Two New Models Keep Scharmann's Super-Fast Ecospeeds Ahead In Machining Centre Stakes

Added to MTDCNC by Starrag UK Limited on 25 February 2016

Two new Scharmann Ecospeed machining centres have been announced by Starrag UK to extend the range of machines that utilise the unique parallel kinematic head for outstanding metal removal rates: a four-tonne aluminium billet can be transformed into a 120 kgs complex structural part in less than 20 hours when an Ecospeed is running at a maximum cutting volume of up to 8,000 cm3/min.

The new models – the Ecospeed 20210 and Ecospeed F 1040 – are also complemented by the Sprint Z3 machining head.

Both new Ecospeeds feature 120 kW, 30,000 rev/min motors and have the option of a C axis to allow the use of automatic interchangeable angular milling heads.

Of column-type design, the Ecospeed 20210 has X and Y axes travels of 28.1 m and 2.2 m, respectively, while the stationary crossbeam Ecospeed F 1040 can handle pallets up to 1 m by 4 m.

The performance and flexibility of the Ecospeed is further enhanced by the Sprint Z3 machining head which uses three parallel linear axes drives mounted radially equi-spaced in the headstock. The spindle platform is connected to each drive via rigid levers with pivots at each end and a ball joint at the other.

When all three axes move simultaneously, the spindle is moved in a straight line in Z; synchronised motion of the three Z axes allows the spindle to follow any path within a spherical cone of +/- 40deg at a maximum of 80deg/sec. If the three axes move differentially, the spindle platform will be tilted in the A/B kinematic.
