Comet X6 HP

4-axis CNC machining centre designed for working bars or parts in aluminium, PVC, light alloys in general and steel up to 2 mm.

The machine can operate in single-piece and multi-piece mode, with a single work area for bars up to 7 m in length. The COMET X6 HP version allows working in pendular mode, with two independent work areas and 2 supplementary axes to position the vices and the reference stops; it allows operation in dynamic pendular mode, carrying out vice positioning in concurrent operation time.

Each model has a 10-place tool magazine, on the X axis gantry, with the possibility of hosting an angle machining head and a milling disc, to perform machining on the 5 sides of the workpiece. The 4th NC axis allows the electrospindle to continuously rotate from 0° to 180° to perform the machining on the profile edge.

It also has a mobile work table that facilitates the workpiece loading/unloading operation and significantly increases the workable section.

Power and flexibility of the electrospindle
7 kW S1 high torque electrospindle allows heavy duty machining. It moves along the A-axis allowing rotations from 0° to 180°, so the profile can be machined on 3 faces without being repositioned. It can be used for some types of steel extrusions as well as for aluminium profiles, thanks to the software-adjusted lubricating system. With its double tank it allows either minimum oil circulation or oil emulsion spray-mist.
Glass protection
Safe, perfect, resistant, long-lasting. These are the advantages of choosing glass for protecting the new Comet machining centres. Glass is also easy to clean and less susceptible to scratches and wear. Machine cuts operate to flag machine statuses, thanks to a light colour interface. The whole visor slides downwards, thus making it easier to load the workpieces; additionally, the ends feature aluminium guards that act as a support plane if needed.
Vice positioner
Vice unit positioning is performed by two numerically controlled axes, H and P, parallel to the X-axis, with on-board reference stop. This solution allows positioning stops all along the machine to work in multi-workpiece mode with one profile for every pair of vices. Furthermore, the positioning of the vices takes place independently of the operational condition of the spindle (X-axis).

Comet X6 HP Label printer Emmegi
Label printer

The industrial label printer allows each cut profile to be identified with identifying features from the cutting list. In addition, barcode printing enables easy identification of the profile itself, which is particularly useful for subsequent machining steps on Machining Centres or assisted assembly lines.

Tool magazine
The tool magazine is integrated on the X axis, in the lower part and behind the electrospindle. It allows great reduction of tool change times. This function is particularly useful in the extrusion head and tail machining, avoiding the stroke to get to the magazine, as it moves simultaneously with the electrospindle and its positions. The magazine can contain up to 10 tool holders with relevant tools, which can be set at the operator’s discretion. A sensor detects correct cone positioning.

Operator interface
The possibility of rotating the monitor on its vertical axis allows the operator to view the screen from any position. The user interface has a 24” touchscreen display in 16:9 format, portrait mode, equipped with the necessary USB connections for PC and CNC remote interfaces. It also features an operator panel, mouse, and it is set up for connecting barcode reader and remote operator panel.
Foldaway tunnel
Integrated with the machine’s aesthetics and design, thanks to the perforated sheet metal for transparency and lightness, the tunnel opens and closes as needed. As its length can be reduced when not in use, it helps save space at the workshop. The outlet for the chip conveyor belt and its engine are built into the lower section, in view of an aesthetic and functional design.

HP version
Comet has two operation modes: a single work area for bars up to 7 m long, or two independent work areas in double operation mode. The machine in HP version is equipped with 2 additional axes for positioning of vices and reference stops, that allow positioning the vices while the machine is working in double mode.
Dynamic double operation
The innovative machining mode allows minimising downtimes when loading and unloading the workpieces to be machined. The system allows, in the two distinct and independent work areas, to simultaneously carry out the loading/unloading of extruded profiles on one side, and machining of workpieces on the other, with different lengths and/or codes. This solution makes the machine very flexible, which is highly suitable for the field of window/door frames and for small work orders, where machining is required for small lots of different pieces.
