To increase productivity and accuracy for high-speed machining of large pieces, Le Créneau Industriel (Annecy-le-Vieux, France) has extended its line of CRENO UGV 5 AXES machining centers with an overhead moving gantry fitted with linear motors, allowing x- and y-axis feed rates up to 60m/min (197 ft/min). Features include long and accurate z-axis travel (more than 2,200 mm/87 inches); standard x-axis travel of 4,000 mm/157 inches to 16,000 mm/630 inches (or more); and standard y-axis travel of 2,000 mm to 5,800 mm (78.7 inches to 228.4 inches). The two movements of the 5-axis head are driven by brushless motors equipped with heavy-duty epicycloidal reducers. Available options include T-slot tables, flat steel tables with tapped holes and a vacuum system. The CRENO centers are said to be well suited for high-speed machining of composite materials, including sandwich panels, plastic materials, aluminum and electrical insulating materials.
