PowerMax is a large working volume, 5 axes (6 in case the rotary table is selected), horizontal, subtractive manufacturing center for Aluminum and Titanium parts.
PowerMax’s 3 linear axes travel along parallel sets of linear guides and optical scales mounted to thermally-symmetric sub-structures, driven with high-torque, high-power, coupled gear-motors controlled via Siemens, Fanuc, or Heidenhain CNCs. The same approach has been adopted for its C and A axes.
These choices for its design assure to PowerMax superior static and dynamic positional accuracies at high speeds and accelerations in its working envelope for a constant chip removal rate throughout the entire milling volume.
The design provides PowerMax with superior static and dynamic positioning accuracies at high speeds and accelerations in its working envelope for a constant chip removal rate throughout the entire milling volume.
Kinematic Configuration is partially reversed
The milling head moves:
- horizontally along X with the column
- vertically along Y within the column
The part being milled moves horizontally along Z axis on the pallet.
In the 6 axes version, the pallet is replaced by a moving rotary table.
Manufacturing of complex geometry Al and Ti parts
Tight tolerances and surface finishing throughout the entire working volume
Large milling volume
Reduced machining time
- High ROI/Low TCO
Low capital investment and low operational cost
