Cheto maintains that its machines have always had a very good cost-benefit ratio thanks to their versatility, and now the machines have also been adapted to the requirements of Industry 4.0. The new concept on show is said to enhance the products with features pioneering the introduction of new methods and work analyses in line with Industry 4.0. The current models have been adapted with a new optional automatic gun drill, allowing storage of gun drills up to 1.8 meters long. With this new option, the machines will reportedly be able to operate around the clock without the need for human interaction. The new SiC machine model can apparently machine five sides without angular limitation. According to the manufacturers, it has a maximum angle of -25°/+25° and four sides work limitation. The kinematics allow the machining of five sides with only one setup and a working angle of -90°/+45°.
Deep-hole drilling and milling in an Industry 4.0 environment
The Portuguese company Cheto has developed a machine for deep-hole drilling and milling that is also ready for Industry 4.0 requirements. Toolmakers and service providers are seen as the main target group.
