NUMERICALLY CONTROLLED MACHINING CENTRES ROVER A G FT SERIES 2231, 2243,

2264

As guarantee of the quality of its products and services, BIESSE has been certified ISO 9001 since

1995 and works in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 norms.

Most of the technological components assembled on the machining centres are produced by

companies of the Biesse Group or by world-wide known companies included in the Biesse "Register

of Qualified Suppliers", which have strictly cooperated with Biesse through the years.

The running tests of each machining centre include the following stages:

· Intermediate control of operating units and pre-assembled components

· Non-stop running test as machining simulation for a minimum period of 10 hours

· Control of X and Y axes precision and positioning repeatability by means of an

interferometric laser (VDI/3441 norm)

· Gauging of the X and Y axes through a software function: the values detected during the

laser tests are elaborated by the N.C. and transmitted to the axes drives in order to improve

the positioning precision

· Functional tests for routing and boring operations on panels positioned on all the machine

origins

STRUCTURE

All the machine structural components have been designed with a CAD product for solid modelling

which allows determining the possible structural distortions caused by static and dynamic loads. The

correct dimensions of the most critical components are elaborated by a software for finite elements

structural calculation which, by simulating the work conditions, allows to determine the most stressed

areas which need strengthening.

The accurate structural design grants to the BIESSE machining centres maximum rigidity, high

precision in time and perfect machining finishing even during heavy-duty working cycles.

Base frame

The machine frame is made of thick electrowelded steel sheets, properly strengthened in the most

stressed areas.

The mechanical machining are performed in a single setup to ensure maximum accuracy.

Upright beam

The upright beam, mobile in the longitudinal direction (X axis) is made of electrowelded steel with

gantry structure: thick steel sheets and reinforcing transversal elements minimizes the twists

generated by the material stress relief generated by metal machining and obtain the highest levels of

precision.

The beam is stabilized before machining to release the tension accumulated during welding

operations.

To achieve the highest precision the mechanical machining are performed in a single setup.

Transversal and vertical carriages

The transversal carriage (Y axis) and the vertical carriage (Z axis) are made of an aluminium light

alloy casting which is stabilized and then machined in a single setup for maximum precision.

MOVEMENT OF CONTROLLED AXES

Axes drives and motor systems

Biesse uses Brushless motors, controlled by digital axes drives.

The interfacing between axes drives and numerical control is digital.

The digital system Mechatrolink allows the following:

· Higher machining speed, since a portion of the toolpath is controlled by the axis drive

Quote Ref ACOF004477 - Page 6 of 44

Code / Description Quantity

instead of the numerical control

· Higher working precision, thanks to a faster data processing

· Higher reliability, thanks to a reduced wiring system which eliminates electrical interferences

that may occur on analogue systems

· Reduced machine stops and downtime, thanks to the errors diagnostic with explanatory

messages displayed directly on the N.C.

X and Y axes transmission system

The operating unit moves along the longitudinal axis (X axis) and transversal axis (Y axis) by rack

and pinion system (a solution that BIESSE is been using for twenty years) which grants high

acceleration and movement speed.

BIESSE uses a tempered and ground rack with helical teeth and a precision reducer with single

pinion.

The preloaded pinion system eliminates backlash and therefore grants smoother movement and

maximum positioning precision.

Both rack and pinions are built in accuracy class 6 (DIN 3962 norm).

The mobile upright beam has two independent motors, one on each side of the base frame.

Z axis transmission

As the operating unit moves in the vertical direction (Z axis) with a relatively short travel, BIESSE

uses the ballscrew system with preloaded nut for backlash compensation and repeatability in

positioning precision. The movement is transmitted to the screw through a flexible joint.

The ball screws are built in accuracy class ISO 5.

GUIDES OF CONTROLLED AXES

Axes guides

All axes moves on tempered and rectified steel linear guides by preloaded recirculating balls

bearings.

Each balls bearing is equipped with 4 sliding gaskets of which 2 internal and 2 external, to protect

the bearing from chips and dust intrusion.

The size and the great pitch between the guides grant high precision and perfect machining finishing

performed by the operating units.

MANUAL CENTRALZED LUBRICATION SYSTEM

For an easier maintenance, the machine is equipped with a centralized lubrication system with 2

greasing points. At each time interval set in the numerical control, a message automatically pops up

on the screen, signalling the need for lubrication. The operator can use the pump supplied with the

machine to manually convey the lubricant to 2 distributors, which sends the grease to:

Recirculating balls bearings of the X, Y and Z axes

Rack and pinions system of the X and Y transmissions

Ballscrew nut of the Z axis transmission

WORK AREA

FT Worktable

The worktable is made of stratified phenolic, it includes a vacuum locking system for the pieces and

it is machined with a 30mm pitch grid for the rapid placement of gasket or standard vacuum modules

through an adaptor. The entire worktable is equipped with vacuum inlets (D=10mm) with 150mm

centerdistance, and is supplied with patented plugs for a quick removal. The worktable can be

configured based on need with M8 threaded inserts (pitch 30mm) for jig installation or other clamping

BiesseNest Module

Entry-level software module for nested-based manufacturing.

BiesseNest, starting from a nesting project of single programs to be produced, automatically places

them on a sheet of rough material in order to minimize waste and optimize machining and tool

changing operations.

The result is a series of BiesseWorks programs (.bpp) which can be manually edited if needed.

A BiesseNest project allows the import of:

· BiesseWorks programs (.bpp), even parametric, with the possibility of modifying the

parameters values

· CID3 and CIX files

Quote Ref ACOF004477 - Page 10 of 44

Code / Description Quantity

· DXF drawings

BiesseNest has a "true shape" nesting capability.

The machining are arranged in order to minimize tool changing operations and machine movement,

and to perform through cuts at the end of the program.

BiesseNest includes a labelling functionality and for each nesting program it is possible to:

· Print a single label for each piece produced following the machining sequence, sheet by

sheet

· Print the drawing of each nesting layout with identification marks to aid the operator sticking

the label in the proper component

· Optimize the automatic labels placement in order to avoid labels being damaged (only for

automatic labelling system)

The nesting project can be created manually in BiesseNest or automatically imported through an

external file with one of the following formats:

· Formatted text file .txt (i.e. a comma separated values file CSV) which can be created by

an external software or from an Excel spreadsheet

· XML file

Statistic report

Machine statistics is a software environment capable of collecting general information on machine

events in order to monitor productivity and reliability over time.

Customers can choose directly which events to be recorded, in example the machine set-up,

production, authorized pauses, lubrication cycles, etc.

Emergency recovery procedure

This function allows operators to restart an interrupted working due to a machine emergency stop.

The program restarts exactly from where it was interrupted, by following a specific procedure. The

working can be restarted when the emergency stop happened during:

· A routing cycle with the electrospindle

· A drilling cycle with the boring head

· A cutting cycle with a blade

· An automatic tool changing cycle

· Any ISO instruction programmed movement

The introduction of this functionality avoids discarding half-finished components, which sometimes

are made of valuable materials (rare woods, etc.). It also allows operators to save time in case of

long programs execution.

Tool life calculation function

The NC memorizes the distance covered by each routing tool and compares it to a value set by the

operator.

When this set value is reached, a persistent warning message is displayed on the screen.

This message will be displayed each time a given tool has reached the value set by the operator.

Hardware output (alternate or continuous, chosen by the customer) allows the connection of an

external device (for instance a flashing light or a siren) which will be activated when the message

appears on the screen.

7212807 1

13 kW (17,4 HP) operating unit with 5 interpolating axes, HSK F63 adaptor and liquid cooling.

This unit allows the numerically controlled interpolation of the electrospindle on 5 axes.

A Brushless motor controlled by a digital drive and a Harmonic Drive reduction unit with no

backlashes control the orientation of the operating unit.

The 5-axes operating unit is fixed directly to the vertical carriage (Z axis) with no interposed

pneumatic movements, and therefore with no additional tolerances which could negatively influence

the group rigidity and the working precision. Thanks to its relatively small dimensions, this unit can

reach parts of the pieces to be worked which other types of 5-axes units available on the market

cannot reach. The electrospindle is equipped with ceramic bearings, which can work at a very high

rotation speed, with a pressurization system which protects it from dust and with a blower which

cleans the tool-holder during tool change. The dissipation of the heat produced by the electrospindle

during machining operations is granted by a closed circuit system for liquid cooling. The 5-axes

operating unit does not require any periodic lubrication, since its components are lubricated for life.

In addition to the standard tests normally performed by BIESSE, the running tests of a machining

centre equipped with the 5-axes operating unit include circular interpolation tests carried out by

means of electronic equipment and BALL-BAR system, in compliance with the UNI ISO 230-4:1998

norm.

Technical specifications:

11 kW (15 Hp) at 12.000 rpm in S1 duty

13 kW (17,4 Hp) at 12.000 rpm in S6 duty

Max. rotation speed: 20.000 rpm

C axis: 360° non-stop rotation

C axis rotation speed: 12.4 rpm

B axis positioning: +/- 100°

B axis rotation speed: 12.4 rpm.

The programming of workings which require the angular positioning of the 5-axes operating unit can

be performed through the BiesseWorks Advanced programming system, which allows to:

define a "virtual" face with a specific orientation in space and program the workings to be carried

out on that face;

define the unit orientation and perform its angular positioning.

The programming of workings which require the interpolation on 4 or 5 axes of the operating unit can

be performed through specific software to be chosen among those available on the market, to be

approved by BIESSE.

This software would also control the angular positioning of the unit, as an alternative to the

Code / Description Quantity

BiesseWorks Advanced system.

During the execution of a program, the numerical control automatically checks the possible collisions

of the 5-axes operating unit with the work table. Since this control is quite precautionary, the

possibility of the operating unit to perform particular workings might be limited by the NC: the

operator can however carry out the program, after checking the actual possible collisions by him.

*Requires BiesseWorks Advanced version or another external software package approved by

BIESSE to manage the 5 axes operating unit.

*Requires the remote keyboard

*Requires the liquid cooling box or the heat exchanger

*Requires sensors on all the pneumatic stops

*On FT machines requires the additional row of stops placed in the worktable

*On FT machines requires the extensions for pneumatic stops
