SORALUCE FRX-16000 floor type milling-boring centre to showcase at EMO 2013


The SORALUCE FXR-16000 milling-boring centre will be exhibited on Hall 13 - Stand B36 of the main worldwide trade fair for metalworking technology, EMO 2013. The FXR milling boring centre is a multi-purpose milling- boring machine. Its rigid stable design provides the highest precision and productivity benefits when machining large components. The machine modular design offers remarkable versatility and can be equipped with a large number of optional accessories and wide range of milling-boring heads, enabling the machine to be adapted to customer’s needs with high efficiency and precision. The machine responds to multitasking and versatility requirements likewise the demand for finishing workpieces in a minimum number of set-ups.

It is the ideal solution for machining components belonging to sectors like: energy , shipbuilding and capital goods, ensuring the highest precision, productivity and reliability for heavy duty components and extremely complex machining operations. The machine offers high performance machining results thanks to its high dynamic driving system and a combined guiding and damping system besides offering the proven optimum in power and cutting speed capabilities, reaching up to 100 kW in S1 operation and 6000 rpm. The extremely heavy machine column allows for vertical traverses of up to 8000 mm and a ram cross traverse of up to 1900 mm, 2900 including quill traverse. Furthermore, due to the travelling column concept of the machine, it can be equipped with several working stations, thus enabling simultaneous machining and loading of different workpieces. Thanks to its flat longitudinal axis design and low profile column connection, the machine centre of gravity is kept very low, enabling high machine stability, reduced foundation costs, improved machine operation and ergonomic maintenance.   Modular quill spindle The SORALUCE FXR milling-boring centre is equipped with a modular quill spindle, a worldwide patented system, unique on the market. The system fully automatically interchanges the quill spindle with the other heads, thus enabling different quill spindles with different diameters and lengths likewise all necessary milling heads to machine components. Compared to traditional quill solutions, the exclusive SORALUCE modular quill spindle enables the same distance between quill spindle and milling heads to be upheld, allowing 5-sided machining in the same set-up without any additional positioning of the workpiece at a long distance from the machine. Ram Balance Additionally the FXR milling-boring centre is also equipped with SORALUCE dynamic ram traverse movement compensation system . The system guarantees the geometrical accuracy of the ram traverse over the Y and Z movements. This system, which consists of a CNC controlled electromechanical system assembled within the vertical saddle, particularly increases precision when the machine is equipped with the automatic head changing system, as it allows for accurate correction of the mechanical ram deviation regardless of the different weights of individual milling heads.
