RIGIDITY BECOMES DYNAMIC
Matrix 800 design has focused on the development of an extremely robust structure to guarantee the necessary thrusts and stiffness to perform high-feed roughing, top-of-the-range semi-finishing and finishing operations and, at the same time, to offer the ideal dynamic, speed and accelerations for those who are looking for the highest production performances. Several design choices allowed achieving this level of stiffness, for example its monobloc structure and the bridge/RAM structure, among the strongest in their category. This great solidity has been perfectly improved with special technical devices in order to keep high dynamics. For example, High Dynamics technology allows considerably reducing friction factors, especially those caused by the balancing system, thus obtaining jerk, accelerations and speed never seen before in a machine with such thrusts. This means not only excellent levels of precision and finishing quality, but also a significant reduction of operating times.
3. REDUCTION OF INSTALLATION TIME AND COSTS
Particular attention has been paid to installation time and costs. The rigidity of the monobloc structure allows for simple flat foundations. All this has been studied to minimize the use of anti-shrinkage cement and chemical anchors for ground fixing. In addition to the costs of these materials, the solution also makes it possible to avoid time-consuming construction works for the preparation of the area where the machine will be positioned.
The market is increasingly responsive to delivery times. Once a customer needs to invest in a new machine and has identified the necessary features and customizations, he wants to have it in place as soon as possible. To satisfy these requirements, we have reviewed the entire assembly flow of the machine. The choice of a transversal orientation of the monobloc structure makes the Matrix 800 transportable with the main structures already assembled. In this way, we lead the Customer to have a significant saving in costs and installation time. In fact, in the standard version, it only takes 2 weeks to pass from the receipt of the machine to its production start-up.
