The precision milling machine PICOMAX 56 is also available in the mill version.
Specially optimized for simple, conventional milling tasks – thus allowing for optimal entry into modern cutting technology. Operates like a full-fledged conventional milling and drilling machine, without the necessity of programming knowledge.
This '"made in Switzerland" machine already offers various equipment features of a modern, powerful milling machine in the basic version, i.e.: fully digital Heidenhain controls TNC 620, FEHLMANN liquid-cooled and high-torque motor spindle for universal milling up to 12,000 rpm, as well as Z/S-interpolated thread cutting, 3D-milling, boring, etc..
Furthermore, the PICOMAX 56 mill is upgradeable with various functional machine options, such as a FEHLMANN dividing unit for 4-axis operation, an automatic tool changer with 20 or 30 pockets, etc.
Also perfectly suited for modern vocational training
From the basics of milling to advanced CNC applications, the mill version of the PICOMAX 56 is also ideally suited for modern, practice-oriented training - for both conventional and CNC machining. With the FEHLMANN mill functions and the three mechanical handwheels, the controls function as a simple digital display. This allows basic conventional milling knowledge to be taught up close and with maximum operator safety, thanks to the safety door.
The simple and logical operation, a modern and compact machine concept, the technical features and a high degree of flexibility make the PICOMAX 56 mill the perfect machine for training.
Characteristics and Highlights
- Manual and CNC operation, for manual machining without giving up the advantages of a CNC machine - switch to CNC mode at any time at a push of a button
- FEHLMANN mill functions, a simplified operating concept which enables single parts and small series to be milled, drilled and thread-cut rapidly and precisely. The mill package includes three labeled, parallel-active mechanical-electronic handwheels for the X, Y and Z axes, as well as the basic functions for conventional milling, drilling and tapping, without any programming knowledge.
- Using the Heidenhain TNC 620 controls and the graphically supported cycles, complex parts are machined very economically
- Robust, handy and versatile
- Space saving and clearly laid out, due to ergonomic and compact construction
- Simple machining tasks are executed conventionally using the three handwheels!
- Easy and efficient to operate, even without programming knowledge
