Product Highlight: Improved Conturex CNC system for furniture and frames

Weinig has made a further addition to the Conturex CNC system with a new solution for furniture and frame construction. The C 125 Vario Furniture marks a new milestone in the evolution of the Conturex system.

The C 125 Vario Furniture is based on proven patented clamping table technology and combines maximum output with optimal flexibility. The new development is designed as a double-part system with special individual clamping technology. In keeping with this design, the C 125 Vario Furniture has parallel charging and unloading. This allows an output of two parts per minute in furniture applications. Two interpolating 5-axis heads ensure optimal flexibility with complex curved parts.

The large parts buffer for up to 240 parts fulfils the prerequisites for long-term unmanned production. Integration into the Weinig Solid Wood Work Flow (WF) system ensures dynamic process sequences optimised in real time. Behind this stands an integrated software solution from idea to finished work piece. Besides the benefits of a standardised data set for all production processes, and the entire peripherals, WF includes parts identification via different processes, work piece data administration including an interface with angle units and monitoring via app and desktop. Owing to the comprehensive digital architecture, WF is ideally suited to virtual commissioning.

One highlight of the C 125 Vario Furniture is the new Weinig CAM. This is a 3D CAD/CAM system, that can be integrated into every Conturex going forward. Weinig CAM also offers a fully-fledged drawing programme with smart commands. All standard CAD formats, such as dxf, dwg, solid, stl, rhino and parasolid, are supported. Unlike conventional systems that do not allow 3D surface processing, Weinig CAM includes 3D 5-axis interpolation. Other features include greater reliability thanks to detailed simulation down to single-item batches, simple operation via macro programming and modular design from 2D to 3D interpolation.

Product Manager Michael Hemmerich says, “This is not only a general technical trend, it is also completely consistent since the Conturex is a fully-automated production machine.”
