CNC Controlled horizontal Point-to-Point Drilling, Gluing & Dowel Inserting Work-Center for absolute, incremental, variable (parametric) programming of boring patterns.
X-Axis is CNC controlled and driven by rack & pinion for fast acceleration/ deceleration of working unit; Y- & Z-axis are set by mechanical digital counters.
Total of (8) "quick change" pneumatic holddowns.
Dowel driving & horizontal boring integrated into (1) station; the dowel driving unit is located alongside the boring station; both units are mounted on (1) support.
Horizontal drilling spindle at 3,000/5,000/8,000 RPM can be setup for 6 - 8 or 10 mm, dowel length from 25 - 50 mm.
Doweling station includes: Vibrating hoppers with (2) single-drop device and (2) outlet tubes, insertion head & dowel driving with air impulse; mechanical dowel diameter & dowel length control prevents the insertion of any oversized dowels; setup for 8 mm dia. x 35 mm long dowels.
Glue valve/amount is controlled via software and can be adjusted by milliseconds; (2) standard separate stainless steel 1-1/2 gallon pressurized tanks (one for glue, one for water for occasional rinsing cycle).
THIS MACHINE WAS REFURBISHED BY GANNOMAT IN 2010.
