Modernizing conventional machining
Mill version also for vocational training, with 3 handwheels and basic functions for conventional milling, drilling and threading.
The precision milling machine PICOMAX 56 L 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.
Larger clamping surface
The L Version has extended X travel of 800 mm, compared to the standard model, and a clamping surface of 1400 x 480 mm.
Extra long workpieces can be machined in a single step without repositioning. More possibilities are available for 4-axis machining with a dividing unit. Thanks to the increased distance between the dividing unit and tail stock, longer workpieces can also be machined efficiently.
Even the basic model of this FEHLMANN machine "made in Switzerland" offers the features of a modern, highly productive milling machine, such as: fully digital Heidenhain controls TNC 620, a Fehlmann cooled and high-torque motor spindle for universal milling up to 12'000 rpm, Z/S interpolated thread cutting, 3D milling, boring, etc.
Furthermore, the PICOMAX 56 L 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 and more.
Also perfectly suited for modern vocational training
From the basics of milling to advanced CNC applications, the mill version of the PICOMAX 56 L is also ideally suited for modern, practice-oriented training - for both conventional and CNC machining. With the FEHLMANN mill functions and the three mechnaical 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.
Switch from beginner to expert mode with the turn of a key
This milling machine can be quickly switched to a simple conventional machine with a turn of the additional key-operated CNC/manual switch. Instructors can configure and save the desired settings based on the level of instruction.
The simple and logical operation, a modern and compact machine concept, the technical features and a high degree of flexibility make the PICOMAX 56 L 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.
- Extra-long workpieces can be machined in one single step, without re-positioning
- Several fixtures can be mounted simultaneously on the 1400 x 480 mm clamping surface
- 4-axis machining of extra-long workpieces
- Efficient and economical machining of complex parts using the Heidenhain TNC 620 and the graphically supported cycles
- 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
