This new product line features an exclusive secondary “X” axis with improved accuracy and productivity as it is not necessary to unclamp, reposition and re-clamp for each “X” axis (length axis) movement. This capability also permits scribing on all four surfaces to eliminate all manual layout which can be automatically imported from such CAD systems as SDS2 or Tekla. The secondary axis also provides the ability to generate slotted holes, copes and large holes that exceed the maximum capability of the Excalibur 12.
The Excalibur is also furnished with a ball screw spindle feed that features 25 HP direct drive spindle that delivers this power directly to the tool as there is no power loss from outdated transmission designs. In addition to the 25 HP at the tool the system generates up to 3,000 RPM to use carbide tools to their maximum capability.
Once the spindle is at the programmed position, top and bottom internal clamps quickly secures the material as the drill positions to the programmed gauge line and commences drilling.
The versatility of this CNC system can be exhibited when processing the following typical applications:
• Flange drilling
• Web drilling
• Automatic sequencing from one section to the next
• Drilling of angles
• Processing of plate detail
• Drilling of structural tubes
