Machine of the Month:
The CMS North America-Brembana Speed TR
The CMS North America-Brembana Speed TR is engineered for intricate working of stone materials. The CNC system allows for pendular working of large-sized workpieces -- up to 3600 mm -- with optimum safety and minimal downtime for loading and unloading operations. The work area measures 142 x 63 inches, and the machining center is able to carry out any sort of cutting, shaping and grinding operations. It accomplishes inclined recesses, pockets, grooves, inlays, sculptures and profiles as well as polishing, circular cutting, drilling, engraving and three-dimension machining operations.
The machine was engineered to provide a â€œminimum spaceâ€ solution for manufacturers, and to complement the line of Brembana stone CNC processing machines and bridge saws. It works on three axes and has an automatic tilting head, telescoping spindle extension; and Easy Stone CAD/CAM software. The Speed TR has all the standard features of the Speed 3 and Maxima machines with the addition of a very large circular rotating table with two working areas that allow material to be loaded and unloaded during the machining process.
The positioning of vacuum cups is achieved by laser projection, and the machine has a 26-station tool rack. Purchase of the machine from CMS North America includes two weeks training at CMS as well as one week of on-site training.
