ANDROID II

Linear technology for micron level tolerances and excellent surface finishes.

For years, tool, die, and mold makers have relied on EDM to produce tools in hardened steels that were difficult or impossible to machine. While EDM is certainly up to the job, it adds an extra step to the metal cutting process. And with the constant pressure you’re under to cut lead times and streamline processes, we thought that was just one step too many.

To boost productivity on high-precision, high-quality jobs, you need a tool that knows how to deliver accuracy, quality, precision, and speed—all at the same time.

The Android II is that tool: a well-built machine that brings together the latest advances in cutting power, working speed, rigid design, heat dispersal, and flexible operation to ensure precise work and high speeds.

TOP-SPEED PRODUCTION CAPABILITIES

  • High-speed machining technology has progressed rapidly over the last few years and is ready to take on this task using high-RPM spindles, extremely accurate linear motor servo drive systems, and high-speed machine controllers. The Android II is a machining center designed from the ground up for extremely precise, hard-steel machining at high spindle speeds and high traverse rates.

RELIABLE BY DESIGN

  • The Android II’s heat-symmetric basic frame structure with a high-grade cast iron base ensures twist rigidity against spindle head motion. Its structure guarantees a reduction in thermal displacement, leading to a balance of high rigidity and a reduced weight. The two horizontally opposed, flat linear motors equipped with powerful magnets ensure clearance in the side-ways, canceling out any attraction forces.

The system’s dual-layer cooling system combines direct forced-oil cooling with a wide-range jacket to separate the spindle head from the casting. Leading to complete heat isolation, the double cooling system positioned between the heat-generating coils is matched by an in-line oil chiller unit to ensure complete control of the coolant temperature. Hot air will never collect at the spindle thanks to the Android II’s centralized exhaust and outside airflow system.

FINE WORK AT ANY SKILL LEVEL

  • Coupled with the Fanuc 31i-B5 CNC controller, the Android II is an exceptionally well-built machine tool that can be operated by users of nearly any skill level. With ten (10) preprogrammed machining modes available, your operators can produce great results with unsurpassed speed and accuracy—even in the most complex 3D contours.
