JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2013 - The Thermwood Model 77 series is a heavy duty, high-performance five-axis CNC router specifically developed for three-dimensional machining of non-ferrous metals, composites and other advanced materials.
These applications range from machining patterns and moulds/plugs to trimming and machining production products for the aerospace, aviation, boating and military/defence industries.
This stationary table, high-wall machine starts with a complete working envelope of 5 x 10ft. (1524 x 3048mm) and can expand to larger sizes to fit the application concerned. The M77 was designed using advanced 3D software utilizing finite element analysis and is inspected and calibrated using a precision 3D volumetric laser system. All major welds, including the base and gantry, are stress relieved to provide long-term stability.
Standard configuration for the moving gantry M77 is a 12Hp spindle, 3ft. (915mm) Z clearance, full working envelope, 10-position, automatic rotary tool changer and a patented impact-resistant head. Also standard is Thermwood’s QCore control which is a high-performance, easy to use controller that includes a huge 1 terabyte hard disk for program storage and is enclosed in a dust-protected, air-conditioned cabinet. Additional options include the base table for moving in/out large fixtures, liquid-cooled spindle, continuous C axis and more.
The JEC Composites Show is traditionnaly the place where innovations are launched. 2013 is no exception. Here are in this feature few of these innovations. More are to come on our website and many...
