Low-quality imports, the bulk of which are clones of equipment created decades ago, dominate the market for inexpensive machine tools. There hasn’t been much innovation. However, full-sized CNC machine tools are far more expensive, costing between tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars, and require three-phase power to operate. A full-sized CNC mill-turn center typically costs more than $300,000, as a point of comparison.
The Swissmak combines all the capabilities of CNC mills and lathes. The 16 station live toll turret makes it quick and simple to turn parts, and the swiveling BT30 milling head enables you make features at any angle.
On a 5-axis mill-turn machine, you can create any part geometry you like. The Swissmak is designed to be strong and rigid in a small area. In addition to cutting metal, this machine can also cut wood, ceramic, plastic, and composite materials. The commotion and noise are contained by a complete chip and coolant cage.
For a single machine control system, industry-standard CNC controllers from ᴍᴀɴufacturers like Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain, and Mitsubishi can cost more than $10,000. ᴍᴀɴy thousands more are added for each additional servo axis. There are 11 servos in our SwissMak machine. We have chosen to create our own control system based on electronics and software for open-source 3D printers. SwissMaks are operated and programmed using a touch screen Windows PC. The software is simple to use and supports G-code files through drag-and-drop. Users can construct macro programs and pre-made canned cycles using our interface, as well as keep track of their tools.
We built the SwissMak to operate in a variety of control modes, including Lathe Mode, 4 Axis Milling Mode, Horizontal Machining Mode, and 3+2 Mode because the majority of customers prefer to use their own CAD/CAM software. Users can run G-code programs from CAM software by switching between these control modes without needing to purchase pricey proprietary software or a post-processor. Single phase 22 ov power, which is used in homes and businesses worldwide, powers the devices.
