5-axis CNC mobile gantry machining centre, designed to run milling, drilling, threading and cutting processes on large bars in aluminium, PVC, light alloys and steel. The mobile part of the machine mainly consists of a gantry equipped with precision motorisation rack. The high- power electrospindle (15 kW in S1) with HSK-63F tool connection allows even heavy-duty machining to be run with excellent speed and accurate results. The new local safety cab was designed to combine top functionality, accessibility, soundproofing and light with safety and ergonomic requirements. The operator has broad glazed surfaces to check machining execution and, thanks to the total opening system of the cab in two separate parts, easy access during cleaning and maintenance. The cab interior includes the complete segregation of the work area from the remaining sections of the tool magazine and other accessories supplied on the trolley, ensuring maximum chip collection towards the conveyor belt and, as optional, dedicated extraction of machining fumes. The 24-place tool magazine is housed in the mobile gantry; it is equipped with an exchanger arm system that considerably reduces tool change times. A 500 mm blade tool is housed separately in a dedicated magazine system. SATELLITE XTE features new servocontrolled clamps that, in double operation, independently position themselves in concurrent time with respect to the spindle machining processes in the opposite working field. The clamps, which are compact and sturdy, are easy to configure without the use of tools for geometric adjustments. The new stops enable complete coverage of the working field and disengage the area when machining profile heads. All CNC axes are absolute and do not require resetting upon restarting the machine.

The local guarding cabin has been designed to offer optimal functionality, accessibility, soundproofing and lighting while fulfilling safety and ergonomics requirements. The innovative and refined design makes the machine unique and unmistakeable. The large glass windows allow the operator to easily and safely control the execution of the machining operations. Cabin internal structure optimises the conveying of swarf and scraps to the base, housing the conveyor belt, thus simplifying the maintenance and cleaning phases on all delicate parts. The exhauster, optionally integrated in the cabin, allows dedicated extraction of machining fumes.
The optional cutting and separation function directly from the bar, allows a series of machined profiles to be obtained from one bar and then finally separated into individual elements, avoiding the need to put short cuts that have been previously cut into machining. The wide capacity of the blade cutting unit allows separation cuts to be run on large dimensioned profiles, indeed in most cases eliminating the entire machining phase, which is usually carried out upstream by the cutting-off machine. In this case, the machine can be equipped with a label printer, to manage the tracking of profiles in subsequent phases.
The vice unit is able to ensure correct and safe blocking of aluminium, PVC, steel and light alloy profiles in large dimensions. Each unit slides on linear guides on machine surface. The positioning in static double operation mode models is managed via X axis. The dynamic double operation models are equipped with a positioning system with centralised motorisation, which allows the vices to move independently from the carriage and allows positioning in concurrent operation time. Counterblocks can be mounted quickly and accurately making the machine extremely versatile. The vice unit is available optionally in double hold-down device version to machine two profiles in parallel.
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.
