Ficep’s CNC drilling line is Rapid

The Rapid from Ficep is a new CNC high speed drilling line for angles and flats offering high productivity, quality, flexibility, accuracy and lower production costs. The machine has the option of using indexable carbide drilling tools.

The CNC materials handling system loads the angles on to the conveyor track which then automatically clamps the workpiece in position, and every process then takes place sequentially.

The two drilling heads are equipped with direct drive spindles, each of which has an automatic, six-position tool. The CNC system controls spindle positioning and feed rates and linear guides with controlled servomotors and ball screws ensure maximum precision on every axis. A new additional auxiliary axis of 200mm allows independent control of the two spindles in the length (X) axis.



The Rapid CNC drilling lines are also modular and can therefore incorporate scribing, hard stamp marking, single or double shearing or alternatively, high speed circular carbide saw.

The processed angles, scrap or swarf can be automatically offloaded at predetermined or selectable positions along the unloading area to reduce manual handling and sorting.
