SBA-4 Machining centre is equipped to rout and cut PVCu profiles of up to 6.5m in length. Loading and off loading is done manually and all other processes are achieved through data delivered directly to the machine from the office.
The base is constructed using robust welded steel and this supports the routing and cutting station to ensure accuracy and long life.
Beckhoff Control System
The machine is equipped with the internationally known Beckhoff control system, which ensures flexibility to programme macros easily and efficiently for most window and door styles.
All axis are driven by high dynamic servo-motors for greater speed and accuracy. Working stations have high frequency motors, linear guide bearings and spindles to offer a longer working life for the machine.
The routing station consists of 12 dedicated routing tools to ensure the correct routing operation is achieved efficiently and accurately. Three-step positioning allows for faster routing speeds according to the programme used.
The machine is supplied with 3 x 550mm large diameter saw-blades and 3.0kW motors for all 45-90-45 degree cutting operations.
The machine is supplied with profile locating clamping on the loading station to avoid rolling. This also ensures accurate positioning of the gripper unit at all times. Routing station and cutting station clamps work in conjunction with the profile related programme. The 17” touchscreen monitor enables easy access and control.
The computer is equipped with Windows Embedded software and data transfer is available via the network or USB interface. It allows full integration with various window and door production software. All error messages can be monitored from the screen and are accessible via team viewer if required.
The waste conveyor system automatically transports all waste to the off cut bin. Waste optimisation can be controlled by the machine or your software supplier.
