Frame drilling machine


SKU: N/A Category:


This machine drills holes at programmable intervals in perpendicular faces of stock material to create frames.  It is designed to accommodate 20mm to 80mm wide material and equipped with ER16 collets from 1 to 10mm for securely mounting drill bits. All linear motion is accomplished with precision ground steel rails and long lasting recirculating ball bearings.  Spindles are ball screw actuated, while the largest linear axis is driven via rack and pinion.  All three axes are driven by stepper motors in an open loop configuration with limit switches.  The drilling and clamping systems are independently adjustable.  Clamps are air actuated and controlled via a pneumatic solenoid valve.  This allows for a significant amount of force to be applied to the material stock in the direction of the backstop, in order to register challenging materials firmly for machining.

Spindles can be easily swapped for a range of available sizes and speeds to suit unique material handling needs.

Currently pre-order only, expected to ship by Dec 25.

Specifications subject to change.  All parts modular and reusable.
