At Nicolás Correa, stock removal capacity is one of the main pillars of our product design strategy.
At Nicolás Correa we believe that a milling machine should be able to use all its power and torque even under the most strenuous and difficult conditions, with the most demanding cutting tools. There is no point having a huge amount of power if both the head and the machine are not capable of transforming it into chips without generating vibrations.
In the video gallery below we have tried to show stock removal operations being carried out under a range of complex conditions, with complex materials.
The aim is to make use of all the machine's power, utilising the most appropriate cutter feed and revolutions and programming the correct depth of cut in order to ensure the consumption of all the spindle power. Moreover, machining is carried out in a spiral in order to guarantee that the machine behaves correctly when the direction of the cutting force changes. Finally, the part is located so that the machine carries out part of the spiral with the ram almost completely extended. Test carried out with our universal automatic head (UAD).
The aim is to carry out an extreme machining operation to verify the rigidity and stability of the machine-head assembly. The robustness of the head is the key to successfully completing this machining task. Moreover, machining is carried out in a spiral in order to guarantee that the machine behaves correctly when the direction of the cutting force changes. Test carried out with our universal automatic head (UAD).
Two of the critical operations in a point roughing process are carried out here: the planing of the crown and the contour cutting of the lateral profile. Both are complex operations for the machine-head assembly, due to both the material from which the point is made (high strength steel) and the geometry of the tool. Test carried out with our high-torque front head, in combination with our double-contact clamping taper.
The aim is to make full use of all the power in the electro-spindle during the aluminium roughing operation. We also included a discontinuous cut to make the operation more difficult. In this case, the aim is to check that all the electro-spindle power is transformed into chips.
