High speed 5-axis CNC machining center

Movable-bridge Movable-bridge machining center specifically designed for high speed processing of plastic and composite materials, providing exceptional motion dynamics to ensure high productivity. The advanced structural design avoids machining vibration and achives excellent finishing quality:

  • very large working areas for the maximum production freedom
  • broad variety of working areas (single zone or tandem cycle)
  • the compact design enables handling and transport without removing any mechanical part, ensuring reduced time for machine restarting
  • a dedicated software for trimming path self-learning enables creating the cutting program directly from the sample workpiece on the machining centre, thanks also to a mobile push-button panel complete with joystick and touch-screen for the control of all CNC functions

athena is available also with rotating tables (TR) and with removable tables APC (Automatic Pallet Change).

Advantages

FASTER PROGRAMMING AND CONTOURING
Avoids any repositioning operations thanks to the CX5 operating unit, characterized by the the largest rotary XY axis on the market.
15% reduction in cutting times and programming of contouring cuts

REDUCTION IN CYCLE TIME RESPONSIVENESS AND SPEED WHERE AND WHEN NEEDED
Dedicated dynamics, during both acceleration and braking, for all cutting cycle phases.
13% reduction in comprehensive machining times due to shorter repositioning spaces required between one phase and the next.

CLEANING OF WORKTABLE IN ZERO TIME
Zero chips on the work surface thanks to the monobloc frame integrating the table with the base. The chips generated during machining fall directly into the collection tanks placed on the ground, which are easy and quick to remove.

MINIMUM ENCUMBRANCE AND MAXIMUM WORKING VOLUMES
Maximum exploitation of the space taken by the machining centre with reference to the machinable cube. The compact and rigid fame of the machining centre has been designed for maximum closeness possible to the work strokes, so as to obtain incomparable exploitation of the workshop room in connection with the maximum machinable dimensions.
