Ino XP 7000 – 3 Axis CNC Profile Machining Center
The ino XP 7000 is a 3 Axis CNC Profile Machining center designed for processing profiles with high precision and speed.
The machine is basically designed for machining light alloy profiles such as aluminium (up to 20 mm wall thickness), pvc, copper, steel up to 20 mm wall thickness, stainless steel up to 2 mm wall thickness.
Thanks to the high precision and the large processing capabilities, the machine is suitable for all windows and doors profiles, curtain wall profiles, unitized curtain wall profiles, automotive industry, aviation industry, bus industry and furniture industry.
The 7.3 meter net machining length of the machine is divided into 2 working zones of 3.500 mm each and the machine functions in 2 stations that can be independently programmed.
The drilling operations and the milling operations are drawn thanks to 3D CAD-CAM Profile Machining software and the G codes are carried through a CNC Controller to the machine milling spindle.
The profiles are connected on pneumatic clamping units that can take profiles up to 400 X 300 mm of size and 7.300 mm of length.
The pneumatic clamping units can be positioned automatically by the machining bridge.
In case the operations cause any collusion of the spindle on the clamps, the machine moves the clamps away from the crash automatically.
XP 7000 has 2 spindles connected on the Z axis.
The first spindle is working from the top and the second spindle is an angular spindle that is working from the sides of the profile.
The top spindle has 7.5 kW with 24.000 rpm driven through an inverter of 10 kW for adjusting the speed from 1 to 24.000 rpm.
The machine is designed with a stationary automatic tool changer magazine placed in the middle of the machine with 8 positions.
The reason that the magazine is stationary is that many different sizes of tools can be placed.
In the magazine the operator can place (at the same time) up to 4 angular heads, 2 disc cutters between minimum 40 mm and up to maximum 300 mm of diameter and drilling tools with a size of 150 mm length.
These tool sizes are the biggest sizes among the competitors in the world. The horizontal angular spindle is 3,0 kW 18.000 rpm without a tool changer placed in front of the vertical spindle, driven by an inverter of 5,5 kW that can adjust the speed between 1-18.000 rpm.
Thanks to the 3 independent spindles working on the 3 sides of the profile, the time for tool changing is decreased dramatically.
There is automatic tool length measurement device to measure the size of the tools on the 3 sides of the spindle. The machine can check the size of the tool each time before start processing on the profile, to be sure that the operations are carried out with the perfect precision.
Pneumatic clamps are designed especially for machining the largest profiles that can be extruded.
When processing from the top, the clamps can hold a profile bar up to 400 mm of width and 300 mm of height.
When processing from the 3 sides of the profiles, the machine can machine 300 mm X 300 mm. This size is the largest among all the competitors in 3 axis profile machining centers league.
The dust extraction roller conveyor is placed under the machine, it can work to the left or to the right side for extracting the swarf caused by the machining of the profiles.
Profile Machining Software
The machine works with a customized software for processing profiles.
Thanks to the Profile Processing Software, dxf drawings of the profiles to be processed are imported by the operator and displayed in 3D on the screen.
The length of the profile is entered, each hole or slot or free shape is recorded as a macro, then these macros are introduced as the operations to be performed on the profile. These macros are selected and placed on the profile.
In case the same operations shall be carried out on different profiles, the software will set the same operations parametrically on different length, prepare the machining program by making all calculations automatically and show the simulation of the machining.
The processing programs are all listed on the HMI, profile orientation, 3D view, size, operations, customer information etc. all appear in this list.
The operator uses the machine by selecting the next operation on the list one by one. Profile processing software has been designed and developed as user friendly as possible to maintain the fastest training for the machine’s use.
An office program is used in case it is desired to prepare machining files also in the office to speed up the work.
In the office version, the technician working in the office can easily prepare the operations as if they were next to the machine and see the operations on the simulation screen.
In the office version, the technician does not only prepare the processing programs, but also imports data for the cutting machine by preparing an optimized cut list according to the cutting lengths of the profiles to be processed.
It produces barcodes from the cutting machine and the machining center operator reads this barcode to process the profile.
Optionally, it prepares the machining programs on the machines by importing information from Orgadata, Schücal ReynaPRO and similar manufacturing software.
These softwares work with much higher efficiency when they use our Profile Processing Software to execute their output files.
These processing programs can be run and shared on other machines regardless of their brands by obtaining additional licenses for different machines.
With our Profile Processing Software, the company will have unlimited software abilities.
Machine net processing length is 7.300 mm.
It is possible to machine 2 profiles in double station mode with each 3.500 mm length. Profile processing dimensions of the machine is from the top and from the back of the profile is 400 mm. X 300 mm. From the top, from the back and from the front 300 mm. X 300 mm.
Any kind of industrial or windows and doors or “Unitized Cladding” system profiles can be processed; thanks to the special clamp design, it is very easy to connect fixtures on them.
Electrowelded steel structure normalized with thermal treatment.
The main body of the machine is processed in 5 Axis CNC Steel Machining Center.
All the body is painted with powder coating.
Mostly all the mechanical pieces are die-casted and machined in our own CNC machining centers.
During the design period our design team prioritize the operators’ ease of use and ergonomy of the machines in the first place.
We don’t only use steel and aluminium in the mechanical structure; but we also use fiberglass casted pieces to decrease the weight of the machining bridge and give the machine a more esthetic look.
Tool Changer Magazine
Linear type magazine placed in the middle of the machine with 8 positions.7 pieces of milling tools and one disc cutter are placed next to each other.
The magazine is covered with a pneumatic moving protection cover that is made of fiber material to protect the tools from sawdust.
It is also very simple to reach the tools and change the cutters or collets attached, by walking behind the machine and opening the protection cover.
Electrical Box and Controller Terminal
There is a separate electrical box that is mostly placed at the back of the machine with wheels under the cabinet.
Plus there is a user terminal also with wheels and with a PC on it; connected to the electrical cabinet via 1 Ethernet cable that has a length of 5 meters.
The operator can move the user terminal independently. Optionally it is possible to connect A/C on the electrics box.
On the user terminal, there are keyboard, mouse, handwheel and a button set composed of on/off button, start button, axis moving buttons, feedrate regulator and emergency button.
