MECAL KOSMOS CNC Profile Machining Center

Floor type vertical spindle CNC machining centre designed to work on extruded aluminum, light alloy, PVC and light steel materials.

The Mecal Kosmos can be configured with 3 or 4 CNC axis.

The 3 axis version has a fixed beam where the clamps are mounted, CNC unit of the machine performs milling operations through linear and circular interpolation (compound movements) on 3 axes (X-Y-Z)

The 4 axis version has a rotating beam where the clamps are mounted (Axis A), that allows the rotation on any angle within ±125° around X-axis. This allows processing on any surface within ± 125° without aggregates.

Spindle can work on 3 faces with standard tools and work on both ends with disc cutter (end-milling operations).

Both the 3 and 4 axes versions can be equipped with head driven (DPM) or self motorized (MMI) clamps.

The machine is equipped with a 6 kW, 18000 rpm electro-spindle with ISO 30 tool holder system and a 10 tools capacity magazine as standard. 

The machine can be programmed using Mecal’s geometrical assisted CAM software as well as standard ISO codes.

GENERAL

Mecal Kosmos is a vertical spindle aluminum profile CNC machining centre available either in 3 or 4 axes. The machine can work with aluminum extrusions, as well as vinyl extrusions, light alloy and light steel profiles. It comes as standard with a 6 kW, 18000 rpm electro-spindle with ISO 30 tool holder system and a 10 tool magazine even if an 8.5 kW spindle is available as optional.

The 4 axes configuration features a rotating beam equipped with a clamping system to properly hold the extrusions during the machining process.

The Mecal Kosmos allows linear and circular interpolation on 3 axes (X,Y,Z). The A axis is the beam rotation on any angle within ±125° around X-axis. This enables machining on any surface generated by the rotation of the work-piece with standard tools

Using a drill, milling bit or a tap, it is possible to work on 3 sides of the profile, also the machine can perform end-milling operations by using milling cutter.

The 2 pneumatically operated reference stops are standard and located on each end of the rotating beam.

CLAMPING

The Kosmos aluminum profile CNC machining centre can be equipped with head driven (DPM) or self motorized (MMI) clamps. The self motorized (MMI) clamps are capable to go to calculated positions moving simultaneously, independently and rapidly.

PROGRAMMING

Programming both with Mecal ISO programming or Mecal CAD3D graphic CAD/CAM software are standard. Optional STEP/IGES driver CADLink is available for companies prefer to work with a third party 3D design software.
