ARGO 70 RM
1.0 BASIC SPECIFICATIONS
The structure is made of a base with a sliding upright in its rear section. Both are in electrowelded steel duly stabilised after each work phase to ensure that there is no interior tension; they are sized to guarantee stability and precision during machining operations.
1.2 Axes Sliding
The axes slide on high precision, robust, reliable linear guide-ways with recirculating ball blocks equipped with oil scrapers and with medium/high preloading.
1.3 Axes Movement
The independent axes are controlled by brushless Yaskawa servomotors by means of: ; Pinion, rack and mechanical system for backlash recovery for X axis (longitudinal) ; High precision ground recirculating ball screw and preloaded lead for Y (transversal) and
Z (vertical) axes. The Z axis drive is equipped with an electro-magnetic brake which is
enabled if mains power is cut-off.
The digital servormotors not only allow for short, optimal positioning and adjustment times, but also high head positioning speed. The position of the axes is detected by means of a rotating transducer.
1.4 Spindle Head
Constructed with a system of crossed tables in lightweight alloy to obtain a reduction in weight, high resistance to loads and accuracy in the mechanical work they perform, all at the same time. The solution used has considerable advantages in terms of machining precision and maintenance.
Designed by Fom Industrie, this electrospindle ensures important performances, both at low number of revolutions as well as at high speed, to satisfy the increasing needs in terms of flexibility. The 4kW electrospindle is equipped with constant torque, rotation speed up to 12,000 rpm, adjustable, positioning 0?/ 90?/ 180? for machining the three profile sides, forced air cooling, ISO 30 DIN 69871 tool coupling and relative presence detecting micro-switch. The tools are locked into place mechanically, and released by means of a pneumatic system. Front and rear high speed precision bearings guarantee strict control of the electrospindle axial and radial stress during the work phases. The electrospindle rotation speed is managed by a static frequency changer (inverter), complete with: ; Display for visualisation of diagnostics in case of anomalies.
; Protection from voltage and current overloads.
; Automatically controlled tool rotation braking action.
; Resistor for braking power dissipation.
1.6 Tools Lubrication
With pure oil, by means of a sprayer with over-pressure device (minimal lubrication)
1.7 Tools Magazine
Located on the upright, protected by a rotating door, it has 6 slots and can rotate in both directions; it is provided with an “absolut” encoder for detecting the position. The
rotation movement is managed by a static frequency changers (inverter) which guarantees more precision and positionig speed.
1.8 Working Area
Situated on the base and made up of:
; 4 pneumatic vices (expandable) for locking the profiles. They slide on flat guide-ways
with manual locking. Manual movement/positioning with position indicated on the control
unit monitor. A sensor mounted on the upright verifies possible collision risk. Clamping
jaws are positioned using a patented pushbutton system. Patented pivoting clamping
system ensures optimum adhesion to the profile.
; 1 retractable sliding pneumatic stop.
1.9 Electric cabinet
Equipped with filters for protection against emission and reception disturbances (EMQ); it is separate from the command console and contains the machine drives, the static frequency changer (inverter), the Vision numeric control complete with the machine control devices; it has an IP 55 protection grade against dust and liquids.
1.10 Command console
It incorporates the user interface made up of a PC, pendant push button strip, Display and alphanumeric keyboard; it includes:
; Connection to laser bar code reader.
; Connection to remote control units.
1.11 Protection and Safety Devices
In compliance with the requirements of EC directive 98/37 and successive modifications, the protection and safety devices are made up of:
; Acoustic insulation head cap.
; Mechanical cams and safety micro-switch for operator protection during alternating work
; Photoelectric cell barrier.
; Rear and lateral barrier fences.
2.0 CONTROL EQUIPMENT

; Graphic representation of machining operations to be carried out (boring, linear milling,
circular milling, slot milling).
; Easy control over machining operations sequence.
; Machining operations graphic simulation.
; Display of the technical information regarding the pieces to be machined and the tools. ; Command selection in graphic mode.
; Creating parametric workpieces and machining operations.
; Creating repeated machining operations
; Automatic calculation of the optimal vice positioning.
