area of the Xceeder 900Rt has been maximised to offer improved machining performance with increased axis travel - 900mm X, 900mm Y and 600mm Z – and the efficient machine dynamics allow for linear axis speeds up to 60m/min and accelerations of 6m/sec2.
This machining centre mounts a rotary tilting table which incorporates direct drive technology and has a diameter of 800mm, continuous axis C and axis A with a +110° to -30° rotation and rotation speed up 100 rpm. This model is designed to machine and workpieces with weights of up to 1,000kg.
The machining centre is supplied with four different electrospindles which incorporate a heat control system:
a 55 kW spindle with a 300Nm torque in S1, 480Nm in S6 with a rotation speed of 14,000 rpm is designed for intensive milling operations and the right solution for machining special alloys as titanium and Inconel;
a second 40kW spindle with a 100NM torque in S1 and rotation speed of 18,000 rpm ensures maximum machining flexibility and performance across different materials as steel and light alloys;
a third 40kW spindle with a 51Nm torque in S1 with a rotational speed reaching up to 28,000 rpm;
a fourth 40kW spindle has been purposely designed and developed for precision finishing and milling operations for aluminium and composite materials and reaches a rotational speed of up to 40,000 rpm.
All models in the range can be supplied with a tool magazine for holding 30, 60 or 150 tools, automatic pallet changeover and can incorporates other optional accessories to satisfy the most demanding production requirements.
