Editor’s pickSCM opens up a new era for drilling
SCM’s products were met with great interest and appreciation from hundreds of visitors from all over the world, making their open-house event a resounding success. The event, “Drilling is no longer boring”, was held from the 18th to the 20th of October in the Technology Centre in SCM’s Headquarters in Rimini, Italy, to present a preview of the new morbidelli NC drilling machinery that also showcased the excellent teamwork of the SCM designers, technicians and specialists who accepted this new high-tech challenge.
Absolute quality and superior precision, combined with unbeatable productivity and ease of use. These are the strengths of the new range of numerically controlled drilling solutions that SCM.
The event was an opportunity to discover first-hand the new generation of the morbidelli cx220 and cx210 machines, the world-leading compact CN drilling solutions, and the new morbidelli ux200d, a more complete and flexible CN drilling solution, all offered in an effort to meet the growing needs for customised and integrated production, that is, granting producers the possibility of satisfying any given customer’s special requirements without giving up on the benefits of industrial production. Every detail in these machines has been designed with meticulous care in order to allow all the required machining operations to be performed with high efficiency, top quality and advanced technology.
“The new morbidelli CN drilling solutions,” said Bruno Di Napoli, SCM Machining Centres BU Manager, “are the result of a comprehensive analysis of market requests, of research and development work, of the Group's extensive know-how acquired over the years, and of the extraordinary teamwork of numerous SCM designers, technicians and specialists.”
morbidelli cx220 and cx210
The new generation of CN drilling models cx220 and cx210 adds some significant innovations to the compact and fast morbidelli cx series, already an ideal solution for batch-1 machining.
The new compact drilling heads, with its new design, will help in achieving hitherto undreamt of high levels of performance and efficiency.
The worktable allows drilling of delicate surfaces with superior finishing results, while the new profiling hold-down grippers allow you to machine panels even on the inside of the gripper area, while cutting down cycle times and optimising workpiece changes.
Other significant innovations are the new panel return systems with automatic unloading and the possibility of having new customised spindles for customised machining.
The SCM drilling revolution is in clear evidence in the new generation of morbidelli ux machines, with their new exclusive functions, and in the morbidelli ux200d machine with its greater performance machining both small and large panels.
A noteworthy feature in the morbidelli ux200d is the new exclusive dowelling system with dual variable-axis broaches that can be adjusted according to the distance between holes, a solution that makes this model even more versatile and efficient for drilling, routing and sawing processes. Among the features available in the entire series are the automatic tool change magazines for both the upper and lower spindles, used for simultaneous machining of opposite sides of panels, and the new Clamex spindles for customised joints.
Other advantages are the highly advanced computer software controlling the drilling cycles and the ability to automatically load panels of any size.
Highly versatile, morbidelli ux200d can operate as a stand-alone machine or as an integrated part of a production line, with various types of workpiece conveyors and loading-unloading systems.
Save the date: “Smart & Human Factory”
“You will never work alone” is the concept of the Open House what will be taking place next year at SCM’s Technology Centre from January 31st to February 2nd.
There, SCM will introduce a forefront production model in which digital and automation systems that will enable advanced human-machine interaction with flexible, modular machinery that is easy to reconfigure, making mass customisation possible with far less waste, optimising your workflow.
