CNC 5-axis machining centre with mobile gantry, built for milling, drilling, threading and cutting large bars in aluminium, PVC, light alloys and steel. The mobile part of the machine is composed of a drive gantry on a high precision rack. The (11 kW in S1) electrospindle with HSK-63F toolholder allows performing machining operations, even heavy-duty ones, with optimal results in terms of speed and accuracy. The new local guarding cabin has been designed to offer optimal functionality, accessibility and lighting while fulfilling safety and ergonomics requirements. Large glass windows allow the operator to monitor the machining operations being executed and, thanks to the cabin complete opening system in two separate sections, also an easy access during cleaning and maintenance phases. An 18-place tool magazine is housed inside. The 450 mm blade tool is housed separately inside a dedicated magazine. SATELLITE XLE features new motorised vices that, in double machining mode, position themselves independently and in concurrent operation time to the machining processes of the spindle in the opposite work area. The compact and strong vices can be easily configured without the use of tools for geometric adjustments. The new stops allow full coverage of the work area and disengage the area in case of machining on the profile heads. All CNC axes are absolute and do not require resetting upon machine restart.

The vice unit can ensure the correct, safe and fast clamping of large profiles and does not require tools for its geometric adjustments. Each unit slides on linear guides on machine surface. The motorized vices, each equipped with its own motor, can be positioned independently in the work area. In dynamic double operation mode, the CNC simultaneously manages the movement of the vices and of the mobile gantry in the two separate work areas, thus allows significant increases in productivity. Using absolute reference axes allows reducing the initialisation time required every time the machine is restarted.
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.
The optional cut-and-separate feature allows obtaining several machined and separated profiles from a single bar, avoiding the need to cut the different pieces in advance. The large cutting capacity of the blade unit allows separation cuts on large profiles. The machine can be equipped with a label printer to optimise profile management in the following phases.
