In the aviation industry, there is an increasing trend towards larger and larger monolithic structural components. The ECOSPEED series, featuring a horizontal spindle and a vertical pallet arrangement, has been specially developed for high-speed machining of these large structural aluminum components. A pallet transport system feeds pallets to the machine, the storage station and the loading/unloading station. The innovative Sprint Z3 parallel kinematic machining head, provides the user with the optimum 5-axis simultaneous machining process.
At a maximum cutting volume of up to 8,000 cm3/min, the machine concept is the world's most productive solution for cutting aluminium structural components, drastically cutting both production times and costs.
