Hermle C22 UP Dynamic with PW150 Pallet Loader - New for 2020
Our latest 5 axis machine is the most impressive addition yet!
Building on the accuracy and ability of our Hermle C400, The C22 not only offers full simultaneous 5-Axis CNC milling machining, but also provides our newest ability of automated batch production.
The PW150 pallet loader enables multiple jobs to be set up ready even whilst the C22 is running. This means vastly reduced down time, and the added benefit of being able to run practically 24-7
2019 saw the introduction of our second and largest capacity 5-Axis machine.
Hermle are top of their game when in comes to machining centres, offering unrivalled accuracy and reliability.
Combined with our HyperMILL programming software, the C400 has continually surprised us in it's abilities.
Using a whole suite of sensors, the C400 constantly monitors potential dimensional tolerance due to temperature change; tool accuracy; motor servo precision and much more. All these checks ensure that every part we make can be consistent to within microns.
Spinner U5 620
2017 brought our fist (of many!) fully simultaneous 5-Axis CNC milling machines. The Spinner quickly proved to be a vital tool in our lineup.
As with our 4th Axis, the Spinner enables us to carry out much more complex operations in one pass. This makes machining challenging components more efficient by reducing the number of setups, time, and additional jig fixture costs.
Haas VF4 SS - With a 12,000 rpm spindle, this machine offers the advantages of speed, precision and flexibility, but with the valuable ablity of capacity and massive machine travel which allows us to produce very large components.
Doosan MD 6700
3-Axis machines play an important role here at AliTech. With their ability to handle very large parts in their stride, they remain the backbone of our inventory.
In 2018, as part of our move to larger premises, we invested in extra 3-Axis machining capacity with a new Doosan MD 6700.
Put straight to work in supporting our Haas VF4, the MD6700 is able to run for extended cycle times by utalising thermal compensation, oil-cooled spindle and oil-cooled ball circulation spindles.
High Speed 3-Axis
Haas DM-2 - As AliTech has developed and grown, there has been an ever increasing requirement of batch manufacture from our customers.
Our latest edition, The DM-2 has been added to our line up for one main reason, speed. With a 15,000 rpm spindle speed and rapids in excess of 60m/min, this machine is proving perfect for low volume batch production.
Hass' latest machine is already a hit on the factory floor. Specifically set up for machining aluminium, production times are greatly reduced
Nikken 320v - An added string to our bow, the Nikken rotary table upgrades the Haas VF4 to a 4 axis machine. This offers a number of benefits, primarily efficiency. Less jig fixures are required on more complex jobs which, in turn, means less time spent on setup, and more time spent on manufacture.
With an upgraded diameter of 400mm and weight capacity of 200kg, this unit is perfect for large jobs that require maching from multiple angles.
Romer Absolute - Along with accompanying software, this 6 axis Inspection Arm complete with accurate laser scanning head, gives us an ability which proves invaluable in our industry:
3D Capture - With such high tolerances and great range, we are able to 3D capture any manor of components. For example, taking all data points from the bottom of an engine block to facilitate in the design of a dry sump system.
Quantum 4 CNC CMM
Inspection Reports - A great deal of our work for the motorsport sector requires an inspection report to accompany each component. This gives our customers peace of mind that their order has been manufactured well within their specified tolerances.
Our quantum 4 CMM allows us to take inspection reports to the next level by utilising batch automation
By simply programming a part inspection sequence, we are able to easily inspect batches of parts and serial them accordingly. A service that provides extremely accurate feedback on part features such as dowel holes, or bearing seats.
PcDmis - This software is the backbone to the Roamer arm, enabling us to reverse engineer a wide veriety of components, but also used to produce inspection reports, when requested, for jobs once completed for customers.
Solidworks - An invaluable tool in our lineup, Solidworks is used for the great majority of our engineering design work making it a perfect 3D design solution for rapid creation of parts, assemblies, 2D drawings and advanced photorealistic rendering.
CAM - 3 & 4-Axis
OneCNC - For 3 & 4-axis work we operate the latest version of OneCNC XR6 Expert, a seamlessly integrated software package ideal for rapid programming and manufacturing. The perfect solution for prototype and small batch runs when you need parts in a hurry!
CAM - 5-Axis
OpenMind hyperMILL - Specifically for our 5-Axis Spinner, We also use the very powerful hyperMILL software for the programming of larger and more complex parts. This allows us to deliver better products faster and more efficiently than ever.
