In the first half of this year, Nicolás Correa completed the installation of a large FOX MT model turning-milling machine at the Italian customer C.M.G. DI GIANI GIORGIO & C. SAS
The installation consists of a Gantry type machine, model FOX MT with a travel of 14 metres in the X axis, 4.25 metres in the Y axis and 1.75 metres in the Z axis. This large working area has been divided with a pendulum panel into two zones to make the machine more productive. The first zone allows to machine 5 faces of prismatic workpieces up to 9 x 3 metres. The second zone incorporates a turning plate with a diameter of 3 metres. This second zone allows turning, milling and milling-turning of circular parts up to 3.5 metres turning diameter. This flexible solution is complemented by an automatic head changer system. A universal milling head that allows turning every 0.02° thanks to its patented double hirth crown coupling. In addition, the machine is equipped with a turning head that allows the tool to be swivelled every 2.5° and uses a C8 capto clamping system. Both heads can change tools automatically thanks to the ATC 120 installed on the side of the milling machine column.
