Your PLUS in production – VISION-ST (staircase)
This machine provides three additional routing motors for your staircase production. These units are mounted to the Y-slide and connected to the cardanic head. Each routing motor moves downwards individually and possesses collet chucks.
As a standard, in staircase production a motor (9.0 kW) is used for shaping the outer contours of strings and steps. Another motor (6.7 kW) processes the slots and grooves at the steps and strings. The design of the third routing motor (6.7 kW) with integrated height tracing (float-mounted) permits the manufacture of high-precision profiles at steps and strings. This conception allows for the main processes in staircase production to be attributed to several routing spindles.
Thus, tool changing time is minimised. The utilization of the main routing motor at the cardanic working head is limited to horizontal and freeform processes, as well as to sawing processes at the steps. Moreover, the tool changing system is still moving along the X-axis next to the main routing motor. Compared to other solutions, in staircase production this machine conception provides for a savings potential of about 20 % in production time caused by a reduction in tool changing time.
