Multi Head CNC Controlled

Automatic CNC repositioning of multiple cutting heads

Application where the user needs the flexibility to cut a wide range of disparate parts from the same parent material.

Automatic repositioning of the cutting heads in CNC mode allows for the best material utilization and productivity. The cutting program can frequently utilize some heads to cut a pair of large parts, then use the other heads to process parts simultaneously out of the same material sheet.

This is made possible by the use of Fanuc linear drives on each cutting carriage, with positional guidance from high-resolution Heidenhain linear scales.
