Vertical CNC milling and drilling centre for glass, optionally with water jet technology
The MRX-B, optionally available with water jet technology, is a fully automatic milling and drilling machine for glass that delivers high performance combined with easy operation.
What is the MRX-B milling and drilling machine used for?
Versatility is an important asset of the MRX-B: It can be used for drilling, milling, countersinking and grinding. Drill and countersunk holes can be processed just as efficiently as complex corners, edges and inner cut-outs. The MRX-B WJ version (the WJ stand for WaterJet) adds the advantage of the optional water jet cutter, which significantly speeds up cut-out processes.
Is the machine fully automated?
The drilling and milling centre operates fully automatically and supports data links to external systems. Graphically supported entry of processing programs and automatic selection of all drilling and milling parameters make operation easy and error-free.
What are the milling and drilling machine's configuration options?
The MRX-B can be configured to suit individual customer requirements. The Linear-8 tool changer keeps the operation very simple, while the Roto-10 changer increases the process speed. Highest processing speed can be achieved by combining the Roto-10 magazine with the water jet cutting head. Modular expansion of the machine length and free choice of running direction allow for a wide range for customer configurations. The system is also part of the SplitFin processing solution.
Which cycle times are possible with the MRX-B WJ?
The MRX-B WJ achieves extremely fast cycle times. For a shower door with two Mickey Mouse cut-outs and a handle hole the system needs less than 90 seconds. Processing the same door with ground cut-outs takes less than two and a half minutes. These rapid processing times are enabled by technical refinements. For example, positioning the water jet cutting head directly below the processing spindle on the same axle allows faster changes between tools and waterjet processing. Furthermore, mounting the tool changer directly on the processing spindle speeds up the tool changes, right at the processing location where the tool is required. This minimizes unproductive idle times.
