The XT Series is a CNC Panel Working Machinery specialized for machining aluminium & aluminium composite panels. Also called in the market as Alucobond or ACP panels or ACM panels. The machine first grooves and then cuts the aluminium panels by using diamonds cutters using a high speed spindle motor, holds the panels by vacuuming with a vacuum table and high power vacuuming pump, extracts the swarf coming out from the panel by a dust extraction system through steel pipes. The dust extraction system is projected according to the customer’s factory lay-out; the projecting ıs optionally presented to the customer.
The axis movements are carried through brushless servo motors and controlled by a real CNC controller. The machine can process light alloy materials such as: aluminium composite panels, aluminium panels up to 20 mm of wall thickness, backalite, copper, acrylic, plexi-glass and etc.
The vacuuming table is made from cast polyethylene connected on the aluminium body. The user does not need to isolate the table with gaskets like in the old system. The vacuuming is isolated inside the vacuuming system on the aluminium body and has a giant panel vacuuming power. This is a very new technology only used by ino Machinery.
The vacuuming table is divided into 8 vacuuming zones. Each zone is controlled by a 24V pneumatic valves to open and close. Those valves are controlled by the CNC controller, automaticaly opened and closed according to the size of the panel. In ino XT series, the machine decides itself which zone to open and which zone to close, free from the operators’ decision, so that the panel is clamped perfectly on the table and will not move during the machining cycle.
There are 2 models in machining method:
First is the double-spindle and the second is the automatic tool changer model. In the first model, 2 spindles each 5,5 kW 18.000 rpm, driven by DC inverter to adjust the rotation speed. Spindles are working one by one, first spindle is grooving and the second is sizing the workpiece. This machining method causes much less time for tool changing and increases the productivity. This model is widely used in aluminium composite panel machining.
In the second method, there is one piece of 9,0 kW 24.000 rpm spindle and a tool changer of 6 positions, when the machine should work with different tools, it changes itself.
The referance pins are also controlled according to the work-flow completely audited by the CNC controller and free from the operators’ decision. In the double station models it is used 8 pins.
In the 6.500 mm models, the machine works with a mentality of twin station and the operator can place 2 different panls up to 3.200 mm size on the machine and the operator offloads the panels that are finished, while the machine keeps on working on the other station. Compared to the single station models, this kind of working enables the machine to produce nearly 50% more.
The dust extractor is mounted on the spindle, collecting nearly 100% of the dust caused by the working cycle and keeps the machine clean. The surface of the panel is prevented from the scratches that may be caused by the dust dropping on the panel.
