New CNC machine from Schueco will boost productivity

Leading sustainable building envelope specialist, Schueco UK Ltd, has just launched a new 3-axis CNC machine with a pneumatic rotating support table, capable of delivering a significant boost to both productivity and manufacturing quality and at a price that is extremely competitive.

Designated the Schueco AF 250, this advanced machine is able to increase throughput of windows and doors by reducing fabrication time and enhance the quality of individual components, thanks to the precision and repeatability inherent in computer-controlled machining.For example, for doors the Schueco AF 250 can perform the functions of four different fabricating machines – a copy router, an end-milling machine, a door-hinge drilling machine and a punch – leading to savings in both capital requirements and factory space and optimising overall efficiency.

The Schueco AF 250 is simple to operate using modern control software and connects to Schueco’s advanced SchuCal programming software. Its versatility in use, laser-measured x-axis and automatic 3-sided machining without an angled head, enable it to set new standards in its price class.

Measuring 5280 mm (L), 1640 mm (W) and 1990 mm (H) and weighing approx 2200 kg, the Schueco AF 250 is air-cooled with 3.8 kW spindle running at a maximum speed of 18,00 rpm. Its inherently strong, electro-welded steel machine bed can support heavy loads, while its absolute axis position-measuring system saves machining time by obviating the need for a reference run.

Two collapsible fixed stops accurately define the zero point enabling profile lengths up to 6 m to be processed.

Accessories available include a profile length measuring system, a second tool changer magazine with 3 spaces (in addition to the 5-space automatic tool changer provided as standard) and a ceiling kit consisting of a polycarbonate roof panel with fluorescent lighting.

The AF 250 CNC machine is part of Schueco’s philosophy to provide its fabricator partners with a wide range of advanced machinery to enable them to achieve the highest levels of productivity and consistent quality.
