Heavy steel plate processing made easyCastleford-based Ficep UK Ltd (www.ficep.co.uk) has released its Tipo G31 multi-operation CNC machining centre for heavy steel plate.

The Tipo G31 can drill, mill, mark, scribe, tap and chamfer steel plates up to 100mm thick x 3,100mm wide for sectors such as agriculture, earthmoving and mining.

It can be equipped with dual spindles (featuring an independent sub-axis) that increase productivity over single-spindle lines by approximately 40%. Up to 24 tools can be made available for each spindle.

The Tipo G31 features a double-bridge structure with the spindle or spindles located within the two bridges to maximise spindle rigidity and accuracy of spindle travel.

A hold-down clamp secures the plate, avoiding any vibrations that could compromise part quality, accuracy or tool life.

Once the material clamp is engaged, the sub-axis of the Tipo G31 performs all operations without needing to clamp, unclamp and reposition the material in the length direction for each spindle’s operations.

If required, the Tipo G31 can also be equipped with two plasma torches (straight or bevel) and up to three oxy-cutting torches. There is also an option to extend both the in-feed and out-feed tables to process plates up to 12.2m long (6.1m is the standard maximum length).

Be seen in all the right places!
